Woke up late today and got ready in approximately 12 minutes, are you proud?! I don't know where the days are going at the moment, but I'm not complaining - just eight more days of assignments and then I'll be home for Easter.



(Nude/peach sheer blouse, New Look;
Floral culottes, Topshop from a few years ago;
Tights, H&M;
Brogues, Primark;
Rings, Topshop, JWLRY, Accessorize.)

This outfit is quite similar to one I posted a few weeks ago, but with more of a refined and tailored edge to it. The blouse and shorts are definitely my favourite pieces of clothing, I'm always wearing them, just in different ways! I'm slowly but surely adding colour to my wardrobe for the summery season, watch this space. I bought my first pair of brogues the other week, from Primark, and have instantly fallen in love with them. They look too cute paired with my cream knitted tights from H&M, and makes the outfit look a bit more contemporary and young, considering I'm wearing a buttondown blouse. I've seen even more blouses in New Look that I want to pick up recently, and they're currently running a 20% off promotion with vouchers in the in-store magazine, so grab a copy if you can!

Just wanted to say thank you for all the feedback on my post from Monday regarding tapered trousers: I think you've all persuaded me to pick up a pair, and I'll probs buy a pair of wedges too, just to balance my body out. I'm glad you're all still enjoying the Ways to Wear feature, I loved reading your comments in response to yesterday's edition which was requested by Bee! I've also finally got round to updating this fortnight's recommended blog in the sidebar: this fortnight features Michelle of The Feather Den, whose blog I am completely in love with. Finally, I added a nifty subscribe by email bar in the sidebar, so if you don't have a Blogger or Twitter account, you can still receive updates whenever I post!

Right, well I'm going to head back into Uni for my last seminar of the day now. I'm hoping to half-sprint home so I'll have maximum time to complete some more work, eat dinner at a reasonable hour, watch Eastenders (how cute are Abi and Jay?!) and catch up on blogs! Have a lovely Thursday!

  2. Love this outfit, so cute! I'm desperate to get those Primark brogues but the train to get there costs more than the shoes themselves :(
    Ooh thank you for the heads-up about New Look! xxx

  9. Haha, I can get ready in 5 normally, but then I tend to choose what I wear the day before and set it out, because my wardrobe is under my bed and I don't want to force the boyfriend to get up so I can get to it! (we live on a boat so storage is tight)

    Lovely outfit! So springlike!

  14. Thanks Elodie! I can't stop wearing this blouse, it's constantly in and out of the wash! x

    Aw thanks Heather (: Oh gosh that sucks, I'm "lucky" in that I have a Primark both at home and at Uni! Granted they're both pretty rubbish stores, but they have a good range of shoes and accessories! You're welcome sweet, happy shopping ;) xxx

    Thank you Elise! I took inspiration from a photograph that I saw on Tumblr actually haha (: The Primark ones are gorgeous, not too heavy(?) which I kept finding from most other brogues! x

    Eee I know Gem! My flatmates and I spent all Tuesday evening 'aww-ing' at their hot launderette date! Oh to be 14 again...! Oh no, that's crap! I like the little heel on the Primark ones ^_^ xxxx

    Thank you Molly!

    Thanks Alex (: I lovelove this blouse, so easy to dress up and down! I often wear it with leggings! xxx

    It really is nice and comfy, Jenmarie! The perfect peachy nude colour for Spring as well! x

    Thank you Wei Han <3 This is the only floral I have in my wardrobe at the moment, but its by far my favourite item in there (:

    Awee, I'd love to live on a boat Amy! Gosh it takes me about 5 minutes to wake myself up and work out which direction my wardrobe is ;) I usually just throw something on in the morning to be honest, but having a vague plan the night before would make my life much MUCH easier! xxx

    You're welcome Jade! Happy spending & saving! Mm me either, I want to do so much baking, sleeping, gossiping and working in the Easter break (: Thanks lovely, I was always really uncertain with brogues on me to be honest, but I'm officially a convert! xxx

    Aw thanks Kate, but I'm definitely not! The brogues are so cute and comfy aren't they?! xx
