I can't believe it's already Thursday! Where are the weeks going?! Not that I'm complaining, I'm pretty much counting down the seconds til I'm home for the Easter, so I can get down to earning those precious pennies once more. I'm probably going to be a bit AWOL, so to speak, towards the end of the month, I've got a crazy amount planned (as per usual) but more on that later...

(Mint green crinkle lace top, Topshop 2010;
Chain detail bodycon skirt, H&M;
Tan plaited belt, Primark - as if I needed to say!
Polka dot tights, Primark;
Rings, all from Topshop;
Umbrella necklace, Accessorize;
Scrabble bracelet, VIPXO.)

I'm going to put my hands up and admit that this was somewhat of a cheat outfit, although I am currently wearing it. I slept in until 8.20am this morning, despite having slept at 10pm last night and needing to be out of the door for 8.35am at a push! I'm so tired recently! So when I left the flat this morning, I was in this top, layered over a H&M tunic, and a pair of leggings. It was the most uncomfortable outfit ever, so I took advantage of my two-hour break to change into something more "me" and snap some photos for you! Oh to be a student/fashion blogger(!) I'm really into clashing prints and patterns at the moment, whether subtly like in today's outfit, or all out clashing as I'm planning for my final portfolio shoot at Uni. It's a bit of a hit-and-miss trend, but is easily done!

It was ridiculously windy today. I had a middle partin' sitch going on for the majority of my four walks across Southy, to and from Uni! Not attractive on me in the slightest, especially because my hair needs a cut (I think). Cannot wait for nicer weather so I can just rock a default dress and cardy look everyday haha, although compiling yesterday's Ways to Wear really inspired me to try trousers at some point. Again, I just can't wait to get home for Easter and earn some money - hello new clothes!

Today I realised just how much I have again attempted to slot in for the month. As well as getting all my Uni work done (this involves a portfolio of eight features, a Styling portfolio and photoshoot, a fashion history presentation, a webpage and four written feature, an exhibition review and many evaluative blogs, I've got my work colleague's wedding to attend on the 29th, a Taylor Swift concert on the 30th, and a Writing Fashion and Culture social mixer on the 31st. I'm so excited for the mixer event though, we'll be meeting editors of ELLE, ASOS and Harper's Bazaar, eep!

Finally, I picked the winner of my playsuit giveaway with Dixi Fashion on Monday, and the winner was Charlene! Well done sweet, hope you enjoy your prize! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for reading and entering the contest (: Once again, this was a longer post than expected, so I'd better go and prepare my interview for a sports feature that I'm writing. (I know what you're thinking, a sports assignment on a fashion journalism course?!) Have a lovely Thursday!

PS. My nail varnish is Rain by Eyeko... Use my code (E10884) for a free gift with orders over £15 ;) I highly recommend Rain, Posh and Military polish, as well as Big Eyes mascara - my HG products!


  1. love your love ring! i've never seen it in my topshop :O lovely nail colour! im feeling blue too. and my hair got raped by the wind :( xx

  2. Can I ask where you got your glasses from? I'm looking for thick framed ones like these and love the frame shape!xx

  3. I love your outfit it really suits you! I know when you look outside it doesn't look to windy until you get out there. Trust me to wear my hair down today I'm being blown about every where! xoxo

  6. I adore that Reindeer ring (is it a reindeer? lol). I got totally blown away by the wind today (no pun intended) and had to give up on my hair.

I have a ton on aswell, final year is never a laugh. xx

    Your rings are amazing, especially the deer one. And good luck on your uni projects!

  21. Thanks Cherry!

    Aw thanks Amelia. I interned at Eyeko in the PR dept. last summer so know pretty much everything possible if you need any info! I'm glad you enjoy my blog, that means so so much! xx

  22. oh my gosh, I need that skirt in my life! It look great, I have a huge bodycon fetish, so this one would fit in amazingly.

  23. that is a lovely skirt! i have the same ring :)
    oh i do hope you feel less stressed out soon- on the plus side- taylor swift concert and harpers bazaar/asos convention? lucky ducky! x

  24. I nearly got knocked over by the wind today trying to get my train =| that's what I get for being 5 foot tall lol

    Your skirt's really pretty, I have thing for bodycon skirts at the moment. They look great and are so comfy!

  25. Aw your outfit is so cute :) Really lovely. I can't believe how busy your schedule is.. wow.. I'll be thinking twice before complaining about my workload. Luckily I've only got two more assignments (& two columns) left for this semester. Can't wait for summer to have a break from it all. That Writing Fashion and Culture social mixer sounds great too, you're so lucky getting to meet those people. How did you get involved in that? Good luck with everything and make sure you manage to still find some 'you' time amongst that workload xoxo

  26. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate at the moment but it'll be worth it in the end. The networking event sounds super useful!

    Liking the skirt and the belt and the stag ring is amazing!

  27. I love your rings :) I always have trouble finding good rings that I'll wear often! I usually wear them like twice and then stash them away somewhere :/

  28. That skirt is so lovely! Its the kind of thing Id never think to pick up in the store, but seeing dressed up as an outfit I've fallen in love :)

  29. i looveeee ur outfit & those rings... yummm :)


  30. Your rings are gorgeous! I want each and every one of them.

  31. i love that skirt, definitely going to keep my eye out for it! I can't believe how busy you are, wow! So exciting that you get to meet all of those editors though - sounds exciting!

    I'm so excited to receive the playsuit - thank you so much again xx

  32. love the skirt and all the rings
