Wearing my Annie Greenabelle skirt makes me slightly nostalgic for the beginning of the summer. Only slightly though, in the sense that I'm beginning to feel the nerves for my final year at University, and would rather have another 4 months off.
I decided to wear the Iris skirt today with the Boohoo shirt I ordered a week or two ago. It has the loveliest open back detailing, but is really long at the front, and I'm starting to think I might take to it with my scissors and sewing machine just so it is a little wearable. Love love the double pockets at the front though! I feel like I haven't got enough wear out of this skirt by any standards, so I'm excited to experiment with it over the autumn and winter, with a variety of thick knit tights, of course! Trying to work out whether a jumper would "work" with this skirt, but it probably wouldn't... the skirt is a tad pouffy, so we shall see.
I move back to Southampton for my final year at Uni on Thursday. (You wouldn't believe it from how full my bedroom is right now!) I still get asked a lot of questions about "how I'm preparing for my first year" which is really strange, but I'm going into my final year now, and am ready to buckle down with my work and start hunting for that ever elusive post-graduate position. I suppose this is a bit of a heads up in case I happen to disappear for days at a time from here (which I doubt: I'm unhealthily addicted to blogging). I've glanced over the reading list I compiled for my dissertation a few weeks ago, and have a LOT of work to get on with, but I've always seen my blog/the blogging community as a welcome break and place to relax, as opposed to something that would detract from Uni. I guess everyone is different though!
Currently scribbling little notes down for a haircare related post, which has been requested countless times, so if you have any questions about my hair, ask away! I'm still a bit bemused that people want to know about my hair to be honest, I always see it as an inconvenience, but hey ho ;) Off to paint my nails in Zoya 'Marine' which came in my September Boudoir Prive box, I'll keep you updated on the ol' Twitter as ever. Oh, and who else watched the season premiere of Gossip Girl today?! I OMG'd throughout the entire episode to myself! xo
By the way, I filmed a little vlog and outfit video with my sister today, I'm trying to work out how to edit on my laptop (I usually edit videos on Macs) but I might share it with you if anyone's interested? You can see my outfit in HD and in much more detail ;)
