Suitably soaked after deciding to leave the house on a grey Autumn day without a hood and/or umbrella. It was just my luck to catch the rain on my way out, as well as on the way home. Thank you, world. Grabbed a Pret-a-Manger hot chocolate on the way back, as well as Topshop's Head Over Heels blush. Needless to say, I'm glad to be wrapped up in my blanket, along with a coffee and bar of chocolate!


(Dress, Coco Fashion;
60-denier tights, H&M;
Jacket, H&M;
Faux fur stole, H&M;
Bag, Topshop;
Shoes, Primark.)

This is what I wore for a day of lectures and seminars: jewel colours, comfort and some style via the dress and tights. I didn't realise I was doubling as a walking advertisement for H&M today either, I love their range at the moment, it's so affordable and cosy enough for day-to-day wear. I still haven't found the perfect pair of jeans either, so until then, I'm going to battle onwards through the chill with tights - what else would you expect from me? Sneaky little appearance from my faux fur stole again; it has barely left my neck since I last wore it, I'm so pleased I bought the darker version too, it feels so luxe!

Tonight I'm going to bundle up in my duvet and be a bit of a recluse. My to-do list is epicly long for today, and I've not even looked at it yet. I need to get some blog theory reading done, conduct some surveys, research blogs and then edit an essay. Third year is such a killer, but I'm seriously enjoying the work so far. (Pipe down, nerd.) I made a random guest appearance in our blogging lecture too, with my tips and advice on layout coding! I think that can easily be noted down as one of my top five most embarrassing moments, the top one being a casual faceplant outside a club a few months ago...

Anyway, I'm going to kick off my action-packed (or not!) evening with some compulsory viewing of this week's Gossip Girl! Catch you on Twitter?

  1. Another wonderful outfit Michelle! Especially like the colour of your dress, such a nice rich green.

    I hate it when you brave the weather and then it rains. That's why I always take an umbrella with me, it's my must have.

    The backdrop of these images are beautiful. I need to get some dissertation work sorted also, it's motivational when you actually enjoy what you're writing about! x

  23. Hey, just stumbled across your blog and wanted to leave a little note. I love your outfit choice here, very casual yet chic. It's the look I always aspire to but never quite pull off! I also agree with your suggestion that a blog should be read accompanied by a sweet beverage (I would dare to add hot and steamy to those criteria) and favourite music. Blog-hopping is such a great way to indulge :) Anyway, I digress, good job :)

  27. Great plan with Gossip Girl, that's what I'm up to this evening as well! Loving the h&m outfit, I got a lovely woolly cardigan in there the other day. Also, I find my best jeans in topshop, have you tried there? xxx

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that jacket! I know the feeling, I'm a walking advertisement for H&M pretty often :) But hey, I got to support the Swedish companies!

  29. Looking very glamorous in that first pic Michelle - almost like you had a wind machine to hand!

    That dress is so cute, and the fur goes perfectly with this outfit. I picked up the lighter coloured one the other day and I've practically worn it ever since!

  30. Kudos to you for the public speaking! My face burns a violent shade of red if more than two people look at me when speaking!
    A hot chocolate/duvet day sounds like a winner, as long as it's very chocolatey hot chocolate and none of that lite rubbish!

  37. Ria: Thank you lovely! It was so embarrassing haha, I'm awful when put on the spot! I'm sure 99.9% of my course hates me as well, no-one ever talks to me outside of my circle of friends :P Now if I don't get a First for this module, someone's gon' get hurt ;) Outside Wahoo, 90's and Revolution on seperate occasions! Such an embarrassment to the world...! xxx

    Grace: Awh thanks Grace! I've finally found a really good hair routine for the wind and rain (: Eeeep, it was a pretty good episode, let me know when you've seen it! x

    Elise: Thank you (:

    Amy: Aww thanks Amy :D I think I'm just a nerd at heart, but am absolutely in my element at the moment with it all. x

  43. Thank-you for the comment my lovely, I always mean to buy it! And never get round to it, and it's always in Blogger giveaways! I'd hope so to, although someone commented a little further below to say that she was interviewed and she said she didn't miss designing and won't do it again, which is such a shame! But when you've been let down like that you can understand!

  44. I totally agree - H&M are just perfect for affordable, everyday wear. I'm usually wearing at least once piece of H&M everyday! That Topshop blush is next on my list too :)
    That's really cool that you're giving blogging advice in lectures - though I do know what you mean, must be a little weird! Haha!
