Had such a ridiculously long day at Uni today, 'Crimes of Fashion' lectures and seminars paired with a guest lecture that I absolutely hated. Oh well, life goes on, and I'm sat tapping away at my laptop once again, so all is well! I really liked my outfit today as well, even though it isn't really anything special: just another jumper and dress foolproof look.

I'm still a huge fan of the olive green, khaki tones at the moment, such a lovely mid-neutral colour palette that transitions well all year round - perfect for me and my Spring Summer fearing ways! The dress underneath is one I wore at the start of the year: LOVE how versatile it already seems to be though, which is a winner in my eyes. It looks completely different simply by covering up the white lace, and will be gorgeous with a light tan (wishful thinking?) and some tan accessories.

Think I'm going to spend my evening eating leftover pizza and writing some more of my dissertation. I've got a law textbook beside my laptop to be read for next week too, feeling ever so slightly out of my depth but I'm sure I'll be fine once I've taken a minute to take everything in. I had a late-night blog brainwave last night too, so I 'might' work on a new feature that I 'might' start posting soon. Hope you're all well, catch you on Twitter!

  46. LOVE this outfit, the jumper looks so good with the girly dress!
    I know exactly how you feel, I had to go into uni for classes today too and it felt like such a waste of time. I think I would actually have rather been at home writing my dissertation - and that's saying something haha!

  66. I love the dress and jumper, it looks like a warm and cosy but beautiful outfit all at once.

    If you need a hand with any of the legal stuff, shout. That said, I'm envious that your law text was only £18, mine have been hideously expensive!

  70. That jumper is to die for! Did you get it from Boohoo recently? I've searched the site but couldn't seem to find it, it's beautiful! This whole outfit is ridiculously pretty! :-). Hope you get your head round all of the law stuff and can't wait to see the new feature if it goes ahead :-)
