Grey cropped varsity style tee, Miss Selfridge; Black leather look leggings, F&F; Black cut-out ankle boots, New Look; Black one-button coat, YesStyle.co.uk; Mulberry Bayswater Shoulder in Midnight Navy; Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 111; Hufflepuff Badge; Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Flicking through my wardrobe rail at the weekend, my sister and I were pondering the moment ‘varsity’ became a thing in our stocks. I typically profess my personal style to be pretty feminine, classic and a little eclectic with tougher accents, but never has varsity or anything sports inspired crept into my look. Until now.

This little grey cropped tee was salvaged from a Christmas sample sale and is the perfect little number for an off-duty look. You can’t see the sleeves - because I’d lose my arms to frostbite… - but they each feature double blue stripes, and the motif at the front is just enough detail for me. Paired quite simply with my F&F leather look leggings, I’m beginning to assume this recent update in style is from the current K-pop idol trend for all things varsity, quirkily sliced together.

Last week was absolutely lovely: a chilled week of seeing best friends and indulging in everything that I love. It’s nice to unwind and see daytime people for once! I also managed to squeeze in a haircut ready for Chinese New Year at the end of the month - good luck and fortune, come at me! I spent my weekend following that ol’ Ikea journey with hundreds of other furniture-inclined people, and building my new Expedit case that is already filled up, and overall, I’m feeling refreshed and pretty darn content. Ready to go when you are, Wednesday...

  10. Love the bright lip! Just what this gloomy weather needs at the moment. As for the badge... I won't lie; I was pretty gutted when I got sorted into Hufflepuff on Pottermore! Even if it is 100% accurate to my personality -_- Speaking of k-pop, some song came on in H&M today by some guy(?!), I think he has white or blonde hair, and I blame you entirely for even recognising it at all!

    1. Thanks Jade! I'm going through SUCH a red lip phase at the moment. Haha me too girl, me too. I was in Hufflepuff for 6 of the 7 accounts I created... and then Slytherin for the last! Sounds like a sneaky bit of G-Dragon to me - jealous!
