back to school pt.4







jumper: h&m
culottes: asos petite*
shoes: primark
socks: asos
bag: zara

We're nearly at the end of my five 'back to school' looks, and this one is a little more ~me~. I picked up this jumper after wanting it forever but not being willing to spend £30 on a glorified sweatshirt, and then I just bought it. 'Cos that's what I usually do. 
I also found these shoes for £14 and nearly started crying, they're fabulous.

back to school pt.3








t-shirt: h&m
jeans: asos*
shirt: (around waist) missguided*
bag: zara

Part three: super casual, and slightly too cool for me. When styling the pieces up I tried to bare in mind that not everyone has the luxury of standing up most of the day and pottering around London whilst at uni, so for those of you who spend most of your time in lectures, here's a comfy one for you.
Not so great for after uni drinks, but perfect for the bus journey home. 
I've never worn mom jeans before, I fancied a pair a few years ago but never bought them. These are cool as they're slim, and basically a normal pair of jeans but a little looser at the ankle, what do you reckon? I quite like them. They're 'real' denim (none of this 98% elastane stuff) too, which is fab.

back to school pt.2






shirt: asos*
cardigan: asos*
t-shirt: h&m
leather trousers: topshop
coat: missguided*
shoes: river island
bag: zara

Bonjour, outfit number two as part of my 'back to school with ASOS' collective. This is definitely more of a uni outfit for me, the kind of thing I throw on to say "I did think about what I put on, but I also value warmth and comfort over style today" a really layered, fairly laid back outfit. Perfect for when I've got a 5 hour lesson spent hunched over a sewing machine.
What do you reckon?

lfw s/s14 street style

Hannah and Danielle


Sarah and Arabella



Two Shoes One Pair, Shope, Hannah

So, as mentioned in my previous LFW post, I went with Oh My Love and we took some fab gals with us (Amy, Hannah, Shope and Danielle) to help street style the cobbles.
These are a few of the outfits that stood out the most to me, as well as the girls wearing OML. Please let me know if you're in this and not credited, as I am dreadful with names. Also please credit back if you use the photos!

wardrobe update: the little black bag






topshop//primark//zara//topshop (old)

If you'd have asked me a year ago, do you prefer a big or small handbag? I'd have gone with something I can fit the kitchen sink in, however, I seem to have had a lightbulb moment and converted to anything that I can't fit anything in.

I thought I'd share a few of my most-grabbed handbags with you. I used to use my Alexander Wang Diego every day, but it's really heavy and totally awkward to do anything with, so I tend to save it for the odd occasion where it'll be appreciated. Nowdays I tend to grab anything small and black, namely this little Primark number. At £6, it's the cheapest of the bunch and something about the pebbled faux leather really rung a Wang bell (hehe), so I'm not feeling too far from home. It also has the whole CelinĂ© trio vibe... although it is only a duo.
I also picked up this Zara beauty recently after spying it on Suzie's Instagram. It's a really cool shape, it's black, and it's croc textured. That's basically what I look for in anything in life (ok, so anything clothing related. Croc boyfriend not on the list.)
I've got a few more too, but they looked ugly in the photos (it took me forever to make these photos vaguely match, so apologies for the horrible pics!), so these are my faves. What's your bag of choice?
