WEARING A WINTER COAT IN MAY// MAY FAVOURITES

COAT zara// SHIRT motel// TROUSERS zara// TRAINERS adidas// BAG river island// NECKLACE whistles// EARRINGS primark

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the terrible photo quality. My memory card has decided not to work, so I have replaced it with my dads digital camera's memory card that must date back to at least 2001.

I have had a few staple items added to the ol' wardrobe recently that I have been in desperate need to blog. Like these Zara pin striped trousers. Ah, too much love for these. 

I was also very kindly sent a gift card from River Island to spend in store. I picked this leather rucksack to see me through my Amsterdam travels. I thought it would be perfectly practical for my daily bike rides to work and back! (Eeeeeek, cannot wait!)

May Favourites:

1."Montage of Heck"- Kurt Cobain Documentary
2. HONNE- Coastal Love EP
4. Marmite

MY FRIENDS ARE TELLING ME NO, BUT MY FEET ARE TELLING ME YES.


What have I done?! Two 'marmite' trends in one!

I know. Very brave move on my part, but to my defence:

1. Socks and sandals are my feets best friend at the moment. The amount of trauma I have put the poor little guys through recently due to inappropriate footwear; they deserved a holiday.
2. The double denim trend? I'm not going to even defend this. I have stood by the double denim trend since Britney and Posh Beck's rocked it in the 90's. I'm going to revel all up in the resurrection of double denim until I hear Posh and Britney say "bitch stole ma look". 

I digress.

I'm back in the switch' for a few days, I've finished my last bit of uni work as well as second year and I'm about to move to Amsterdam for 5 months.

Shit. is. happening. quick.

I am beyond ridiculously excited to be moving to a different country, let alone a city as beautiful as Amsterdam! Expect new scenes for this little space. I'm going to be taking you along for the ride.

STUDENT WISH LIST WITH RIVER ISLAND

RI


Being a typical poor and lazy student myself, I know how hard it can be waking up in the morning let alone trying to think about what you're gunna wear for the rest of the week. When funds are low, (and sometimes morale depending on how long you've been slaving away in the library, a place at which you now call 'home') it's easy to rock the slob look all day er'y day to lectures. With this in mind, River Island recently set me the challenge to pull together 10 of my favourite picks which are great for student life. I'm mixing the smart with the casual by incorporating tailored styles with the comfiest looking shoes known to man. 

Cause' who doesn't want to rock fur lined sliders to their 9 o'clock lecture?




River Island are hooking up with UNiDAYS on Tuesday 21st- Thursday 23rd April offering 20% off (full priced products) in all stores (UK & ROI) and online.

BASIC B**CH


Although this is very much an 'all my clothes are currently in the wash for when I head back to uni tomorrow' outfit, a grey jumper and smart fitting trousers will always be my classic go to for when I'm feeling uninspired in the clothing department . 

Throw on a pair of Stan Smiths and my inner basic bitch will rejoice!

FLARE


JUMPER zara// SHIRT motel// JEANS h&m// MULES zara// SUNGLASSES vintage

I'll put my hands up and be the first one to admit that the new 70's trend just isn't for me. The different kinds of paisley patterns and brown suedes flying around the shops make me want to run to h&m basics section and never look back. However, there is one fine exception to the 70's trend and that is: 

The Flared Jean.

Flared jeans have to be the most flattering style for all. Styled with some heels, they make your legs go on for dayyyyyys. I am forever finding ways of adding a few extra inches to my short legs, so these jeans are a winner.

PINK NEW ADDITIONS


SUNSHINE.

Thank you for officially arriving in the UK. You have been dearly missed. Not only because my skin is in some serious need for some vitamin D lovin' but also because I have an excuse to add to my sunglasses collection.

I recently purchased these pink beauties after my favourite tortoise shell cat eye sunglasses broke. Although I still can't let these go (I fixed the hinge using a bobby pin which I do not recommend as it tends to poke me in the eye from time to time) I added to my collection by daring to go pink. 

I never thought I would say this but, I'm feeling this Barbie look.
