All items from Topshop.


There's truly nothing more distracting and grade lowering than having the internet at your fingertips during french lectures, and as much as I rely on my phone (although I do prefer my red mock croc filofax to organise life the traditional way), I have really had to cut down on how much I decide to enter the virtual wonders of Topshop whilst my teacher drills french politics into my head. But it's not all at a loss, these items would be perfect for my week ahead, cocktails with the girlfriends, dinner on the patio and walking along the city streets at night in the break of spring. These items boast a plethorum of gentle tones, light mesh fabrics and silk mixed with a heavy knit (my most loved combination.) My first item from here to go from wishlist to checkout will be the mesh maxi skirt, which I plan to wear with a mens vintage t-shirt, silver costume jewllery and if the weather permitts it, bare legs and gladiator sandals. Hope your having the best possible start to your week!

The pace has slowed down somewhat since my previously frantic updates and I've found the most calming of remedies is to venture through the woods with my camera and soothing music blasting into my ears. I know this is a lacking fashion/outfit post but I just had to share my journey through the freak weather that's been sweeping through town. We are currently situated under a cocktail of sea mist and think fog, making it near impossible to navigate the simplest of journeys. As well as being slightly nerving and making me feel like I'm starring in 'Twilight' every time I venture through the woods, I'm enjoying the sense of adventure it brings immensely. Although, if you can't take long walks through the woods and drive along endless stretches of fog to release your anxiety's, let this take you away from hectic schedules and blackberry calenders for just 5 minutes .
ps. better/more outfit posts to come when my god damn SLR charger decides to emerge from its' hiding place.

Trilby: Vintage, Leggings: Topshop, Necklace: Silverado, Costume Rings: Vintage, Scalf/Shawl: H&M

Apologies first for the lack of outfit posts, the half asleep expressions on my face in these pictures (I'm not giving you all evils, honest) and my ridiculously messy kitchen. Over the past week or so, I've been on a constant hunt to discover more hours in a day, after finding that 24 just simply isn't enough. With exams looming and life kicking into full action something had to give, and as you might be able to tell, sleep, cleaning kitchens and scheduling a hair cut got the boot. Dressing to impress is also low down on the list, and slouchy grey crop tops, leather leggings and large mens trilby's to cover very dodgy hair has become a uniform. Of course I have to put a little effort in somewhere, so 4inch studded stilettos come grocery shopping with me (more pictures of the shoes later, they deserve a post of their own) Everytime I look down at my well dressed feet, I feel reassured that I havn't lost the will to dress.
