OOTD: Monochrome

I haven't done a proper outfit post in such a long time so I'm a bit rusty on everything so I'm sorry about the bad quality! (it was also incredibly windy which really didn't help...!). Anyway, this dress was a birthday present for my 20th this month. You might recognise it from Topshop but I found the long sleeves were too short and didn't really suit me so I took the risk of cutting them off and I actually think it looks so much better this way! I'm also wearing it with my Topshop boots here but I really need to find some other shoes that suit it better because I'm not 100% sure about them styled together here - does anyone else always have the shoes/tights dilemma?!.

Lately...

VISITING... Liverpool
Me, my mum and my brother went up to Liverpool the other day for a weekend trip. My brother's a huge fan of The Beatles so we of course had to visit some of the famous sites such as Penny Lane, The Cavern Club and had a look around the Beatles museum.

WEARING... my sheepskin jacket

My mum bought me this really nice jacket for Christmas which she actually managed to find in a charity shop! It's been really useful for the colder weather we've been having recently as it's actually suprisingly warm and I'd been looking for something in this style beforehand anyway so I was pretty excited to receive it!







WATCHING.... Luther, Reign, Pretty Little Liars

I've been slowly working my way through some recommended tv shows on netflix and these three are shows that I would definitely recommended having a look at...

New In: cut out shoes and new look bag

I'm now back home for a few weeks over Easter so I'm hopefully going to persuade my family to take some outfit photos for me! 
I am so excited about these shoes! Somehow I've manged to go from pretty much having one pair of shoes for two years, to buying 3 new pairs in the last month or so (I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or not...)! I bought these on depop for the bargain of £8, and as I was desperate for a pair in this style I had to buy them. They're actually originally from F&F at Tesco but they're just as nice as the ones from Topshop etc. and I would never be able to tell the difference. 
Another new purchase was this bag from New Look. My last two bags unfortunately broke recently so I started my hunt for a new (decently priced) one. With the help of a lot of searching for discount codes and vouchers I managed to buy this bag for around £10.

20th Birthday

So it was my 20th Birthday on Sunday...(it really hasn't sunk in yet that I'm no longer a teenager anymore)! I had a really fun weekend with my boyfriend eating out and drinking lots of cocktails and then my brother and my mum drove up to see me on my actual birthday, so overall it was a very busy few days! I've taken just a few pictures below of the weekend and some of the presents I got...

Denim

This has been one of my favourite outfits to wear recently. I'm slowly building up my collection of off the shoulder tops and this one has been perfect for the colder months. I bought it in Primark for just £2! It was such a bargain I just couldn't resist. I also found this Topshop skirt on Depop for around £8. I don't think it's the same version as the new style currently in the shops but there's not much difference really and it was such a good price!

Wish List: Topshop

I had such a lazy weekend this week which involved a lot of browsing online shops for hours on end. So I deciced to put my time wasting to use and created this wish list of some of my favourite items in Topshop at the moment...

New In: Shoes

I've been in desperate need of a new pair of shoes/boots for a while now (I only have one pair of boots that I wear pretty much everyday during the winter!). I got these Topshop boots as an early birthday present a few weeks ago. They're actually incredibly comfy and they're definitely an upgrade on my other boots which have become really worn out after wearing them for about 2 years now! I'm really upset that I've already managed to get a few scratches on these already though, after only a few wears...I'll have to get the shoe polish out when I go back home!







I also wanted to try and find some flat shoes that I could wear more casually. I've become so accustomed to heeled boots that wearing these feels incredibly weird! They're also not the comfiest shoes but I bought them from ebay for just £10 so they're not too bad for the price. I'm yet to wear them out but hopefully I'll make some use out of them soon, especially when it starts to get warmer!

I'm back

Wow, I really can't believe I haven't blogged in 6 months! My main excuse is that in September I started university at Nottingham Trent and I've been focusing a lot on settling in and on my university projects and coursework. However I've really missed blogging a lot and I definitely want to try and get back into it. I don't have my family at uni to bribe into taking outfit photos for me so my posts are going to be a lot of mirror shots/blurry phone photos so bear with me on that!

Firstly, I wanted to post my outfit to a boat ball I went to last night. This amazing dress from Topshop was a christmas present from my Mum. I tried to get a good photo of the back as the lace cut outs are just perfect but the photos really don't do it justice. I also wore these snakeskin heels I found in New Look in the sale for just £12.
