Not everything has to be an outfit outfit – sometimes a dress and shoes is pretty much it. I can take or leave accessorising. Topshop do a similar, midi length version of this dress which I tried on last week, then bottled it and went for the New Look £15 version after seeing it in grey on Patricia’s blog. I know she’s tall too, so had confidence that this one wouldn’t fall on the indecent side of short (read – bootay on show) on me.
First days at big girl skewl this week! 2 months off is the longest I’ve had since I was 4, so it’s taking some getting used to actually having to be somewhere most days. So far I’m really enjoying myself at college though! I’ve made quite a few new friends since just Wednesday and I actually really like the big campus and having a bajillion people around. Also, I’ve been on so many trips to this college over the last few years that I’ve almost gotten used to it being a one day thing, and now keep forgetting that I actually have to come in tomorrow haha. Whilst I didn’t hate school at all and I miss my old teachers loads, I’m so glad that I’m not in the same place for sixth form. I liked it, but not that much! 7 years would be way too long in the same environment. I don’t know how the people who stay on at the same school cope. Change is good, people! Especially at this point: you change so much from age 11 to 16 that I can’t imagine what it’s like staying an extra couple of years. Even though it does feel kinda weird that there’s this whole settling in process, and then we’ll be gone by June 2016. I can imagine that by the time I leave, today will feel like only yesterday.
I’ve definitely adopted a ‘starting as I mean to go on’ kinda mantra, and hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up! 5:30am morning workouts (yes really!) started on day 1 – I posted about why I am a weirdo that does this back here. Blogging through GCSEs was hard enough and I’m well aware that A-levels are something else completely. I reckon that making the most of those free sessions and blogging when I can is a good way to make the most of my time! Plus, I only get home around 5 now (wahhhh) so evenings and study day shall be very precious time! Any other bloggers been in this position and have any tips?
Main YAY for college is wearing my own clothes too, duhhh. So exciting after 12 years of uniform! Lack of blazer pockets is a bit of an adjustment (my life fit in those pockets) but I’ll take the freedom over the ease any day. Maybe a ‘casual college outfits’ post or two might come by way of this blog. 🙂
