First outfit post of 2015! Snapped a few quick pictures before picking up some bits and pieces in town with mama. Multi storey car parks actually make half decent locations! Interesting light too. Since receiving this check shirt for Christmas I’ve worn it more than I should probably admit. Shock horror, black and white goes with everything. I like that it’s a flannel-y material rather than sheer(ish) like most shirts. Keeps selling out at H&M anyway so must be a good one. Mine’s a size 12 and I’d usually wear an 8 or 10, but when shirts aren’t really tailored I think they’re better that little bit oversized, rather than pretending to be fitted and not quite making it!
shirt and dungarees: H&M | belt (and lipstick): Primark | boots: Forever21 | necklace and cape: Topshop
My lipstick is from Primark would you believe! As far as I can remember it cost £1.50, and has near enough unbeatable staying power. After a while it feels kinda chalky on the lips and isn’t exactly moisturising, but the colour is fab. Red lipstick for daytime – or any bold lipstick for daytime, for that matter – is a look I’m a fan of. I’m one of those girls who wears bright lipstick for college, because why not! Adds a bit of colour when you need it. If I’ve a fairly simple or neutral outfit on I almost feel naked without a *blogger cliche warning* pop of colour somewhere.
You can’t see it brilliantly here but I actually wore my black cape too, and my mum and I looked quite the double act seeing as she wore hers too! We deliberated beforehand whether the Batman and Robin resemblance was too strong but went out as a fringe cape-clad pair anyway. It’s funny how whenever we go out, we always seem to accidentally co-ordinate or match in some way, totally unplanned! Never ever clash.
Those dungarees again, I know! Sometimes normal jeans just look boring with baggy tops, but these just seem to add some shape or whatever that makes them look that little bit better. Maybe a slight hillbilly vibe going on with a check shirt, dungarees and pointy western boots but there are worse vibes I think.
Back to college tomorrow, wahh! I’m excited to see everyone again and I do actually enjoy it, but I seriously need another week off. Mock exams are in the second week back and we’ve had plenty lectures on their importance for predicted grades for uni and all that. I’ve done a reasonable amount of revision but still, it feels like I sat my GCSEs not that long ago and here I am sitting an AS physics paper. After my GCSE results I’ve been set high targets for A-levels and I want to do well for myself anyway, so that’s gonna mean lots of hard work from now on. Plus keeping on top of my blog, dancing 3 times per week and having a social life, I’ve lots on my plate over the next few months! It’s scary to think that the next time I’ll be able to properly relax without revision or work to do will be the summer holidays. 😮 Anybody else in the same busy boat?
