A change in season always feels like I need to change up my wardrobe. However, being a student I can’t exactly afford new clothes every single time the sun decides to show itself. Plus – despite the fact it’s the beginning of May already – the sun is noticeably absent, meaning half the clothes I want to start wearing aren’t really appropriate.
For a long time now I’ve being trying to perfect the art of layering one jumper over the other, but now with the rise of the adorable flute sleeves/jumper combination, I decided that I should probably just go for it and hope for the best.
I wish that I could say that I came up with this outfit idea after looking in my wardrobe and getting a wave of inspiration because I’m just so #stylish, but it actually came about because I was freezing in my poorly-heated student house and just decided to whack one jumper on over another.
A couple of weeks ago I took part in two weeks’ work experience at a publishing company near my university. I had so much fun learning what each department does and although two weeks was better than one week would have been – it caused a lot of problems vis-a-vis my outfit planning. How on earth was I supposed to look sick af when I only had 3 work experience outfits in my wardrobe? Disaster – but luckily I managed it.
So for anyone with the same problem – here’s how to style yourself for a whole week without reverting back to a waitress-inspired, black on black style.
feDespite the fact that I hate how listicles are everywhere nowadays, I didn’t really know how else to write this post. I didn’t want to do a long rambly one where people would lose interest halfway through – plus I have a tendency to get preachy – so I shut myself up by condensing it into 16 bullet points.
I have always been one to avoid cardigans – for some reason they just don’t look right on me. However when I saw this one in Primark for only £12 I decided that maybe with some practice I’d be able to make it work.
I’ve started my third year of university again recently and with that came my student loan. And then went my student loan (well, £8 of it anyway) on this lovely corduroy A-Line skirt from Primark.
It’s a well-known saying that women take forever in the bathroom and stand in front of a full rack of clothes exclaiming ‘I’ve got nothing to wear!’ And although I feel that this opinion is outdated, irrelevant, exaggerated, and, well, sexist – I can’t ignore that, for the girls who do live up to this stereotype, there is a perfectly good reason for it. And it actually comes from the way they have been brought up to view themselves.
