OOTD - No, not a denim pinafore?!

I've been on the lookout for a pinafore dress for a while now and the few I found didn't catch my eye and then sitting in Topshop was this beauty. Not only is it a pinafore but it's a bloody denim one, what more could a girl as for?! I did actually spot this on one of FashionRocksMySocks YouTube videos, you should all check her out by the way, but didn't expect it to be in the local Topshop. I adore it and it may be one of my favourite pieces I own!

As its like -123406 degrees (or it feels like it) out there I've been dressed up in millions of layers, slightly resembling the abominable snowman. But Monday has come around and I'm sick of the snow worrying about falling over on the bloody ice and i just wanted to dress normally again! So I paired it with two pairs of tights, of course, a pair of laced ankle socks from Topshop, a white shirt and my recently brought Topshop jumper and was surprisingly toasty warm. Thankgod for my coat and Primarks super cost tights!

Snow days!

When England has snow forecasted :Asda's shelves are bare, students hoping for days off snowball fights, snowmen and sledging. Basically the country goes into major panic!

Yesterday snow was the topic of conversation and how we were going to "take initiative" and take a day off "for our own safety!" This morning I was woken up at 7 to my sister telling me it had snowed and it was still going and then was out by quarter to 8 and feeling like I was dunked under water in the whole hour I was out there! Although with my layers on I was as snug as a bug out there: thermal tights, super cosy, tights, legging, slipper socks, vest top, shirt, hoodie, shirt, snood and coat. The rest of the day called for being snuggled up on my sofa with my dog looking at blogs and YouTube videos, a pretty good day I think!

OOTD - Lazy Mondays

Shirt - oldie

I look incredibly awkward in this photo, actually this was probably the least awkward out of the bunch and I thought I was finally getting used to taking pictures of myself. Ah well. 

Like most Mondays I just popped round to my Nan and Granddads and today I was feeling comfy clothing, I actually had aimed to find something warm seeing as it's 3 degrees and we had the slightest bit of snow over night. It somewhat failed seeing as I only threw my leather jacket on over the top! I love the print on this shirt and I forgot I had it until I sorted through my draws last week, I've had it for ages and I think I've worn a handful of times. It's the perfect length too, not too long but long enough to wear with leggings and feel comfortable or tucked into a jeans without that annoying bulge of material. 

I think a bowler hat is that perfect accessory that easily dresses up a simple casual outfit and just gives it that touch of edge and I admit I've only taken this hat off for college and even then I feel a little lost without it, its definitely been one of my favourite gifts from Christmas and 2012 and we'll be a staple piece in my wardrobe for a looong time to come! What is your favourite staple accessory?!

OOTD - Satchels, Unicorns and New terms.

Snood - International
Leather Jacker - Miss Selfridge
Skirt - Topshop
Satchel - Ebay 
This week I went back to college and already I feel like I've been back for yonks and questioning life, although today we have been working on something I'm pretty interested in and I cant wait to tare apart the Dangerous Dog Act.

The skirt I recently brought with my Christmas money and where it's from the petite range in Topshop I think it fits better then the cheap Primark which has now been passed onto the sister. I'm also pretty sure this is the first time I've worn outdoor for a picture but I'm planning on getting it in there a lot more often and get more creative with my photos; well when it starts getting lighter. Oh and there it is my satchel, well a side view, which I am completely in love with it's the perfect size, not to small and not to big and it's this gorgeous pillar-box red colour. I just love it!

I don't even know if anyone noticed but my last few posts have been a bit different with the pictures under the text, it wasn't intentional but because I did a few on my Ipad and I'm not completely used to it. So yeah I just wanted to apologise for it if it bothered anybody.

Hope everyone had a good week back at college/school/work.

00TD - The first of the year!

Bowler - H&M
Chain - H&M
Jumper - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop

Today I was a walking advertisement for both H&M and Topshop and just realised I've been wearing silver and gold together, check me out breaking the rules! I think today was the first day I've actually left my house since new years eve apart from Wednesday when I went shopping for a few hours, money burns a whole in my pocket what can I say.  The jumper, chain and the socks, you cant see, are all Christmas money brought, its a pretty simple outfit but I think adding the chain, lipstick, hat and leather jacket for the outside made the outfit a little less boring and my leather vans may have become my favourite piece of footwear.

So I hope everyone has had a good start into the new year, I'm not one to make resolutions because I forget and never stick to them! So maybe I'll just set some "goals" that I just hope to achieve this year.

- finish my current course and get the onto the one I really want!
- I hope to blog more regularly and have a variety of posts
- put more effort into my outfits everyday; even if it's just lipstick.
- To be more fashion-y, this is the industry I want to be In and I know little!
- To do more drawing, I enjoyed it once!

I won't say get healthy or tone up because I have no motivation for that exercise is not my friend!
