This outfit of the day is perfect for casual occasions and days when it’s cold but you still want to look cool.

I’ve always held back from wearing jeans and I didn’t wear them (or trousers etc) for over two years but bought some last year in the winter period when it was cold. I didn’t like wearing jeans because I’m really self conscious about my legs but I just thought fuck it and to not care what people think about me.

I’m glad I did because I feel more relaxed in them and don’t have to worry about them blowing up and showing my knickers when it’s windy.

This year I really wanted some flares as they’re really in ATM and I also liked the frayed jeans.

For some reason I was lucky and found some on New Look’s website so I ordered them. I must say I was skeptical about them not fitting me as I have big thighs and bum and a small waist.

I tried them on and was so glad they were stretchy because now I have two pairs of jeans! Yey me.

I’m obsessed with striped T shirts, especially long sleeved ones, and this one was in the sale at H&M so it was a must-buy.

As for the converse they go with literally anything and are probably my comfiest shoes. I like the casual look they give to the outfit.

Also I got the bag for Christmas and it has elephants on it so it must go with everything- yes because elephants are the best it means the bag goes with everything.

Finally, if it’s cold (which it is) I like to add my long duster jacket as it makes it look really relaxed and kind of an 80’s style.

My Outfit

  • T shirt- H&M £4
  • Jeans– New Look £24.99
  • Shoes– Converse £50
  • Bag- Next (Christmas present)

Hope you liked my casual outfit, if you’ve got any recommendations on what you think it would look good with, comment them below.

This outfit of the day was only able to happen due to the Zara sale because my oh my it is good.

It’s the middle of winter yet I’m still willing to wear a midi skirt purely because it was such a gem of a buy. The t shirt was also amazingly cheap and I love the fact that it can be either casual or dressy, and will go with anything.

This outfit literally consisted of two things and can be personalised with what makes you comfortable. I like to wear it with my 1461’s, some cute socks and my Dr Marten bag.

My outfit:

  • T shirt– Zara £3.99 (originally £15.99)
  • Skirt– Zara £9.99 (originally £25.99)
  • Socks- Primark £2 for two
  • Shoes– 1461 Dr Martens £100
  • Bag– Dr Martens £105

Currently this is one of my favourite outfits and I like to wear it for uni and going to town etc. If it’s a bit chilly I put my leather jacket on and I always bling it up with a little bit of jewellery.

My shoe collection

1

My shoes are like my babies. I don’t have many as I tend to wear the same shoes a lot and I definitely have autumn / winter and spring / summer shoes.

The basis of my shoe collection is made up of docs as they last so long and go with literally anything. I don’t own heels because I can’t walk in them for the life of me and also I don’t have anything to wear them for.

I’ll be starting off my shoe collection with:

Dr Martens 1461

I’m on my second pair of these and they are what I currently wear the most. I wear them with practically anything and I like to add some cool socks that go past my ankle just to jazz the look up a bit.

Dr Martens 1460

I wore these to Leeds fest this year and the mud was that bad that even after scraping, soaking AND being put in the washing machine they are still dirty. I love these docs just as much as my 1461’s and I think they look edgy with a midi skirt or dress.

Dr Martens 2976

These are in my autumn / winter collection as they only really go with tights and jeans which is something I don’t wear a lot in summer. I really like them and they’re one of my smarter pair of shoes.

Dr Martens Polley

These are the cutest pair of shoes I own and again, I like to add some pretty socks with them. However, they are also the most painful pair of shoes I own because for some reason they’re so hard to break in. I like to wear them when I go on a night out.

Chuck Taylor All Star Classic

I got these this year for my holiday in Florida because I had to do a lot of walking. I also really wanted them for a while before getting them but never had the money, but they were on sale so I could get them.

Vans Old Skool

I also wanted these for a long time before I got them and I like to wear them when I’m doing something casual because they’re comfy and go with a lot of outfits.

Asos Flatforms

I can’t find a link for these as I got them around 2 years ago but these are my dressy shoes that I wear with summery dresses and on special occasions. I like these as they’re comfy and edgy however they’re more summary as they really don’t go with tights.

Classic Birkenstock

These are so perfect for summer and lazy days when you just want to pop to the shop for some milk or whatever. They took a long time to break in but I just love the casual look they give and they go with everything.

Although a lot of my shoes are expensive, I’ve got a few of them either in a sale on for Christmas. They last really long too so I never have to buy shoes as they are suitable for any weather.

My most recent purchases

My second year of uni has just started so I thought I’d treat myself to a few things that contribute to my wardrobe, makeup bag, and vinyl collection.

We all have little things that make us happy and for me I usually get things that I either need or will use a lot.

The following few things are what I consider to fall into what I need and will get a lot of use out of whilst still being what I want, so here are my most recent purchases.

screen-shot-2016-10-09-at-17-13-56

1. Ecote Teddy Cosy Reversible Khaki Hooded Jacket £69 (you can get 10% student discount)

I got this jacket from Urban Outfitters which is one of my favourite shops ever! I decided I needed it because one, it will keep me warm as I have no coats or jackets that are thick and cosy, and two, because it has a hood and I also do not own a hooded coat or jacket. I really like how thick it is and it’s a lot more practical than any other piece of outdoor clothing I own. This jacket is perfect for chilly autumn/winter nights and I can especially imagine being snuggled up in it on bonfire night whilst watching the fireworks. It also comes in different colours and it’s reversible!

2. Top with lacing £12.99

This was a great buy from H & M. I really like tops with lacing trend and I especially went for the natural white colour as I don’t own many non-black tops (or clothing at all for that matter). This goes great with jeans and I like to add a fedora and some Docs, if it’s a bit nippy even a suede waistcoat or leather jacket.

3. Pink crushed velvet skater dress £28 (you can get 10% student discount)

I love this dress from Nobody’s Child. I really needed something new to wear on nights out and when I was having a browse I saw this and immediately had to get it. I like it because it’s nice and girly but I also think that it can come off as grungy as I usually wear it with fishnets and Docs.

4. Lush seducer eye jewels £10

These aren’t sold online so you have to go in the store to purchase them however that’s part of the fun with Lush! I tried more or less all of them out and I’ll deffo be going back for more but I started off with an orangey-red colour. They’re all shimmery might I add AND they’re 30% pigment! I like to use my fingers to put it all over my eyelids and underneath then finish off with winged eyeliner and mascara (and glitter if I’m going out).

5. Oasis- (What’s the story) Morning glory? vinyl £20

I got this from Sainsbury’s purely because that’s our local supermarket (bit expensive for students, I know!) and they have a pretty sick vinyl selection. I couldn’t decide what to get because I also wanted one of the Nirvana or The Smiths vinyls they did too but I’ve already got at least one record by both artists and not one from Oasis so my choice was made really.

If you like any of the above then I’ve added the links (of what I could) for you to have a browse. Hopefully I’ve given you some inspo on what you might need adding to your wardrobe, makeup bag or vinyl collection, and seen as Christmas isn’t that far away, maybe even your list?
