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

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.

What’s in my bag?

We all have different bags for different occasions. I take different things with me depending on where I’m going so I have a casual bag, a going-out bag, and a uni bag.

I don’t always change the bag I use, just the things I put in it, but I do mainly use the bags shown in the pictures for what the occasion is.

Casual Bag

cas

So, first of all there’s my casual bag which is what I use for things like going to town or going to the shops etc. I use one of my favourite bags (Dr Martens bag) for this because it’s the perfect size as it’s not too big or too small.

For shopping trips when I know I’m going to buy something, I like to take my Lush ‘Fighting animal testing’ bag as plastic bags cost 5p now and it helps the environment to use my own bag.

If I were to empty my bag as soon as I got in from shopping in town then it would probably be filled with my:

  • Keys
  • Phone
  • Chewing gum
  • Earphones
  • Bus tickets
  • Purse

Pretty stereotypical tbh, my favourite thing in that bag is of course the purse (side note: I once cried when I thought I lost it. Not because of the money, cards and ID inside it but because of the actual purse).

Going-out bag

going-out

I use this bag, obviously, for going out (meaning clubs, house parties etc) as it’s small and minimises what I take with me.

Taking the minimal is very important for someone as clumsy as me as I do stupid things like give NARS lippy away in the girls loo because I become overly nice to people I don’t know. Or drop my phone when waiting for a drink and the only way of fixing it is if I bite it.

So basically I take out my:

  • Keys
  • Phone
  • small purse (I put my ID, money and student card in it)
  • Lipstick

My boyfriend enjoys looking after my phone on nights out because he doesn’t trust me to not break it, and I’ve learnt my lesson and take a cheap lipstick out with me now.

Uni Bag

uni

My uni bag is my biggest bag as I have to fit bigger stuff in it. I like to carry the necessities with me as I’ll never know what I need.

These include my:

  • Phone
  • Purse
  • Keys
  • Laptop
  • Notebook
  • Pens
  • Tampons
  • Drink

Loads of people on my course don’t really take their laptop but I enjoy doing my work on mine so it’s more accessible. It also means I can internet shop without being monitored by the lecturers.

 

So they’re the three main bags I use. Sometimes if I’m going home for the weekend I’ll take my Vans rucksack so that I can fit clothes and makeup in it. I also have a suede, tassle bag which is cute for casual occasions.

So there we have it, you now know what’s in my bag.
