BASIC







Jeans, jumper & belt: Primark - Boots: Topshop - Jacket: Boohoo - Bag: Mango

When asked what I study (fashion design and textiles for those non-regular readers! Why you no come here more though!?) I am more than often met with the response of "Well that must be fun" or "sounds exciting", and even the odd "how do you study fashion", and it is, fun and exciting, but also extremely demanding. More so than I ever could have anticipated. So, whilst I dream of traipsing into uni dressed like an eager fashion week goer and impressing my fellow fashion bitches, who like you and I, appreciate a well thought out look, I've got to be honest here, it simply doesn't work out that way. Lazy dressing has become somewhat of a thing for me since commencing my final year, namely because I lack three of the key elements required for such circumstances; time, energy and commitment. So accept my apologies in advance fam, I'll be basic bitch'n it for the foreseeable future. 

But hey, it wasn't a total loss. I made an effort with the bandana . . . it took a rough 30/40 seconds to tie! Things can only get better s'pose.

INCOGNITO

boots, dress & top: topshop - bag: vintage

Megan and I took a few quick snaps of this look on Friday evening, just before heading off to St Anne's cathedral for the Ulster University graduate fashion show. I took the safe option and dressed in all black and ended up with this somewhat robber-esque look.

 The show itself was just amazing (as expected), the location, designs and atmosphere left me feeling pretty inspired (and a little scared), for next year, when it'll be my graduate collection strutting down that catwalk.

ANDROGYNOUS


coat: H&M (last year) - trousers: asos - shoes: Nike @office - sweater & bag: primark

Dark winter mornings have been rolling in good and fast, and although it's not something that I'm entirely happy about, I have been glad of the coat worthy weather that came with. 

I was becoming bored with the coats I already had in rotation and craved something full length and androgynous, when I recalled this H&M beauty that I clocked eyes on when it was released last year. I added it to my shopping cart and mmm'd and ahhh'd over it for the following weeks. Subsequently missing out and kicking myself for my lack of spontaneity. So I did what I often do in this situation . . .  trolled eBay, hoping it would make an appearance in my size, which it eventually did. And this time (without hesitation) I completed the purchase. 

It's super cosy and swooshes when I walk . . . batman appeal is an obvious bonus.

MULE'N

Dress: topshop boutique - mules & coat: primark - socks: topshop

I know . . . I know! I'm the worst! To be honest I don't know how it happened. A day, a week then two and now this. It was all so quick, I didn't have time to think about what I was doing to you . . . to us!

Forgive me . . . please!? I promise never to leave you like that again. I'll blog more . . . I swear!.

Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic. But sincere.

I'm going into my 5th week at uni (second year fashion design and textiles for those of you wondering) and my feet have barely touched the ground! My life has become a constant stream of travelling to and from uni, lectures, tutorials, seminars, work and finding time for my little boy, my partner, our dogs and a very clingy cat. I've been busy, to say the least. But I'm slowly getting into some sort of routine and am determined to post regularly again.

Wish me luck! Post soon (at least I hope!)

PLEAT'N AROUND

Skirt: red herring @ debenhams - shirt: topshop - cap: asos - backpack: primark - trianers: nike @ office

I've found myself drawn to anything pleated lately. 

Flowy pleated skirts (midi, maxi or bum skimming minis) with oversized knits will be my A/W uniform. However, I'm a little unsure how I'll achieve this without seeming repetitive . . . that said, a band tee and a biker jacket might work equally well.

What will you be wearing this season?

THE WRAP SKIRT

skirt, sweater & necklace: topshop - boots: zara - bag: vintage - rings: hm

I've developed a new found love for the simplicity of wrap skirts. Pop on, pop off . . .  too easy. The architectural design of this topshop boutique one set it apart from last years galore of wrap skirts, and made me love it enough to purchase. An unforeseen issue arose whilst wearing it though, that little cut out section has a tendency to travel, making flashing a little thigh, (potentially) flashing a little somethin else . . . the moral to the story being; wrap skirts with cut outs are fun, but risky business. Purchase with caution.

Also, the weather's being an unpredictable moody bitch again, so it was back to the knitwear for me.
