Back to School

Top & Skirt - ASOS Curve, Cardigan - Primark, Bag - Nica,
Tights - Marks & Spencer, Shoes - Topshop
It's not 'back to school' for me exactly, but as I vaguely mentioned in my last blog post I am returning to uni! You may already know that I graduated with a degree in Fashion Design last year, so by 'returning to uni', I do actually mean a whole new adventure! By the end of this week I will be all packed up and I'll be moving to a new city, starting at a new university, and this time for a postgrad course. I am very excited and I'm looking forward to a fresh start after a bit of a tough year, but I'm also understandably nervous. I haven't had much time to get my head around it as I applied for uni SO last minute - only four weeks ago to be exact. We were a little unsure I would even find somewhere for me to live, but thankfully we did! The funding was also something we had to think about because unless you do a teaching or medical postgrad, you don't get any (or just very limited) help from the government, unlike an undergraduate degree where you're given the money and just rack up the debt instead. (I'll likely be paying that off until my dying day unless there's some miracle) But luckily it has all worked out! Hopefully the course and the move will go well, and that I will enjoy my brief return to uni life, and I will try to keep you all updated along the way, if possible.

This week I met up with the lovely Isha for a bit of a 'farewell meal' (I've had a lot of those recently), so you can thank her for these pictures! She asked me to take some pictures for her, so I thought I might as well ask her to return the favour too seeing as it's not often I have another blogger around to take photo's for me! I've been searching high and low for new 'back to school/uni'/basically autumn clothes, but I'm having no such luck. (like I mentioned in the last blog post too) The only thing I found remotely nice was this tartan top from ASOS Curve! I'm glad I bought it, but one t-shirt hardly spruces up my wardrobe. Plus size fashion, you need to up your game sometime soon please! The rest of my outfit is all incredible old, but favourite items, that you've seen me wear before. I felt a little bit Christmassy wearing tartan and velvet, but it's a bit early for that!

This might be the last time you hear from me for a while, (minus my book club posts) as like I said I start my new adventure at the end of the week so I won't have time or anyone around to take pictures for me. I will of course try my best if opportunities arise for blog pictures, but I can't promise anything. I'm also going to try and take photo's before I leave inbetween packing, but I'll have to see how that goes. Anyway, I apologise in advance for the lack of blogging over the coming months, and this is most definitely NOT the end of my blog! Until next time,


  1. Those shoes are too cute! Also, good luck with your studies (I'm also a postgraduate student). :) p.s. yay, I was your 100th Google Friend Connect follower! ;)

    1. Yay, thank you for being my 100th GFC follower!! Good luck with your postgrad studies too! :D xx

  2. Good luck with your studies. It will be interesting to follow you onwards. Your outfit is so beautiful and perfect for autumn. xx

  3. A very intriguing approach. The level of personal attachment to the text is so great that I can't tell whether a clothing line is being advertised or a personal experience is being narrated. Superbly written
