Well, I’m not sure what to say right now, which is hardly surprising seeing as I haven’t blogged in over a year but I’m glad to be back to it. Honest! I’ve missed being able to write on this platform, although reasons as to why I took such a long hiatus are slightly unclear even to myself, I’ve got to say, it was needed. I’ve just started my second year at university so I’ve been taking advantage of the large campus space (time between my lectures) to shoot outfit posts for y’all, so, yes the buildings you see coming up in my posts from time to time are part of my university but hey, girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
I think my favourite aspect of this outfit overall is how much colour is interwoven into the structuring of it, from previous posts you know I’ve always more or less been about the monochrome and minimalism but recently I’ve been having a strangely sensual love affair with colour – my favourite colour at the moment is pink so you know this is true! The backpack in the post is the best thing I’ve bought in months. Months! And it was on sale too! (£10 bargain yo)
I believe that one of the things that made this ensemble so fun to shoot (asides from having my friend Charlotte be my photographer hehe) was how comfortable it was. I’ve never really been an advocate for the winter time, the thought of my days getting shorter and colder makes me want to get into bed and pull the duvet over my head but, but, but I’m really digging my wardrobe this year so that may just change. This knit (which was the most perfect camel colour) is the warmest and most comfortable piece of knitwear I’ve ever owned, it’s not scratchy as knitwear can sometimes be and its just the right level of thickness to keep you warm but not too warm especially when the weathers as partial as it is in London. The denim jacket I could fangirl about due to having been on the look for the perfect one for over a year, so when came across it last month in Bershka, I knew it was my ride or die. Love at first sight sort of moment.
All in all, I love this outfit with its little splashes of compact colour – especially the pink backpack (I had to mention it again, I just had too) oh and the boots – which have always been a staple piece of my wardrobe are slightly higher than usual too haha. ALWAYS a bonus!
I’m really going to try to keep the posting as regular as possible so love me again and see ya soon
