Hello all, I’ve had a bit of a break from the old blogging this week which was by no means intentional. I was struck down with a sickness bug right on the day of my first exam this week, which then nicely transitioned into flu like symptoms for the rest of the week. I’ll tell you now, it’s not the most glamourous situation to be sat at home surrounded by revision notes, a sick bucket, tissues and lemsip, but unfortunately that was my life this week. I’ll stop painting a picture now as the flashbacks are still making me nauseous! Anyway, now that I’ve finished this course I’ll hopefully have more time to focus on blogging whilst I’m job hunting and getting some experience – I’m still struggling to accept that I’m back in the real world after almost 4 years of student life!
I’ve been dying to dig my white jeans out from the back of my wardrobe since I said a teary goodbye to them at the end of summer, (I’m not melodramatic, I promise) and I really didn’t expect to wear them until at least May. But… *drum roll please* they are back out and here to stay! Was that not the most exciting announcement you’ve ever heard? Definitely worthy of a drum roll in my opinion. Recently I’ve let my hair down, thrown caution to the wind if you will, and decided that I’m not going to wait until something is ‘seasonally appropriate’ to wear it (within reason obviously – I’m not going to start whipping my sandals and shorts out just yet). I would like to point out that this is not the most adventurous thing I have ever done in my life, I am slightly more interesting believe it or not.
So – the breakdown of the outfit. The white jeans are the Topshop Joni style, which I have had for a couple of years now and they’re still going strong. The zip once completely broke and then managed to fix itself, so you could say these are miracle jeans. On top we have this AMAZINGLY soft jumper from Zara (honestly, just go into store and feel it), which has these hugely impractical but incredible statement sleeves which is a trend I’ve been wanting to try for a while now. I really like the simplicity of the colour palette of this outfit, and a solid black and white is a look I don’t really do that often. Finally, pulling together the alternate colour block are my simple black chelsea boots from Jones Bookmaker.
Right, I’m off to appreciate my newly returned health.
