I’ve got to say that I’ve never really been a fan of midi skirts on myself. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love them on other people but I just didn’t feel ‘me’ whenever I tried one on. I’ve always been a mini skirt kinda gal and I doubt this will change any time soon. However, my opinions on midi skirts recently changed when I met this leopard print number.
If you have been keeping up with the trends for AW18 at all, or if simply you have found yourself in any clothes shop recently, you may have noticed that cord is everywhere. Cord trousers, skirts, blazers, even shoes – you can’t get away from it and if you’re anything like me you won’t want to.
There’s no doubt about it – these trousers are manrepelling. In fact, to quote my boyfriend, they’re “horrible”. I’ll admit, a few months ago wearing cords would have been completely out of the question – but here I am, sporting a pink pair nonetheless. When you hear the word ‘cords’ the chances are your mind automatically goes to your Grandad – at least mine tends to. It’s typically the clothing of choice for ‘older’ generation, but thanks to the 70s trend cords are pretty much everywhere at the moment. Here I am, jumping on the bandwagon!
Music has played a huge role in my life for as long as I can remember. From reciting every nursery rhyme I knew to belting Travis’s ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me?’ relentlessly around the pool on holiday when I was five, I was pretty much hooked (I still cringe when I think that I was probably THAT annoying kid everyone wants to shut up).
September has come around again (how???) and that means thousands of 18 year olds are travelling to unfamiliar cities across the country to start their next chapter. Liverpool is no exception and as students are starting to arrive I’m becoming painfully aware that this is the second year that I’m not one of them. When did I get so old? I swear I just finished my A-Levels five minutes ago. Don’t get me wrong, I’m SO thankful that I’m past the days of staying in the library until the early hours of the morning before a deadline (5:30am on one occasion – F U dissertation), but there are some things that make me envious of students.
