back to school | casual

14/09/2014






what i'm wearing:
ASOS ultimate chunky jumper*
H&M burgundy fedora hat (similar here)
TK maxx printed notebook (similar here)
ASOS bonjour canvas tote bag*
H&M various stone rings 

yay i finally have had my hair done! i know it sounds a little mental but the difference it can make to how you feel about yourself is unparalleled. i'd been feeling a bit lazy with my look before; always having it tied up in a top-knot, but now i'm looking forward to making the effort again. i've gonna for a mega cool toned, clean blonde and i just hope i can keep it up looking this way.

anyway to the actual outfit post, many of us are either back to school or will be soon. whether it's secondary school, university or even just at home trying to do some self education. asos challenged me to be able to create five back to school looks with five pieces so here is my first; and probably the most likely, back-to-school look. when you're at university sometimes practical prioritises style, but don't try and compromise it completely! jeans are always a staple piece and with a knitted jumper i just love how simple it looks. with a good pair of loafers and added hat (perfect for bad-hair days if you've woke up late - you know it happens!) for good measure. comfortable but still looking good, right? what do you think? is this something you would think of wearing when you're back to school/uni? let me know!

p.s my lipstick shade is YASH by MAC - it's matte finish and i am obsessed with wearing it all the time.

  19. I'd totally wear this! And I agree about making an effort. In my freshers year at uni I totally gave into the uggs and massive hoodies, which looking back was definitely not my best look! A little bit of effort goes a long way :) xx
