back to school | smart

what i'm wearing:
 
so... this feels a little strange writing this knowing that the last post i put up was extremely personal. thank you for all your lovely comments and support :) so getting back on to things here is another back to school look i've put together. a staple coat is an essential for going back to school/university but you can't splurge either as you'll need to watch the pennies with that student loan! h&m have only just put on the shelves this wonderful wool-like coat for £24.99. yes you heard right. i'm not going to lie i was shocked at the price; considering how well made and heavy the fabric is. appearances go a long way in school, so presentation is important. even if you feel a little down just take an extra five minutes to make yourself look smart and it will make the world of difference. i really love this outfit as it's just clean and minimalistic which is just perfect in my books. if you want to be taken seriously then this is the look for you!

what do you think? let me know.

p.s. i've had my hair chopped off even shorter now, ahh! hopefully i'll have an outfit post debuting the new locks up soon!
