Always there when in need


So what I'm wearing today is my go-to outfit,the type of outfit that does not require a lot of thought but that I'm still a big fan of. This consists of a baggy t-shirt, old faithful Leigh skinny jeans from Topshop and brogues. I wear this kind of outfit, on a busy day like today, rushing about all over the place. I've added some jewellery, just to jazz it up a bit. Lets have a little discussion about my necklace due to the fact that I'm quite new to this statement necklace malarkey. When these necklaces first started getting popular late last year, I just wasn't very keen on them and didn't feel like I suited them but after reconsidering and buying one for my friends engagement party a few months ago, I found that after all that hating, I actually liked them! I am now the proud owner of 4 statement necklaces.

I love this t-shirt, I know it doesn't look overly exciting but I don't know what it is I just really like it, the colour, the fit and the actually style of it is just cool. I got it from Topshop a few weeks ago and it was only £16, its available in a black and white too, I can hear them calling my name already. I think this is quite a versatile t-shirt too because although its quite casual, I would probably wear this on a night out with maybe a maxi skirt or shorts and lots of jewellery. Rant over about the most wonderful t-shirt in the world :).

Sorry about the sideways pictures of my shoes and rings, I'm not sure why these are sideways and it was not through lack of trying that they did not rotate. 

Until next time!

Willow Pattern

So here goes my first outfit post, I don't know why but I have been thinking about this the last few days (this blog is taking over my life and its only my second post) and getting a bit nervous. This is actually the outfit I wore last night on a wee date with my lovely boyfriend. I got this shirt whilst I was in London a few weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE it, the pattern on it reminds me of some ornaments my gran has, which are called willow pattern and although I don't think its exactly the same pattern, its very similar. I actually saw Caroline Flack wearing this shirt on The Xtra Factor and kept harping on about it through the whole programme but really thought it would be designer, so when I clocked it in Topshop I knew it had to be mine :). I just kept this outfit smart-casual adding some navy Leigh skinny jeans from Topshop and some black suede loafers, also from Topshop.

Also thought I would showcase my new coat, also from Topshop (can you see a bit of a trend here). I got it about a month ago and am loving it. I have really wanted a coat like this for quite a while now and had a tragedy last year when I odered a similar one from ASOS and it was too big and when I tried to order a smaller size the coat was sold out. Thankfully that tragedy ended this year when I got this one, I just know this coat and I will be the best of friends.

First post

Hey, I am a second year Fashion Management student at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and I have started this blog as part of my coursework for my Fashion Communication module. I'm known to have had a fair few problems with computers in the past, so technology and I are not the best of friends but I will try my best to make my blog a fun and interesting read and hey you never know I might turn into a blogging superstar (I wish). 

This blog will be a mix of my outfit posts and hopefully some short interviews with independent boutiques and perhaps a few people who work in the fashion industry. Although I still have to enquire about doing some short interviews, this is on my "to do" list and I will keep you updated on this.

So here I am :), just a little "snapshot" of me taken when I was in London last weekend (oh how I miss good old London town already).
