you're too busy watching other girls in their little skirts with their pretty curls

 WHAT I WORE:
// skirt: h&m // top: missguided // necklace: new look // fishnets: topshop // shoes - boohoo // earrings: vintage //


Polo necks are forever my favourite thing at the minute - they don't really suit me, but I've decided that I like them too much to mind. This necklace was a birthday present from my friends Rosie and Charlotte (thanks guys, I love you), which I love! It's not something I'd ever think to pick out for myself, but I've fallen head over heels for it and not gone a day without it since my birthday. The fishnets I found in the Topshop sale for a pound, and though I'm not brave enough yet to wear them on their own, layered over normal tights I think they bring a nice texture to an outfit. I feel a bit predictable in this outfit, though - I turned up to college wearing it a few days ago, only to find a girl in my English Lit class also wearing this skirt and another wearing this top! Nonetheless I like wearing it, and so have been outfit repeating an embarrassing amount.


In January I was bursting with motivation and good intention to be a super organised blogger this year, with - would you believe it - a regular blogging schedule, but then (please do excuse my cliché here) life happened and an accidental month passed. It also hasn't helped that amidst the frantic coursework cramming sessions, essay writing and shifts at work, I've worn nothing but cat leggings and dressing gowns... Perhaps not worthy of an outfit post??
It's been a bit of a busy few weeks - my 17th birthday was on the 21st, and it was a lovely, albeit quiet little occasion. Isy, Caitlin, Rosie, Lydia and Charlotte very kindly held me a little surprise birthday dinner with curry, presents and lots of cake which was lovely, and my family and I had a nice meal out and movie night. The day before I also got to catch up with an old friend from primary school who was down from Devon for a few days, which was lovely and the first time we'd seen each other in a good few years!
College is also getting pretty heavy in that we've started looking at what subjects to drop/pick up for next year, and what we want to do after finishing our A-Levels...If anyone would like to pick out a degree course for me, I'd be so okay with that. I think it's safe to say that making big life decisions is NOT something I'm good at.


The title is a lyric from 'Blah Blah Blah', by my new obsession, Girlpool. Based in Philadelphia, Cleo and Harmony make up this guitar/bass duo, and I am forever girl crushing on them! Expect clashing harmonies, blunt lyrics ('it's not enough to watch a movie / eat me out to American Beauty' really shouldn't work but IT SO DOES) and even blunter fringes. Basically, #lifegoals.  Thank you to Caitlin for the introduction!

I hope you're all well, and hopefully it won't be a month 'til next time!
Lots of love xox

  1. I love that skirt!! Happy late 17th birthday... I totally get the use of "life happened". Girlpool is awesome, I saw them in LA a year ago (we have a few mutual friends and they play shows with a few of my friend's bands)!

  3. Someone's obviously deceived you because polonecks are far too great to not make the wearer 20x more attractive. This is actual science.
    I'm rather obsessed with you in this outfit.

  5. i think i am now 100% living for your music recommendations. I can't stop listening to Girlpool, they've given me so much girl band/group appreciation lately! Your outfit is hella cute, your skirt is rad and polo necks are the best. It took me basically 15 years to properly start appreciating them, but they've changed my life, I can't believe I denied my neck-area of this kind of warmth for so long.
