Update + OOTD | A Place We Call New

Jumper - Charity Shop | Skirt - Matalan | Shoes - Primark | Lipstick -  Bourjois in "Nude-ist"

Hello lovelies, it's been a while! 

Not much has changed since my last post, but I did (if it's not obvious) get my septum pierced! I was getting bored of my nose ring and have always loved septum piercings so I decided I'd go for it. I also got a temporary job at Next for a bit of summer, I actually had my first day today and it was actually quite nice. I am very scared for the sale to start on Saturday though, I do hope the customers don't go all crazy! The last bit of exciting news that I actually recieved today is that I got into university! It feels surreal, I wasn't expecting my results until next month and then all of a sudden I got an email from UCAS telling me my conditional offer has changed to unconditional, I am a very happy girl.

I've been wanting to feature this white jumper for a couple of months now and it's such a shame that I waited until the colour faded into an off-white to show it! I came across this skirt in Matalan a couple of months ago and thought it was so cute. I never actually bought it as I didn't think it would look right on me but I saw it again when out shopping the other day and saw the £4 price tag and thought it would be rude not to! It's super high waisted and says on the tag that it's part of a two-piece set, it would be lovely to find the top to this as I'm loving co-ords this season. The skirt fits much better than expected, it didn't look very skatery when I first saw it, but on it does! I paired these two items with a nude/pink lip and pointy flats.

OOTD | All the pretty stars shine for you, my love


Cami - £8, Hotpants £5 - Clothesminded* | Shirt -River Island |  Boots - River Island

Hello all, how are you?
I have been absent from blogging due to life stresses and college work, but yesterday I finally finished my two years at college and am already feeling bored of summer!

Any hoo, I was so happy to be sent these hotpants from clothesminded as I'm always in the same bottoms, it's nice for a change. I've been wearing these hotpants religiously, they're so comfy and don't stretch after wearing or washing them (winning!).What I love about these hotpants is that they're very weather appropriate and super high waisted! They look great paired with absolutely anything, I almost feel like I should be on a beach! I forgot to take a clear picture but they have two big pockets at the front, such a nice touch and so useful for summer if you don't want to carry around a bag.  I paired these pants with another item from clothesminded, it's this tribal print cami that has a fringe, so paired with the hotpants gives off a festival-y vibe! I topped this all off with a red shirt, I'm not one for showing arms so I think this makes a nice cover up.
