Apologies for the incredibly grainy photo. I got back an hour ago and I literally rushed to get a photo of this blazer. I bought it earlier this week in Zara and I am so obsessed with the print! It is so perfect for when you are feeling a little uninspired and all you want to do is wear black jeans and a black or white top. I can't wait for summer to roll around so I can wear this with a pair of high-waisted shorts and a white crop top!
Sorry for the even later post today! My dad and I were out all day today and the weather was utterly miserable. It was raining so much! We had dinner in the centre of Grenoble and so tonight here I am with a little collage of Topshop items I have put together for an outfit I would most likely wear to an early dinner on a summer night. I would never have thought the lace top would match the bright paisley print shorts but I think the patterns compliment each other quite nicely. The top and shorts alone are quite girly, so the chain necklace and burgundy buckle boots will certainly toughen up this whole look. The strappy top is quite casual on its own so the white blazer will instantly add a sprinkle of sophistication and to finish off, the sunglasses and an extra coolness to the entire look. I will be in London in roughly a week - I am going to have to restrain myself from going on a Topshop rampage whilst I am there!
Credits to my papa who took these photos today! We stopped in a small French town, followed by Geneva and then finally arrived in Grenoble after 11h in the car. We are setting off early tomorrow to get a good spot at the stadium where my bebe brother is playing with the Luxembourg national team in the European U18 rugby championship. I am so excited to see him play! I plan on wearing this hat so he can spot me easily haha. Ooh - these sunglasses are new and perhaps one of my favourite purchases in the recent weeks (besides the bag) - they have a really cool matte black frame. I first saw a similar pair on Judy's vlogs ItsJudysLife and really loved how they looked so when I was having a cheeky browse in Urban Outfitters and saw they were only 16 GBP, I kinda had to get them!

Boy am I on a roll with these outfit posts! I was quite surprised these photos came out as good as they did because it was already starting to get pretty dark. I thought they were going to be really grainy but they came out fine. I really like this long stripey dress as it highlights my badonkadonk quite nicely haha. I could not put up any side shots as, well, my butt looked HUMONGOUS. The last outfit was pretty girly so I felt like badass-ify-ing this outfit with my studded Topshop jacket, my River Island satchel with silver hardware and to top it all off, my new side cut out boots also from River Island. If I was going to wear this out for the whole entire day I'd probably through on an extra cropped cardigan, some black tights and a beanie. Being cold when I am out and about is what I hate more than anything so I really like to cosy it up.
PS, I finally made a fb page. For all of you who aren't on blogger, if you like the page you can see my updates/links/photos there XOXO

Nestling safely back home, I began to wonder what it would be like to see my younger brother graduate this coming July and, more importantly, what I am going to wear. I picked out this paisley print side cut out dress from AX Paris and I think this one is definitely a winner for my brother's big day. Hopefully it will be nice and summery - this dress will go so well with a white blazer and a nude clutch.
If the side cut out look is your cup of tea then they also have this print in a scallop vest and a mini sleeved dress which is elasticated at the waist. As was picking out shoes for the outfit I grabbed the only nude pair that I have here in Luxembourg and now I have just realised that they are actually AX Paris wedges as well! I bought them in the sale last summer for about 25 GBP.
I would like to say that I am back with a bang. I am terribly sorry that my blogging has been very questionable lately with random photos here and there but here we are with an outfit post! I met up with a friend today and then went on a bit of shopping spree. I have to be honest with you, I was already on a spree before I had boarded my flight to Luxembourg yesterday. I popped into the Accessorize at Gatwick airport as I had a few minutes to kill before they announced the gate and BAM I saw this bag.
Now, I have to say that I have been on the prowl for a decent structured bag for over a year and there was something about those Zara bucket bags that were just not doing it for me... Do you ever see a bag and think that it's too big (or small) for the design? I just thought there was something a bit off about it so I never purchased one. I'm so thankful that I waited. This bag has a zipped section in the middle for valuables which I liked the most. I also prefer the gold hardware on this bag as well as the mini pocket on the outside which I will undoubtedly use for train tickets - I'm always losing them at the bottom of my bags! They have them in loads of different colours: Pink, Cream, Khaki, Grey (but it looks like more of a beige to me), Navy, Brown and Turquoise.
I bought this bag in the airport for £30 - yay for tax free shopping
Coat - River Island
Bag - Accessorize
Jeans - Topshop
Boots - River Island
I was in need of desperate retail therapy today so I hopped in a cab to go to town and when crazy. I always start my shopping trips in Primark and there I found two really nice tops which you'll be seeing in outfit posts very soon, and a pair of aztec print shorts. I bought various other little things like my mama's birthday presents but on my way to the bus stop I popped into River Island to have a cheeky browse and came across these cutout boots. I've been really wanting a pair for a while but have kinda been um-ing and ah-ing about it. Topshop have a pair for £75 so I was pretty happy to find the ones above for £65. I cannot wait to try wear these boots with loads of different outfits I now have in mind!
It has been severely cold in England again so my fingers are numbing up as I write this. It was so nice last week! Oh well. I decided to whip out the handmade beanie which my Grandma's friend made for me when I went to Japan two months ago. It is perhaps THE warmest hat I have ever owned - perfect for walking back from campus with bitterly cold winds blowing in your face.
