Outfit: ASOS Back To School #3

IMG_4999 IMG_5022 IMG_5027 IMG_4995 IMG_5042

ASOS Sweatshirt* / Missguided Blazer* / ASOS Trousers / ASOS Bag / ASOS Loafers* / ASOS Collar (last year)

So here is my third back to school outfit. I've gone for a bit of slouchy tailoring vibe, dressed down with a staple basic sweatshirt. I would probably wear this outfit if I was for example, presenting or having an interview for something. My cow collar is from ASOS last year, though they have lots of similar furry goodness on the site right now, I think they can just top off an simple outfit and give a bit of oomph to a monochrome colour palette. I have to say I am totally in love with these loafers, they make me feel so swarve haha! I don't think I've had a pair of shoes so shiny, plus they're comfy too and not too hard like some loafers are (no blisters so far!).

So today I headed back to uni for my first day of third year, BOO! It was an exhausting day, I forgot how tiring lectures are haha. On one hand I can't wait to graduate, start earning money and enter the real world but on the other hand I will miss spending a Monday morning eating cereal and watching netflix.

Outfit: ASOS Back To School #2

ASOS Duster Coat / ASOS Sweatshirt* / Ralph Lauren Shirt / ASOS Skirt / ASOS Backpack* / Topshop Boots (last years)

My second look in my back to school series with ASOS, what do you think? Teaming a leather pencil skirt with a slouchy sweatshirt or tee is one of my favourite combos, it also makes a change from black skinnies which I can be guilty of wearing all too often. When in doubt whack on a duster coat, this is my new motto. I'm building up quite a collection as they're just so versatile and really top off an outfit. Of course a casual college/uni outfit wouldn't be complete without a backpack, ASOS have an abundance of amazing styles so be sure to check them out. I start my first day of third year lectures tomorrow (gulp), so my summer is well and truly over! I suppose I can't complain, it is almost October after all - oh the life of a student!

Outfit: ASOS Back To School #1

IMG_5126 IMG_5129 IMG_5175 IMG_5146 IMG_5170

Hi guys! So this week there will be a 'back to school' takeover on my blog, I've teamed up with ASOS to bring you five different on campus looks featuring some of their key pieces. I think it's so handy to have a solid wardrobe of basics that are easy to mix and match, as being on a student budget means having to be a little creative! First up is the black loafer, definitely a staple piece in anyones wardrobe,  I teamed mine with culottes which have become a firm favourite. They're so easy to dress up or down plus they go with pretty much any tops and knitwear. This is a typical day-today outfit that I would wear, plus it's also perfect for any post lecture vodkas ;). For anyone who doesn't know, I study fashion marketing at Northampton Uni, if you have any questions about my course or uni in general feel free to send me an email or tweet me!

What do you think of this look? Stay tuned for another look tomorrow!

Outfit: Warehouse Checked Cape

IMG_4812 IMG_4808 IMG_4859 IMG_4871 IMG_4835 IMG_4867

Warehouse is on fireeee at the moment! It's seriously gone up in my estimations, I've always had a little mooch in there but never really bought much. However their latest collection, and slicker website has drawn me in, I caved and made a little order as they're currently offering 20% off for students with Unidays. I can't believe this cape only ended up costing me £24, bargain! I also bought the sleeveless roll neck which I'm wearing underneath, I'd been eyeing it up for while and well I was making an order so I thought why not! My trousers are newbies too, the 'peg leg' cut drew me towards them as I wanted a pair of faux leather trousers that weren't leggings or jean-esque. These are okay, there's random pockets of loose material which is a bit annoying but they were only about 35 pounds so I can't complain too much. 

I've got my work cut out for me next week, I'm back at uni for my third and final year (*gulp*) and I also have a couple of exciting 'back to school' projects which will takeover my blog for the next 7 days. Oh and don't forget to enter my Sugarhill Boutique competition to bag a £50 voucher!
