hiking


 Obviously I did not go 'hiking' in this. The shoes, for one, would not be practical, and I do own mud encrusted leather walking boots too. I just feel like I've been hiking through everything at the moment- uni work- mental health- dealing with people problems- and so, hiking. Also, the socks. The socks are very hiking. 

I keep meaning to 'up my outfit game' as we said back in the day, but uni is so uninspiring (man I miss London) and a) having to walk or cycle everywhere and b) the permanent precipitation, mean my outfits are vetted by weather SO much, including makeup, and my hair goes everywhere, and I only own a few pairs of long-walking-comfy waterproof shoes... so... yeah. I need to pick myself up. Basically. (AND I missed London fashion week. One year I will go. ONE YEAR.)

This isn't even a great outfit- I just happened to take photos of it. So, I shall try and step back up soon. I can't believe I haven't posted by new-ish lime green wool shift yet. It's warm and cozy and I basically live in it... 

White long sleeve- primark. Black tunic jumper- Zara. Shorts- New Look. Waistcoat- Dad's old one. Necklace- accessorise. Leggings- ??. Socks- Primark. Boots- Clarks. Lipstick, L'oreal (Blake.) 

H out.

Bib and Tuck

This is just a quick clothing list post. I had this website bookmarked for an AGE- even after I found I couldn't use it because I'm not in the US. I just look at it occasionally and weep over the weird clothes they have on there that I WANT SO BADLY. 

So this is just a heads up for US people. Have a poke. I mean, it's probably good for my unemployed student wallet that I can't buy from them, but...


And if we just ignore the fact that I still can't afford 80% of these and I don't understand US sizing... YEAH. 




Also since when did the person who vowed never to wear black (failed, often) only pick out grey-scale dresses? What's happened to me?!

Okay, well in day to day life, not much because I still dressed like a 4 year old on a hike when I was a 21 year old on a hike. #FASHUN yh yh


look at this overexposed adult in a coastal cave with a woolly hat and clashing scarf and raincoat :D
ah, "aesthetics" xD

Winter/Spring


I was dressing like an autumn day yesterday to cycle in the rain and go to lectures, then run around in the dark and cold to by cream to make sticky toffee puddings. Very autumnal. Today, though, it's as sunny as anything and I'm wearing florals. (Florals for spring... groundbreaking.) Hey ho- early spring/late winter is a strange time of year in the UK. Rain. SUN. Rain, rain. SLEET. SUN. BOTH.

(Also I met a donkey!)
Cowl neck, Topman from a charity shop. Vest top- Primark. Cardigan, TU. Skirt, charity shop. Tights, Primark. Boots, Clarks. Lipstick, No.7 ?.

I've also got my yearly spring flowers. Seems to be a uni tradition- I just adore the scent of hyacinths (someone bottle it and sell it to me, oh gosh) so they were only £3 so... I just have to get some. Watching them grow too, is nice. Kinda soothing and rewarding and I definitely don't ever talk to them and pet them. No no. 

These are blue ones, although last year I bought blue and they were pink. ^^

 And my baby succulents, grown from... stolen leaves. xD They're pretty much in hibernation over winter, not much growth going on but at least I haven't killed them... yet? Uh uh. #hipsterplants

Hope you're all well!

Blue Hair


I'm about 4 years late to the bloggers dying their hair weir shades thing, but what with anxiety about graduating and severe depression I needed a cheerful change. It was meant to be a deeper pure blue, but I like the way I accidentally matched it to my new headphones. This was dye # 1 so it's possibly slightly deeper in colour by now, as I've gone over it, if growing out at the roots. I used this to bleach, and this to dye. Dyed at home with help of a parent for the bleach. (The ends have a tendency to fade to green fast because I still had henna on the last inch of hair.)

And have half an outfit featuring yellow eyeshadow because whatever.


 Dungarees, ASOS. Yellow T-shirt, Asos (charity shop). Grey long sleeve, market stall. Cardigan, hand me down. Eyeshadow, market stall fake brand weird stuff. Necklace, Accessorize.

Toast


 Dress, charity shop (Zara), Jacket, TU.Tights who knows. Shoes, Primark. Lipstick, Rimmel.

Wore this to see "Toast" at the Park Theater, London. HIGHLY recommended. Compelling and funny and honest. :)

I was trying to go futuristic and boxy- contrasting necklines. Black and Blue.
I'm back at uni now and I feel the need to up my dressing weird game. Watch this space.
