Weekly Want No. 2

Another one of my posts where I sit and weep over the lovely things I can't afford! Here's what I love this week!

1. Miss Selfridge Baroque Jumper - I really love this baroque statement print that's around at the moment. Sometimes I think it can look a bit cheap but because this jumper is just in very neutral block colours, I think it looks a lot more expensive than it is. This is a definite snuggly uni chuck it on and go to lecture jumper!

2. Topshop Cat Slippers - I already have a pair of these in red from last winter's range but they are so worn out now, I couldn't bring myself to throw them away until I saw they're restocking in a range of different colours! My fave are the gold ones, but they also do leopard print and (I think!) black.

3. Missguided Pearl and Crystal Blouse - I have a little obsession for button up shirts at the moment, and I think this one would be perfect for a more formal occasion. I'd wear it either under a blazer with skinny jeans, or tucked into some disco pants for a night out :)

4. River Island Double Pocket Longline Vest - I really like this basic top, I just think nude goes with so much, and as we're heading into autumn winter with all the black and grey, this would lighten everything up a bit! I'm very tempted to get one to wear under a cardigan and my brown faux fur coat for when it gets chilly :)

Not one of my usual photos unfortunately, as my tripod has been dropped off at my uni house, so just using Instagram pictures for any blog posts until I'm back at university next week! I bought this blazer from Next a few days ago after seeing it another store a few weeks back but it wasn't available in my size. Fortunately there was a size 8 left yaaaay, so I had to get it. It's a sort of jersey material classified as 'dalmatian print' but I think it's more leopard print personally! With it being jersey, it doesn't crease and is super comfy to wear, fab for when I'm sitting in lectures...or the library (nooo!)!

Tweed & Sparkle

Top - Zara; Jacket - Topshop; Shoes - Primark

Went out for dinner tonight but didn't want to be too dressed up, so I went with my trusty black jeans and this Zara top that I bought in Spain. It's a boucle tweed sort of material, with a black embroidered chain detail around the neck and on the pockets, and a sheer section of material at the bottom. I believe it is sold out online, but is available in the UK in stores I'm sure :) I don't normally wear all black and grey so felt a bit mawky tonight (I think that's a Lincolnshire word sorry!), what I mean is I felt a bit dark and grungy which is definitely not my usual sort of style! I do like just wearing basic colours every now and again though, but a bit more at home in a nice print! Also wearing my lovely new Primark slippers, they're studded all over with little spikes and only cost £12, which may be a bit more pricey for Primark, but there is so much detail in them for such a cheap price!

Studded Jumper

 Jumper - Missguided; Jeans - New Look; Shoes - Topshop

While I was away in Spain I got a huuge delivery of clothes and this was among them. It's a lovely cream chunky knit jumper by Missguided with pretty studded detail on the shoulders. I've never really been a jumper person, for years I've bought so many cardigans but jumpers are sooo much easier for when you're at uni and you need to throw something on at the last minute. This one is probably going to be my fave this year, it's really comfy and I like the 3/4 length sleeves. Also it doesn't drown me like many oversized style jumpers do! I got this in a size S/M and I'm a size 6-8 so you can get an idea of the size! I'm pretty sure it's handwash only because of the studs but I don't care 'cause it's definitely worth it! Just need a nice pair of winter boots to go with it now - shopaholicccccc ;)

Sunny Afternoon

 Jeans - Topshop; Top - Jovonnista; Belt - ASOS; Watch - ASOS

Finally returning to posting after my lovely holiday on the south coast of Spain. I got an actual natural tan for the first time since I was a bambino so I'm very excited to show it off now I'm home! The weather is actually quite nice here today so I decided to wear my new pale lilac Topshop jeans for the first time. I bought these at the beginning of the 'summer' but due to the horrible rain and cloud I never wore them. I teamed them with this floaty grey leopard print tee style blouse by Jovonnista. I absolutely love Jovonna and Jovonnista clothing, they do some really classy pieces, like my lovely blue blazer that I have lived in for years (and will no doubt feature in an outfit post sometime!). It's all thanks to the lovely Pixie Lott that I found this brand, after tracking down lots of clothes that she wore when promoting her debut album. I'm also wearing my new 'boyfriend' watch from ASOS. I decided on a rose gold colour instead of bright gold as I think it'll look a lot nicer set against a lot of the pastel coloured clothes I've got at the moment! 

I have loads of new clothes to blog about (got a maaaaajor deliv while I was away - was just like Christmas when I got home!) and will be posting a lot more on my return to uni, not far away now! :)

 Jacket - Primark; Top - Topshop; Jeans - New Look

Went out for a casual dinner tonight to a little Italian restaurant in town (if you've seen my Tweets you'll know I'm a bit obsessed with antipasti - could live on it for the rest of my life!). We also strangely did sambuca shots at the end of the meal, don't know where that idea came from!
 Didn't want to be too dressed up so just wore my new BARGAIN boucle jacket from Primark (a tenner and it looks so much more!), a black sleeveless peplum top from Topshop and my fave New Look jeans! I never used to be able to find jeans I really liked due to my weirdly proportioned body but these New Look ones are amazing, they're so comfy! I think they're the 'supersoft superskinny' ones, and this colour is my favourite, I think it makes your legs look sooo much slimmer!
