Weekly Want No. 3

Haven't done a wishlist in soooo long! So here goes....

1. Zara Printed Blouse with Studs - I bought this last night after finally finding out where it was from! I saw a girl wearing it in a pic on Instagram and she made it look so classy, so I hunted it down and found it in Zara! You can't see from the picture but there are little gold studs on the shoulders :) really hoping the dipped neck isn't too low, not a fan of the boney chest look!

2. Internacionale Charcoal Texture Blazer - This looks sooo much like the River Island grey blazer that I bought but was too big for me so had to return! Really want it to come instore (yes I have already checked haha!) so I can try it on because I really need a grey blazer. I think they go with so much and I'm missing one in my wardrobe after my last one went bobbly through excessive wear! If not, I'll just order off the website as Internacionale often have free deliv! Wooooooo!

3. H&M Peter Pan Beaded Collar - This is now out of stock sadly, but I've seen quite a few kicking around on eBay. I've been looking for a nice collar for ages to wear over my jumpers but haven't found a really nice one yet. I like this one because the white would compliment most fabric shades and I'm a sucker for sparkle! 

4. River Island Cream Cat Face Makeup Bag - Not letting this post go without a cat mention (missing my catties so much while I'm at uni - only 3ish weeks til I see the little rascals now!). I think I might need this makeup bag in my life, IT'S SO CUTE! I told my mum the other day, that there's no way I'm going to grow up out of my animal loving, soft toy loving, anything cute and animal related loving phase, so I'm seriously considering purchasing this little cutie! They also do a dog version, but for me it's aaaaaaaaaaall about the cats!

I've made everything I know is available online into clickable links if you're interested :)

Ps. I have also written a new blog post for Her Campus Nottingham on the best leather sleeved coats on the high street - take a look HERE.

FINALLY got a camel coat!

 Coat - eBay; Top - Warehouse; Jeans - Internacionale; Boots - eBay

The title says IT ALL! I've been searching for a camel coat since the beginning of time (aka a number of years) and I have never found one at a suitable price/they drowned me cause I really don't suit boyfriend style etc etc etc. But Becky posted about this one in a wishlist and I recognised it as Topshop, but then clicked on it and it was something like £22 (I've linked to a different seller above as the one I bought has now sold out!). So you guessed, with NO HESISTATION....I clicked the purchase button. It's such a cute feminine shape, okay so maybe not fab for properly cold days because it has cropped sleeves, and you can't really wear super bulky things underneath or it doesn't look right, but for a day like today where the weather is kinda mild it's so nice. Also the style and colour are quite timeless, so I saw it as worth it. Will definitely get my 'cost per wear'! Teamed the coat with my lace peplum top and black jeans and boots :) My nails are my new fav combo Barry M Red Black and Yellow Topaz Glitter just on my accent nails!

Sorry this is a quick post-day at uni post (post post post post post), I seem to just rush about these days. Finally got a chance to sit and write something before I restart the dissertation!

I think I might be obsessed..

 Blouse - ZARA; Skirt - Olive; Boots - eBay

Wearing this OLIVE skater skirt again! I love it sooo much, it's so versatile! I wore it to uni today with my fave ZARA dog print blouse and Chelsea boots from eBay. Been waiting on a pair of flat black studded boots from H&M for a while now, but mum text and they've arrived at home finally, just another 2 week wait til I see her again and I will have new booties, yay! 
Got oneeeeeeeeeeee awful cold at the moment, and so much work to do university wise that I haven't had time to take photos in daylight for a while! These ones are again very fuzzy (technical term right there) and I can't wait to get home to be reunited with my floral wallpaper backdrop and decent lighting!
Might do a wishlist post soon as there is sooo much I want at the moment, Christmas wishlist or something. I've decided to get excited for Christmas for once as Christmas Day will be the only day I'll be taking off completely from my work/university work this year! :)

I Never Wear Green...

 Top - Topshop; Skirt - Olive; Boots - eBay; Nails - Rimmel 60 Seconds in 260 Funtime Fuschia

You can guess from the title what colour I've got on in this blog post, yeaaaah greeeeen! Looking in my wardrobe right now, I have a green dressy dress and a mint green blouse and that is about it! Despite green being a pretty colour (in some shades, not too sure about lime and neons on me!) I just tend to buy grey, cream, navy etc so when I spotted this, I did a naughty impulse buy because I thought the style and the material was sooo nice. It's a Topshop 'peter-pan' style sleeveless top with a lace effect print, which despite the word lace being used to describe, isn't at all see through. It's quite a sturdy material for its price in Topshop too, maybe not so practical for winter but I'll wear it under cardigans and coats and scarves etc, and I suppose it could be worn for nights out too.

I teamed it with a new skirt I bought from Olive (who I was introduced to by reading the beautiful Olivia's blog - you HAVE to read it if you don't already!). I have to rave about this skirt, it was £7 and it is such good material for that money, it's not super flimsy or whatever, in fact it's cheaper than a thinner Primark skirt  that I have, I absolutely LOVE it! I know I'll be able to dress it up or down with so many things and I'm really excited about it, if you hadn't guessed already! I'm tempted to buy it in other colours but I just think the black is so versatile (and I also bought this boucle style skirt too so I'm out of pennies for the moment! Oops!!) But definitely check Olive out, their dresses are absolutely lovely and I keep browsing the knitwear, wishing......!

Ps. awful natural light again, so I did have to switch my light on for these piccies, sorry :(
