My New Love...Topshop Pinafore Playsuit

 Playsuit - Topshop; Blouse - Forever 21; Shoes - Urban Outfitters; Bracelet - H&M

I have to admit, I'm a little in love with this playsuit. I bought it before Christmas with the mindset that I'd look silly and a bit like I'd come out of the so called 'olden days' in it, a weird thought and hard to express but because of the braces on the back I think. So when it arrived I tried it straight on and that was it, my new baby had been found haha. 
The material is described as crepe, which I thought would crease really easily, but it doesn't seem to have, unless I'm just unaware that I'm subconciously being super careful when I do wear it, but I highly doubt that knowing me! I find it really comfy to wear too, it doesn't dig in or anything, and I don't find it toooo hard to get in and out of, sometimes the straps twist a little but that's the only problem I've had so far. 
I never really used to wear button up shirts but I probably own a few too many these days! This one I bought from Forever 21 when I saw a girl on Take Me Out (of all places!) wearing a very similar one. Unfortunately I can't find this one on the site anymore but they have many similar styles! I love Forever 21 for blouses, they're always good quality and not very expensive at all. When I wear this playsuit I don't tend to wear a lot of jewellery, just because I think the outfit does the talking itself! Cost per wear will definitely not be an issue with this pretty lil' thingggggg.

Have you bought a pinafore style dress or playsuit recently? How do you style yours?

Service is resumed...

Skirt - Topshop; Top - H&M; Shoes - Urban Outfitters; Necklace - Cheap Frills; Bracelets - New Look, H&M and Idollina

Finally I can get back to my blogging. After a stressful start to the year, January exams are over and I can go back to lectures! I practically live in the library through exam time and I haven't been anywhere but university campus or my house of late, so I'm really looking forward to going into town this week for a change of scene, and I need to catch up on what's in the shops and things like that!

I bought this little Topshop skirt off eBay. I've been looking for a camel coloured skirt for a while to dress down with black tights or wear bare legged on a night out, and I managed to get this one for about £6 which is a bargain. I like the leather belt detail with the little bow, means I can just throw it on and not think about wearing a belt because it's already there for me (sounds a little lazy, I know, oops). The necklace I'm wearing is the Prince Puss necklace I featured in my last wishlist, I couldn't resist. Though technically I've bought it as a birthday present, I couldn't help but try it on, and it..sort of...wouldn't come it had to stay there, haha I joke, but any excuse eh ;)

So glad the snow has finally gone and I can stop wearing wellies! Wooo! These shoes are by Deena & Ozzy, I bought mine from Urban Outfitters in the summer. They're just a plain suede ballet pump with a studded gold heel, and I thought they just made a change from completely flat shoes and look a little more dressy :)

Also very excited because I'm - hopefully - buying a new camera soon. Hopefully my picture quality will be a bit better in posts in the future :) *yaaay*

Weekly Want No. 4

(clickable links)

So I'm mid final year of a Biochemistry degree exams at the moment, and also 16 days into my spending ban, and it's not untruthful to say...I'M HURTING! Normally I'd reward my good revision and hard work with a little online purchasey treaty gift, but not this year because I AM STICKING to my resolution (for the moment anyway!). Quite fortunate that it's my birthday next month so I may be allowed a little guilt free indulgence but until then I'm going to be good *dingggg - little halo appears above head*.

Anyway onto my lusting for this week, the Topshop blouse is driving me crazy! It looks so classy but so comfy and I really want it, it's nearly sold out, so I hope they restock it or bring it out in cream! The H&M blouse is also sooo nice, I really like scarf/geometric style prints and button up shirts are so versatile. The Miss Selfridge playsuit would look so cute for summer, maybe not at the moment (literally curling my toes up and the thought of the cold I'm about to walk through in a few minutes!). Put a little bit of jewellery in this post too, necklaces of course ;). The Forever 21 one reminds me of the Zara beaded necklace that was really popular last season, bit sad that it's in silver though, I think gold looks a little more expensive, and the Prince Puss necklace is amazing, I must must have it. It's from a really cute little website called Cheap Frills, and they also do a 'Lord Pug' style -  totally sold!

Hope all my readers are well, and can't wait to be back doing some outfit posts after exams. Until then, it's back to the lovely library I go!
