Mustard tights and Docs


If you are
a) a resident of UK, or any other country with a similar climate, and
b) a frequent wearer of dresses and skirts,
you will be familiar with the fact that tights are indispensable all year round.

Tips for wearing brightly-coloured tights:
  • Ground the outfit's colour palette with a dark base colour, like black, navy or dark grey.
  • Higher boots cover up more of your legs, which can help make your tights seem less alarming.
  • Tie in the tights' colour with just touches of matching colour, or else it'll look too heavy-handedly matchy-matchy.

Things that haven't been on the blog before:
  • Scarves - they were in my mum's wardrobe and are probably as old as me. 
  • Leather skirt - I bought this just after retiring from the blog, and just before uni. It was about £16 which is absolutely ridiculous because it's real leather.
  • Choker - £1 in a sale today.
  • Triforce necklace - a birthday present to myself. I wear it all the time at uni because it is awesome, and also goes with my watch.
  • Satchel - a Christmas present from mum. I try not to think about how much it was; I wouldn't have let her buy it if I were present at the time.

"Because I'm happy"

I wore this to school sometimes and it was totally cool because every student and teacher and cleaner in the place was 100% accustomed to how I dress. A bit of casual cosplay never hurt anyone.

I'm at uni now and I'm going to get super busy, so this will probably be my last post in a while. I feel like this blog has been a major hobby of mine for the past two and a half years, but because I've always known I couldn't keep this up in uni so sort of eased this place into retirement, I feel okay about it. Maybe you can catch me on Tumblr? Haha, I don't even know. This whole dentistry thing I feel is going to get hard. Thanks for sticking around!
