frozen in time





top: H&M
skirt: H&M
jacket: river island
necklaces: forever 21 & jwlry

A bit of rehash of a favourite old outfit with some recent wardrobe additions. One of my favourite long sleeved tops and trusty body con skirts, paired with a River Island black blazer. I often get asked if I wear the same thing more than once, and obviously I do! I aint Rumi Neely! (Quote via Simone!) I don't often repost outfits, even when I wear them twice, because its not that fun seeing the same thing again! I have a pretty good wardrobe rotation scheme and tend to get alot of wear out of all my clothes, despite having alot to choose from! But this top is absolutely one of my favorites and I wear it once a week at least!

Had a epic stress at university today, Sometimes its so disorganized it drives me mad. I some of my work out only to find out that I probably will need to print it all out again smaller because I presumed I'd have more space than I will probably end up having. We haven't been told anything about how to mount our work, what work we should put up or even how much space we have. It needs to be up by Wednesday evening but literally no one came in to college today to discuss it. ARGH! Oh well! Im packed and ready to go on holiday! Cant come soon enough!

  4. I had the spotty version of this top and it shrank in the wash! I was so annoyed because it truely was the ultimate throw on and go top! Love how you've re-styled it and it's nice to know you wear things more than once - that's how it should be! We're not all made of money unfortunately haha!

  5. that blazer is fab, and stripes are such a versatile item :) I rarely post the same outfit either, I think people will find it boring. But this is really different to the way your wore it before and it shows how it's suitable for different occassions :-) amy,x

  19. I love the top. I'm so fickle with clothes, and my favourites change from month to month. I keep things, but forget to re-wear them... They just sit there looking sad!

  28. I'm sorry for your university troubles! I know exactly how you feel, because I'm supposed to have signed up for classes already but everytime I go to the website, it says its down and to come back later. Its giving me so much stress! So I truly hope you get things all figured out! :) and I also have to say its great to hear that you re-wear cloting, like any normal person!

  29. haha, the summer version of your favie outfit! i like seeing pieces repeated to see how you work them into your wardrobe. i have a strict buying budget so i know i can't afford to get new outfits every week! ha.

    but very lovely outfit! great photos!

  42. I get annoyed at my uni too a lot 'cause they always give lecturers classrooms that are too small to hold the entire class. And everything needs to be rearranged.

    Anyway I love this outfit & I think wearing a short skirt the same length as a long t-shirt is a great way to wear it! x

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love those H&M oversized tshirts, I've got a spotty one, a stripey one and a plain one! This outfit looks fab, I love all the necklaces!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have a similar top, and it's one of my go-to's as well!
    I hope your Uni stuff sorts itself out :) At least it's over soon!

  46. I need in on this wardrobe scheme because I feel like I don't get a good amount of wear out of my clothes at all - will have to figure something out! My uni is always disorganised too, its really unsettling being in higher education when theyre messing things up all the time, no more suffering for you now eh? :)

  47. You are my go-to blog! I just adore your style. Lovely look like always, :)
