the basics






top: primark (mens tee with sleeves cut off)
skirt: H&M
leggins: american apparell
necklace & rings: jwlry
nails: models own top turquoise
lips: mac hue
dopey face: priceless

Another day, another boring outfit. I promised myself I'd blog every outfit I wore this week, this is an example of a outfit that I'd wear and just not blog about. I dont know why but I really cant be bothered to dress up any further than the basics at the moment. Maybe its because I havent left the house once again or Im just a little uninspired with the clothes I have. It could also be that I just like dressing really simple, I dont see the point in being fussy and OTT, just isn't me! I don't particularly like patterns or florals! Spent today rummaging through boxes of clothes, rediscovering old favorites and sorting my ever growing charity pile out.

I graduate tomorrow which is super exciting, end of a era and all that. The idea of being a real adult, having to find a job and pay for stuff without the help of a student loan its kinda daunting. Its exciting too though. Got some cool opportunities coming up at the moment which is really inspiring me to keep working hard and going forward.

  3. I love simple outfits. They don't have to be boring.

    And YAY for graduating!!! I am graduating too and looking for a flat and a job is so stressful. I'm gonna miss my careless student days...

  11. I'm going through the exact same thing at the moment with wearing basics everyday. I like to pretend i'm going with a more "classic" look but in reality its just laziness!
    Congrats on graduating, enjoy tomorrow!

  20. It is a bit odd about graduating huh? I graduate this year as well and it's just weird to think about being completely done with schooling for once! But congrats again to you! Big stuff is on its way.

    Are you still sporting your spray tan? Because your color looks lovely! And I like the outfit--basics = thumbs up.

    Great photos, great post!

  21. Simple, but looks good, you can't be expected to have completely unique look every day

  35. Your hair is looking lovely. You actually get dressed when your at home? I stay in my pj's all day but that's not good when you get an invite to go out and say no because it takes over an hour to get ready. Probably just me though.
    I hope you have a lovely graduation, that's so exciting. I guess you're lucky you have a really successful blog to help you, I wonder if mine will help me in the future haha. Sophie stop rambling.

    Oh I think it's letting me post a comment now. ^^
