Tight Jeans & Sheer Blouses



It's amazing how a night of rain can affect your surroundings, the stone walls of the cathedral are so dark and the dampness is so prominent in these pictures!

 Once these jeans are on, they are ON. These are the best high waisted fitted jeans I have because they are the only pair that actually reach my waist (thank heavens for Asos Tall section!) However, they aren't the comfiest. You can imagine what it's like eating in that thing. On a few occasions I thought the button might break and accidentally hit someone in the face, true Aunt Marge style. 

Most of my wardrobe currently consists of smart blouses and tops, so whenever I'm going for a more casual look, I pair them with a pair of ripped jeans and my docs. I have two white sheer blouses, the one pictured here and this one that I have worn in a previous post. The fabric is so delicate, sheer with minimalist detailing: little dots of fabric which give the piece a dreamy aspect to it. The 3/4 sleeves are elasticated with a little ruffle detail, anchoring this piece in this S/S ruffle trend. The boat neckline is really flattering, just revealing the collarbones. The only issue I have with this blouse is finding the right underwear for it, trying to find pretty under-wired bralets is proving to be extremely difficult. I would suggest wearing a nude color bra instead of a white one.

As I was carrying a lot with my that day, I bought my big shopper bag and wore Holly's chunky heels with it. (All pieces listed at the end of the post!)

Ivy



I'm so in love with this bomber jacket from Zara. I desperately needed something new for spring, as all my coats were too warm, or not suitable for the rain. Yes, I've recently posted a look with the same jacket, but it's too nice and I had to style it with different items! I decided to opt for a simple casual look on this day, wearing this black smock dress from Mango, the perfect little black dress for the spring/summer season, with my small Zara shoulder bag.

My Future Bedroom


For the first time in over three years, I will have my own bedroom back home! The timing is perfect, as my room will be ready to move in just as I move out of my flat in town.
Although I had my own bedroom at our flat, this is the first time ever that I will have my own room at our family home in countryside, and so I have complete freedom to decorate it as I wish.

Suede and Bomber: the spring jacket




As a great animated futuristic robot once said, We're back baby! Now that we have time to create more content for the blog, Holly & I decided to put our outfits in the same post for the first time in ages!

I love walking around town in the sunshine. Each little narrow cobbled street is filled with people when the sun shines, and the atmosphere varies depending on the time of day. Yet, there are always people queuing for pastries outside the small bakery across the square, most of the cafe chairs outside are filled with people chattering and of course the open book stalls are fully stocked, hundreds of books waiting to be read.  For the first time ever my wardrobe is pretty much summer ready, which means that most of my outfits aren't wearable yet because it still isn't warm enough. I debated going bare-legged this day but didn't want to risk catching a cold!

The pirate blouse


We had such a lovely day when we took these. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, families were picnicking in the park, making the most of the bright Wednesday afternoon. It feels so good to go out and enjoy our free time, not having to worry about Uni assignments or presentations and exams. I've been able to somewhat establish a new schedule, getting back into my workout routine and reading some amazing books. As for my sleeping schedule, well that's a different matter.

From Eden




As of May the 1st 2016, I am *officially* free of university. 3 years studying Film & Theater are over and done with. I can't believe just how quickly the past few years have gone! (and that I actually managed to stick to it and reach the finish line!) Despite a lot happening in these three years, University was the one constant anchoring me in my day-to-day life. I will receive my final results in June, meaning these next few weeks will be a sort of in-between period. Until all the big changes commence, until I move on to (hopefully) bigger and better things, I plan on enjoying these few months of freedom!

35mm film- New York & Toronto. December 2015


My mind truly has been overrun with thoughts of University, of deadlines and exams these past few weeks. So much so that I completely forgot to post these film pictures when I uploaded them not too long ago. Now, with University finally over, with 4 months of complete freedom ahead of me, I can finally dedicate all my time to the blog, something that I've truly missed doing.

We took these 35mm film pictures on our Canon a1 during our last day of our trip to New York in December.
