Summer Tribute: OOTD

I'm back! Just an update- After a nail biting summer and a stressful morning of checking UCAS at 6am, then subsquently every 5 minutes, I found out that I'd been accepted at my first choice university! I'm going to be studying a Fashion Management and Marketing degree and moving to a huge city to do it. It's so exciting, I really feel I'm on the path to achieving my dream career in the fashion industry.

Now on to the outfit. I bought this top from Topshop a couple of weeks ago and it's fast becoming my favourite top ever. It's a size 6 but it's still pretty huge (I'm normally a 6-8 in tops) and it's so flattering on. I love the injection of colour it brings to my wardrobe as I wear far too much black normally! It was expensive at £36 but with my student discount it wasn't bad, and I'd rather buy a staple piece I love that will take me through many seasons than something cheap that I'll wear once.

The jacket is another Topshop find. I've wanted to get a light-weight jacket for a while, and since I'm going to uni soon, I think I'll need something I can throw on if it's cold but not cold enough for my winter coat! It goes with so many things I know I'll get my use out of it! Khaki colours and military jackets are really on trend at the moment. This one captures the trend perfectly. It's also got loads of pockets and loose enough to wear a jumper underneath if it's colder- very practical!

I bought the studded bag very recently from Primark of all places! It's a nice shopper and doesn't really look cheap at all. I really think Primark has upped the quality of some of their items lately and I've bought more from there in the past couple of months than usual. I'm wearing my trusty Leigh jeans from Topshop again. They just go with everything! Seriously, if you don't have these in black, I can't recommend them enough. I probably shouldn't admit this but I think they've changed my life..

Also, comment if you'd be interested to hear a bit more about my Uni experience, such as what I've bought, how I'm preparing and how I settle in. 

Expect more posts to come shortly!
