Whilst I am sat here in my old bedroom back home - which feels so distant now that I have moved away - I thought I would write to you all and update you on some of my current favourite staple items of clothing. I have literally just painted my nails a festive and sparkling silver, as they have grown incredibly long over the past weeks. So, I am taking full advantage of this before they become broken or chipped, however it is considerably more difficult to type with speed. Lol. It's a hard nut life.
So this evening I aspire to share with you a few treasures that I have recently and guiltily purchased from Asos. And may I add that my addiction with online shopping on Asos has peaked awfully high, In fact I am unsure how I still have any of my student loan left, to be honest. But, without further adoo, here is my little ensemble.
- OUTFIT -
Parka Coat: Noisy May (Asos)
Check Shirt: Noisy May (Asos)
Boots: New Look (Asos)
This outfit is especially casual, and comfortable, which is perfect for the winter months when all you really want is to be cosy on the sofa with a cuppa tea, a Christmas film and a good snuggle. But in reality, Christmas shopping and other errands need to be completed so stepping out into the cold brisk air needs to be made as warm as possible. This coat was a complete impulse buy as I have already bought a new jacket for this winter, however for just £35, I found it difficult to resist. Furthermore, I have been loving Noisy May this month, so my faith was in them to provide me with a great winter coat for an affordable price. This navy blue parka really is great, its so warm, not too big and 'puffy' and it generally is a successful buy. The only let down of this coat however *sips tea in disgust*, is that the hood is a ridiculous size, and despite the fact I already have a little pea head, I really do look swallowed by the hood of this coat. Ah well.
Secondly, this oversized check shirt. I love it. I have been obsessed with checked shirts at the moment, they're my new found love 100%. It is also from Noisy May, and I just adore it because I think its the perfect oversized fit. It is also super soft to touch, and isn't too thin nor too thick, so can be versatile in terms of layering. I am also fond of the colours of this shirt, I think the navy blue and white work really well with the lime green stripes running throughout, and adds a little something extra to your standard checked shirt. A hit from me!!!
So, back at it again with the jeans. Jeans are my absolute go-to at the moment, because I'm not really girly enough to be wearing tights and dresses during winter on a daily basis, and I'm also not a huge wearer of cigarette trousers or leggings, etc. Consequently, I've been eyeing up a lot of pairs of jeans and these Asos jeans have been on my mind for a while, but I've been unsure as to whether I should purchase a pair like this. To my surprise however, I am in love. The dark blue colour was new to me but I really love it, and there are small white flecks within the denim to give them a little bit of an edge which I think breaks up the fact these are a really bold blue. Also, the bottom of these jeans are raw edged, and cut shorter at the front than at the back, which has been an upcoming trend this Autumn/Winter so I was desperate to jump on the bang wagon - and I have. The only thing I would say, and this goes for all the Asos jeans that I own is that the waist line isn't the most figure hugging, and I sort of find myself with a baggy waistline particularly when I sit down. I may need to size down, I'm not entirely sure. But otherwise, all good feedback so far.
Lastly, these New Look worker style boots. Now, I've been really drawn towards the idea of purchasing some Dr Martens, however the price really does put me off, I just can't seem to justify spending over £100 on some boots, regardless of how much I will love them for eternity. So, I was scouring for an alternative worker style boot, when I cam across these on the Asos app. These cost £30, which I think is a great price for a pair of sturdy boots, and I must say, they were comfortable immediately after purchasing them. I have had no trouble with blisters or rubbing and they really don't look inexpensive in my opinion. I have worn these most days for about a month now and there are no signs of wear and tear, aside from mud because I seem to get shoes muddy effortlessly. So I would highly recommend these. They also have a rust red colour which I am tempted to get my hands on, so check them out!
As always, welcome to the second side of my blog; the newest addition to my slither of the internet. To be honest, I have no urgent information that I want to share, nor do I have anything particularly inspiring to say. However, as everyone does, I do have feelings so I figured maybe if you read these blog posts, maybe you're a little bit interested about me and whats goin' on in my life. So really, this is just a little comforter to make you aware that I'm pretty happy at the moment, I'm in a really good place and considering this year has been awfully rocky in places, I feel like the start of something incredible has begun and that a multitude of adventures are going to take place from here. I am very much looking forward to making 2017 a fantastic year filled with delightful memories, but I will delve into that moreso when it's a bit closer to the new year's arrival. Other than that, all I've to say is that I'm excited for Christmas; I am loving University still although the holiday workload is a pain; I'm really content with George; I am drinking too much hot chocolate and not enough mulled wine, and I want to spend the remainder of these holidays curled up on the sofa watching Christmas film after Christmas film with my dogs and family. So I bid you all farewell for now, see you very very soon, and love to you all.
