Managed to catch the very last of the golden hour after dinner in Chinatown. I bought this as my Christmas dress but was so ill over Christmas that I didn't manage to take any photos. So here, only a few months late… :)

Matisse tshirt from Amsterdam
Ashley Williams scarf
vintage jacket
Asos tights
New Balance trainers
Pandora bracelet

I wear this skirt rarely because I find it really hard to pair with jackets… But now I have the perfect combination with this vintage jacket! Also this corner of scarf is the perfect size to tie around my neck and I'm not kidding when I say it goes with practically every thing I own. I dare to say it may even be becoming my signature look… must go on a hunt for more tiny silk scarves (slash cut some up…). :)

Ain't we all just Japanese when we're high on love?

dress made by me
old denim jacket pimped out by me
gifted plastic rings
Pandora bracelet
New Balance trainers

It was my birthday a couple of days ago and this is what I wore to turn the big 2-0! It's a little hard to feel depressed about getting older when you're dressed like a Tumblr 5 year old on acid… in a denim jacket you've had since you were a kid. And obviously also the dress I made for my print project. It's actually really comfortable and super fun to twirl around in as the front polka dot inserts flare out beautifully (which is nice because that's what I was hoping for when I designed it). :)

I'm currently back in Manchester for a week and it's so weird, coming back and seeing how much has changed since I moved to uni in September. I also very hurriedly packed a random assortment of clothes so the next few days may be interesting… :)

vintage coat and sunglasses
Urban Outfitters jumper

A little mountain air never did no harm. I bought this coat a few weeks ago when I went home and basically lived in it ever since. It's fabulous, semi-ridiculous and converts literally anything into a winter-appropriate outfit. :)

This was the first beautiful, sunny, warm (relatively speaking) spring-like day this year! I meant to go to the studio and do some work but got lost and distracted with a couple of friends and we ended up going on a lil' hike around the cute little village. I can't believe I didn't actually bring any shorts to uni (to be fair, I did pack for winter) so borrowed my flatmate's. And her Docs… which are basically mine at this point. :)

This was an oh-god-I'm-late-for-a-9am-lecture look, but halfway through said lecture I realised it was also a really good look. When I picked up this dress, which is several sizes too big for me, I meant to take it in at the waist, but I actually love the silhouette with a belt. I think I need more long swishy dresses. :)
