Yay - today is a bonus day off of school thanks to the horrible blizzard conditions outside. I’m really hoping they go away soon - it’s supposed to be March tomorrow, I don’t particularly want snow! Regardless, the weather leaves me with time for a day of semi-relaxation or, in my case, some extra time to finish loads of work (life has been crazy busy lately which is why there’s been a bit of a gap in posting). I’m hoping to be able to catch up and chill out a little today - I really do need some time to de-stress!
Anyway, in complete contrast to the current heavy snow, Glasgow actually had a little sun (plus a slight rise in temperatures too!) last weekend, so I thought I’d do a mini fashion post about my new favourite outfit…
A couple of weeks ago I had my eyes retested after noticing a slight difficulty in seeing long distance even with my glasses on. Turns out my prescription has increased a fair bit and I now need to wear glasses pretty much full time (I’m in the process of giving contact lenses a go too, but they’re an absolute nightmare - any tips for getting them to stay in my eye would be much appreciated!). So with my prescription changing I finally got to pick a new pair and I’m now completely in love with these huge Dior frames! They’re a really great fit and I love the dark red frame with a little white on the inside to help brighten my face.
I bought my top from TK Maxx (I’ve only recently discovered how brilliant this shop is - would totally recommend if you haven’t tried it yet) for only £12.99 - I love the laid-back style with the cutouts both front and back.
My jeans were a spontaneous purchase from Topshop for £40. I’ve been hunting for a pair of skinny jeans for months with no success, until last time I was in Topshop and I thought I might as well give mom jeans a go. Turns out they’re amazing!! They’re super comfy and I love the frayed, slightly cropped edges with a high waist too. 10 out of 10 would recommend - and even if you’re not a fan of mom jeans, next time your jeans shopping it’s worth picking up a couple of different styles because you never know what you might end up liking!
Last of all are my new Vans. The black and white is relatively basic but I opted for a slight difference getting platforms. Having been a Converse fan for years I have to admit I’m a total Vans convert - they’re much more comfortable for extended periods of walking and they have such a variety of styles too. For £55 the authentic platforms were a great buy - unfortunately the website won’t let me link to the black and white version, so here’s a link to the same style in other colours.
Once again, photo credits go to my mum - I really couldn’t do these fashion posts without her! And as usual I’d love to hear your thoughts on my outfit - which of my new items is your favourite? I’d love to know how your weather is compared to the horrors in Glasgow too. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!
