I found me a hopeless case

30/01/2014
Dress: Republic         Cardigan: Missguided          Necklace: Topshop
Watch and bracelets: both gifts



This week, I'm back in lectures and seminars for my last ever term of university! That's such a scary thought. It's great to be back in the routine, but at the back of my head I've constantly got the nagging question of what happens after uni?! The next few months are going to involve filling out a lot of applications!

I wore this outfit on Monday, which is my busiest day again this term, so I thought I'd better wear something fairly comfy! If my last two outfit posts have been very spring-like, this one is defiantly autumnal! This wasn't intentional, I just really like the combination of these colours - rich, rusty colour palettes are probably my favourite thing about autumn fashion. Who says we can't also rock them in spring?


Jacket: Zara          Bag: River Island         Snood: gift

Just add a jacket, a snood and of course a big bag packed full (mostly with lunch, not books), and I was all set for hours of lectures and meetings! I love being busy, though, especially when it means getting loads done right at the start of the week.

I bought this jacket in Zara the autumn before last, and it's been such a great cross-season jacket. Also, you can't see in this photo, but it has some lovely gold stud detailing around the collar, which is what drew me towards it in the shop. The bag is a find from the winter just gone, so it's still relatively new - I'm a big, big fan of berry tones and suede, as well as slouchy bag shapes, so it's pretty much perfect for me!

Because the start of my week was so jam-packed, I now have only one hour of uni left this week (tomorrow morning), which means my weekend officially starts tomorrow afternoon! It's a hard life, eh?

  1. I love how you paired such a strong piece as your jacket with a feminine dress! What a great idea! And I love your snood - the color is gorgeous! Great pop of color. You look so chic!

  2. So awesome that you get off for the week so early. I wish my school system worked like that but I feel like im just being enveloped with more and more even though I'm finishing things in the beginning of the week. Anyway I'm loving this outfit! Definitely a must try for my busier days

  9. Looking good! You can't beat a good old big thick cardi, especially when it's so cold. Love the snood too, I love mine, it's like the best thing ever to help keep me warm, if I could, I would pull it up round my head too haha, but I'd get some funny looks!
