Back to uni means back to more lectures and indulging in lots more hours at the wonderful library. I shouldn’t complain really, I only have one lecture a week where as more academic courses have 3 a day. But for this creative busy body I just can’t bare sitting in a dark room for an hour with people talking at me and not really to me.
This look is comprised of a new white jumper and new black velvet skirt. It’s fair to say I may have gone over board in the treating myself to lots of bargains over christmas. Randomly, not too far from home, an old village hall was holding a cashmere sale. As you do! I managed to pick up one of the only pieces that isn’t even cashmere, a cotton knit jumper. I’ve had multiple comments that it’s a ‘cricket jumper’. It does have that appearance with a similar knit pattern and its very warm and toasty. Perfect for winter lectures. I’ve tucked it into my new velvet skirt from Matalan. It is a kids age 16 and was £2 in the christmas sale. I also got another grey acid wash skirt in the same order, which was £3. Two fab new skirts for only a fiver, reeeeesult- as Mumma K would say!
With my basic look taking a monochrome pallet, I decided to accessorise by indulging in colour. Bold red lipstick always lifts a black and white look. The lovely silk scarf was a birthday gift from a friend and I hardly whip it out as i don’t want to ever ruin it. It was quite a risky move choosing to wear it in combination with a bold red lippy, stain city could have occurred!
