Oh it’s a beautiful day! When the sun shines everything seems so much better, doesn’t it? Despite the fact its crunch time at uni and everything is up in the air at minute, I’ve come over with a sense of relaxation, confidence and peace. Of course, this is all false, the clouds will come and I’ll realise I need to get my ass in the library! But for now, I’m just going to sun it up.
H&M is so lovely at the moment! I’ve been in there 3 times in 1 week (sad, I know) but it gets worse, I shopped, I returned, I window shopped, I window shopped, I window shopped and then the penny dropped that I should go home and forget about the things I can’t afford at the minute.
I bought, returned and now lusting over these,
Hot pink dress £29.99
Light wash pastel pink skinny stretch trousers £24.99
Chiffon crisp white shirt £29.99
They’re all lovely and such good quality for the price! I’ve always been a fan of H&M and at the minute they are making it very difficult to say no. But I somehow gathered the will power to return, reason being:
When I look at them like this, there is no competition at all. Despite loving fashion and it being a substantial part of my life, it is soon turning around. I’m still always wanting to shop, thinking of items to put together, dressing like a mad woman, getting it wrong and then getting it right. Perving on the latest lines, collaborations, well dressed people and one day wanting to work within fashion somehow . But lately I’m having this battle of the day dreams. Before they were filled with the above, but now they are filled with travelling, sightseeing, people meeting, getting on the wrong bus, sleeping in a super cute yet hideously dirty and dangerous hostel. Obviously, all of this is while wearing my fave cotton skirt and tee! But the days of going rough, make-up less, heelless and generally without a nice clean, cute shirt or floral and flouncy vintage dress are quickly becoming desirable.
Am I having a quarter life crisis? Or have I finally realised that there’s more to life than wearing the latest fashion? Hmm. I don’t know, I think if I travelling go, I’ll either come back craving to top up my wardrobe, get a shower and have a haircut. Or I’ll come back with dreadlocks and dare I say, wearing linen shorts.
Obviously I’m joking, one of the main reasons I want to go travelling is because I want to see uni out with a bang. Also, this summer is pretty much regarded as the last one, as after this I’ll be getting 5 weeks holiday a year like everyone else. And trust me, after having around 7 months in holidays through a uni year, 5 weeks sounds like unfair hell!
Before I get my knickers in an even bigger twist, I’m going to go and enjoy the British sun while I can!
Happy Wednesday x
