Outfit Post

Crop Top - Topshop
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Ebay
Bag - Topshop
Cuff Bracelet - Regal Rose
Necklace - Urban Outfitters

Here is what i wore to go out in Monday night to Corporation (a club in Sheffield). I bought the top as a last minute panic buy as it was an unplanned night out but i think it worked out well! I love the hippy tie dye style at the moment and can see my self wearing this top for festivals this summer.

I probably looked too dressy for the place we went to as it is quite grungy and studenty; but i love getting dressed up too much and didn't want to waste the opportunity seen as i don't get out as often as i'd like to these days!

City Travels: Cambridge

I went to Cambridgeshire at the weekend to visit my boyfriend, and usually most times i go down we visit the city of Cambridge. I have a been quite a few times now, and just wanted to share some pictures so you can see why i love it so much!

The city has your usual highstreet haunts such as Topshop, New Look, John Lewis etc, but the whole city is built around the old universities and colleges of Cambridge which are seriously like walking around Hogwarts! As well as cobbled streets, a huge market and old buildings, there is also the river that runs through the city where you can go punting and get to see the sights of the city from the river.

I have yet to do this, so it is definitely on my to do list this summer! Next time i go down i shall take pictures of the grounds of the universities and colleges too, as they are so historic and look just like Hogwarts.

I hope everyone has had a nice weekend!

90's Revival: The Backpack

Clueless: Cher's silver backpack wouldn't look out of place in Topshop right now!

Backpack - Topshop
Mint Green Top - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop
Loafers - Topshop
Blazer - Topshop
Necklace - Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses - Looky Looky man in Ibiza
Rings - H&M/Topshop

If you grew up in the 90's then you must have seen the movie Clueless, if you haven't then i suggest you watch it as it is amazing! The words i would use to describe the fashion in the movie now would be "interesting" and "OTT". However, it is safe to say a 90's revival has hit the catwalks and the highstreet this year. One of the key fashion pieces that featured in Clueless in 1995 that has made its way to 2012, is the backpack!

The backpack i fell in love with from Topshop is my style for sure; leather, simple shape and versatile. I shouldn't have really bought it as i am meant to be saving (i see it as an investment!) but with it being an off white colour i know i will wear it everyday with everything, and i really think it will be so handy for V Festival.

I have already worn it everyday since purchasing it, and can even fit my travel size magazines in it, score! I love how fashion always comes back around when you least expect it, which is why i try to hold on to things for as long as possible. (Usually until my wardrobe doors won't close anymore).

What do you think of the backpack? 

Any comments are hugely appreciated!
