Tiring of Jeans

I'm in that phase of avoiding jeans: exam season has me craving soft jumpers with leggings and the typically uncomfortable jean material doesn't cut it. I tend to shy away from cigarette style trousers because they're usually extremely unflattering on me in comparison to skinny jeans, this pair from Zara however are the ideal compromise and their fitted style is surprisingly complimentary.
But best of all, they are so comfortable to wear.
The suede cami was bought on the same Zara trip and I can't wait to shop the rest of their collection. Think safari inspired beiges and creams with the stores classic minimal cuts; once again, all hail Zara.

Scottish Beach Dressing

There's sun in my photos, I can't believe it! The weather has been surprisingly great in Edinburgh, however a trip to the beach still needed a warm jacket. I recently posted this new Zara coat and I'm continuing to adjust to the colour: wearing pink clothing still makes me feel like a ten year old. What do you think of it? Pink is definitely out of my comfort zone, particularly because I have blonde ends that exaggerate its girliness...

Aside from sunny but simultaneously cold days by the seaside, I'm now officially on exam leave. I cannot believe how fast second year has flown by, it feels like yesterday I was choosing my courses! So many things have changed since first year though and my attitude towards University is definitely now more positive. I'm thinking of doing a reflections post regarding my thoughts and experiences on further education, if you think that would be interesting/helpful?

Jumpers and Snakeskin Heels

Baggy jumpers and distressed jeans have pretty much been my University outfits all week- minus the heels. It has been hectic with deadlines/ late night society balls recently, I promise I'll be back to normal dressing soon...
On the plus side, my River Island giveaway is still open (see below) and I have some better-dressed posts coming up mid week. X

Waiting for Palm Trees

Currently looking through previous summer blog posts next to a window being battered by rain. 
Please winter, just hurry up and leave. 
This is my first Sunday of work in a while and despite my determination to do something fun, I've spent most of the day googling 'top ten travel destinations for students.' Morocco, Paris and Barcelona are high up on my list- any recommendations?

Aside from this future excitement, I've got an internship! Dates haven't yet been finalised but it's a paid position in a marketing department and I couldn't be more pleased. My University course work is also reaching the final editing stages and then I just have exams to sit in May.
Palm trees and sunny weather will unfortunately have to wait!

Better late than never

coat Zara Sale

 Remember last year when everyone went crazy for pink coats? I've finally caught onto that trend. 
I'm not one for light or pastel colours because my blonde dip dye tends to clash, but this dusted pink and Mongolian fur coat is the perfect alternative. 

Aside from raking through the last rails of the Zara sale, I've been frantically applying for summer internships and placements. There is unfortunately still no news in that department but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. On a much more exciting note, I finally bought a ticket to the end of year Business Ball: dress shopping, here I come! Any store recommendations would be appreciated, I'm looking toward the likes of BCBG and cautiously avoiding the 16-year-old-looking prom dress options.
