Need More Sleep

Need more sleep. This t-shirt tells the story of my life and probably yours too. If you have ever wondered what I wear in my downtime - this is it. I adore slouchy over-sized tees paired with lace shorts and comfy socks. So damn comfortable. I can't wait for the warmer weather when I can transfer this outfit to the outside. Until then I'm quite content wearing this at home :) 

I'm currently reading 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami - I have heard great things about the books. I read Book 1 last year and really enjoyed it, so can't wait to finish it! I am trying to read more, I use to be an avid reader as a teenager but lately have been so lax with it. Reading more is definitely something I want to improve on this year :)

Catch up on my latest video below! Happy weekend everyone!

Oh Wonder

This is my grown up bag and my growed up shoes. Not that my other stuff isn't grown up - just the bag and shoes to me feel grown up. I'm nearly 24 and I still don't consider myself as a grown up. That's probably because the people I view as grown up have lost their sense of wonder, imagination and excitement. I don't want to ever lose those things, so I have a hard time viewing myself as such. My vision of being grown up is very different, I think it is something you accomplish because you wondered, imagined and was excited about something or other. One day I'll get there but right now I'm happy with not being quite grown up. 

As usual I'm babbling, back to the outfit. My best friend, Maya, finally came back from her Christmas travels and she brought me back the best ring. The best. Moons, stars and silver are what I mainly look for in jewellery and she managed to find it all combined into one :):) It is so pretty!! Thank you!!

Everything else I'm wearing I got in the sale. Sales are the best and also the worst. Only the worst because I bought so much. Though some of it is justified. I needed a sturdy bag for all my uni stuff and just everyday general life - and this bag works wonders. It also feels like a proper bag, I normally carry everything around in a cotton tote bag, so this is a big step up! Ah, only one of the items was justified. Though the jumper and jumpsuit were absolute bargains, so how could I not resist?! 

I know some of you are probably looking at my outfit and thinking it is way too cold for this time of the year. But in my defense, the jumper is heat tech and it is seriously the warmest thing. I pretty much got away with not wearing a coat all day when I wore this out! The shoes I have no defense for, I just wanted to wear them. My feet were cold.

I filmed an OOTD video with this outfit which should be going up over the weekend, so if you want to see it in motion, keep an eye out for that over on my youtube :)

Park Street Dive

It's not really warm enough to wear this outfit like this currently - but as you know I don't pay attention to how warm it is. Which is probably why I'm in bed sniffling into tissues and coughing my lungs out. A lesson to those of you who are like me. I kid. I wish I was sick due to the cold weather but the truth is, I have been so run down lately. I think I have now been sick for a whole month - thank you body very much. If anyone has any sort of remedy for the common cold that maybe I haven't tried, I would love to hear it!

Back to the outfit - Continuing my love with Zara's sale, I went back. I couldn't help myself. This top was only £3.99, how could I resist?? A nice comfy top for easy pairings, like this skirt. I also got this in the sale :) I love the silhouette the skirt gives me, it is super fitted and has a lovely small slit at the back. However, it may be a tad too fitting, where it sits at the knees makes it hard to walk not unlike a penguin. I've only worn it a few times, so hopefully it will have more leeway soon. If not, walking like a penguin is quite fitting for this time of the year!

I recently discovered a band called Park Street Dive and have been listening to them non-stop! If you haven't heard of them, definitely check them out. They play the sort of music that makes you want to dance silly, wish for Summer days and sing a long as hard as you can :) The lead singer also dresses so well!

Here's my favourite song of theirs
