 I think it was the Sunday before the last when I went on a wee adventure.. on our campus cemetery! That I had known nothing about. Now it is easily my favourite place on campus, how could it not? If you know me a little bit, you will know that I love exploring cemeteries and although this one is now just more of an open space, it's brilliant. I'd imagine I would've loved it even more before most of the gravestones were removed. For instance, when my dad went to uni they would've still had a proper cemetery on campus, which I think is pretty neat! I would've been the weirdo hanging around the graves. I have more cemetery pictures, so you'll probably be seeing those soon, too.

When putting together my outfit I had not realized at all how loaded with 90's vibes it was. Long floral skirt, crop top, dark lips, platforms, even the leather jacket I suppose. Actually, even my hair is like that of a 90's grunge boy. Obviously, I've been influenced by Buffy too much; 90's fashion and hanging around graves. I don't carry wooden stakes. Yet. Anyway, I have very much enjoyed plum lips lately. I'm not too sure about the skirt though. I like it, but the length feels just a tad awkward for me. Maybe I'll get used to it after a few wears!

Also, sorry about the terribly out of focus shots of my hands/rings. By the end of my adventure, my hands were getting cold and I was too impatient to care..

And the cemetery is looking amazing, but it must be even better with all of the gravestones indeed!

Amanda said...

Hurray for Buffy references! I love the pairing of something rock with the floral skirt! I think it looks great- 90s inspired without looking like a 90s fancy dress costume. The perfect wearable homage! X

You bring me back good Buffy memories, love your beautifully bohemian outfit, the skirt is so pretty. Thanks for your support over at mine, hope you're having a great week so far!

Marlen said...

i've never heard of a uni having a cemetery, so this is pretty cool! and i think your outfit really works with the backdrop too- it must be those 90's influences, haha. And I love the contrasts in your outfit- edgy and sweet!

So cool that there is a cemetery right on campus. And that skirt is so lovely. I went to primark a couple times when I was in London and it was crazy in there! Haha. Great clothes and prices though. Loving the plum lipstick too.
