Jumper - Sister's old
Skirt - Self-made
Earrings - Gift from the sister

Isn't this just the easiest thing to wear in winter; jumper and a skirt. As my second semester of the year and last one of life as an undergraduate (fingers crossed!) actually has early mornings, I feel like this will be the kind of boring little outfit everyone will come to see me in. When you study history, 9/10am mornings are quite rare and I've become used to a routine where I might have to be at uni only around 5pm. Still not complaining about these oh-so-very early mornings though, as I genuinely don't have more than 3-4 contact hours per week. So little yet I always find myself doing my reading only the day or night before. So much reading, so little time. Seems like this became a wee post about uni, didn't mean for that to happen. But it's the only thing going on in my life right now and I might as well let you know how uninteresting it is.

P.S. I made the blog pictures bigger, so can you let me know if you think they look alright to you, if they take longer to load or anything? Or if it's even a noticeable change. Much appreciated, you guys!

I really like this outfit - very cozy and snug for those winter days! Loving your sisters old jumper - and your eyebrows are gorgeous!! :)

I think the photos are stunning, I prefer bigger photos and personally it didn't take long to load at all. Showed up straight away (and I have an awful internet connection!!)


Dainté said...

I also love wearing big chunky jumpers and leggings in Winter! Although I am admittedly not much of a skirt person- knowing me it would just fly up in the wind and embarrass the hell out of me anyway!!! :)

But you look amazing and so cute!! xxxxxx

Marlen said...

I personally like bigger blog pictures, so these work for me :) Also, yaaay for the last semester!! Oh you must be so excited. Are you planning to go further or are you done with school? I personally couldnt bare the thought of grad school, much to my mom's dismay haha

Amy - thank you, pet! good to know! :-) xx

Jade Wright - ah, thank you so much, sweetie! and eyebrow compliments are always so welcome, haha! that's so nice to hear as well, i prefer bigger photos too and don't know why it took me so long to change the size of these, haha:-) xx

Dainté - thank you, girl! good good, seems like the photos are working just fine then! x

Mystery Blogger - a good jumper + anything is the perfect winter attire:-) and hahaha, that does happen to me from time to time.. although this skirt is nicely enough structured that it's impposibble for it to fly up! thank you, chick! xxx

Krysten Quiles - why, thank you, dear! i do wish i wore it more often but i always seem to forget about it! xx

Marlen - good to hear, doll! i'm both excited and terrified about not knowing what i'll do next, haha.. i'm not going to continue studying straight away, but trying to find a job that i'd like to do, ha! but i think i'd like to go back and do a master's or a phd at some point when i can afford it and if i still want to do so later! xx

Silvia Negretti - thank you, hon! xxx

Ellie Burns - ah, glad you like it, gal! i'm sure you could do it if you just give it a try, haha! x
