Hey guys! So it's been an exciting couple of days. As many of the Brits and Europeans who follow me will know, it was A-Level results day on the 14th of August where thousands of students found out whether they'd got the grades they wanted. For many including myself this meant finding out whether they had got into university or not. I was happy to find out I got the grades for my Multimedia Journalism course so *Mike Wazowski voice* I AM OFFICIALLY A COLLEGE STUDENT. How this relates to an outfit, you may be wondering? Well as I'm a bit too obsessed with coming of age American teen movies, my mental image of university fashion is chic and preppy. In reality it's more Converse and trackie bottoms but I am a dreamer, what can I say. This outfit is what I imagine the typical university student of lore wearing, but with my own twist (shiny).
I've been on the hunt for the perfect white short-sleeved shirt for a while now - something crisp and clean looking but still relaxed - and this Missguided offering does the trick. It's smart looking but still looks good with a casual outfit whereas I find more stiff shirts don't. The cropped length also means it sits nicely over my silver pencil skirt without looking too formal. I decided to keep the colour scheme fairly minimal so stuck with silver and white down to my shoes - and aren't they amazeballs? I've been eyeing up these beauties since the beginning of spring so when I finally managed to nab them in the sale I was beyond ecstatic. They're chunky, silver and work perfectly with this outfit as they're a great mixture of casual yet smart. To add a bit of colour, I went with a red lip and a necklace with a coloured gemstone.
