Vintage Faux Fur Coat

Isn't this amazing! I stole it from my Grandma's wardrobe! It must be over at least 20 years old and it has huge shoulder pads, so cool. It is slightly large on me and makes me look huge but I love it! Not worn it out yet.. Not quite sure where to wear it

My Version Of A Haul This Past Week

So here's what I've been doing in my half term.. sitting at home and going out to buy stuff that I'm not even supposed to be buying. I absolutely LOVE spring colours, all the pastel colours just excite me and I want to buy EVERYTHING. If only I had the money eh! Need to start job searching... Someone please employ me! PREFERABLY TOPSHOP/ZARA PLEASE. Um, yeah so [P] is what I've bought and [PL] is what I'll hopefully be purchasing later on that I love! 

I also purchased 2 lovely bras from M&S which I shall not post here haha but I seriously love M&S bras, super comfy whereas I had a little :/ when I bought two from Boux Avenue.. the fitting wasn't great and the underwire dug into my chest and made my chest bleed. Will be taking those to refund. 

Want this but it's £30! I imagined it to be £25 max! Ripoff. [PL]
Boat shoes - River Island -£20 [P]
So it's sitting on my waist.. is it supposed to be this short or am I supposed to pull it down? It looks a bit weird swinging at this length.. bought it anyway to try it out :)
Top- Topshop - £36 [I think.. from the top of my head]
Trousers- Zara- £25.99 [P]
Wasn't sure which colour to buy! Wanted a pair of these for ages but was scared they'd make me look really big as they sit on the hips and most trousers like these have a wide bit at the bottom D; 
Minty trousers with zip detail on back leg - £35.99 [P]
Sky blue/ Mint coloured trousers - ever since I saw mint colours for spring in Zara last year, I fell in love but didn't know what to buy first! Love these trousers, should be wearing these to sixth form.. I'm getting into trousers now because me wearing black skirts all the time just isn't cutting it.
Shorts- Zara - £25.99 [PL]
These shorts are so cute! The colour didn't come up very well but they're a peachy colour. 
Sky blue/ Mint top [I'm on a mint hype] - H&M - £7.99 - SO CHEAP! [P]
Pleated maxi skirt - £32 [P]
Nearly out of day cream so I got this, only wanted the cream and turns out this whole set INCLUDING the moisturiser is CHEAPER than just the one moisturiser! Bargain. £30 [P]
Outfit of the other day [lol]
Opaque footless tights/ stretchy leggings -£9.99 [P]
These are like really thick tights/very thin leggings, super stretchy and opaque. Not tried them on yet but they're just footless tights I suppose! Will be wearing these all the time around the house with a nice pair of socks :)

Kings College London Trip

Amazing day! The best part was going into the medicine museum thing and seeing all the pathology things in glass and preserved, was the most amazing, jaw dropping 10 seconds of my life walking through it! (wasn't supposed to look). It was the Gordon Museum of Pathology and was kindly taken around and given a little chat by the ex vice principal of Kings College! Was such an amazing experience and really learned a lot; me and my friends came out screaming, jumping and hugging each other, seriously!!

Went to the Waterloo campus before the museum and done lab stuff on enzymes.. Didn't understand anything or how to use a bloody pipette! Dumb days.

Micro Haul + Trying On Clothes

The pink blazer! Love at first sight! The back is short and the front is long AND I can wear it with long sleeves! All the blazers I wear to sixth form I roll up my sleeves because they're not the right shape but this blazer was perfection! £90 though so had to slowly but cooly put it back in its place boooo

Bought the collared dress, saw it online an absolutely loved it and saw it today and fell in love! They have a navy colour as well. The only down side is that it doesn't suit big boobs. I still don't know if I can pull it off. It distorts the shape. Plus, some dresses may be a bit long if you're petite like me. I found the S to be shorter than the XS. Should have got a L to make my boobs look normal.

Bought this asymmetrical skirt I've had my eye on since September, wanted one for ages! Finally bought it but I don't know where I can wear it Andrew to pull it off! Tried on like 2 ways and have up 'cause I was making a mess.

Also bought a plain black jersey a line skirt from topshop but it's a bit long for me :( makes me look out of proportion and I have lots of black skirts already! Change it?

Black asymmetrical skirt - Topshop [Goldie] - 45
Peachy/ orange collared dress - Zara - 35.99
Baby pink blazer - Zara - 89.99
