give me shelter or show me heart

This week has been absolutely mental. I've stayed back for a total of seven hours at school as my coursework deadline approaches for Textiles. So other than that being pretty life-consuming at the moment, I've also been loving the newly-found evening sunlight. I cannot wait for the clocks to change as I simply adore having brighter days.

So this is my new velvet shirt - and such a bargain it was at £3. It was bigger than I expected, with the sleeves quite wide, but it has a nice effect when worn. The colour is definitely striking for me, considering I usually opt for black, grey, navy or plum. The collar is pretty unusual also - it doesn't sit well when tucked down, so I wore it up like a nehru collar. My school shirt from when I lived in India had the nehru style of collar too, which makes sense as it's traditionally worn in China and India. I like bringing that small slice of culture back home with me in London.

I've decided that this weekend I'm going to give in to my urges and buy this pair of Topshop Joni jeans. Everyone is raving about their perfection and after trying them on last week I am totally convinced. For the first time ever they actually fit, usually Topshop jeans gape at the back which is never ideal. I love high waisted clothing also so we're onto a winner. Expect coverage / fantasies soon.

How was your week?



  1. I love high waisted clothing too, I hope they're nice! And I totally agree with needing longer days, especially with school it's horrible to get home only to be greeted with darkness...xx

  2. Love this blouse, such a gorgeous colour! x

  3. your velvet blouse is so so gorgeous-loving your whole outfit and I love the colour as well!

    I have a new post up on my blog and would love to hear your thoughts!
