stripes

 I recently went to a H&M student lock in event at the Brighton store which offered 20% off, and me being me I bought 2 of the most boring pieces of clothing in the store. BUT I don't care cause I really do like them. First one being yes, yet another stripy top! except this one is a little thicker and has a gold zip on the back (trying to defend myself for buying another one) but yeah I really like it and I think it'll look good with my levi shorts when it gets a bit warmer. Another purchase was this black vest top which has a sheer longer back. Tried getting a picture but they didn't come out great, it was only £7.99 as well which is good! thats without discount. I also bought a denim shirt but it was a Medium mens size so I'm taking it back cause it's too big, Hoping to get another one though cause I really want one. And now an outfit with the stripy top
stripy top- H&M 
Levi jacket- no clue
Leggings- H&M
Scarf- Portobello market
Necklace- RubyRaeLove

Now I'm going to defend myself here, I normally steer clear of the whole leggings as trousers type of outfit cause I do really hate the look off see through leggings with short tops but I thought I could make an exception with these ones as they are quite thick type of leggings. I bought them recently in H&M when I was in a 'not being able to afford disco pants' depression. So I thought these could fill my need for a while, a poor girls version of disco pants in some way. Although they are completely different but yeah whatevs. I've been living in them recently they are just so comfy to wear to college. I paired my new stripy top with my denim jacket which I have no idea where it's from cause my Auntie gave it to me as it used to be hers. And my checked scarf from Portobello market which I love and only cost 3 quid. Still loving my little skull necklace from RubyRaeLove. I'm obsessed with it and I wear it almost everyday, I've also gotten really into painting my nails recently cause I've been good and let them grow! these 2 nail varnishes from Revlon are my absolute favourites 

I hope you've all had a great week, I am so so so SO fucking happy it's half term right now! although i do have a crazy amount of portfolio work to do but I'm off to London on Wednesday for a few days with ma good friend Amber who is also a blogger which means it's an opportunity to get some outfit shots done. I'm going on Wednesday and will be back Friday so it's going to be a nice break. I also found out I have a portfolio review for London College of Fashion which I was SO surprised at, I mean it's not an interview but it's a step closer! I'm panicking a bit as it's in 2 weeks and I have no way near finished my portfolio. I'm also up to London again on the 20th for a photo shoot. Times like this I wish I lived there! 
Love, Rose

  4. Those leggings don't look as bad as pants, could probably pass them off as riding pants!! (:

  6. I need to get some thick leggings, mine are a pathetic excuse for leggings and definitely have to be worn with a long top/dress ;-). The student lock in sounds amazing, very jealous, your outfit is lovely too! What course are you looking to do at LFC? What is your portfolio based on? Whoops, sorry for the 21 questions! Xx

    1. I applied for a Fashion Textile course! and they didn't ask for anything specific so I'm just bringing everything I've done in the foundation course which is mostly just textile projects, weave, fashion illustration etc etc

  18. That shirt is so so nice! I'm also obsessed with stripy h&m tops and always on the never ending search for the perfect one, but this looks very well it! Sadly i'm on a no-buying-clothes-for-a-whole-month ban, but i think i can still take a nose in h&m and see if it's there.. O:) how much was it btw? x

  21. loving the stripey top m'dear, I have one just like it, turns out to be an absolute failsafe - especially on days when I'm in a rush.
    Have fun in London! x

  22. haha you can never have enough stripy tops, i love your leggings though! disco pants are awesome but yours are really similar to riding pants so they're lovely. i feel your paint though, leggings shouldn't be a sub to trousers but sometimes it's cool. h&m do great basics. hope you've had a nice time in london :)xxx

  23. Breton stripes are a classic and will never get old, I would fill my wardrobe with them if I could. Great pieces.
