We've finally sorted out the internet at our apartment so I'm back to blogging! I also found a better spot to take my photographs, the previous bedroom ones looked really dull so the hallway lights are much brighter. I'm not sure that I like how shiny they make my face look but we'll work with it!

Today was officially my first day back as a fashion design student and I had a really long practical lesson. I always ignore comfort over practicality hence why my outfit isn't baggy or comfortable! I've always wanted to layer a bralet over a t-shirt but wasn't sure if it would look strange. I decided on this Asos leather bralet layered over a Zara sheer t-shirt as I really loved the contrast between the two fabrics. I think this actually looks really effective but you need to be careful about which shapes and fabrics you layer together. I've kept my look simple with some River Island tube pants which are incredibly flattering and the perfect fit. They're more of a cotton than denim fabric so although they're not very stretchy, they suck you in at all the right places. I'm also wearing my H&M lace-up boots which are some of my all time favourites! I love the monochrome simplicity and the chunky heel makes them easy to walk in during the day. 

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect knee-high boots after returning my H&M pair due to the heel height being too high. I found an amazing Topshop neoprene pair but unfortunately they were £135 which is a little more than I'm willing to pay. Luckily, it's the Trinity Leeds student lock-in tonight and Topshop are offering 20% off. I'm tempted to dash over and see if they have any sizes left, my apartment looks right over the shopping centre so it would be rude not to!
