I'm all settled in at my new pad in Leeds and it feels so good to be back! It's weird to think I haven't been a student for 18 months and now I'm pretty scared about the massive workload which lies ahead. I attended my induction day today so tonight involves lots of brainstorming and sketching for the start of my projects next week. Typically, our new internet router won't work so I've had to pay £4 using the BT Fon thing, absolute liberty! Oh well, that's blogging dedication for you! 

I debated about buying this Topshop polo neck top for so many weeks and finally purchased it yesterday. I'm not a huge fan of polo necks as I find they make my face look even rounder but there was something about this top I really liked. I could never try it on in the shops as I knew I'd get it covered in make-up and feel so guilty! Luckily, it fits like a glove and doesn't have a massive orange mark around the necklace. I love the woven texture of the fabric, it's not too visible in the photos are my lighting isn't great but you can kinda see it close up. I've kept it simple and paired it with my favourite Topshop ripped jeans and some chunky boots. I think this is a great outfit for during the day as it looks smart and chic but still maintains that casual feel which is suitable for uni. However, I doubt I'll be keeping up appearances for much longer when I'm struggling with all my portfolios and design tools!
