Wishing...

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post. I'll ask one of my friends to take some outfit photos for me soon. As for the suggestion of setting up a tripod and taking them myself, my room at halls is nowhere near big enough for that. Honestly, I have less than 2 square metres of floor space. Granted my second clothes rail takes up a lot of space but the amount of hanging space they gave me was ludicrous - although I suppose I probably have more clothes than the average occupant... Anyway, since the unfortunate incident when I attempted to do yoga in my room and ended up with quite a few injuries, I've resolved only to sleep and read in my room - it really wasn't designed for anything more strenuous.

But I figured that if I couldn't post the outfits I've been wearing, I could always post the ones I've been thinking about wearing. Most of which I lack both the funds and the climate to actually wear.

bretonstripes
Midi skirt: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Shirt: Acne, Brogues: Topshop, Bowler hat: H&M, Bag: H&M, Belt: Topshop, Necklace: House of Harlow.

I really feel like breaking out my chino shorts now that it almost feels like spring. And by 'feel', I mean I'm imagining that it's nearly spring. It's currently sleeting in Manchester.
midiskirts1
Pyjama shirt: Olatz, Shorts: Subtitled, Slipper shoes: French Sole, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Belt: Miss Selfridge.

You know what I said about not wearing heels? I'd much rather wear slippers on a night out. I'm still searching for the perfect silk pyjama shirt too to complete the 'ready for bed' look.
trenchcoat
Trench coat: A.P.C., Lace t shirt: Oasis, Corduroy shorts: Only Limitless, Fedora: Topshop, Boots: Zara, Socks: Topshop, Necklaces: Hive & Honey

I tried to wear my trench coat a few days ago but I've come to the conclusion that it's no where near warm enough to leave the wool coats behind yet. So this is me living vicariously through making collages. leatherskirt
Tweed blazer: Jigsaw, Silk shirt: Jigsaw, Leather skirt: A.L.C, Loafers: Aldo, Bag: Balenciaga. 

That Jigsaw tweed blazer has played on my mind since I first saw it about 10 months ago. It recently went into their sale but it's still way out of my student budget... pretty though. I'm also really craving a leather skirt but I think this a-line one is much more interesting than your usual pencil or bodycon skirt.
