The freedom of freshers week is over (and I'll be making a post about that later!), and today was, for me at least, the first day back in lectures. I always find myself wanting to dress up for lectures - I don't really know anyone, and I figure if people are going to know of me as anything I'd rather it be 'that girl who is always well dressed' than 'that girl who doesn't know anyone'!

today I just went for a very alliterative casual, comfy and cosy outfit - a big slouchy cardigan and scarf, some black tights, and a nice skirt and top combo. I actually picked up this top in 2006, when I was 14 and tiny enough for it to work as a dress! It's been hiding in the attic for a few years, and I stumbled across it a few weeks ago and thought 'no, there is definitely something I can do with this!'
the cardigan is a large men's cardigan that makes me feel safe and snuggly, and I picked it up in the best organised charity shop I've ever seen - Cancer Research UK's Monmouth branch - for £4.50! I will admit that I told my mum I stole it from my boyfriend when she questioned me about it, though! The shoes are the warmest, most gorgeous wedges I've ever seen, and they were less than £30 from new look; I think I've worn them every night I've been out since I bought them! I can't normally walk in heels, but wedges are pretty easy to get the hang of, and I'm a bit of an addict.
I also took some photos of my gorgeous friend Cat, which you can check out on her blog! Here's a teaser of those:
that's all I've got for you today, lovelies! Are any of you going back to school this week? What sort of styles are you wearing for lectures?
ps - I'm looking for more blogs to follow, so please feel free to link to your blogs in the comments!
