After 2 days of endless rain and grey skies, i’m already dying to go back to the sandy beaches and sunny skies in Egypt! The weather here is so depressing, I only wish I was back on a sun lounger gazing up at the blue skies behind my magazines and sunglasses. Before I left, I bought a baseball t-shirt from Primark for only £6. I wasn’t totally sure about it, first of all it was a size too big and I also thought it wasn’t a style I’d normally go with. Anyway, i’ve actually found it a great wardrobe addition- I wore it for the flight and it was ideal for the beach and pool to slip over a bikini Each night at the hotel we were staying at, one of the gardeners walked up the path outside our room with a machine which let out steam which made it impossible to see anything for a few seconds. (I think it may have been poisonous to mosquitoes?). My friend and i found this way too exciting but rushed out anyway and took a few snaps before heading out to dinner. I happened to be wearing my new baseball t-shirt on this occasion I wore my chunky sandals from boohoo.com with black frilly socks (topshop), and my last blog post also features the Lola Chunky Open Fisherman Flats. t-shirt: primark, £6 | sunglasses: camden, £5 | shorts: h&m, £15 | shoes: boohoo.com, £25 |
On Saturday, my order from Boohoo arrived, in which I ordered 3 pairs of shoes. I opted for the Lola Chunky Open Fisherman Flat’s for £25 from Boohoo.
These photos were taken from Castle Hill, in Cambridge, from which you can see Cambridge’s skyline, as well as seeing all the way out to the hill at Gog Magogs. I was suprised by the view and wondered why I’d never been there before! I can imagine it’s a great place in summer.
My new shoes from Boohoo can change an outfit from boring to interesting easily, especially by pairing with some of the cute frilly socks from Topshop. Topshop have so many different colours, as well as River Island, and also Primark (only £1.50 there).
I can’t wait to pair my new shoes with my fur coat for a great statement outfit
Jeans: Topshop £36
Frilly socks: Topshop £3.50
Thank you zoe for taking the photos xx
It’s been so long since I last blogged! Since then, its dropped to unbearable freezing temperatures and I’ve accumulated various items of clothing into my wardrobe!
Today I went shopping to try and find a really warm winter coat, kind of like a parka. Unfortunately, I didn’t find one but I didn’t leave Cambridge empty handed! I bought these gorgeous Topshop Chelsea Boots, which I had been wanting for like the past year. They were £45, and Topshop allows student discount so they were only £41.50. I was a bit reluctant about buying them because of the prize, but after wearing them just one day, I’m so glad I did! It seems they’re going to be especially useful over winter, as my feet always go ice cold.
The only thing is, is they seem to crease and mark easily. but I thought they’re there to be worn and used!
I paired my new boots with a grey skater dress, a black bag, wool tights, and a black and white jumper.
Bag – H&M – £14.99
Skater Dress – Primark – £5
Jumper – Boohoo – £12
Boots – Topshop – £45
Another thing I’ve bought recently is the black bag from H&M which I use for college. It has both a small strap and a shoulder strap, and also fits my A3 art book in. …And for just £14.99, it’s so worth it!
My nails are black using Barry M’s Jelly Nail Varnish (£3.99)
On Monday it was absolutely boiling, and Zoe (fashion blogger for runway) and I decided to wander through fields on a bit of a walk, and of course we both took the opportunity to share our summer outfits.
My 2 top buys this week both came from Primark, and at such a great price. The crop top was only £2.50 which is an absolute bargain, and I also bought these necklaces which came in a three pack:
Be sure to follow and leave a comment, and I would also love it if you checked out my instagram account: @cambridgeblogger
Zoe’s outfit can be found over at her blog!
These H&M shorts are one of the best things I have ever bought, they are so useful, especially in the hotter weather when you want to wear something light. And only £14.99!
^^Hairs getting longer and blonder woooohoo
Feel free to comment with your blog links too as I’d love to be reading more! x
i got back from turkey yesterday with my mum and my best friend and we had the most amazing time. We booked it 2 days before so it was quite spontaneous, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, the hotel was amazing and i just wish i could be back there now! it was so hot that denim shorts, crop tops and basically everything else i brought with me were off the menu. Instead my daily outfit was a change between bikinis and my straw hat (new look).
We barely saw anything of Turkey’s culture, in fact the only time we left the hotel was at the end of the holiday when our coach picked us up. The hotel had everything we needed and it was so nice just to relax after GCSEs and be by and in the pool! All we did was eat, sleep and relax 24/7, which could be boring for some people but was perff for me!
enjoy the sunnyyy weather people x
