Sixth Form Haul

Sunday 14 September 2014

That time of year has come round once again. Back to school. Only this time it's a completely different experience for me as I'm starting sixth form. Not only does this mean much harder work, but I can finally wear my own clothes! So I brought a some essentials to get me through the first few weeks.

 One of my favourite purchases was this striped collar top from Topshop with ribbon detail above a keyhole cut out on the back of the top. It has a small pocket on the left. I love wearing this top with a pair of black jeans. (£20)

The next item I brought was a textured, oversized cream top. It has a slight split hem, making the back a little bit longer. Most of the tops I purchased were plain tops because I was really lacking in simple tops that I could just throw on with a pair of jeans. I wasn't exactly planning on arriving at sixth form over dressed. Forever 21. 

I got this red checked shirt from Forever 21. Shirts like this are perfect to wear with the plain tops I brought and it goes really well with my white jeans. I think I paid £15.

This shirt or 'flannel', is also from Forever 21. It's oversized and fits perfectly. I love how the sleeves are so long, it's so comfortable. 

This thin striped top is slightly cropped and has a small pocket detail. I was looking for a top with this pattern and when I finally found it I picked up my size without hesitation. I think it'd look really nice with a pair of high waisted jeans, which I don't have. It's on the list.

Back to Topshop, I purchased two racer back styled vest tops. One in black and one in grey. The material is sheer but not see-through. The fabric is really soft and I plan on buying the white one too. £8.

I've never owned a pair of joggers and I thought it's about time I did. I'm so glad I decided to get them because they're the most comfortable bottoms I own. They were only £11 in Forever 21! 

In sheer panic that I didn't have a school bag, I brought a small satchel from Primark for the first few days which I didn't actually end up using however I do plan to do so. 

My favourite item was definitely my boyfriend style coat. I got this from Bank, it's by Blonde & Blonde. £50. 

These necklaces are all from Forever 21, the store had so much nice jewellery and it was all priced reasonably.

There are a few other bits I didn't take closer pictures of and write about because they're in the wash and I feel really impatient about uploading my first post... Thank you for reading :)
