Just Do It

Nike Roshe Run - ASOS

I have hopped on the bandwagon! Everyone seems to have a pair of these at the moment and although I have never been a trainer type of girl with my new gym addiction and the fact my obsession with monochrome is apparently never going away, I brought some! The sizing was so weird though, I'm ALWAYS a size 6, but I had to get a size 5 as the others looked like flippers.

Right now my life is moving a mile a minute, with Final Major Project and Dissertation in the last months of my uni life counting as 3 quarters of my degree. Anyone thinking of starting your own fashion magazine, don't. It is stressful! Don't get me wrong I love studying Fashion Design/Communication but am counting down the days until I leave uni and am faced with the real world adventures!

Acne Studios Obsession

'Acne' Jumper - 1, 2, 3

Acne is my all time favourite brand but I have a confession, I am a student, and therefore on a budget, so these are fakes! I know there is a huge difference between an imitation and a exact copy, so I feel a little bad, but they are a bargain and I do have a real Acne shirt I live in. 

These are honest the comfiest jumpers ever, they are the most amazing oversized fit and just go with everything, highly recommend getting one or all three! I would've taken better pictures, but I could see my neighbour watching me take these through the window and I was in my pants! I live in a very nosey place.

Now time to catch up on some LFW

Pinky and the PVC

Jumper - H&M
Skirt - Missguided
Socks - Topshop
Shoes - SammyDress

This is technically my second outfit post, and it is in the same location and style as my last one so apparently I have a theme. I literally picked up this jumper yesterday, as an impulsive purchase and I love it, it is some comfortable, and pink which my wardrobes been craving this season and the sleeves are a good length (which I struggle with being 5'10). Only issue is that if I am faced with an over whelming urge to do a mexican wave or, 'wave my hands in the air like I just don't care' there will be a nip slip situation. 

I've had this skirt for forever now, and I just keep on finding more and more things it goes with. I'm a little bit tired of leather atm, everyone brought a leather mini recently so I have tried to refrain, and PVC is a great alternative.

I won't bore you with a long paragraph about these shoes, because they speak for themselves, you will either love them or hate them, but they are honestly the best Stella McCartney replica I have seen!

Vintage winter

Jumper - Cow Vintage 

This is honestly the prettiest jumper I have ever laid eyes on. Vintage jumpers are always so much cooler then high street replicas, you get a better quality for your money and they always have amazing patterns! Cow Vintage is one of my favourites here in Birmingham, though I recenetly visited nottingham for the first time (to see Frank Turner live for the 4th time <3) and decided that my next shopping trip is going to have to be there! So many cute vintage shops and tea rooms, Anyone who loves the whole vintage scene defiantly has to visit the White Rabbit Teahouse.

I have an obsession with ugly shoes

Shoes - Sammy Dress

I literally seem to love any shoe that most people would class as ugly. It's becoming a real problem. My step mum actually referred to my shoes as orthopaedic the other day. I decided I need these as they embody my three favourite things; chunky heels, monochrome, and metallic fabric. 

Just to add, I Was looking through ASOS magazine the other day and it said that three of the things you should be stocking up on for summer, were white soles, sporty items and hologram. So I call Bingo!

Yeah, I work out

Me after dying in a workout
Pink/Grey Top  - Primark
Leggings - Nike
White/Black Top - Addidas
Neon Yellow Top - Nike
Socks - Primark
Sweat Cloth - Primark

Okay, you don't know me but if you did you would understand that I should be a big fat fatty, making my way around town by rolling from place to place. I live on a diet of junk food and carbs, the last time I had a piece of fruit was some point last year (other then the optimistic packet of apples I brought in the new year). As for excise, I consider walking up the stairs a work out, and had a sick note for every high school P.E. lesson I ever had. So it may surprise that at the start of January me and my housemate got drunk and decided to join a gym and have stayed true to our word since. 

The attraction is that 1) I would really love some abs, 2) The gym outfits are pretty cute, 3) My other housemates have no idea, we do it in secret

It's honestly not that much of a hell hole as I would of thought, got a good routine going, hitting the gym about 3 times a week for at least an hour and half each time. The creatively named The Gym has great equipment and classes, and even a virtual classroom, that streams those cheesey workout videos you have attempted alone in your room, but with space and equipment and a better environment so you actually do them and feel it afterwards.

Gym Wishlist

I need some real trainers, because converse just dont cut it, plus when I start dropping into conversation that I work out (Makes me laugh every time) I need the footwear to back it up.
