Back to uni: chilled vibes only please


If you're going back to uni, work or whatever you always put in way more effort than you need to because you set yourself up to think; 'I'm going to make this much effort everyday and really try' then by week two your rolling in, just making it on time in the same clothes as yesterday. We've all been there- don't deny it.  So with that in mind I thought to myself to start of keeping it casual but obviously wanted to wear everything new I bought over the ridiculously long break I had off for summer. This wasn't going to work so I went with weather depending choices and kept it very chilled vibes not but not too chilled I look like I rolled out of bed. But I still wanted to look like I rolled out and just happened to look like this: oopsy (but not really oopsy, really an hour of getting ready).

As a three year long wait to find boyfriend jeans that actually fit me properly I had to wear these Topshop ones I bought a few weeks ago. I LOVE THEM. They're so so comfy and still acceptable to wear in this weird between summer and autumn period. As a petite 5"1 gal I find it hard to find jeans that fit me anyway to finding loose fit boyfriend jeans that don't make me look like an apple and still keep their shape to my small frame these are perfect. I also used to be a skinny jeans/trouser girl through and through but I always tried to find loose comfy jeans and please please if you're in the same boat keep looking and trying because there is a pair for you out there, I promise!

My jumper is by American Eagle my fave green and although it's knitted it's not a heavy close knit so was perfect to wear with nothing underneath without fear of getting bit too hot or cold. The crew neck line is ideal for me when I wear my hair a bit wavy and down because it balances me out. I wore the jumper pulled back a bit because I love a cheeky low back and preferred it being a bit shorter at the front because I've got an hourglass figure so anything that can show my waist off is ideal. Rolling the sleeves up is a must with every jumper I own because i'm petite. However, if my jeans weren't ripped I would've rolled them up more to just below my elbow to enhance my frame. By doing this you draw attention to your waist. Even though the jumper is a bit baggy it still holds it shape well because it's knitted so it will look good! Because my jeans are ripped, there's no need because it would be too much skin on show and i've pulled the jumper back.


The shoes are also Topshop and are my current obsession. I love leopard print and sometimes I have the fear I wear too much it looks tacky but these Birkenstock styled sandals are ideal for these weird cloudy but still warm days. Because i've got a rip in my jeans and a semi-heavy knitted jumper its okay to wear a sandal that shows bit of skin off. If my foot was totally covered I would look stumpy. My legs are short and with baggy jeans I have to be careful not to look drowned in denim. Showing off a bit of foot and ankle is perfect. If you wanted to wear trainers or a loafer for example that covers your foot more, try to roll the jeans up another roll and roll the jumper arms up another so its mid-arm length. This will balance out the looseness of the jeans to ensure you don't look swamped in a baggy jumper and loose jeans.

It all comes together with my staple vintage Levi oversized denim jacket. If you don't own a sightly oversized denim jacket you need one if your life. Believe me. Its very loose and long but looks okay because of my height and with a sandal I won't look completely covered in fabric. I've got my trustee Fjallraven backpack, rose gold hoops and Urban Outfitters round sunglasses that I wear just about everyday because I love them so much.
