OOTD: Layering Love Affair

Returning to uni has meant a lot of things have changed recently, I’m getting a little bit less sleep, having to remember to eat three meals a day, and, unfortunately, it has also meant an unwelcome pause from any blogging activities as I attempt to readjust to uni life. Nevertheless, after being reunited with my favourite photographer pal (shoutout to Ellie) I finally managed to get some photos done for a post I’ve had in the works for a while.

Layering can be tricky, but I’ve learnt that the key is not to overthink. Layered over a t shirt or even a polo neck, you can wear your favourite summer tops right into winter. This satin organza top from New Look has been one of my favourite ‘night out’ pieces recently, I have the matching skirt, choker and shoes! So, I thought, why not find a way to style it for daywear? This H&M T-shirt is one of my favourite tops for layering, the band tee style can make anything look more casual and edgy, it’s perfect paired with the girly style of the top. Slouchy boyfriend style jeans were the perfect match for the T-shirt, and I finished off the look with my favourite pair of Puma trainers.

OOTD: An Evening in Bristol

Another summer mini break crossed off the list, this time it was a trip to Bristol to see family, and it literally lasted less than 24 hours…

We stayed at the Premier Inn, which despite its quite shocking lack of biscuits in the room, provided a very decent breakfast buffet and had a Starbucks, this, of course, made for a happy Phoeb. We went to Valentino’s in Bristol and had a lovely big family meal, my family don’t come together all too often, so when we do it’s really nice!

For my outfit I went for this off the shoulder shirt from New Look which I feel like I’ve seen in just about every fashion magazine this year, and my leather trousers from Cheap Monday which I got in the sale for £20. I have to admit I made a complete fashion no-no with this outfit by mixing silver and gold, I know, shock horror. Usually my overpacking would’ve saved me from such an issue, assuring that I would’ve had a bag with silver hardware and some silver jewellery to go with my shoes, but I tried so hard not to overpack for this trip! Hence, why I have gold necklaces on with silver shoes, my idea of a nightmare! Hopefully you don’t hate me as much as I hate myself…
