Big apologies for not posting in over a week! My laptop charger got blown out by a dodgy extension socket thing in the mothers room, so I'm still waiting for a new one to arrive. I'm posting this from the main house computer, which I absolutely hate, but it must be done!

I've been home ill for the last few days, which is good because these days I'm so fed up of school, and simply cant be arsed, but bad because of all the work I'm gonna need to catch up on. Plus, tomorrow is result's day from the AS exams I did in January, so I'm not looking forward to seeing a big fat FAIL on the paper :( To make things worse, tomorrow is also the 4 year anniversary of my friends death (read about it here), so everyone's gonna be a bit bummed out :(

but on a lighter note, here's what I wore to sixth form on Monday. I'm not gonna do regular sixth form outfit posts, kuz I tend to wear the same thing, just swapping blazers & shirts.

[Blazer - H&M; Shirt -; Skirt - from the mother]
Here's a closeup of the shirt. It's such a beautiful shirt, floral design with pearl buttons. The only flaw is that it's not very well made - the button holes weren't closed up properly, so all the silky material is loose, causing the buttons to become stuck in them, I've lost so many buttons on it :(

My skirt is a mini pleated denim skirt that the mother bought for me a while ago. I'm not sure if it was designed to be high waisted, but that's the only way I can wear it, plus I think it looks so much better :)
And to finish the outfit out, I teamed it with my Vans that I got from Macy's in New York back in the summer of 2007. I love these shoes so much, but they have seen better days! I plan on keeping them until they actually fall apart (getting close to that time!)

That's all for now, I'll try to do a post summing up my favourite picks from all the Fashion Weeks (including Kate Moss & the cigarette!) some time this week!

pinch, punch, first day of the month

hurrah it's March! I hope you've all had a good first day of the month, and you're not sore from pinches & punches, or slaps & kicks! (Yes I'm 16, and yes me & my friends still do the whole 'pinch, punch, first day of the month' and 'slap, quick, for being so quick' :p)

just a quick outfit outfit post from what i wore to my sixth form yesterday. the dress code for my sixth form is supposed to be smart - matching blazer & skirt/trousers and a sensible shirt, but no-one really sticks to that. I wore my H&M blazer that I wear pretty much everyday, just because it's so comfortable and easy to put on ti smarten up any casual top. The plaid shirt i bought on Saturday from New Look, and I love it! I'm a sucker for a decent checked/plaid shirt, and I couldn't resist getting this for a measly £5 :') It's really long though, I had to make the shirt a bit baggy over my skirt, otherwise it would be hanging out from the bottom of my skirt! I might try it out over some leggings next time I wear it :)

[Blazer - H&M; Plaid Shirt - New Look; Skirt - Primark; Brogues - New Look; Necklace - Primark?]

I got this skirt back in like 2008 or so when I needed to quickly buy a skirt for a party, and (similar to the blazer), it's one of the staple items of my sixth form 'uniform'. It has a zip that runs all down the front of the skirt (which can be pulled down, as i have experienced from my lovely friends), but I wear it back to front so that the zip is at the back, simply because the zip causes a weird bulge to appear at the front....

My brogues are also from New Look, and have lasted me surprisingly long, considering how much I wear them! They are lovely and very practical, I would recommend these pair if you haven't got some!

That's all for today, off to watch Cougar Town (which is absolutely AMAZING) and attempt to do my French work :)
Good day to you all!
