Uni Outfit of the Day

Hello strangers. It's been a while for me, AWOL for two weeks! Tut tut... I do apologise but I've been bogged down with revision, coursework and sending out my C.V. Im currently employed as a student and my contract is up at the end of August along with my degree so I'll be qualified and jobless as it were :-(. So yeah I've been frantically putting my C.V together and writing letters to potential employers about how wonderful I am! But with that in mind I need to finish my course which has gone oh so wonderfully to plan today as I've missed my bloody train to uni! Argh! I had a while until the next train so thought I'd film a super quick OOTD and a blogpost which I'm editing on the train as we speak!Hope you enjoy ^_^.

Jacket- River Island 
Jeggings- Topshop
Tee- H&M
Bracelets- Homemade & H&M
Trainers- Converse hi-tops (bought from ASOS) 

Todays outfit is about comfort, some spring warmth and some lighter spring colours. I recently picked up this jacket from River Island and think it's a great updated piece for Spring with the colours pairing with most things plus it makes a change from a denim jacket. I love the boucle texture. I'm loving my Topshop acid wash jeggings too as they pair nicelywith pastel colours and just generally give more of a spring summery feel to an outfit. And as for the minute it's sunny and the next it's raning so Converse are my footwear of choice which are also comfy as hell for a long day of uni, trapsing up and down the eight flights of stairs to my classroom! It's quite a simple look but I think it speaks for itself and I'm currently in love with it.


Check out my accompanying video for this look below:

I hope you're all well! Can you also enlighten me as to how I find other peoples blogs on here? I'm not sure how, simple Kat ^_^. I'm hoping to post a bit more regularly next week so until then...

Barcelona City Break- What I Wore

So if you're a regular reader of my blog you may already know that I recently went to Barcelona with boyfrined Chris for a four day break :-).

 Whilst I was there I did some outfit posts! I tried to pack light...ha!

Day 1


Dress- Primark
Sandals- Vivienne Westwood
Bag- Vintage Emporium
Belt- Primark
Bracelet- Pandora Style
Sunglasses- Ray Ban

Day one we got to Barcelona at around midday and seeing as the weather was chilly back home I'd wrapped up so couldn't wait to get changed! The weather was 20ish and I went for a simple dress to chuck on and get sight seeing in! My viv sandals were so comfy too which I found surprising seeing as they're plastic! 

Day 2

 Dress- ASOS
Jacket- eBay
Scarf- H&M
Sandals- Parisian flee market
Bracelets- homemade
Necklace- Topshop & Chris's
Cardigan- Tesco
Sunglasses- Ray Bans

Day two was a little chillier so I chucked on a cardi and threw my faux leather jacket and scarf into Chris's rucksack. We went up Mount Tibidabo to see the view of the city which was breath taking! At the very top of the mountain it was pretty freezing, being so high up there were vlouds and mist swirling around us so I was thankful of the extra layers! I love this dress, it's so easy to chuck on and seriously comfy with a grungy edge to it. Loooove! And the tassled sandals were an absolute steal which I picked up a few years ago in Paris. Can't say they were as comfy as my viv sandals though :-(. 

Day 2 Evening!

   Dress- New Look
Sandals- Vivienne Westwood
Bag - TK Maxx
Bracelets- Homemade & eBay
Cardigan- George
Jacket- eBay 
Sunglasses- Primark 
Necklace- Republic
Ring- Primark

You may have seen this outfit before in a previous post  worn for more of an evening look but I love wearing this for a casual styling too. Again I threw my leather jacket and a cardi in a bag for the evening and donned my aztec style nails once again. We found the most amazing tapas bar in the city- see my vlog video for more info! Champagne on tap and good food- what more could you want!?   

Day 3

Well today I didn't do a day outfit post as I was seeing the city on an open top bus and just looked rather wind swept! I got pretty chilly from being on the bus so stopped for a coffee. I even stole Chris's hoody I was that chilly ^_^.

 Day 3 Evening!

 Top- Rihanna for River Island
Blazer- Primark
Jeans- New Look
Sandals- Vivienne Westwood
Necklace- Republic
Ring- H&M
Watch- Casio
Bracelet- homemade 

 So on this particular night Chris and I were celebrating our 9 month anniversary and as we were away we decided to make a night of it and go for a nice meal :-). I fancied wearing a pop of colour whilst trying to keep my outfit tailored with the jacket. I'm loving black white and yellow together at the moment! If it weren't for the masses of walking around the city I'd have worn heels but practicality won this time. As for the top being a Rihanna for River Island top- well I simply bought it because I loved the colour and the fit! Excuse the stoned expression on my face in the first two photos, I'm not good with the flash >.<

 Day 4

Bracelets- Homemade, H&M & Pandora style
Scarf- Primark
T-shirts- Primark & hand me down (pink vest)
Jeggings- H&M
Pumps- Topshop
Bag- TK Maxx
Ring- Dixi

Day four was our final day. We flew at 10pm so I had to layer up for the cold back home and also it decided to chuck it down on our last day! This turned out to be a great excuse to go shopping although Chris was the one buying clothes whilst I helped him pick! It's not like me to steer clear of purchases! I love the colours of the bracelets, scarf and t-shirt layering altogether, giving a spring feel but also being cosy. I still love pastel shades after last year. This was a great outfit for sight seeing and keeping warm!

So there we have it- my outfits for barcelona! I also did a video on my outfits and a mini vlog with Chris which shows you some of the places we visited whilst we were there! I'd highly reccomend Barcelona for a city break. The food was tasty, the architectue is breath taking and the atmosphere in the streets and markets is great too!

Primark Alphabet Shirt

Hello hello lovely readers, I'm back! I had such a great break in Barcelona (which I'll talk more about in a post soon) and then to come back to this weather was amazing! I've had serious sunshine withdrawal symptoms over the winter and finally feel like spring is here. Now onto the outfit at hand...

 Shirt- Primark
Denim shirt- F&F Tescos
Leggings- Topshop
Top- hand me down
Flats- Topshop
Ring- Dixi
Watch- Casio
Bracelets- Homemade & eBay
Necklacce- Republic  
Sunglasses- Primark 


I've completely crumbled to the hype of this alphabet shirt from Primark. I first saw it on LLYMLRS blog and instantly fell in love. The problem was, it was sold out everywhere! I looked in four different Primarks in my area to come away sadly disappointed in my lack of findings. I can completely see why though, it's cheap at £12 and ties in nicely with the monochrome trend this season and to me it looks more high end than Primark. I finally managed to nab it on eBay, god bless the world of eBay! A skint student was selling it along with plenty of other bits so I was thrilled when I messaged her and she agreed to my buy it now price! I paid a bit more than I perhaps should of but I feel it was justified.

I was aiming for something to throw on and go today that looked simple but put together? This shirt is so versatile I can see me wearing it with high waisted skirts, disco pants, jeans, anything really! I thought the pastel shade of the sunglasses gave it a spring feel and tied in nicely with the denim shirt thrown over the top too. The only thing I will say is I was expecting this shirt to be a little longer to wear just with leggings and but it's not quite frankly! I've worn a light pink vest underneath as it's sheer and luckily this covers my bum but I think it would have looked nicer if it were a little longer but hey ho! Jeans next time me thinks.

Anway I hope everyones had another lovely weekened! I'm in the process of editing a vlog from barcelona and a what I wore in Barelona video too, so they'll be up on my YouTube channel very soon, along with a blog post to accompany them! It's good to be back ^_^

I'm going missing for a while...

Hello hello :-).

I hope you've all had a great bank holiday! I've eaten my weight in chocolate and caught up with friends and family all before I head to... Barcelona!!!

I'm so excited! Fake tan donned, nails painted and bags packed. I'm using my cath kidston bag to go away with which I LOVE!!

Anyway I'm hoping to do some outfit posts whilst I'm there and a vlog with Chris! If I can't post there I'll upload it all at the weekend- I'm back late Friday.

So yeah, just a quickie :-). Hope you all have a good week!
