Pocket watch necklace

Shirt- Republic (charity shop)
Blazor- H&M (borrowed from flatmate)
Jeggings- Warehouse 
Wedges- New Look
Bag- Accessorize
Necklaces- charity shop and Urban Outfitters

Last night out before christmas and went to Exo for the best motown night (my monthly workout) in a while (not so much best morning hangover but) its a very cas club so no dress or bare legs for me, thankfully the coldness and wind up here is gash. These Warehouse jeggings have had better days and after discovering that they started to wear and rip inside the thigh i reaaally didnt want to throw them out so just made rips in them buut you cant really see them cause there long length and im not tall, so it looks like theres only 2 rips in them but theres more.. (bit of a fail not gonna lie)
I love this shirts colour and thought it brightened up the outfit a bit from just black & white. This clutch is the perfect size to hold everything, even held my scarf last night and has a wristband so easy to carry (esp after 1 to many drinks) The Urban Outfitters necklace is really cute and is a pocket watch which flips open and has a really authentic design on the back, its one of my favourite necklaces! 
Ohhh my Papa Johns pizzas arrived with my 2 litre bottle of Irn Bru, perfect cure.

Buckled cape

Cape- Dorathy Perkins
Headband- Topshop
Tshirt- Urban Outfitters
Shorts- Vintage Rangler from 'Once Upon a Time'
Necklace- Miss Selfrige
Socks- New Look
Wedges- New Look
Bag- River Island

I've never really been drawn to capes, i always thought they looked like ponchos and after wearing a pink, fluffy one with pom-pom balls hanging off the neck when i was 5, i swore off them for life. But i LOVE this cape! Such a find in DP and i love the buckles. It has a fur lined hood too which does make me look like a sort of Dementor but ive learnt my lesson and would rather be warm than be in bed for 2 weeks with the cold (first time living in Aberdeen.)

Leotard- Topshop (old)
Jeggings- Warehouse
Pendant Necklace- Urban Outfitters

Ok so I look like a ghost in these photos but in all fairness I was quite ill and a full day at uni wasn't making it any easier....

I tried out the Burberry look with the socks and heels and so glad I did cause it was so cold and it kept my feet so warm! Also please excuse how mucky the wedges are it was a rainy and muddy day and we strolled along some mucky pathways. The scarf was my granma's handed down to my mum and then knicked by me. I love the colours and print and its so nice and warm to wear but I dont even know where its originally from which I love and love the family feel off it too.

I LOVE MY COURSE. Its so much fun (at times.) We have to produce and style a photo shoot in groups and heres a few photos from ours. We had 3 photographers from Aberdeen college helping us out so these are a few non-official ones thanks to the unseen babe Lauren who didn't model for it but told us what to do. Our theme was 'Essex Glam' so basically posh looking in trashy places so we hit a few bars, market places, harbor. It wasn't until yesterday that I saw a photo shoot with Caggie and Millie from Made in Chelsea where they wore netted, puffed dresses in a grotty cafe so it's kind of the same theme as that but like to think ours will be better... Worth a wish.
