Crop Top - H&M // Skirt - River Island // Bag and Shoes - New Look // Olivia Burton
If you're even an infrequent visitor my corner of the internet, you'll know I'm not one to dress up. Thankfully where I go to university it's normal to wear trainers on a night out so you're way more likely to Nikes than in heels. But there's one event a year when you feel obliged to bring out a pair of heels - the university ball. It's still quite a casual night, with fair ground rides and gigs dotted around university, but it's the most dressy that I've been in a while and I thought that was reason enough to share the outfit with you! I think I've found the right balance between all dressed up and casual so expect me to repeat variations of this outfit for a while.
Although I have to make a confession. On the night I cheated and cracked out the comfy ankle boots- they still have a heel but I just couldn't face a night of queues and dancing in these shoes. One day I'll learn how to brave the pain, I swear. There's just something about being 5ft10" without heels that makes me feel like a, awkward towering lump. Are there any other tall girls that feel the same?
I've been home from university now for just under a week and I'm feeling a little lost. I've decided that this summer it's time for me to read every classic novel under the Sun. If you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments! x
