This post is going to be in a few parts, I'll start off with clothes!
Sixth form clothesMy sixth form allows us to wear our own clothes instead of a uniform which I have worn for the last 12 years of my education. Some people may be excited by this prospect but I have dreaded this for ages! I struggle enough on non uniform days, let alone 2 whole years. To make it worse, we have a strict uniform code, including no jeans, no leggings, no short skirts, no bare shoulders etc which means I can't wear most of my clothes :-(((
I've bought a few things to comply with the rules though I think they'll relax the rules after the first few weeks. These outfits aren't exactly what I'd usually wear and I'm still unsure about them but hopefully they're not too bad haha.
Skirt- £22 Dorothy Perkins
Blouse- Primark last October, around £10
In winter I'll probably wear a cardigan over this and maybe tights, though I'm not sure which colour would go with it? Also my shoulders are bare with this so I'm already breaking one rule oops
Skirt- Forever 21, £5.95
Blouse- It was a gift from a friend but I think it's vintage
This is the one I'm probably least sure of, also I'm aware the blouse is completely see through here and I would wear a top under it as I did with the first outfit! I didn't notice until after I'd take them oops. I feel uncomfortable wearing a maxi skirt and I'm not sure why! I guess it's because I hardly ever wear them so I guess I should try to get used to it as I actually think this looks okay! It's quite simple and plain with the collar adding a little detail, so I guess I'd wear a necklace or something to make it more interesting.
Blouse- as in first outfit
Skirt- £5 from a shop in London
Dress: New Look, £9
As you can see I don't wear trousers often, though I intend to buy a pair of high waisted trousers when I go shopping next week!
Other back to school stuff!!As well as clothing I stocked up on some stationery and a new school bag as my current one is quite literally falling apart. Here are some photos!
I'm using my pencil case from last year- a Cath Kidston make up bag, and using the same old pencils, glue etc. However I got these 3 pens from a paperchase outlet:-)
