CROP TOP & JEANS - TOPSHOP // KIMONO - H&M // NECKLACE - EBAY // SHOES - PRIMARK

I'm desperately holding onto the summer now. As much as I adore jumpers and layering, I don't want to say goodbye to my beloved kimono!! I found these super cute shoes from Primark for a bargain £8 and I couldn't be happier, apart from the fact I was missing half of my heels skin after I walked to school in them. Bad choice. Thank goodness for brilliant mothers who come to your rescue and pick you up after your lessons so you don't have to hobble home in even more pain! I definitely should have realised it's impossible to get shoes for that good of a price without any pain! All is good now, I have learnt my lesson and I now carry plasters with me all the time!

Subtle

TOP - NEW LOOK // JEANS - TOPSHOP // CONVERSE - OFFICE

Sixth form is always calling for comfy and casual outfits and this look ticks every box. I love the monchrome look of it, but the little bit of yellow in the tee makes it that tiny bit more exciting! You'll also notice from this and my last post I've been wearing winged eyeliner a lot, now that I have (almost) mastered the art of liner after years of practice! Although, I'm currently using Soap and Glory's Supercat Liner and the lasting power is so poor I end up with it all over my lids after a few hours. Do you guys suggest any good eyeliners?

wishlist: duster coats

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

The blogosphere has played it's tricks on me once again. This time, I'm lusting after a duster coat. I can tell they'd be the perfect transitional piece into Autumn, as a nice little cover up thats not quite a coat but warmer than a kimono. You can also see that I am certainly in a monochrome mood, and if it's not black and white it is extreme bright colour. What do you think of my picks?

Leather

T-SHIRT - TOPSHOP // SKIRT - H&M // CONVERSE - OFFICE

I have a feeling this autumn/winter I am going to have a long. ridiculous obsession with leather skirts.. I loved my skort style one from h&m last year and when I found this one in London a few weeks back in h&m too I knew I needed it in my wardrobe! My next task is to get a quilted one! I made this look a little more grungy and paired my oversized denim jacket with it but stupidly didn't take any photos of that!

Bang Bang

JUMPSUIT - NEW LOOK // CONVERSE OFFICE // CARDIGAN - H&M

I may have featured this jumpsuit on my blog only a few posts ago, but I was excited to style it down for sixth form. I rolled up the bottom and chucked on my converse and a cardigan for an easy day to day wear. I wish I had a cropped leather jacket right now because I can just imagine how great that would look with this!

Not the only one

CAMI - DOROTHY PERKINS // SKIRT - TOPSHOP // CARDIGAN - H&M

That heartbreaking moment when you realise only one of the 20+ photos you took is in a decent enough focus. I really can't get the hang of my DSLR, despite using it to blog for  a year or two now, I need my own personal photographer who not only knows about big chunky cameras but also takes good shots. Any takers? I will pay in cups of teas and cookies?

This is what I wore on Thursday for my first day back at sixth form. I wanted to look like I'd made an effort seeing as in a week or so I'll give up completely and be arriving in sweatpants every day. That's one thing I love about sixth form - you can wear trackies and leggings for the whole week and not give a sh*t! Anyway, I settled for a simple cami, cardi, skater skirt and my trusty converse.

Haul: New Look


Now that I'm a working woman with a flow of money into my bank account I've found myself internet shopping a lot more. And the problem I have is that I can't buy just one or two items. For example, in this order I spent originally £300 on 20+ items. Somebody needs to lock my bank card up and throw away the key. Although, thankfully for my allowance I do always intend on sending the majority back. Does anyone else do this or am I just awful at making decisions and cutting down those 30 items in my basket to 10?!

Anyway, thankfully I was disappointed with most of my order so I ended up buying just these 7 items. The boots featured on my Autumn Wishlist and I know they're not going to come off my feet throughout autumn, I've been after a few dresses which I can wear in the winter with some tights and boots and both of these checked numbers will be ideal! Finally, I fell into the monochrome trap and got 3 tops too. I love the floral one with the hint of neon yellow in it and the ribbed neck gives it a sport luxe vibe.

You'll also notice that I've had a bit of a blog make-over! I've got a new design as well as a domain - you'll now find me at lucy-cole.co.uk rather than lucycole.blogspot.com! What do you think?
