So the other day I saw this shirt in H&M and you know the
way that sometimes you see an item of clothing and you can just know how you
would wear it? Well that happened to me, and even though my cheap-skate tendencies
were reluctant at the fact it was £20, I really wanted this shirt.
To be fair, sort of smart-casual shirts are something that
is missing from my wardrobe so really it was a smart buy. This outfit is vaguely
based off something Clara Oswald wore in Doctor Who. Whoever styles the characters
in the last 5 or so years of Doctor Who has amazing taste and I always get
style envy while watching the show. Doctor Who may have had some dodgy
storylines recently but at least it is pretty to look at!
The exposure is a bit off in these pictures as I got someone
to take them for me, but didn’t think to put it back on a pre-programed mode. I’ll
need to train them up on all the dials.
Basing my outfits of sci-fi characters; I’m such a nerd…

So this week sucked. If you follow me on instagram and thought
the reason I hadn’t posted anything was because I had died or something. No, I'm
very much alive. Things just all caught up with me this week and I wasn’t able
to instagram my pictures. This may happen again in the next couple of months,
so yeah. Just bear with me, I will eventually post everything.
It’s weird how some weeks, I have taken a lot of pictures of
me for this thing and others it’s just a lot of objects. There not really much
to say about this week; it wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be but I still
felt like I had a lot to do.
So the other day I was in BHS looking at their formal dresses
for prom when I saw these shorts. Well, technically my wee sister saw these shorts. In my defence they were on sale, but I'm practically an adult
and I bought clothes from the kids department.
I have to say that I was kind of surprised and worried that
they fitted me; in fact these 14-15 years old shorts were slightly too baggy. I’m
not sure if it is me, seeing as I'm underweight and have literally nothing in
the way of hips, or if it’s just the fit. I remember the reason I had to move
on to adults clothes when I was wee was because the kids clothes were getting
too short but were really loose on me. I'm going to go with that theory or I'm going
to just get worried.
In all honesty, I would probably shop from the kids section
of some shops more if I fitted the stuff, especially for things like shorts. I was
struggling last summer to find cheap shorts that were long enough to well, be
considered shorts. Most of them were very skimpy – and as much as I don’t judge
people for wearing them, I personally don’t do skimpy. So far this year, it doesn’t look that
much better but for obvious reasons, the kids shorts are a lot longer. Who
knows, maybe I’ll start getting in the way of buying kids clothes more. Just as
long as no-one psychoanalyses this as nostalgia.
(I love my short hair so much right now)
Shopping in the men’s and kids section, what a rebel
All these pictures are a bit blurry because I was stupid and
took them at late o’clock on a ridiculously slow shutter speed (to be fair it
was only 9 pm). I'm also grinning like an idiot in all of them as I got someone
to take them for me and I kept pulling funny poses while waiting for them to
take the picture, then laughing at myself. I look so weird when I laugh too.

Today I'm listening
(p.s: sorry for being
a lazy blogger lately, I don’t have much time on my hands between the history assignments, chemistry experiments,
work and existential crises I'm supposed to be dealing with, I should pick up the
pace again by May)
I'm probably going to make it so that I post this on either
the Friday or the Saturday; as if I'm working early on Saturday, I can’t really
put it up Friday. But if I'm working late on Saturday then the same applies for
the Saturday night. Next week may be
a bit erratic as most of the deadlines I’ve been ignoring are for next week. Oh
