sing like you think no-one's listening.



Gah. I'm on my third day of freedom and I'm already bored!! I always forget how short my attention span is and while I get stressed out revising every day, I do like being busy and I like a routine. Luckily my list of things to do for the next few weeks is about the length of my arm!! And I've almost finished my first reading-for-pleasure book, Requiem for a Dream. I loved the film (Jared Leto might have helped...) and I love transgressive writers like Hubert Selby Jr. I have a list of 10 books I want to read over summer but at this rate I might manage twenty!! Shall I write a review when I'm done? I know a lot of you are literature geeks like me :]]]

The last few days have been fun though :]]] Friday we had dinner and went to see Sex and The City 2 (which I thought was utterly godawful. If you want to know why my sentiments are expressed quite well by Hadley Freeman here) and then Saturday my housemate and I had a mooch round Birmingham and then we went to the cinema, got a takeaway and went out :]]] Sunday was well a truly a BBQ and recovery day but I headed off to Leeds in the afternoon to go see my parents and their friends :]]]



This is the outfit I wore on Sunday before I left uni. I'm back tomorrow but I decided to only bring outfits home that I'd already done outfit posts of or wasn't really sure about so I didn't miss out on taking photos while I was home!! I love this outfit; I was inspired by a picture I saw in the BooHoo magazine (which I now can't find!!) of a girl in a tutu skirt with a denim shirt and though, ah!! I could do that!! These little lacey socks are my favourite things ever right now :]] I somehow managed to shoe-horn a lot of trends into this outfit- nude, lace, romantic, denim, socks... I also feel a bit like a fairy!!



I really enjoyed taking photos at uni, and it was such a lovely bright day. The lighting was really nice. I took these in the alley just next to our house; having my tripod really makes things easier!! My hair was still up in a quiff from the night before but it was so solid it was still fine the next day!! It's nice to be able to have my fringe up or down :]]] I really want my hair cutting but I'm going travelling round Europe in a couple of weeks and I can't imagine myself blow drying my bob in a hostel!! I'm keeping it longer so I can throw it into a pony or plaits and then I'll cut it short again when I get back :]]]

So yeah, I think that's everything!! I'm gonna chill out, watch Glee and read before tomorrow. Hoping to fill my days up with lots of writing and working and maybe go swimming and dancing and get the most I can out of the new few weeks- 3 months til I go to America!!



What do you want to see at girlnextdoorfashion? (while I have a lot of time on my hands!!) Any questions, ideas, debates?


Drop me a comment :]]]

  1. Very cute...on the edge of fashion, but still definitely works for every day. I would love to see this tutu skirt layered :)
