Top - H&M / Kimono - H&M / Jeans - H&M / Jellies - Truffle (Northampton) / 
Scrunchie - American Apparrel

I have wanted a pair of jelly shoes since their resurgence last summer. For some reason it has taken till now to take the plunge. And it feels so good!! I'm all nineties again, reminiscing about my childhood times. After my last new shoe purchase (see here) I was worried about the comfort factor. But, no need to fret, they are like little clouds of shoe comfort heaven. However, there is a cherry to put on the top of this icing, as they were a mere £10. Bargs or what!!

I went for the classic flat blacks, but after me and Beth saw the glittery pink ones in River Island, I'm thinking I'm going to have to invest another pair.

Jacket - H&M via eBay / Rest of outfit - all H&M

Okay, so as I started to write where each piece of my outfit is from above, I realised my ENTIRE outfit was H&M?! In past posts I have outlined my clear love of the store, I even purchased H&M items when I went to New York (however it was blimmin cheap, the new collection was out and 15% student discount. I mean how could I resist?! -- oh yeah check out my New York haul here).

This post seems to have shocked me in to really seeing my true obsession with the brand. I clearly need help.

So two weeks ago I was in NYC with the Mother, my friend Beth and her Mother. We are talking a proper girly 5 days here. It was one of my dreams and a thing to tick off the ol' bucket list to visit New York, and it was just as amazing as I had hoped. 

Although I didn't actually spend as much as I thought I would, I brought quite a few pieces. After deliberation I thought I would show you what I brought in video haul format to make life easier. However, I will admit, I feel so cringe when watching this video. BUT I have decided that Uni is nearly over and it is time to YOLO. So here it is guys.

P.S. my face at the end is a picture.

In The Name Of Fashion

Shoes - Next / Blazer - H&M / Top - Primark / Jeans - H&M / Bag - H&M / 
Sunglasses - Three Monkeys New York

So quite a few posts ago I featured these beauts little red pumps I brought from Next with a voucher the Grandparents gave me. Since then they have been waiting patiently in my wardrobe for the sun to come out enough that my feet can cope with out socks. I slipped them on with hearts in my eyes. A few hours later the hearts turned to tears as blisters overtook my poor little tootsies and ankles. 

EVERY TIME I buy new shoes I have to battle through the pain until my feet get accustomed!! All day I just kept on repeating to myself, "but they're so pretty".

All in the name of fashion huh?

Ready For Take Off

Jumper - H&M / Vest - H&M / Leggings - H&M / Boots - Office

So two weeks ago I headed to New York for 5 days. This was my 21st Birthday present from my Mother and Father, who have helped me tick a couple of things off my bucket list and made a dream come true. Oh gosh I do sound overly corny.

I had an AMAZING time!!! I will be uploading my first ever haul video to show you all the things I brought. I'm a little shakey but it's my first video. Anyways back to this post. I brought this cream roll neck jumper from good old trusty H&M (of course) to wear on the flight. It was so soft and cosy. I always get cold on flights so this was perfect. This is basically the outfit I wore on the plane, although I wore my brogues instead of the boots and had my leather jacket to throw over the top. 

Before we jet setted off, Mumma and I got our hair cut. Although you may not be able to tell, I got little bit of a fringe cut in as I wanted some form of change. I really like it although I'm constantly sweeping my blinkin' hair out my eyes. I may even be a dare devil next time and get my hair cut a little shorter. Oh my.

That Bomber Again

Jacket - Monsoon / Dress - H&M / Necklace - H&M / Boots - Office / Sunglasses - Topshop

These photos were actually taken around two weeks ago (if not longer), but there is no time like the present. Now the sun is starting to do it's thing again, I can start to wear this jacket a lot more. As I love wearing all black everything, this jacket is great for adding a subtle bit of colour.
