Amateur

Waistcoat - charity shop, top - DIY, necklace - China, socks - Primark (most likely), sandals - M&S, shorts- Cba to say; you can't see them anyway...
Firstly, can I just put it out there that this waistcoat is the most amazing thing ever? It encompasses all my favourite patterns: zebra print, paisley, flowers - it's so awesome. What makes it better is that it only cost me £1.50 from a charity shop! Yes, when I bought it smelt a bit like musky grandmas, but a quick spin in the washing machine soon sorted that out.
Today is the last day I will ever have to think about English, as I had my last ever English literature exam! No more English - I did my language exam last year. I got out of the exam room feeling super happy because of that fact and also because the sun was beaming and I felt like skipping.

What made the day even better was that I got home before 11am, so I spent an hour outside reading in the midday sun. This is my perfect weather - sunny yet with a cool breeze. Today's outfit is both summery (sandals and shorts) and wintery (thick socks, velvet and woollen waistcoat). The weather here in the UK is always temperamental and bipolar, so I thought it was apt. However, things did not remain positive for long...

Firstly I could not find these sandals, so I had to delve into the shoe cupboard on a mission for find them! Luckily I did in the end - they were in a shoe box right at the bottom of the pile, reflecting how little I get to wear them, due to the rubbish climate. Once I found them and took some decent pictures, disaster struck. The entire SD became corrupt and deleted everything on it. Luckily my dad had a program that managed to retrieve everything that had ever been on the card, but since this was a 16GB SD card, this took a VERY long time.

Once we managed to savour the images, it turned out half of them were still corrupt, so I only had a few to pick from. Then I realised that they were slightly over exposed as it was too sunny for once (I even took these pictures in the shade!), and that they don't join together seamlessly since I did move the tripod around a little bit whilst taking the images. However, by this stage, I just thought to myself, ah f**k it and I decided to include them into this post. I love this outfit too much to waste the images.

So that was my good day turned bad and I have just realised I've wasted about 3 hours on this post, when I could have used them to do some revision. Oh well. 

How was your day?

P.S. I've started editing the HTML of my posts, instead of simply composing them using the Blogger interface, which means I can finally get some decent sized images, but it also means that for some reason, you cannot view them on mobile devices, which sucks. I'm sorry guys, looks like you will have to just view my mug super sized on the computer.
P.P.S. I honesly have so many posts that I want to do - I've even started drafting them - but I'm afraid I've still got 9 more exams to go!

  18. I agree! That waist coat is ah-mazing. So bright and colorful. I saw one like this very similar a few years back in a thrift store and didn't have any cash on me so I didn't grab it, once I got home I realised that the waistcoat was actually a designer piece (can't remember which designer) and retailed for over $300! Still to this day kicking myself over not buying it
