Turning 18 | What to Wear*


Just last week I turned 18, leading up to it I was stuck on what to wear to a party with my friends or even for a meal for my family.  I then decided that I would share a blog post with some outfit ideas that I have loved and so you might be able to get some inspiration. I am fully aware I'm not your normal fashion blogger. I don't look as fabulous as they do and being a student means I can't pay professional photographers and so I pay my best friend with our friendship to do it for me.

I tried my best to show you how much I loved these outfits and I hope you can see that!

This first outfit was my most 'civilised' outfit if you will because it wasn't short or low cut. I paired the  Madelyn Taupe Jumpsuit Set* from an online website called Tobi with the most gorgeous shoes from Ego Official* to add a different colour into the Nude mix. I added a fur jacket with my outfit too because with this temperamental British weather you can never tell if its going to be cold, hot or rain! I cut the label out of this jacket a long time ago but I have found a similar one from New Look here.

My second outfit was more of a party outfit for me because it was a little short and the slope in the dress is different to what I've seen in bodycon dresses before. This dress came from Tobi and even has the special bit of plastic in the top of the dress to hold it up which I can never find inside dresses these days, find this dress Here.  Like before I paired the dress with the Perspex heels from Ego Official because they broke up the gap between the floor and the dress with a little more black. Finally I partnered the outfit with a Coat from H&M.

My final outfit was my most 'girly' outfit of the three because it was a floral dress without being a floral print. The Skater Dress is the most beautiful lace pattern that I want this dress in every single colour now. Duck egg blue is a colour that I would never normally wear but in this dress I will happily wear it. The shoes are partnered this dress with are from Newlook and are a similar pattern. I decided to wear floral patterned shoes with the floral patterned dress because why not go from one extreme to another.  Unfortunately I cannot find these shoes anywhere but here are some similar.

Let's Call This Post.... Hello Again.

So it has been a little while  since I last came on my area of the Internet and wrote something... just under four months to be exact. A lot has happened in this time it is crazy to think I haven't shared much of it on here. I do share a lot on my Instagram stories because it takes two clicks and is super easy but I haven't even been posting on social media as much and only last week as we came into the new year have I started to post onto Instagram again. If you don't watch my Instagram stories or follow me on social media I am going to fill you in on what I've been up to and where I've been!

Starting all the way back in October I flew to New York City to see my best friend Chloe who I also saw at the same time the year prior (2016). I do in fact have a rather late photo diary going up soon because as you’ll know if you read my blog I love to photograph my trips!

I have also been completing lots of different pieces of coursework - okay I say a lot but really its been two for English Language and then probably about fifteen pieces for Health (but health is a 100% coursework based subject after all). These have kept me super busy over the past couple of months and my hands have been so tired from typing so much I haven't been motivated to type for my blog even though it’s what I love doing.

Something else that has been going on which you’ll know about if you follow me on twitter because I got very very excited about it after being so scared is applying to University. I sent off my application at the start of October and I have since been offered interviews at all five of my choices! I attended my first two interviews which were at the places I wanted to attend the most. Firstly I had my interview at Kings College London, which if you follow me on twitter you would know I was accepted the day after my interview! I was so shocked to be offered a place at KCL however it was my next interview that meant the world to me. For a long time I had wanted to go to Southampton University and even getting offered an interview there was a huge shock to me because I truly didn’t believe in myself that I would get one! My Southampton interview was the day after my KCL interview and so I found out about Kings while travelling home on the train. A week and a half after my interview at Southampton I was worried that it was taking so long and persuaded myself that I hadn’t gotten in. Until one lunchtime at college I received an email that literally made my dreams come true! All my hard work and I now had a place to study at Southampton. I am extremely excited for university now, I just need to make sure I keep pushing myself to get the best possible grades as my opportunity to study there is dependant on them. If you have followed my blog for a while you will know I was hoping to study Paediatric Nursing which now I have the chance to is absolutely crazy to me and I cannot wait!

Finally.... Just yesterday I turned 18! I don’t feel anywhere near responsible enough to turn 18 but it’s happened and that too brings so many more things for this new year. I can’t wait to bring my blog along with me on that journey.

 It feels like it has been too long and I can't believe I have put it off for so long but hello again and here’s to a fabulous 2018.

If you have been applying to university or are planning to study something similar to me then let me know in the comments or over on social media, I’d love to have a chat!
