'She Way Out'



Forever 21 Laser Cut Top
Primark Anklet
Long time no speak. Can't believe I can now say I have finished my first year of university - I have genuinely loved it and can't believe how much I have enjoyed it and made some amazing friends. I have really struggled to keep up to date with my blog but now I have 4 months off so I have no excuses...
Bit of a random outfit anyway. But had to share these heels from New Look. They're not too high, comfortable (so far) and well they don't look too bad either, even on my ugly feet (my picture really doesn't do them justice)

'Roll With It'



I've decided that I'm banning myself from pattern. As much as I love patterns, when you have a wardrobe full of them, it makes pieces looking good together very difficult. So when I saw these gorgeous crepe cigarette trousers from ASOS I knew they would be a good staple piece, for both the summer and winter. I thought they weren't too bad for £25 either. And of course another high neck top was needed wasn't it...

'Settle Down' | Topshop £12 Black Cami Dress


So this is a bit of a different post for me. I brought this £12 Black Cami Dress from Topshop a few days back whilst I was on my placement there and had no idea what to wear with it. So I thought I would try a few outfits in one post - let me know in the comments which ones you like or your favourite I would love to know. All outfit details are below and let me know if you like this kind of post.

'Living for The Weekend'

Topshop Knitted Jumper
Primark White Sleeveless Blazer
Primark Sandals
So my 3 week placement at Topshop has ended :( I had the most amazing time and it really is such a great brand to be involved with (check out my instagram sarah_bowater to see some pictures!) but of course it meant that I was around clothes for 8 hours a day - and I'm talking nice clothes too - not good for my student budget.
This post is a mishmash of two different outfits I could possibly wear, one for comfort, and the other one if I'm feeling brave. I've never worn (or been confident enough to wear) a bralet before but this navy blue one caught my eye straight away. I put this lovely knit-like jumper over it which is slouchy and so comfy, but thought this white sleeveless Primark blazer would look nice over it too. The sandals are a bargain of £14 and are so comfortable to wear and I seriously struggle to find comfy shoes these days. I love this little pink gingham headband too - again I'm not normally confident enough to wear stuff like this but I'm going to give it a go!
Don't forget to check out my Instagram and Twitter (both accounts are sarah_bowater) for more updates and let me know whether you like the outfits in the comments.

'Iron Sky'

Topshop White Top (not on website yet)
Primark Jelly Shoes (£4)
Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch (review here)
Before I start, I just want to say yes, I know I'm wearing jelly shoes, but I have no intention in wearing them out, just when I'm on holiday, but I thought they finished off this outfit particularly well (and they remind me of my older sisters pink glitter Barbie jelly heels which I was so jealous of as a child - ha now I have my own pair! Over 10 years too late though ... and yes, I had a haircut - a serious hair cut. I was getting sick of having my hair so limp and flat and heavy, so I decided to go for it and have it the shortest its ever been. I definitely have not got used to it yet, but it's already so much easier to handle and part of me does want my long hair back, but we always want what we haven't got I suppose!

So tomorrow I'm starting my 3 week work placement at Topshop and I have got to think of outfits that are pretty much all Topshop, hence the nearly all Topshop outfit. I got this top on friday from the Folklore trend (I've been swotting up :) ) and I just think the relaxed fit will make it comfortable to work in and I love the pattern on the front. Now, the treggings. I have a love hate relationship with these. I love them when I see people wearing them, but I just think they do attract attention - and I'm not sure in a good way. Let me know in the comments anyway - and I would love to know what you think about my hair and the jelly shoes of course :)

I'm not sure how much blogging I will be doing around the next few weeks as I am blogging my time at Topshop as part of my course, but unfortunately this is privated (hopefully I will make it public after the marking so you can read it!)

Thanks for Reading and follow me on Instagram and Twitter: sarah_bowater for more updates and pictures on my next few weeks working at Topshop!
Hope you like the outfit!
