Despite my student life looming, I can’t help but lust after new (and beyond my budget) items. Urban Outfitters have really been impressing me lately, so I thought I’d share a few of their items that I
Retro Pattern Turtleneck Jumper
I’m 99% sure I don’t suit turtlenecks, I’m also 99% sure that I don’t even care. This jumper is gorgeous. It could last all through fall and winter… and spring and summer knowing Scottish weather! It just looks like such a versatile piece and I would love something like this.
Nike Roshe Run Trainers
Despite literally just getting my Adidas Superstars, I am already craving a different style of trainer. The Nike Roshe Runs are another ‘fashion’ trainer that’s been making the rounds lately and I think these grey ones are so nice. I’m really loving the look of casual shoes paired with skirts or jeans and I think these Roshes are perfect for that look. I must confess to being inspired again by ClothesEncounters for these ones, she styles trainers so beautifully and she’s basically goals.
Patterned Pelmet Skirt
As you may or may not know, I’ve been trying to branch out style-wise a bit more lately, and though it may not seem all that adventurous, wearing skirts is a big jump for me. However, when I saw this skirt I had a minor heart palpitation, its SO gorgeous. Literally, I would wear this always, it’s a stunning pattern but it’s not too bold or in your face. I can envisage me wearing this with my Superstars and I look so fine. I need this right now!
Blue Alex Romper
Playsuits are another item that are a bit out of my comfort zone. Because of my very athletic body shape, anything that fits my shoulders will be huge on the waist and hips, that’s why playsuits are such a conundrum. There’s just a lot of places they need to fit and this is a near impossible feat on my body. Nevertheless, that doesn’t take away from how lovely this playsuit is. It’s definitely more of a dressier piece, but the high neck makes it really classy and I think it would be lovely.
Extreme High Rise Ankle Grazer Jeans in Black
Skinny jeans are another bane-of-my-life clothing item. As well as broad shoulders, I also have some seriously muscular legs, narrow hips and a surprisingly smallish waist. It’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to jeans, especially when high-rise is my go to. So far, the only skinny jeans that work for me are the Topshop Joni Jeans, infamous for stretching, fading and ripping, so not ideal. Basically my quest in life is to find some damn good skinnies and these look like a pretty good option. I live in hope at least!
Suede Pocket Plum Backpack
As y’all know, I’m heading on into University soon, and I can think of a ridiculous number of uses and styling options for this backpack. It’s literally so stunning. It’s very minimal and I think it’s such a classic piece. I would get my money’s worth for sure as it would probably never leave my body once I got it.
Thank you for reading the listings of a poor Uni student to-be! I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you again soon!
