saying nothing, that's enough for me





Playsuit: Ark
Jumper: Topshop
Flatforms: H&M
Earrings: Forever 21
Necklace: Gift


I absolutely love this playsuit, especially the detailing of the cut-outs on the sides! They definitely make it a more distinguished piece. I sometimes find the sizings in Ark can be a little off; there's been a few occasions where I haven't been able to buy something because none of the sizes fit me. Generally the clothes are lovely though, I especially love this , this and these!

Once again I've been spending hours in the library trying to complete my assignments. Time seems to go so quickly when I'm procrastinating though! Counting down the days until May 8th - when I'm free!

time-travelling diamond



Blazer/Jacket: Topshop
Top: Arctic Monkeys Tour Tee
Skirt: H&M
Flatforms: H&M

Did anyone else rush out yesterday and grab this week's NME? Since I've become a student I've had to resist buying it every week (sob!) but couldn't keep myself away from it with Alex Turner on the cover! Their new song 'Electricity' is available to listen to today, you can hear it here if you haven't already. They're definitely going in a new direction, sounds more 'Evil Twin' and 'R U Mine?' than any of their old stuff, still amazing though!

Sorry for the lack of photos today, the light was absolutely awful in every room of the house. Both the skirt and the blazer are items I rarely wear even though I love them. The colour of the blazer is so perfect for the majority of the things I own, just need the good weather to wear it without a coat! Today I've been a good student and worked for hours in the library. Having a bit of a night off today with a few friends, we're going to watch 'The Last Exorcism' and 'I Spit on Your Grave'. Looking forward to the nightmares!

polka dots fill my eyes






Coat: Topshop
Shirt: Primark
Leggings: Topshop
Shoes: New Look
Rings: River Island, Topshop & Dorothy Perkins

Officially moved back to Cambridge for my last few  stressful weeks as a fresher! There's such a mountain of work to do before I finish, I don't even want to think about it right now.
I never usually go into Primark, the one in my hometown is such a mess that I'm never bothered to look. However, whenever I pop into the Cambridge store for the essentials (tights) there's always a few things that catch my eye - and for a tenner who can say no?! I love the shirt even though I usually hate overly see-through clothes, I think because it's easy to tuck into things it doesn't become something you can only wear once. I've been eyeing this up for ages, elephants are my absolute favourite so I'm trying to use it as an incentive to get all my work done - it's not really working though!

a dark aftermath




Coat: Topshop
Dress: H&M
Shoes: H&M
Rings: Topshop & Forever 21

I went shopping with some friends in London yesterday, was so lovely but I'm majorly achy today and my feet are so sore! This dress in H&M caught my eye immediately, and for only £7.99 it's such a bargain! They had a few other colours aswell which I'm tempted to invest in, especially the leopard print one and the yellow one. I actually dreamt of these shoes before buying them, it's been a mission for me to get them for my tiny feet (size 3!) and neither of the Cambridge stores ever had them. We went to a place called Vapiano for lunch where I had scampi spaghetti, the service is odd but the food is so nice! Definitely go if you haven't yet!

Helloo! I'm Elena, I've been reading and following blogs for about 2 years now and thought it was finally time to get involved myself! I live between Cambridge and Hertfordshire and my two big loves are clothes and music. I intend to use this blog (hopefully) as an accurate representation of myself and my life, so if there's anything you want to know feel free to ask!
