Stripes in Spring

 (Coat - Charity Shop £5, Bag - Urban Outfitters, Striped Top - Forever 21, Boots - Office)
Hello! First of all, I hope you've had a lovely Easter and a cheery weekend. The last of the snow in England seems to have bid its final adieu and today the sun shone and birds chirped. It's truly Spring, at last! I took the opportunity to take a few photos to show my newly short hair and this weekend's outfit. I am, admittedly, becoming quite attached to this coat - it's ever so comfy and for five pounds, it's my prized bargain buy. My striped top is also becoming a recent favourite, which I pur-chased a few weeks ago from Forever 21. Although I have discovered an old treasure - this leather bag has been hidden in my wardrobe for the last year, and when I came across it, I knew it would come in plenty of use!
I've spent my first school-free days with a  l a z y  mentality - catching up on The Walking Dead and sleeping all day have taken priority over much-needed revision. Oh dear! For now, I am going to watch The Goonies for the thirtieth time and make a cuppa tea. School work can wait until tomorrow (always tomorrow)! How have you spent the weekend?
Also - I shakily recorded a couple of clips whilst outside in ode to Spring finally arriving! It's trés terrible, but I am quite happy to see the sunshine say a greeting so I thought I'd compile this and share. Hope you enjoy!

Have a wonderful week,
Eva xxx

  19. Hello Eva,
    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm a student currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the attitude of young women towards today's luxury brands ads, and if you, or any of you lovely readers, had 5 minutes to answer it, it would be much much help :) And of course it is totally anonymous...

    Here is the link of the survey : https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RVY9Z33
