Hello my loves, I've gotten a few emails about my return to this blog, which made me feel a little sad and guilty as I didn't mean to "leave" it. Truth is, I just haven't had much to say and didn't want to bore you all with personal  posts. Believe it or not, apart from picking up some bits and pieces for my holiday I haven't been shopping since April!!! I've had a lack of fashion inspiration but college is starting again and I will no longer be able to work in my pj's (honestly just love my job!), I've compiled this list of back to school/college essentials. This little wish list are some things I will definitely be picking up in the next week. Let me know what your essentials for college/school are?

Topshop Leigh jeans are my favourite item of clothing ever! Thats a big statement right? They feel like leggings in terms of comfort, they wash well, last ages, look amazing on and you don't need to wear a long top because they are actually jeans. Honestly, just amazing! If you are in Ireland, I actually recommend purchasing online because the price difference is incredible. Another must have for me is tank tops or cami's, the perfect thing for layering and a must have for leggings. This year, the Topshop Cami's are on my wish list which seem to be all over the place now (like on Glamorous) and are in so many colours and styles like high low and scallop. A lot of people tend to disagree but I just love dresses for college. They are so easy in the mornings, throw on a dress with a cardigan, tights and some boots and away you go. My go to footwear for the majority of the year seems to be black ankle booties, they just go with everything!

The Essentials Checklist


  • T-shirts, tank tops and cami's in a range of colours - perfect for layering. 
  • Chunky boyfriend cardigans and jumpers.
  • Leather jacket, army jackets, faux fur jacket.
  • Shirts, blouses and graphic t-shirts.
  • Scarfs in many colours, patterns and textures.
