Style on a Budget

Today we are talking all about student style, as a student I have two moods. The lazy mood where I will throw the first thing I see on, then the effort mood, where I put thought into my outtfit and make sure I look the  part. Dressing as a student doesn't have to be difficult and to make it easier PrettyLittleThing have a dedicated page on their site for every outfit you ever need. Both of these can be worn so many different ways and are perfect to take you from summer to winter.

 Thanks to the lovely Laura from Laura Haley Photography, we have lots of outfit posts coming up and I hope that this is the start for them being more frequent and of high quality. Do you remember the days where mirror pictures were on my blog - gone were those days and here come the professional ones. Laura is the best to shoot with if you are around the Leeds area, she is so accomodating and comfortable to be around. Check out her facebook page here! 


In this post I have two outfits that showcase those exact moods perfectly, the lazy go to one and the effort pretty one, both are easy to put together and make you look more alive, even if you are dying inside.

As the months get colder, this is usually my go to look for everything. A jumper is never a bad idea, this burgundy distressed one (£18) is made out of the softest material and instead of being long and slouch. It cuts off at the hips and having the distressed holes through it makes me much more causual. Paired with my favourite black jeans, a fail safe option and these killer boots (£30). These boots were made for walking! They are ever so simple but covered in suede so they look extra stylish, the 4 inch heel scared me at first but they are comfortable to wear and easy to pair with anything, I can see myself wearing these all through the autumn/winter.

I am in LOVE with this mustard coloured dress (£25), it may not be something I can wear when it is pouring down with rain but in September it will definetely be getting a lot of wear, seen as though that is a month that is always warmer than the actual summer in the UK. The dress wraps around, sinching me in, in all the right places and making it look even more flattering. Accompaned by frills at the top it looks super cute. Mustard is a colour that I never thought I would wear, but after this dress I think I need more in my winter and summer wardrobe. The faux suede jacket (£35) is a great cover up to wear with the dress, it works with it perfectly. I can also see myself wearing this with other outfits this autumn because grey is such a versatile colour, I think it would work amazing with the jumper above too!

As this is a pretty summery dress, I have paired it with some simple wedges that are my go to. These are probably the only heels (not including boots) that I will wear to uni as they are so comfortable to wear even with lots of walking and steps to climb.

These outfits are perfect whether you're going to a 9am lecture or a 9pm meal to a local resturant, PrettyLittleThing have got everyone covered this new academic year, I'm going to be making a cheeky order very soon to buy some more essentials. p.s we also shot these photos in one of my favourite locations ever, Laura found this almost office park by accident, with flowers, a stream and that gorgeous mural behind!

*thanks a million to PrettyLittleThing for working with me on this post, thanks a million to you all reading this ♥
