Top - Topshop
Culottes - New Look
Heels - ASOS

Sometimes it's good to wear stuff out of your comfort zone, and for a recent party I did just that! I really like the look of culottes, but never worn them before, but now I will definitely wear them again! I think they are super versatile, with heels, sandals, or trainers I think they will always look super cute. I wore them with this plain top, but you could quite easily wear it with crop tops too. These shoes are really comfy as well as the heel isn't thin, which also makes them easy to walk in!

If I get asked one more time "What are your plans after you graduate? What jobs are you looking at? Are you looking forward to leaving University?" I will not be found guilty shouting in the face of that person! The reality is I don't know what I want to do, and I am most definitely not looking forward to going into the big bad world of work! That sounds like I'm really lazy and I need to grow up, but I think most people in my situation feel the same. 

What I do know (finally) is that I'm off travelling at the end of the year and I am so looking forward to it!! I am off for 4 months in total, with two of my best friends who I have met whilst at Uni. We are off to New Zealand, Australia  Fiji, and not sure on specifics but countries around South East Asia. I think I will do a couple of posts on how we booked it etc over the next few months, and I'm also hoping to blog whilst I'm out there and keep readers, as well as my family up to date with what adventures I get up to. 

I think there is a possibility of too much pressure being put on students to go into a job straight away. For me personally I think this is a perfect time to travel and go on adventures before I do get into a serious job or career. As many of you know I study geography, so I know key parts of it I'm interested in, but I'm glad I've left myself a while before I have to choose what I want to do!

If anyone has any good blogger recommendations, who have travelled around NZ, Australia etc.? As we are starting to plan the actual activities we are going to do, so would love any help!

Dress - Topshop
Necklace - H&M
Bag - Michael Kors 
Heels - Dorothy Perkins

So I know this is another dressy post right after the last one, and the same shoes but thought I would share it anyway! This dress, once again, is very flattering, especially as it just flows down and is NOT tight in any way! It is quite short, so could be good if something was worn underneath. Due to the neckline being as it is I decided to wear a chocker style necklace, and the gold went perfectly well with the detailing on the shoes, and the bag. 

My makeup was done using my favourite combination on colours from the Naked 1 palette from Urban Decay. This lipstick is so good!!! It's relatively cheap from Topshop Beauty, and comes like a lipgloss, but dries matt. I can't find the link on the Topshop website, but this colour is in every store I've been in. I found it not to smudge, and stay on really well throughout the night.

Dress - Topshop
Necklace - Topshop
Heels -  Dorothy Perkins 

So on Thursday was the 'geography ball', and for those of you who don't know me personally, I am currently in my third year, studying geography, at Portsmouth. It was the last geography society event, and it turned out to be the best one! This wasn't instead of grad ball, but that isn't until July.

Anyway, this is what I wore! Such a simple dress but I absolutely loved it. It was a really flattering colour, and the fit was really loose, which I think really suits me. I bought this cute little necklace from Topshop too. The heels were the 'barely there' sandal style, but on the heel part was a side of gold (probably see it easier on the website). All of the outfit turned out to be pretty cheap, especially as I know I will wear it again, especially on holiday. 

My makeup was done using my usual go-to foundation by Laura Mercier. It is very full coverage, which for events like this is perfect. My eyeshadow was done using the Naked Palette. On my lips was Soar Lip Liner from MAC, and HoneyLove lipstick, also from MAC. My hair I curled using my babyliss wand.

I absolutely loved getting to be dressed up, and hope you like the outfit too!
