It hasn’t exactly been the coldest of winters so far in London, in fact it’s quite the opposite and it’s been mild all the way through December. But as usual January brings with it a bitter chill, and so I can’t help but try to wrap up and block out the cold. That’s what this outfit is all about: an attempt to stay warm without hiding the essence of the outfit under bundles of layers and scarves. Continue reading

There’s no point in lying; the best thing about working in retail for a brand like Topshop is the discount. I might as well not get paid because as soon as that money comes in it goes straight back to them via the clothes that I buy. But it has done wonders for my wardrobe, and seeing as my life is now spent at work I use every shift as an opportunity to showcase my new purchases and try to remix them into as many outfits as possible. I share my #ootd’s regularly on Instagram and thought I’d share a few here with you also! If you want to see more in the future then make sure to follow me @rosemolly93. Continue reading
Seeing as I don’t have a personal photographer following me around capturing me looking into shop windows and brushing hair out of my face, I have to carry my own camera around with me and snap up any opportunity to take outfit photos. This time I was in the midst of a wonderful afternoon with the darling Lauren, who I met, and lived with, in Bristol. After living so close to each other at university, a catch up was much needed after almost two months apart! As for the outfit, I’m a little bit in love with fur at the moment, especially this gilet which adds a little pazazz to any old outfit. It’s also just the right amount of coverage for the cooler September temperatures, though I’m sure I’ll be needing sleeves soon enough… Continue reading
Last week I was lucky enough to spend 5 days under the scorching Tuscan sun in a villa with 17 incredible people. Although I didn’t really plan a post on the trip it just so happened that I have enough photos (919 to be exact) to put a little something together! After the stress of third year, finals, and the dreaded wait for results, six days of sun bathing, drinking (cheap) wine and non-stop laughing is just what I needed to unwind. Although we were based near Lake Trasimeno, we managed to fit in a quick trip to Florence – my favourite city in the world. We spent less than 24 hours there, but that was enough to soak up the atmosphere, take some scenic photos and of course try some ice cream. The temperature was reaching 38 degrees so it was a bit of a struggle to spend too long wandering around in the day, but as the sun started to set it cooled to the perfect temperature, and also gave us the perfect view over this beautiful city. If you haven’t been, go. And if you have been, go again.

So my three years as a Philosophy student at Bristol university have (officially) ended! The fate of my degree has been sealed, and all that remains is the wait until dreaded results day. As my lack of posting suggests, the last month has been a whirlwind of ups, downs, and a few side-to-sides with finals, so blogging has been right at the bottom of my to-do list. But now that I quite literally have all the time in the world I can’t wait to get back into it and reboot my blogging game. I’m easing myself back into it with this outfit I wore whilst visiting my boyfriend in Exeter. I’ve paired my chosen shirt of the summer with black jeans and cleated sandals for an afternoon of strolling around the city centre. I’m loving a loose shirt recently, and paired with tight jeans and slightly more formal shoes it’s perfect for a smart/casual style – my favourite. I’ve also brought my staple summer bag, my cream Modalu, out of the hidden depths of my wardrobe and into the light! Fingers crossed the sun hangs around in the UK for a while longer.
