OOTD - When these walls don't feel like home remember that you're not alone

Top & Skirt - New Look
Shoes - Primark
Lipstick - Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 19
So... it's been a while, eh? It's probably shameful to admit but one of the things I was most worried about regarding my new room was finding somewhere to take outfit photos so they might be all over the place until I settle on a spot. Also the lighting is a wee bit rubbish and awkward to shoot with so bear with me!

I know I've been a bit absent lately but I'm trying to get myself back in to the swing of things - I'd only planned on taking a weekend off not almost two weeks! I'm not going to lie, it's taking me longer than I thought it would to settle in here. I've been a bit miserable and homesick for a while but I'm starting to feel a lot better about it all now. Moving away for university is a massive change and a really intense experience but I guess everyone's in the same boat. Sorry if you've had to put up with all my moaning on Twitter, I'm trying to be a bit more cheerful on there now! I had a bit of a wander around Aberdeen today and it's really starting to grow on me, it's a gorgeous city especially when the weather is as nice as it currently is.

This week is my freshers week and I have my first (and only) induction tomorrow which I'm quite nervous for, then on Wednesday I'm off to visit my best friend in St. Andrews which I am so excited for. On Thursday I'm popping home again for the weekend before my classes properly start next week. Exciting times! I'll hopefully be popping up a little room tour post at some point this week, I'm finally unpacked properly and it's nice and tidy - at least for now...


  1. I really like your skirt Charlotte. I need to get some nice tartan pieces for autumn. You can take me shopping after Fabb.


  2. The transition from home to uni is definitely hard, but as long as you keep open minded about it you're going to l ove it! Plus the area looks very pretty (from what I've seen on your instagram.)
