Lust List: October

I have just returned to Nottingham for my third (and final) round of uni life, which is super scary but also crazy exciting at the same time (sorry for missing a post last week, I’ve been busy working until the last minute at home and packing)! I’ve had the most incred two years here and met some of the most important people to me during my experience in Nottingham Trent, and I’m hoping this year will be as fun-filled and special as the others (let’s forget about the huuuuge work load and dissertation for a min). Although I’ll be trying my best academically and taking all opportunities that come my way, I want to hang on to the magical world that is university and therefore embrace the night life, ease of socialising and, of course, the cool and quirky city of Nottingham. On that note, I’d like to dedicate this post to third year, in a kind of ‘cheers’ to everything that’s brought me here so far and everything to come in the future! Here are some bits I’m lusting over this autumn that would really help coax me out of bed on those ugly hangover days…

Oversized shirts are a key staple to my wardrobe, but even more so in the colder months. I love how easy to style they are and also how they hide a multitude of sins! They create a super flattering silhouette and are great to chuck on with jeans or trousers when I’m stuck for what to wear. Baggy shirts are my go-to when eating / drinking out too, as I don’t have to worry about concealing my food baby after a curry or one too many beers…

Lust List: September

Autumn is upon us, and after the excitement of summer has died out (along with the decent weather) I couldn’t be happier to start the transition to the cosy jumpers, thick trousers and boots that await us. In colder months I always consider myself a summer person, and vice versa by the end of “summer” so I think it’s just a ‘grass is always greener’ kind of situation. I love the variation of clothes, warm, inviting colours and the excitement of different ways of layering that come with autumn, and the anticipation for (dare I say it) Christmas!! My absolute favourite time of year without a doubt. The concept of snuggly coats and dark evenings curled up by the fire appeal to me as much as long, summer evenings spent in a beer garden soaking up the sun. However, now those days are almost gone, I’m focusing on updating my wardrobe – spoiler alert, it contains a lot of red.

Lust List: March

Spring is on the horizon and I’m so down for it. As much as I love winter’s knits and big coats I can’t wait to bare my ankles without getting frostbite and (dare I say it) maybe even reintroduce my Birkenstocks to the world. Lighter, warmer and smoother accessories can come into play and I’ve never been so ready to bask in the (cold) sun.
