5 Day Style Challenge Day 2

I’ve been good today and finished all my Greek for tomorrow, and done some Latin for Thursday too, so I decided I would do a post a little earlier than usual, yay! =D I did want to take my pictures in the snow, but I have no one (or no tripod!) to take them, so it’s still the kitchen for me.
So I had an idea (well, actually Charlotte had the idea and I copied it!) of doing a style challenge, but only a 5 day one, to wear this t-shirt 5 different ways. You can see my first day, yesterday here. As I mentioned yesterday, this is actually a t-shirt I bought for Ben but it didn’t fit him so I stole it =D.

Beret: Primark
Striped T-shirt: Primark (men’s)
Navy Dress: La Redoute
Waist Belt: Topshop
Green Tights: Primark
Studded Heels: New Look

Okay, so I was bored and decided to play around a bit with the different settings on my camera hee hee. The first photos are just normal, the two above are vivid coloured and there are more settings below =) And I know I’m not really going to wear these shoes outside today, still under 8 inches of snow, but I like them and they look pretty with my outfit =). And at least in these photos you can tell my tights actually are green!!

The last two are forest mode. I don’t know why that makes them blurry, but it does! I quite liked them as photos though haha!
So this afternoon I’ve got note taking at 5pm, and I’m planning on going in a bit early because I have heard of a vintage shop and a retro shop in Newcastle that I previously didn’t know existed!! They’re on a completely random street that I didn’t even know existed either! Well I sort of knew there was a street there but I thought it was just a backstreet, so I’m possibly planning on having a look, maybe not though because this street is on a steep hill that I usually take the bus up, so I don’t want to be sliding around everywhere! I need to pop into Waitrose for some eggs and breadcrumbs though, so I’m thinking while I’m there I might go to Primark because I want some new tights and I saw a dress on TV this morning which was really nice and apparently from there, so I’m going to investigate!!

And, obviously, we’ve got black and white mode here, and “retro” mode, I quite like that one, but most of the pictures didn’t turn out very well on it because I was pulling weird faces haha!
I should really wear this dress more, it’s very versatile and brilliant for layering, but I always forget I have it! I don’t hang it up like I do with most dresses and it’s just in with my tops, maybe I should hang it up to remember about it.
Anyway, I’m going to get some lunch now and do a bit more work before I go to town, I’m going to try and get as ahead as possible as I can with my work because I’ve been a bit snowed under (sorry, terrible pun!!) with it at the moment, so I’m going to do as much as I can while I’ve got the time.
