14 Again


I didn’t manage to get many good photos of this outfit today – I haven’t worked out a good outfit photo taking place at home yet, plus my hands were freezing, so I didn’t get many!! Also my dog thought I was burglar and came out barking at me half way through so I ended up with a batch of me laughing and falling out of the screen while she jumped on me!!
Anyway, it’s pretty much my official first day of the Christmas holidays today – yesterday didn’t count because my sister wasn’t finished yet, so I’ve decided it’s today!! Despite that, I’ve actually been pretty busy. I’ve decided to apply to Durham University for an MA in Museum and Artefact Studies. I originally wanted to do Conservation of Archaeological and Museum Objects, but that requires a qualification higher than GCSE in Chemistry, which unfortunately I don’t have…no one told me 5 years ago that I’d want it!! So I could take a year out to do the AS in it, or I could do a short course which would be at the exact time of my final exams. Since the course is 2 years anyway, I don’t want to leave it 3 years until I’m done with education by taking a year out, and I don’t want to risk my finals by putting extra pressure on with this short course, so museum studies it is!! That one actually suits what I want to do a lot better, but the Conservation course had a 9 month placement in a museum, and that museum could be in Williamsburg, Virginia, which is one of my favourite places in the world…we visited there a few years ago, and I just loved it. But I can always go back =)

If you’re wondering why the title of this post is ’14 Again’, take a look at the shirt I’m wearing. While I was up in Newcastle, I started thinking up outfits that would be awesome with a white collared shirt, but kept realising I didn’t own one. I don’t own many collared shirts, except ones I wore at school and I’m pretty reluctant to pick those up again. But when I came home, I decided to take a look in my cupboard and saw this shirt. I then looked at the label to realise it was a kid’s Age 14 one!! Then I remembered it was the one I wore at school from ages 11-13 and haven’t worn it since!! Well, it still fits, and I now have several outfits planned for it!
Jumper: Primark
Shirt: M&S (very old!)
Jeans: Topshop
Boots: George at ASDA
Also, I managed to shrink this jumper!! I kind of wanted to because it was too big and sort of hung on me, so it went through a couple of hotter-than-it-should-have-been washes. And it shrunk!! I just didn’t anticipate the arms shrinking too, they’re pretty tight although I managed to stretch those out again…nevermind!! I also wanted to wear this with darker jeans, but they’re in Newcastle because I haven’t brought everything down yet, we’re going up tomorrow to get the rest.
I have a surprise coming up for you tomorrow, so look out for that!! All of today that I didn’t spend working on my application and taking outfit photos, I was working on the surprise, so I hope you like it =D

    Thanks so much for stopping by and joining my blog! I’m so pleased that you liked the dress. I love classic, vintage and feminine pieces like that. I think it’s hilarious that you haven’t worn a white button up since you were a teenager! Isn’t it great when we rediscover little gems like that?

    Thanks again!

    I love that the sweater is a bit too short!! It looks great with the button up underneath. Such a great casual look.
