I know that it's almost the Christmas holidays (yippee!!) but I thought I'd share some of my favourite college looks with you. I absolutely love this first outfit-a simple white shirt looks great with almost anything! I bought this one in Pennys for €10 but I plan to stud the collar with some gold studs that I picked up in a haberdashery shop in town (I'll have a step-by-step tutorial one how to do this soon!) Adding studs to something is a great way to liven up an outfit and anyway what's the point spending a fortune on a studded shirt when you can make one yourself! Cheap and cheerful :) The gold spike necklace is from New Look and it was only €9! They have some great deals on there at the moment-all jewellery is buy one get one free! I also bought a hand chain (well technically it was free) because I think they are so effortlessly pretty and they also really complete an outfit (I'll post a pic soon!).

This black velvet skater skirt is from River Island and it's definitely one of my favourite Winter pieces! Velvet has been all over the catwalks this season and this skirt would be ideal with a chunky knit for a casual laid-back look. You could also dress this up for a night out (I recently wore it with a white crop top from Topshop and some black wedges) as it's very versatile and at €22 how could you say no! The brown bucket bag is from Accessorize and I am absolutely obsessed with it!! It comes with a detachable strap so you can wear it over your shoulder or in the nook of your arm depending on your mood and how heavy your books are! These brown leather loafers are from Topshop and although they were €69 (I am a poor student!) I wear them religiously so they were a great investment.

What do you guys wear to college? Are you more of a fall-out-of-bed-throw-on-whats-on-my-floor kind of girl or do you put some thought into your outfits? My college is full of fashion-forward people so most days you have to make an effort! I'm not really a tracksuit bottoms kind of gal anyway! I'd love to know what you guys think of this look so drop me a comment :)
