It has been a while since I last picked up my laptop and wrote a blog post, and I do feel rusty whilst doing so. In honest truth it was the very last thing on my mind. Over the past few months I faced a series of unfortunate events mostly involving my university status. I don't wish to delve into it too much as lamenting about what could have been doesn't really aid the situation. I have retuned to Manchester for good whilst waving goodbye finally to Istanbul. As dismayed as I am by the sudden turn of events, I don't believe I've returned empty handed from my experience; even though one of my degrees was discontinued I still have a degree in psychology, I have been blessed to have formed lifelong friendships with some of the most awesome people I have ever met, and lastly I feel I truly came out of my shell over the course of my abroad experience. Living alone in a unfamiliar city meant that I had to work many things out for myself in result making me a self reliant, resilient person. I don't have many regrets about my decision to study abroad and I'm ready for the next chapter of my life.
Enough about me though, what have you all been up to in my absence?!
Today's outfit post is set in Dunham Massey which I felt was complementary to the look I was going for as it was inspired by the early 20th century. The high-necked, ruffled, Victorian-esque blouse tucked into the black velvet skirt echoes the style of women's clothing in the early 1900s with a contemporary twist to it. I'm not very accustomed to wearing skirts that hit my ankles but I must say it definitely makes me feel very ladylike and sophisticated. As someone who is a deviant to trends and tends to avoid them, I have to admit that the velvets, ruffles and embroidery designs trending at the moment screams me all over and has me totally on board.
