You and I, we were born to die...

Top - Realitee at Topshop
Shorts - Iridescent 
Bracelet - Pandora
Crystal Necklace - Urban Outfitters
Wishbone Necklace - Macys

I'm hoping to deliver on my New Year' Resolutions this time and actually do more outfit posts! I really wanted my blog to focus on these and now having my new camera makes such a difference to the quality and ease of taking pictures - I've also found a good background in my house! It's all a bit of a christmas miracle, so here's to many more regular outfit posts!
I just want to start by saying that I'm in love with these shorts! The studs are applied by hand and with a bit of distress on the denim and extra length on the back to cover your bum, they're perfect - I can't wait to see any other designs Amy will come up with at Iridescent! I have my eye on the light denim shorts with the round studs...they'd be awesome for summer. I thought I'd team these studded shorts with a new favourite t-shirt of mine, it's quite simple but I've been looking for something like it for ages and it goes with everything!
Getting to wear new clothes that I bought/received over the holidays to college is actually going to be a highlight of my week...I have 2 English exams (one on Friday 13th!!), a possible french mock and my maths exam results will be given out on Thursday...oh the joy.

I hope you're all having a great week!

Love Ellen xx
