Set Fire To The Rain

Jeans, Primark
Jumper, Primark
Scarf, Malaga
For a day at university, a pretty simple put together. I haven't felt great about posting pictures of myself for the last month or so, but I feel like I'm back on track and back on the ball with Chloe Likes To Talk.

Still very much in love with the colour and style of these jeans, but the fit seems to be a bit off. This is a common problem with me and jeans. These ones are a size 12. They fit just fine around my legs, I probably would struggle to get my legs into a size 10, but the waist is HUGE. I can't get them to stay up for love nor money. The application of a belt helps in a very minor way, but it means the waist band bunches up and they still don't sit quite right. I feel that Primark jeans may be another failed experiment.

Clockwise from Top Left
Scarf, from Malaga airport, I have a growing collection!
Ring, Temporary:Secretary
Belt, Primark
Ring, Antique. A gift from my grandmother who knows my love of the colour green.
I'm trying to remember and make an effort to take pictures of the other elements of outfits that are less visible in the bigger shots. I've always been a big lover of accessories because my clothing is often quite simple classic. Long time readers will know if my love of jewellery and particularly rings. It would be a particularly strange day for my to be complete bare-fingered.

I'm not going to do a full review of the E.L.F products, as I mentioned (see here) but I did just want to say how much I'm loving their Matte Lip Colours. I'm wearing Praline in the above pictures and I love the natural colours which add just a little something more. The only little criticism of these as a product is that they're a little dry, which is probably to be expected for a matte product. I get around that by applying my favourite Boots own Lipsalve (99p, Boots) before the lip colour. For £3.50 though, it's a great product for having in your handbag or for a day to day look. And if like me, you're a bit nervous of bolder lip colour and need somewhere to start, these are fantastic.

I'm well and truly into my GDL course now, with the first assessment due in the next couple of weeks and having sat my professional boards exam this week too. The  GDL is definitely challenging but I'm enjoying the challenge and like with learning a language as opposed to subjects such as History or English, it's much more about learning a skill or subject matter instead of analysing or forming opinions on events or writings. I was never very good at that type of thing so big respect to those who do it well.

I hope everybody who has started new courses, universities, returned to study or started new jobs is getting into the swing of things. It's such a period of change for so many of you, but exciting change.

The details are fab! I have to say I found the same thing with sizing until I bought my Topshop jeans, I love that you can choose the waist and leg size!
