what to wear on trains ♥

I took these pictures last Friday, before I went to stay with my boyfriend for a bit. I meant to post them sooner, but this week has just been about coursework, coursework, coursework! It's out of the way now & I've got two glorious weeks off now though, whew :)
I always have a bit of a dilemma about what to wear on trains -
I know it seems a bit weird, but I don't generally like to wear my usual white tights because changing at different stations & sitting in different cafes & running about (which I inevitably end up doing on my journey) runs a fairly high risk of getting them dirty. Skin coloured tights are of course an option, but often attract some unwanted attention..!
Also I feel like you should always wear more on trains, because then you have to pack less!
Anyway this is what I wore last time I went. I don't know why I went into that much detail about my decision process, but there you go :)

With the exception of the necklace, which my Mummy bought me from Accessorize, this entire outfit is from New Look! Haha, not intentional of course, but when I think about it it seems that quite a lot of my wardrobe is composed of New Look things. Not because I'm a particularly adamant fan of theirs (though they have stepped up their game lately), but I suppose that's what happens when you have a New Look right next to your school!

And speaking of school, I confirmed my university choice earlier today, so as of September this year, I'll be living in St Andrews :) Scotland! Exciting exciting exciting.

I hope you're all had a great week! I'm feeling in a bit of a funny mood due to being absolutely exhausted from coursework week, so sorry if this post is rambly! :)

Love, Holly ♥

Love that necklace :)

I always think that I'm not a massive fan of New Look, I do find it a bit hit & miss - but actually I seem to buy quite a lot from there!

I think that outfit is lovely! Haha I know what you mean about skin coloured tights attracting unwanted attention. Sometimes I think just being a girl will generally do that as well :p I dress a lot more conservative now (for the most part) b/c I got tired of all the creepers :O
