pansies, dancing & university // life update

 Basque top, CUE skirt, Forever New flats, belt and coat, Novo bag

As much as the house my roomies and I live in is a bit of a hovel (kinda wishing the rats would start paying rent...), the location definitely compensates for it. One of my favourite aspects would be the little bridges around the area. They remind me of Anne of Green Gables and also home a little bit, so it's always a pleasant and nostalgic experience walking along them and escaping reality for a little bit! 
Anyway, how have you all been? Uni life has started back up again and although I feel like I'm in a constant state of TIRED, it's still a lot of fun. On Saturday night, my friends and I went to a dance at the local hall, the theme was 1940s (I skipped an era and had a more '50s inspired get-up) and it was amazing. Swing dancing is definitely something that I'm glad has made a comeback in the 21st century... it's ridiculously fun and I couldn't think of a better way to spend the night than dancing around to Elvis songs with a circle skirt and petticoat. 
A few weeks ago I also got to meet one of my blogging friends, Harlow Darling, whom I've followed for a couple of years now. The amazing thing about making friends online through blogging is that you feel like you've known each other for so much longer than you have. Harlow is definitely a kindred spirit and even more beautiful in person! 

My roommate Beatrice took these photos (and Abigail took a few too) and it was such a hilarious experience. Beatrice has such an eye for photography and "perfect lighting" so look out for more photos in future! Tonight I think we're all going to have a quiet night in with Netflix and pizza because a) I was at uni at an ungodly hour this morning until an ungodly hour in the afternoon and b) it's been a while since I've caught up on The Vampire Diaries (kinda missing Damon Salvatore and dat jawline). 
Hope you have a lovely week!
