Hi faithful Scotcampus.com readers and welcome to our brand new style series, Today I’m Wearing…, where myself, my fellow colleagues and a whole host of guest bloggers will be showing off exactly what we wear to go about our daily business. As editor-in-chief of Scotcampus, holding down another demanding job at District MTV to boot, fashion is a huge part of my life. Being based in London means I have access to some of the best stores, events and designers in the world, and – believe me – I take full advantage of it.
However, some days the weather throws a spanner in the works that means even I wouldn’t want to be caught tottering around in high heels and bare legs, and today was one of those days. Enter #UKStorm2013. Not only did the weather make me late for work – meaning some classic toilet selfies have had to suffice for my opening Today I’m Wearing… – but it also had me going for ultimate comfort in my classic Converse and khaki Topshop parka.
My structured black handbag from Zara is a style staple, big enough to house my MacBook, and dresses up even the most casual of rainy day outfits like this one. These Benetton jeans were a leaving present after I spent last summer interning at their Press Office; they have specially designed pockets and back panelling to make your bum look utterly peachy! Hiding underneath my parka is my current favourite jumper, a cosy angora number from H&M – I love it, but I can’t wear it with black, because annoyingly the fluff just sticks to everything. #fashiongirlproblems
Perhaps more interesting than my outfit today is my ever-faithful stash of beauty products. Known for my signature pink lipstick – which is occasionally switched up with a purple or rouge alternative – today I’m wearing MAC’s Playtime to give my casual Monday look a much-needed pop of colour. Layered on over Maybelline’s Baby Lips balm, I won’t need to reapply it all day, even after copious cans of Diet Coke.
And there you have it! Everything I’m wearing today to face the storm, write the day’s news, edit the final drafts of Scotcampus’ November issue… The list goes on. Come back tomorrow to see my Tuesday look and tweet us your own outfits @Scotcampus. We’ll pick the best to feature in our Today I’m I’m Wearing… gallery!
