What do you think of when you think back-to-school? In London (by way of Oxbridge) I think of traditional stooping red brick buildings, bicycles with wicker baskets (and young 'uns with wicker hats), piles and piles of dog eared text books and the sense of anticipation and excitement. When Nina Ricci got in touch to introduce me to their beautiful fragrances (me having beat them to the chase, and already been a lover- we've all seen their beautiful adverts I'm sure), they asked me to create a post around that aforementioned theme, and I knew exactly the place to visit in the capital. Although a new perfume isn't exactly like a new pencil case to most (does anyone remember that thrill?), there's always a sense of nostalgia hidden in certain scents, and this feminine and fresh scent from Nina is the perfect partner to my ultimate academic inspired look.

On top of that, to me this outfit feels a little like a belated tribute to the start of term look. When I was in sixth form I probably had a little too much fun donning a suit and loafers to school every day (if that doesn't sound lame and nerdy, I don't know what does)- and would opt for a ribbon tie n order to try and 'girlie' it up a little. I also remember Florence Welch wearing a burgundy suit way back when and falling head over heels with it's androgynous feel, so perhaps this is an ode to her and wearing a suit near enough every day for two years- I think I miss it a little...

  5. Beautiful suit, it's so wonderfully seasonal! Stationary shopping and finding the right pencil case for the year used to be one of the joys of summer, despite knowing I would lose 90% of it by Christmas!

  24. I totally love the plum color/shade of your suit! By the way, I just recently discovered your blog and it is now in my blog reads. I have to say you are one stylish and gorgeous lady. Reading your posts and seeing your pictures introduces me to what it's like living in London. I really hope that I can also visit or study there in the near future.

    Keep on inspiring all the other young ladies out there!

  26. No I Ricci is actually one of go to daytime scents! I'm really enjoying purples for A/W, getting a quirky cool vibe from the tailoring with the loafers which fits really well with the London vibe 👌😙 curiousaliceloves.wordpress.com

  29. Love this outfit! I'm all into burgundy for this time of year, and have just bought some similar burgundy trousers, but now I'm wanting a jacket to go with them and I imagine it'll be difficult to find one that matches perfectly, argh! Will have to get down to Oasis and get the full suit from them ;) At Sixth Form at my school, we still had to wear obligatory skirt/trousers with a shirt and jacket, but couldn't have fun colours like this, only black, so back-to-school for me still reminds me of that!

  30. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. http://www.robecart.com

  43. I have always *loved* the Nina scents. Most of the time at work I'll sneak a tester of this, it's so feminine and sweet and fresh, my favourite kind of perfume. I used to actually go out of my way to watch the adverts on youtube...
