Back To School Outfit With ASOS – Then Vs. Now

 Jumper: ASOS | Pinafore dress: New Look via (similar here and here) | Boots: Schuh | Phone Case: Skinnydip London | Pictures taken at: El Lodge

Oh, GIRLS – I have some absolute crackers of #TBT images to share with you, purely for your LOLZ! When ASOS asked if I’d like to work on a ‘then and now’ university post – I had to do it, just so I could rummage through some snaps circa 2011 and share them all with you!

The aim is to show you what kind of things I was wearing during my first year of uni, and if I could rewind back to that time, what I’d wear now! So, first off let’s start with what I was wearing back then, now, I don’t think my style was awful it’s just so funny to look back at old pictures (and weep at how long my hair was/how skinny I was – *le sigh!).

So let’s kick off with my first year of university outfits, now I’m going to be completely honest here, whilst going through my Facebook pictures it was so hard to find a picture where I wasn’t drunk or partying (standard!) so here’s what I’ve rustled up, some snaps in NYC, to summer days and nights out with my girlfriends!…

And if I could rewind to my first year of uni, the kind of thing I’d love to wear is this super cute ASOS pinafore dress, as uni starts in September it’s the perfect colour for fall dressing and looks cute paired with tights and boots. You can layer it over a nice blouse, roll neck or chunky knit jumper – it’s such a versatile piece and great value too! If you’re looking to update your back to school wardrobe then definitely check out the cute backpacks on ASOS to be stylish and practical!

SHOP THE POST (new outfit not old ones, SOZ!):

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

    I love this idea! I always cringe when I look at old photos, but you look fab! That sweep fringe tho, 😉 we all had it! I love your outfit now too, the pinafore is so cute and very autumnal and great casual outfit for uni and the jumper goes great and looks so cosy!
