WWJW: First Day Back

Hi peeps! Back again with another post! With the last weeks of summer holidays slipping away regrettably too fast, I’ve blessed you all with a mini look book.

You have to put some effort into how you dress.
Sometimes a pair of jeans and a t-shirt aren’t going to cut it.
Uni is preparing you for the real world, and if you can’t learn how to in a “safe” environment you’ll be in for a rude awakening once you’re corporate bound.
It’s all about professionalism here.
There are even students who turn up in suits, but it’s generally normal on my campus. It’s a common occurrence in semester 1 where many networking events are held, or assessment centres are attended.

Since I’ve been at uni for a full 3 years now; I’ve been able to suss out some outfits that I think would be ideal for your first day back. And no, they will not be puffer vests, with runners and a pair of leggings. That is an abomination. I won’t partake in that tomfoolery!


I don’t know what I was thinking using a text-book as a prop. BTW I’m still trying to sell it so hit me up if you’re interested!

I don’t know why I didn’t wear my Doc Marten Chelsea boots with this outfit, I wasn’t thinking. That would have been a lot more comfortable.

I really like to colour block, it makes it easier to get dressed in the morning. All I need to worry about are silhouettes. I have these trousers in 3 colours because they are so versatile!

Since I am at school and work for the majority of my week; this is basically my uniform.

I honestly think I overdress for Uni sometimes.

Before I end this post, I’d like to mention a few things to you all. As I’m approaching my final semester in University, I’d like to provide a little advice for those who are just starting their first year or to anyone really.

I would very much like to tell you all that it gets easier after VCE. I would also very much like to tell you that you’ll stress less, and it’ll be smooth sailing, but that would be deceiving.

Here’s some advice I would have given my former self:

  • Take things at your own pace; if you need take another semester to finish your course, take it.
  • If you find yourself struggling; reach out to someone.
  • Do not bite off more than you can chew, but at the same time take up as many opportunities as you can possibly handle.
  • Under-load when you need to, over-load when you have to.
  • Make an effort to stay in touch with old friends but try to make new ones too.

Admittedly, I have made my own mistakes during these few years. A large one being, not maintaining balance in my life and reaching out to people often enough. The last year has been an extremely stressful one, even more than I could ever comprehend.

But aside from all the tries and challenges, I promise you. Heck! I guarantee you, that although it will be one of the most daunting and frightening experiences in your life so far. It will be the most undoubtedly amazing years you’ll ever have!

Let me know what looks I should do next!
