Winter favorites: Zara blanket scarf & Primark knitted dress

My exams are finished, and since crossing the finish line I’ve been working non-stop on my thesis. It feels good to be reading/writing something else than educational papers! I had to take five exams, but didn’t make a crucial deadline for one, meaning I have to re-take the assignment and orally defend it later on in the year. I’m was a bit bummed about it, but my other four exams felt good so I got over it. Fingers crossed for good grades! I should get them in the first week of February.
Tomorrow I leave for Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Glasgow. I’ve always had it big for Scotland, but until now neither my boyfriend or my friends shared my love. Needless to say I am super excited to go! I saved a little budget for shopping, but we’re mainly going just do to a whole lot of nothing. Walking, a few of the main attractions and hopefully some high tea are all we have planned. Our flight leaves late in the evening from Amsterdam, so I happily took the opportunity to enjoy a day in A’dam too. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for decent weather and can’t wait to share about these new-to-me cities (I’ve been to Amsterdam once before, but it’s been a while!).

    Scotland is awesome. I hope you have a wonderful time! Hooray for being almost done with school too. I definitely don’t miss the constant reading of academic articles though I find myself browsing them in my free time now. Apparently I’m a nerd! 🙂

    Anyway, you look great here. That dress looks so versatile and I love it with your plaid scarf. Looking cute as always!

    You look so cute in that grey dress! 🙂

    Glad your exams are over, shame about that one you have to re-take the assignment for but I’m sure you’ll pass it with flying colours! 🙂

    A trip is a great idea to celebrate the end of your exams too! Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful photos, have fun! 🙂

    You look amazing as always Nikki! That dress is to die for! I bet it’d look great with some burgundy colored tights as well to match that gorgeous scarf. I hope you have a fabulous trip!

    Dat kleedje is echt zoooo mooi! En het staat heel goed met die bruine tinten. Die sjaal zou trouwens ook niet misstaan in mijn kast 😉

    Héééél veel plezier op al je tripjes! (Ik ben een beetje jaloers)

    I’m jealous of the trip- have fun (that sweater dress will be perfect for the Highlands, right?)

    Good luck on your remaining exam!
