Alas, Summer is almost over.

Although that means the end of British heatwaves and that the ice cream man is embarking on a career change, it also means the majority of young people are heading back to school, college or university.

My student days are long since over but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the 'fresh start' we can all make when September rolls around. A new wardrobe is one way of embracing the season, and a bit of retail shopping is always welcome come pay day. PrettyLittleThing have a whole section on their website dedicated to Student Style and I picked out some of my favourite bits for them to send me, perfect for that study (and student night) life.

First up, this tee and skirt combo. Slogan tees are all the rage but the simple heart tee caught my eye. I love a classic white tee because I wear a LOT of denim and it's a very easy thrown together outfit.

The skirt is my favourite item from this haul to be honest, because since I grabbed a high waisted version from a vintage fair earlier in the year, I have a new found love for them. This option has the stripe detailing, making it a much more modern version for my wardrobe and how nice does it go with the t-shirt?!

Nothing shouts 'back to school' like the sudden weather change in Autumn.

This week is the first for a long time which has hit below 15 degrees and I'll be honest with you, it's probably only going to get cooler. Whether you're heading out to the pub on an evening or you just need a large coffee before your 9am lecture, this borg jacket has you covered.

It's a cropped style, making it perfect to pair with a pair of jeans or a statement skirt and it's really bloody cosy. I chose some amazing value black trainers to pair with the whole outfit, added a cheeky latte - caramel is the only option - and I am ready to get shit done.

If this is your first year at university I want to wish you a huge GOOD LUCK. You'll be fine, you've got this. If you'd like to read about my own first year experience, check out this blog post here. And if you need some Fresher's tips? Read this one too.

Hopefully you have some school/college/uni inspiration for what to wear and PLT have plenty to choose from. It's all budget-friendly and they even offer 10% student discount, so even your bank account (complete with student loan) can't complain. Let me know over on Instagram if you grab any bargains, and remember to share with the hashtag #PrettyLittleThing !
