6th October; Pin Stripes

Top and skirt- Vintage
Shoes- Vegabond
Earrings- Topshop

The weather has officially turned, I'm sure I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) because when ever the sky is grim and grey I feel mopey and don't want to do anything. And then I end up online shopping which is a whole other problem..sigh. However, I'm very pleased with this cute lil rainbow roll neck, even if it isn't particularly flattering on me :(

Inspiration is lacking for me recently, I'm looking for new blogs, designers, artists, ANYTHING creative and different, so please comment if there's anything new you've been loving lately!!

Sun Down

Shirt- American Apparel 
Skirt- Vintage
Boots- Spy Love Buy
Necklace- CSM x Topshop
Sunglasses- Topshop

You know when you're feeling fab in an outfit, and then on photos you're like "nah"? Yeah, that's how I feel. I blame the blinding sun for making me all squinty (hence the sunglasses). I'm also not friends with my hair at the moment, it refuses to do anything, meaning it probably needs a trim! I wish I had enough money to have a pamper week where I just sorted out my beauty routine (which is basically none existent). 

I'm not in the best of moods this week because I stupidly lost my purse at the weekend in London which literally had my entire life in it!! So it's stressful trying to replace all my cards/having to pay for new ones! I even lost my train tickets so had to call the parentals to pick me up...not the image of sophistication I was going for.

23rd September; Rainbow

Top- Unif 
Jeans- Vintage
Shoes- Vegabond

This is one of those days where i'm wearing all my new things at once. But they all go perfectly together, especially the top and jeans! This top is my first piece of Unif, a brand I'm obsessed with but don't own anything else as A) I am a student and can't afford it and B) it seems to be hard to find in the UK- and I've learnt my lesson with buying stuff overseas (that lovely surprise tax once it arrives in the country- cheers royal mail). It was pretty expensive even in the sale at Urban Outfitters but I just bit the bullet and spent my wages. This is the first time in ages i've worn jeans on my blog? I actually wear jeans a lot just as a casual outfit for work, but i never feel very "fashionable" in them? Does anyone know what i mean? I think i just feel these are a statement jean because they're so bright, so add to the outfit. And to complete the mix i threw in my new Vagabond "milkshake" beauties, I'm in love. I've always had a love of Vagabond, and in a spontaneous moment ordered these off ASOS in the sale (see, I'm a sucker for the sale). 

In other news, I'm off to London this weekend to do some art gallery visiting and Shoreditch milling, it's been about 6 months since I moved out of the big city and after being relieved to have left, I'm finally starting to miss certain parts. That's what I find about London- in thought its this cool exciting place to live- which I admit it was- but when you're there everyday in the hustle and bustle you kind of feel like you need a break every evening after battling rush hour. So it will be nice to visit as tourist and not a resident!

19th September; Spirit of Fashion Week

Cardigan- ASOS
Skirt- Forever 21
Boots- Spy Love Buy
Body suit- New Look

I'm not at fashion week. I probably should be- considering I'm studying the field- but I'm not. Although the last LFW was chaos when I was interning so I've been scared away by pill-popping models and rat dogs (not even an exaggeration this actually happened). It would be nice to be in the audience though, watching and not behind the scenes before the glamour...well a girl can dream right? But anyway I feel this outfit is a particularly fashion week-esque ensemble, mostly just because of the pom pom cardigan. I'm sure you've all seen this cardigan floating around the internet, it became the "it" thing to have in the blogging world a couple of months ago. I think it's the most money I've ever spend on a piece of clothing, but I don't regret it! It was one of those pieces that I knew I'd regret it if I didn't buy it. I'm still in love with these boots, so expect to see them featured a lot on the blog this season. 

Hope everyones having a lovely weekend, anyone moving to uni this weekend good luck!!

16th September; Designer Trippy

Shirt- Vintage Diane Von Furstenberg 
Skirt- ASOS
Shoes- Zara
Earrings- New Look

How cool/trippy/smooth is this DVF shirt I picked up in a vintage shop?! Super cool. It's actually got little figures of people all over it but the photos are making my eyes go funny. It kind of reminds me of a rugby top with its jersey collar and cuffs, but it means its comfy to lounge around in too- plus its designer so how can any of those things be bad?!I'm trying to make the most of the non-freezing weather, i.e getting away with bare legs and revealed toes for as long as possible, I fear 'tis the season to wear tights will be very soon. 

I'm all for getting cosy for winter, however I find it so difficult to dress nice and fashionable in winter! I don't know why, maybe because layers + photos equals low self esteem. And one of my favourite things to wear is mini skirts, which of course you can't get away with in winter without tights- a given outfit ruiner. Any good tips to still have fun and funky outfits in the winter?

9th September; Marine vibes

Shirt- Vintage
Boots- Spy Love Buy

A simple outfit, but does it need much else? Not really. The boots are a statement in themselves- I've been after some knee high strippaaa boots for at least a year and the other week I finally ordered myself a pair. And I regret nothing, I luuuuuuuurve them *heart eyes emoji*. Only thing I'll say is they come up a bit big on me, I'm usually a 5-6 in shoes, so I ordered a 5 and they're too big so I've put an insole in them, but it's not made much difference. However they're still wearable and no way am I giving them up!! I'd never actually heard of Spy Love Buy before, but I was researching knee highs and where sold them for the best price, and they were £10 cheaper than Public Desire (I've used PD before I didn't think much to their shoes, and I knew that their knee highs would be the exact same brand as these because they don't make their own shoes). As for the shirt, another Depop find...that app is dangerous to me because it means I can just scroll my phone and the next thing I know I've bought 3 jumpers, a skirt and a plane ticket to Panama (exaggerating but you get the gist). The colours in this skirt are gorgeous though, and it's been hand dyed with batik- something i consider an art after trying it on my art foundation course and spilling hot wax all over the floor. It's a long shirt but I wore a plain jersey mini skirt underneath just in case the wind got involved. 

Feel like I've written an essay today, for the first time in a while I feel blog-motivated!

5th September; Silver Pleats

Top- Topshop
Skirt- Topshop Unique 
Shoes- Zara

For some reason blogging has become something of a chore to me lately? I find this sometimes, like I'll sit here with no idea what to write without sounding boring. It's probably because- let's face it- summer is now over and its gradually getting chilly. How is it September already?! I know a year can fly by fast but this just seems to have gone strangely quick...maybe because I spent half of it interning in London. Anyway, talking outfits, how amazing is this Sunray skirt by Unique?! It was reduced from £85 to £20, and I'm a sucker for a good bargain, plus its pleat-y and shiny and just ahhhh dreamy. The down side is its a size too big so I cant wear it high waisted like its supposed to be (hence disguising it with a sweatshirt). 

Happy weekend!
