This love will be your downfall..

Okay I know I said I wouldn't be doing another post until I had settled in at uni, but I really love this blog and I couldn't put it aside. Also; while I was packing all my clothes for moving out I started coming up with some lovely outfit ideas.

I have packed way too many things for uni; I said to myself I was only going to take clothes according to season, but as I was going through my wardrobe I was convincing myself that 'yes, I will need to take a tartan cape with me' haha! Currently, I have two suitcases filled to the brim with clothing, and I still have things I need (I say need but I'm probably being melodramatic) to put in! With all my stuff being squashed in these suitcases, I have been living in electric blue jeans and an adorable striped jumper. My generous mother bought me these the other day as I claimed I 'needed' (yes that word again) more clothes. The jeans are rather bright for a girl myself who is usually found wearing cream, chiffon dresses and blouses, but with starting uni, getting a fresh start, I feel like my style should be developing too. Have a gander at the pictures anyway..

You had a fun summer, but it's suddenly colder..

This is probably one of the last posts I will do before I'm off to uni. Of course I will try my best to keep this blog going while I'm there, but I will have a lot of settling in and organizing to do before I can concentrate on my hobbies. It's a very strange feeling, leaving behind all your bonds and ties to a certain place, but at the same time the prospect of living on my own and meeting new people is extremely exciting. The title of this blog post is taken from the song Family Friend by the Vaccines. The lyrics totally describe how I'm feeling at the moment; daunted by change. I know once I get to uni I will have the time of my life, it's just sad to leave behind what you're used to, and what you love.

At the weekend I went camping (yes, again!!). It was in celebration of my aunts birthday, so we had a lovely time staggering from pub to pub in a little town called Masham. If you ever get a chance, I strongly recommend you give it a visit because it is beautifully quaint, and the people are so welcoming. Masham is a place close to my heart as I've been there many times for family gatherings. This is another thing that I am finding quite disheartening, that I won't be seeing as much of my family, as I am moving on with my life. Don't get me wrong, that's great. I have been itching for independence, it's just hard to get my head around that my life is taking a new, thrilling turn.

Anyway, enough of that hah! I have been thinking (probably too much, and too far in advance) about autumn looks. My inspiration for this look was, strangely enough, Liam Gallagher! I was listening to Oasis on my Ipod. These photos were taken this weekend while I was camping. I wasn't even planning on getting any photos done, but I just woke up one morning with one of the greatest outfit ideas.

Jacket: vintage
Ramones top: vintage
Belt: New Look
 Jeans: New look
Boots: Primark
Sunglasses: Topshop
Bag: H&M

I think the sunglasses and the moody expression totally perfect the look haha!
