Who are we to tell ourselves that we're misunderstood..

Hello lovelies! I have been very busy recently and I cannot believe I've actually found time to do a post! I am just getting to grips with the workload of my course, and it's bloody hard! I'm working on two essays at the moment; even though they're not due in for quite some time I am stressing.

So, as you can guess, I've not had much time to think about my blog. On top of that, I'm really lacking inspiration these days. I think it's just because it's that dreary time of year in-between the summer and Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I do love Autumn and Winter; there's so much going on; the fair, halloween, bonfire night etc.. and the prospect of snow gets me very excited. I just feel that there is little room for innovation in fashion during these cold months because the main purpose of your clothes is to keep you warm. Despite saying this, I have seen some of the cutest jumpers and wooly leggings about in the shops! However, now that I am a student I have only been able to afford one little shopping  spree. I got a beautiful, slouchy jumper from Primark yesterday, and seriously, I don't think I've taken it off since! I accidently picked up a size 20 which is wayyyy too big, but I kinda like how oversized it is (in other words there is more material to keep me warm haha). Anyway, have a gander (:

Seasons come and go..

Is it really October 1st? The weather in England at the moment certainly doesn't seem to agree with that statement. I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by! I guess for most people my age it's been a busy year; taking their A-levels, moving out, starting uni and a new life. I think I'm starting to get used to living away from home, and surprisingly, I have not blown my student loan on clothes...yet!

The wardrobe in my room is way too small. I went home this weekend and collected some clothes that I wanted for uni. Where am I going to put them? I've already had to buy storage boxes to put my overflow of blouses into!!! I never knew I had this much stuff!! Anyway, when I went back to my hometown I finally managed to get some photos done (after much frustration). The outfit in these photos is not very seasonal but the weather has been sooo good that I had to throw on something summery or else I would seriously over heat! However, I'm trying to be more experimental with my posts and use a interesting range of props.
