Little lights in our hearts

Hello darlings! I am sorry it has been awhile again, it's just been so so manic. I can't believe I've only been back at uni for two weeks, it feels more like two decades with the workload I've been managing. I'm feeling very excited and slightly daunted by this academic year. It's my final year before I officially become a teacher and thinking about the future has me a little anxious. I've also got some extra responsibilities this year at uni because I have taken on a committee role for one of the sports teams, so it's all busy, busy, busy!

Anyway, I have begun to slip into Autumn fashion over the last few weeks; cue tartan, plaid, tweed and rich tones and colours. I think my favourite trend of Autumn/Winter are the adorable little squares of tartan and plaid. The cosy, blanket-reminiscent fabric has been seen to be a key piece on the catwalks of Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs, some of the most uber-cool designers. I actually got this black and white plaid dress from Ark (no surprise) in Spring, showing that this style can be worked throughout the seasons, using the right accessories. As I was going for a look that would transition well from Summer to Autumn, I chose to pair the dress with a denim jacket and jellies (a popular item of the summer) to still maintain some of the Summer fun! I hope you enjoy the pics and let me know what you think!

I also made a video to go with the outfit post. Check it out!
