Seems a little weird to be featuring all of these autumnal goodies when we’re experiencing a late Indian summer in England this week! As I type, I’m dressed in a simple sundress and am sat lounging about in the cool comfort of my living room, a Harry Potter film on in the background. You can always rely on the British weather to do the complete opposite of what is expected, that’s for sure.
I spied this gorgeous hooded cardigan on the H&M website when browsing for pieces to style for my Ways to Wear feature this week. It looks a bit blah in the stock image, but if you click through to the item online, the model shows the cardigan in all it’s slubby, cosy glory. I might brave West Quay on Saturday and search for this! Also seen the Karma knitted jumper at Monki that I really must have in my autumn wardrobe: I’m going to London on Friday to meet the Boohoo team and see their showroom, so will probably have a quick look in Selfridges on my way back for it. I am yet to splurge on Monki goodness, so if I do go and spy this blouse, I’m probably going to pick that up as well.
I haven’t been particularly excited by New Look recently if I’m honest, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this skirt in my local branch’s window, at a bargainous price of £9.99. The colour means I can get away from throwing something simple and black on, and still feel relatively dressed up enough for the day. Included the dalmatian Kurt Geigers just because they are gorgeous, £195 is not student-friendly unfortunately, I’m dithering between Miss Selfridge loafers and Topshop loafers to replace my battered Primark ones, and these heart ones are slowly winning in my eyes.
Packing is going well, now that I’ve buckled down and made a start. It’s my third time of doing this exact same packing routine, so I can get it done within three hours without distractions. Anyway, wrapping up now, I’m going to swoon over Rupert Grint some more, sort out my laundry and mourn the fact that I finished watching Drunken to Love You this morning! xo
