This week’s outfit is very autumn inspired and is from Topshop
. I hardly ever buy anything from Topshop. In fact, the few items I have from there are pieces of jewellery. Everything’s a bit to pricey for me, however that doesn’t stop me scouring the website weekly for inspiration. Autumn is my favourite season. I love the colours the leaves turn just before they fall off the trees, I love the excited feeling you get when you’re going back to school/college/uni.. oh, and my birthday just so happens to be at the beginning of October!
At the top of my ‘Autumn/Winter clothes lust list’ is a chunky knit jumper. I love this white aran cable jumper
, it will go with absolutely anything and looks so cosy and warm. I could see myself living in this once it starts to get colder. It’s also a very classic piece of clothing.. it will never look outdated as it’s so simple.
I adore these unusual embroidered shorts
, the berry red colour is just right for autumn and look at that embroidery! They remind me of a traditional Bavarian costume
. These would look great with a pair of black tights during the colder months and they are very versatile so would also be perfect in the summer with a a white or cream sheer blouse and a pair of sandals.
What is it with me and tan shoes? Maybe it’s because the sole is hanging off my tan ankle boots and I’m looking to replace them.. or maybe I just have a bit of a tan shoe addiction! These suede lace ups
are lovely and go with the shorts and jumper perfectly. They smarten the outfit up a bit and again, they will go with anything!
All of these items come to exactly £100. I won’t be buying them, but I’ll certainly be looking out for cheaper versions in stores such as Primark and New Look!
Are you looking forward to autumn? What will be in your autumn wardrobe?
Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you.. my new shop!
Yep, that’s right.. I’m now one of those bloggers with a shop. I’ve been selling jewellery on eBay over the past few months and I’ve been quite successful. Unfortunately, the fees and hassle you get really isn’t worth it so I decided to move over to bigcartel! At the moment, I only have rings on there but once things start selling out I will have a few necklaces as well. I have a lot of stock that I couldn’t list but eventually I will upgrade so I can list more items at once and have promo codes.
All of my items are affordable and fashionable with reasonable postage, so why not pop over and have a look? My personal favourite is the owl face ring which I’ve received a lot of compliments on. I’ve seen them in places such as Accessorize for £8, it’s only £3.50 in my shop!

I didn’t do much today, I’m so tired from the weekend! My parents left my house at around 9:30 this morning to go to the Isle of Wight on holiday. I’m so jealous but I’m getting the ferry over there on Wednesday and we’ll be going to The Garlic Farm
, one of my favourite places on the island! After a bacon and egg sandwich and a vanilla latte, I walked down to uni to pay them some money I owed and then carried on into town to get toilet roll and washing powder. Such an exciting day! After the stress of giving uni so much of my hard earned cash (okay, it was only £40) I thought I deserved a treat so I got myself a Shakeaway
.. turkish delight with extra ice cream. Yummy!
I love this playsuit. I spotted it when I worked in Primark but I didn’t really want to pay £13 for it (bloody student!) but I managed to get it the day I left for a fiver! This is only the second time I’ve worn it but I love the shape and the 80s vibe. I got a couple of funny looks today, although that might have been due to the massive cardigan I was wearing rather than the playsuit. I was really hot but couldn’t be bothered to carry the cardi as it’s so big!
I’ve got a busy week ahead.. tomorrow I’m off to Southampton to meet some people off a forum I post on, Wednesday I’m going to the Isle of Wight and then I’m working Thursday – Sunday. I was supposed to be doing a 4 week excavation as part of my uni course, starting today but I didn’t realise it was optional so I’ve chosen to do another module instead as my back is playing up recently. I only made the decision on Friday but luckily I managed to pop into work and bag myself 50 hours over the next two weeks. The money will come in handy for Freshers Week!
I hope everyone’s got a good week planned. The weather is supposed to be a bit rubbish for the next few days down here, boo!
