You can tell it’s Autumn now, the mornings are bitterly cold. When I get up for uni my breath mists in the air in front of me, waiting for the train is torture. But it does mean I can bring out my more autumnal/winter pieces.
These amaze booties were from Primark years ago in the sale, and have lasted and lasted. The leopard coat is even older. I’ve probably had it over 10 years. OMG!
For someone who loves shopping as much as I do, you might not know that I’m reluctant to shop at the change of the season. I could buy something that won’t transition to next year or all us fashionistas will end up looking the same. There really is a fine balance.
Like my new tote bag? A massive Lulu Guinness bag for uni. Lulu Guinness is up there with my fave brands of all time. I’m a proper LG junkie. A friend of mine got to model for LG and I was so jealous and proud.
How are you preparing for Autumn and Winter? Anyone want to get a pumpkin/gingerbread latte with me?

Tailored items are a winner when it comes to pulling an outfit together. The age old, ‘throw a blazer on’ has been all over the internet and fashion realms. Tailoring is great to give your silhouette definition. A piece that’s sometimes over looked is the shirt. More importantly the mens shirt worn on a more feminine frame.
European styling at it’s finest. An Italian tan leather jacket off set by some light blue mom jeans, and classic leopard print block heels.

I wouldn’t say I was a vintage expert, but I do know a thing or two about bargain hunting. My most recent bargain is this vintage Ralph Lauren mens shirt. I love over sized shirts and spotted this one a mile off. If you saw on my Insta stories you’d have seen me trying out how to wear it. The prep look is something I can easily pull together with a subtle jumper over a shirt. As soon as the sun is out you can best believe that this shirt will be worn with shorts and sunglasses. Sat on a beach somewhere, hopefully with a drink in my hand.

I celebrated my 22nd birthday with my lovely sister and great friend Hangqing, by going to Wagamama, it’s definitely one of my favourite places to eat. I try and order something different every time.
It’s clear that the ramen went to our heads! We headed off to Sprinkles for an ice cream coma, but no one should ever have to see those photos.
