Last days of summer

Me and my friend Sunny went on a trip to the Fitzwillaim museum in Cambridge today; I had honestly been wanting to go for ages. I was pretty giddy this morning before we went, excited doesn't even explain it. I love museums and just exploring new buildings, architecture and generally looking at lots of amazing art is so peaceful- especially since museums are so quiet. 

Please excuse how unused to the camera I look, this was the first time I have had outfit photos taken in public, hopefully it'll get better in time!! It got up to about 18°C so turned out to be a beautiful day. It's really awkward finding the right outfit for this time of year since I have to wake up early for college and it's freezing cold but by midday its really warm. Though this morning I just threw a jumper over this outfit and bared the cold on my toes for a few hours.

I got this top on my summer uniform this year and I really like it, it's not something that I probably would've bought with my own money, but I like how minimal the pattern is and the slits up the side were a RI statement back in the summer so I joined the bandwagon on that one. My jeans are my mums old ones but I've taken them in slightly and given them a raw edge - mostly because I'm fed up of seeing all my jeans rolled up since I'm so damn short legged aahhhh.

Silver lining

This morning me and my parents left the house to travel into London for Middlesex open day, unfortunately after being on campus for 5 minutes I realised that it wasn't for me- It was one of those strange feelings where it just didn't feel right. We ended up leaving before the talk and going to the Hatfield galleria outlet shopping centre and having a fab day out. I found a beautiful mustard tote bag and I didn't buy it, the regret is real (heart cracks into two). By half 1 I was starving so ended up eating in Bella Italia and had Cannelloni Ricotta which was pasta filled with spinach and let me tell you it was amazing! It just goes to show that every cloud does have a silver lining, even though I didn't like the uni, I had a great day out in London and made some more memories.

As for the outfit; I'm absolutely in love with this jacket, as soon as I saw this at work I just had to have it. It's pretty lightweight and is perfect for upcoming autumnal weather and layering over any daytime outfit. While in Primark the other day I saw these square hoop earrings, they were such a bargain for only £1 and have worn them everyday since.

September buy's

I am extremely excited for autumn, to me its the perfect time of year; not too cold and not too hot. 
I'm ready for cozy nights in, (like I didn't do that anyway lol), firework night and just enjoying a new season for what it is. Not to mention that the trees turning yellow and orange is just beautiful-am I right?

I always think outfits look so effortless yet well put together when you've just thrown on about a dozen layers. I've been a little more concious recently about what I've been buying and if I'll actually get enough use out of it. I've recently-ish discovered depop which has been a godsend as I've managed to sell lots of my un-worn clothes and have made some money to re-vamp my wardrobe. Luckily for me I also get free uniform at work every season, hence the kimono top and pleather skirt (two thumbs up and a fist pump for that!)
