Blogging in the A/W

wpid-img_20140902_084202-1.jpgWhen the days aren’t so bright it gets pretty difficult for me to be able to take decent photos for my blog. I take my photo’s inside using my phone so the quality of the image depends on how much light is coming through my bedroom window.

This works out fine in the S/S but nowadays its a bit of  a struggle. Sometimes when I’m heading out its not bright enough and then when I come back its already gone dark. I live in England and these days it’s getting dark by 4pm.

I guess all this really means is that I have to work a little harder and do my best to take advantage of the few bright hours in the day. Lately I haven’t been able to post as many outfit photos as I would like and there have been some awesome outfits you guys have missed out on.

In a couple of months I’m hoping to invest in a camera and tripod (nothing too fancy) as it would mean I can take better quality photos and also I’d be able to take photos outside.

Autumn blues

wpid-collage_20141010150235435.jpg

I haven’t blogged for 2 days which I feel quite guilty about as I usually post daily. As much as I like daily blogging sometimes I feel like I end up putting alot of pressure on myself with it. I think I might end up blogging a little less eventually but I’l let you know.

Anyway today I have an outfit post featuring a very baggy cardigan much loved by me. Its super cosy and can easily be thrown on over anything. In this outfit I paired it with high-waisted jeans and a camisole but as the weather gets colder I’ll be wearing it with roll-necks and light sweaters.

Outfits like this are perfect for chilled days when I’m hanging out with one of my sisters or doing some shopping on the high st. However I have not been shopping for what feels like ages and  I have so much that I want to buy.

That’s it for now but I should have another post up later on.

Skater skirt and black

Heyy 🙂

Its been quite a few months since I last wore this jacket. It’s not that it is too thick for summer, I just think it’s much better suited for autumn weather. Its a little oversized and great for layering. I paired it with a black vest top and a maroon skater skirt.

I quite like the pattern on the jacket and also the colours. On my nails I used Collection’s Sonic Blue which actually matches the blue on the jacket. Lastly I added a couple of silver rings which are both quite old but I got one form New Look and the other from Dorothy Perkins.

September roundup: Wandering, writing and reading

September turned out nothing like I thought would have but it was pretty good towards the end. Anyway I thought I’d just share some stuff from Pinterest to round-up last month.

Can you believe its already October!!!

Aaaaah... reading in the park, best way to spend a sunny day! by Miles Hyman

2012 version of Puberty Blues as a TV series = brilliant!

500 Greatest Albums of All Time: The Stone Roses, 'The Stone Roses' | Rolling Stone

True...so all the voice people  say i'm talking to are just people i wrote about...which are in my head...so i guess i am talking to the voices in my head, but you never know maybe I made a book character after you, so then I'm really talking to you in my head...YES.

 

I think it's important to take a small vacation maybe once or twice a year, reflect on your life and set some goals you'd like to accomplish in the near future. it takes a long time to finally figure out who you are as a person & what you really want out of life.

Some people don't come with a clear definition and are often misunderstood. They are different and undefinable.

Lastly I discovered the blog Zoe London and it is honestly so amazing that I wouldn’t believe you if you didn’t like it, so check it out!

Autumn in camisoles

wpid-img_20140929_093414.jpg

 

This is just a quick outfit post because I didn’t get to take the photos the way I usually do. Lately I’ve been really liking the combination of a camisoles with a coat. I think its a really nice combination for autumn. I love smart coats, jackets and blazers. Wearing smart outer wear is a great way to look a little more put together and take an outfit from casual to smart casual. In this outfit I’m wearing old trainers but the outfit would be perfect with some black loafers.

Looks can be deceiving

wpid-img_20140826_153803-1.jpg

So the other day I went out and it looked pretty chilly so I thought it would be a good idea to wear this cardigan from Next, turns out looks really can be deceiving as it was actually kinda warm outside. I guess that’s my own fault though as I never actually check the weather I just look outside my window.

It’s crazy to think that summers pretty much over and it’s back to school season, though not for me as I’m not going to Uni this year, for a bunch of reasons. I’m really looking forward to Autumn though as it’s my favourite season!

Snippets of the month: October

I cant believe October is over already, time flies!

Hope your October has been great, here is what I’ve been up to:

lmg-pic-0221Taking a walk in my everyday autumn/winter boots

lmg-pic-0227When I get the time I like to make my nails look interesting.

lmg-pic-0278My new necklace from Dorothy Perkins it was £10 but they had it on sale  so it only cost me £3! (BARGAIN)

 lmg-pic-0279I decided to buy an MUA nail varnish it cost £1 and the colour is called Plum Noir, its a really lovely dark berry colour. I wouldn’t  claim it as amazing quality but for what it cost I was pleased.

 

lmg-pic-0280This top hasn’t come out so great in the picture but I got it from a charity shop, not sure if I’ll actually wear it but at the time I thought it was an interesting piece.

lmg-pic-0281So I got this from h&m for £7 on sale, its original  price was £24.99 so I’m really pleased.
