Top, H&M; Shorts, River Island; Tights, Miss Selfridge; Rings, Primark and Dolly Bow Bow.

Firstly, an apology for not posting yesterday! I would love to be able to tell you a long-winded story about some manic adventure, but honestly, my First Day Back was quite uneventful: lecturers are all a bit crazy but lovely, the semester looks... challenging, shall we say?! Oh and my campus card photo still looks awful! Today's lot of lectures went okay though, my Fashion Styling unit looks amazing, I'm so excited to get to grips with it all!

After much effort not to ladder several pairs of tights, today I wore my khaki striped H&M top again, high waisted shorts to make it look a bit more fitted and my trusty cable knit (?) tights. I did change into 15 denier sheer black tights, ribbed cream socks and my shearling boots, under Abby's guidance, but decided it'd be too warm and changed back. All this for my first fashion styling lecture!

I've indulged in some new purchases this week that will probably crop in outfit posts over the next few weeks, hence the lack of Wednesday Want this week, as I've just gone out and bought without a second thought! I really have to curb my spending from next week, I've got planned two trips into London over the weekend and a night out with the Writing Fashion and Culture gals on Sunday night!

Finally, a huge thank you to all my followers! I reached 400 over Blogger alone yesterday and had the hugest grin on my face ever. In true me style, I celebrated with a mug of coffee, some sneaky choccys and my dressing gown ;) I will be doing some sort of giveaway when I have the time and money, so keep your eyes peeled! Also, a huge congrats to my housemate Rebecca who hit the big 5-0 this week (follower-wise, that is!), she's currently running a giveaway, so be sure to enter that!
