August is already coming to an end, meaning my move to the new house and back to Uni for my last, first semester is fast looming. I took a flying visit back to Southampton on Thursday to move a few things in, pick up my keys and spend the day in the city with my brother and sister. We went to Harry Ramsden's for lunch, had some ice-cream and a play with some new phones in town, and then to one of the parks.

(Top, Uniqlo;
Skirt, H&M;
Cardigan, Hong Kong;
Tights, Wolford;
Brogues, Primark;
Rings, Primark and c/o Boho Boho;
'Alexa' bag, Mulberry.)

I wore this casual outfit for moving shenanigans. My brain wasn't functioning to the best of its' styling ability at a stupid hour in the AM, but I quite liked it, despite the crease overload on my skirt. I'm terrible when faced with the idea of having to iron my clothes, I usually tend to try and pass it off as my half-done, well worn style! I hardly ever wear T-shirts, but when I do, I opt for this adorable Uniqlo one, my heart print Topshop tee (of course) or one of my many soft, slouchy Urban Outfitters ones that I picked up when I went crazy in a 9p Christmas sale about two years ago. Also, it is quite a testament to my really, really, really opaque Wolford tights that they didn't suffer the same battering my legs got when involved in a little scuffle with a thorny bush in my garden. A good investment, I'd say!

I'm absolutely in love with my new ring. The lovely people at Boho Boho sent it to me for consideration last week and I can't stop wearing it! I love the summery colours on a chunky gold band, it makes for a really unique piece that adds the best I-don't-want-summer-to-end-yet touch to an outfit, yet I'll probably still wear it with the autumn/winter wardrobe I have planned. Boho Boho have some really gorgeous pieces available on their online store, I particularly like this snake cuff bangle and this knitted headwrap! I think both will look perfect for next season, which, let's face it, is already here, isn't it? I slept in a hoody last night - that pretty much never happens!

Anyway, I'm going to spend the rest of my Saturday browsing cheap interior ideas for my room, trying to decide on just one winter coat (my favourite thing to buy ever!) and working on some requested header designs that have taken me ages to get my head around. I'll be back tomorrow with a Week in Photos, and a scheduled post on Monday about my current make-up routine, because I'm spending my Bank Holiday with work on a boat party in London... catering for a wedding reception!

  20. Louise: Thank you (: I'm a little bit of a magpie to be honest, and my jewellery tastes are constantly changing! Hope you're well sweet!

    MSodaPop: Thanks lovely!

    Dollyfaces: Hopefully it answers a lot of questions because I've had so many emails and requests for something to do with my make-up and skincare routine haha. I'm awful with make-up though, just as a warning! ;)

    Lucy: Thank you! (: Haha yeah I used to straighten my tops, but I don't have straighteners anymore... Glad you liked the jewellery!

    Amy: Thank you! Yep, I'm going into my final year there now, haha ;)

    Cara: Aw thanks sweet, I have a crazy collection of rings now actually. Going to be selling a lot of them next week in a blog sale and on eBay because I don't really wear most of them!

    Chococcuro: Haha me too ;) I'm way too lazy to get out the ironing board and iron! Thanks sweetie. (:

    Steph: Thank you gorgeous :D I love Daisy and Donald too, I miss Walt Disney animations and cartoons so much haha. Eeeeep, I'm super excited to get to grips with my chosen options, such a nerd haha, I love my course (: Hope you're well Steph! <3

    Luisa: Me too :-P Thanks lovely!

    Jane: It was lovely! There's so much to do though, feeling a little bit overwhelmed if I'm honest. Of course I'll post photos, room tours are so highly requested, it's unbelievable! :-P

    Cherry: Aren't they just?! Shame they're a little scary and dodgy at night!

    Emily: Thanks Emily (: Haha I used to be that girl when I had straighteners still. Much more into hanging my creased clothes up on the bathroom door and having a hot shower now!

    Sophie: Aw thanks Sophie!

    Rose: Thanks Rose (: Oh gosh, really?! I've been out of the school/college routine for so long that I always forget others go back soon. I'm sure you'll be fine, I love new terms, being the utter geek I am. Ugh I know, I've been in my hoody pretty much since yesterday night, time to wack the blankets out for film nights in I think! Oww me too, been planning my dissertation as well, rock 'n roll eh? ;) xxxxx

    Kate: My family all said they were too hot to sleep last night, and I thought I was going crazy, so cold! I'll probably post about winter coats next week sometime, people are a bit touchy about posting about winter coats in August!
