clothes i always wear

Taking a quick break from a sea of University work to share an outfit with you today. This is just something I threw on in a crazy rush to get things done before a day of lectures last week, it's a bit of a here-and-there outfit, but I'm never one to be too done up or well thought-out! I did want to post about the Motel x GlossyBox event today, but upon a quick scout of the, erm, four photos I managed to snap on the night, I realised I'd probably have to wait until a few of the other girls post about it instead. Whoops!

Kudos to you if you're not bored of these pieces yet! Just realised I wear these clothes all too much at the moment: I haven't had the time, let alone money, to shop for shiny new things recently. Love the pastel pink, icy blue and navy blue with muted, khaki green in this outfit. It feels so fresh and girly, but still taps into Autumnal trends with dark tones and my ever faithful faux fur stole. Which Kristabel incidentally nearly "stole" from me on Thursday evening! I'm so much more of a seperates kind of girl than a dress and tights girl, so much room for imagination and stylistic opportunities!

The Motel x GlossyBox event was such a fun evening. I seriously couldn't believe how many bloggers and Youtubers showed up, it was a little overwhelming and I spent the entire evening gossiping away with people like I'd known them forever, and indulging in mini cupcakes and popcorn. So hello, and sorry for my wittering ways, to the bloggers I met "for the first time" and spoke to on Thursday! You brightened up my week! It was great to see Kim, Emma, Kate, Lily, Ling and Zoe again too, I always have such a good time with them, and best of all, I got to meet my long lost sisters Sarah and Sarah at last.

Right, I'd better scamper off back to my dissertation proposal. If I reach my words target and complete my extravagent three to-do lists for the day, I'll get a reward of the cringeworthy UK X Factor as weekend viewing tonight. Hope you're all enjoying your weekends, lovelovelove the Autumn sun in Southampton today!

  1. Haha I definitely don't see anything wrong with wearing clothes over and over!
    I've seen some of the Motel event post, looks like it was great - so cool that you got to meet a bunch of other bloggers.
    Good luck with the dissertation!

  14. So glad you had a good time at the Motel event. I really wished I'd gone, I've seen some lovely photos! Love your outfit, (as always!) You never fail to please Michelle. Fur stoles are amazing to put over anything, and a huge fan of the blouse.
