Firstly, a big thank you for the comments and thoughts on yesterday's blog post. I talked a little about the topic on everyone's lips - the saturation of blogs and continual inspiration. If you're interested on having a read, make a cuppa and head on over - I'd love to hear from you too! I actually wrote my undergraduate dissertation on the changing landscape of fashion media, so it's a tiny speck of something I hold quite close to my heart.

This outfit is something I actually wore last weekend, although I can see myself wearing it again perhaps tomorrow at work. I've completely darkened up my wardrobe again - perfect for those awkward 'dressing in the dark' mornings, because turning on your bedroom light in the morning just seems so... wrong. I picked up these (p)leather shorts in our staff sample sale at work last Friday and needed to wear them immediately. The non-waistband design is perfectly clean cut and unassuming: so good for a hint of edginess without veering too far off-course from my typical style. I can't get enough of my Topshop camis again (good thing really, at £18 a pop!) so I slipped one on with the shorts, rounding the look off with my Chloé inspired boots and River Island jacket that sneaks its' way into all of my outfits as of late.

Last weekend, I was kindly invited down to London to chill out with some bloggers, chow down on some canapés, take a closer look at the AW13 collection and enjoy a private screening of Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris' at the Bvlgari Hotel, all courtesy of Matalan. It was a lovely afternoon, although my sister and I arrived a tad late and missed out on most of the blogger mingling. Louise (baby Daisybutter and the gal who takes my outfit photos!) thoroughly enjoyed meeting Elodie, Lauren, Laura, Julie and Hayley, and I had the best time having a brief catch-up!

Matalan have really come up trumps with a surprisingly trend led selection in their AW13 range. I hardly ever shop in Matalan, but there's a huge store in my hometown and I remember when lots of my friends got their first jobs in there, and finding many a gem on my old 16-year-old wage. Their new mantra is a 'wear it your way' mantra, which of course I'm a huge advocate of - I absolutely adore that monochrome tweed inspired coat and the tartan skirts - all of which have promptly made it to my wishlist! Onto the actual event - I seriously need to give props to the Matalan team for putting on an amazing afternoon, 'Midnight in Paris' was a perfect Saturday choice of viewing, full of romance and nostalgia, and the Bulgari Hotel was on a whole other level! x

  5. Babybutter is so cute! (I love that Sophie has just invented this nickname, I want it to stick haha!) Your outfit is lovely Mish. I need to invest in some of those camis, they look really handy to just pop on with a skirt or shorts.

  10. I love how simple this outfit is, but how do you not freeze in this weather?? I wear about five layers to work and still can't stop shivering or feeling like I'm going to lose my fingers and toes D:
    I like the sneaky photo of your sister haha

    1. Thanks Priscilla! Er, I definitely froze today, but it was pretty mild on this day! I had a huuuge scarf on for today but with rushing for trains and tubes and being in an office for 8 hours, all seems to be fine ;) x

  12. I love that River Island blazer you have, I keep looking over here in J Crew and such to try and find one like it without having to spend $100 on shipping from the UK but I think I'm going to have to..

    1. Thanks Nicole! Ah you definitely should, or I could easily pick one up and send it over for what I'm sure is a little less in shipping? Home shopping without actually having to be in our town must be a plus ;)
