Fox and stripes

I felt like I needed a bit of a break from blogging, which is why I haven't posted in two weeks. Sometimes you just run out of steam and I didn't want blogging to become a chore, so some time off seemed like the best idea. I'm feeling a bit more inspired now though so hopefully I'll have some good posts for you coming up!

Here's what I'm wearing today:

Alice Takes a Trip jumper, Motel trousers*, (really old) Topshop boots


I've been trying to buy my clothes more from independant labels than from the high street recently, as you can get some more interesting clothes, which you don't then end up seeing on everyone else at uni. I've been browsing on ASOS Marketplace a lot lately - it's great for finding unique yet inexpensive pieces. (If you're a fan of vintage it's also worth a look, as a general rule the sellers don't seem to take the p*ss with prices, unlike a lot of vintage boutiques/eBay sellers.) I found Alice Takes A Trip whilst browsing and fell in love with their jumpers and t-shirts featuring animals with bow ties. I couldn't resist this fox sweatshirt!

I just want to say thank you for everyone who helped me out with the Farlows competition I mentioned in my last post. I didn't win in the end, but I am so chuffed with all your support! Special thanks to my amazing flatmates who bullied all of their friends and family into voting for me too, even though most of them probably don't know or care what a blog is!

  11. Yeah I couldn't agree more, shopping on more independent sites and shops is so much more interesting. I love your sweater and the complete outfit to be honest! You always rock those Motel trews!

  19. You look AMAZING. I had a look on Asos marketplace but I found it a bit overwhelming, I think I would have to be more specific about what I was looking for... glad to have you back though :)
