Outfit: River Island Coatigan

Well that giant piece of paper floating around in the background isn't annoying AT ALL! Haha I blame my photographer ;). These photos were taken in about 2 blustery minutes as we were power walking back to the car park, if any of you have parked in central Cambridge before you'll be aware a small bank loan is needed to cover the cost. A mooch around the city centre is becoming the usual Sunday routine, I don't think I'll ever get bored of this city. I saw a thing on Buzzfeed the other day '58 reasons living in Cambridge ruins your life' (linked!) so true! I'm guilty of comparing it to every city I go to and they just aint as pretty!

So last week was slightly crazy, if I wasn't commuting or at uni I was busy doing something else. The weekend came and I breathed a sigh of relief! I did the usual, caught up with friends, ate out too much and also caught up on the walking dead - OMG how good is the new series looking to be?! So glad Rick and Daryl are back on my screen. I have a slightly more chill week ahead than last so I've put aside some time to get regular blogging back on track, third year is already killing me!

Etre-Cecile Tee / Primark Coat / Miss Selfridge Jeans / Primark Shoes / Mulberry Bag

A casual outfit for a stroll around Cambridge, I'm obsessed with the brand Etre Cecile, they make the coolest tees and sweatshirts everrr! So I can't believe this coat is Primark!!! I have to admit I've never shopped in there really, I just hate the chaotic vibe and messiness, it stresses me out. I had to kill some time the other day so I thought I'd brave it for ten minutes and I found some complete gems. I'd been after an oversized grey boyfriend style fit coat and this one is literally the image I had in my head so I was over the moon with it. My other gem is the loafers, love the colour and the chunky sole plus they're super comfy!

Outfit: Faux Fur Cape

IMG_5411 IMG_5403 IMG_5446 IMG_5438 IMG_5390 IMG_5469

Soo a unexpected blogging hiatus this week, I've been non-stop with the start of third year and generally just so busy. I'm working out a blogging schedule so I can keep you all up to date with posts and not go full weeks without! It's just a matter of getting into a routine again. Anyway onto my outfit, feeling snug as a bug in a rug in this luscious fur cape! It is so warm, perfect for the turn in the weather and chilly air. It's a great piece to throw over a jumper for an extra layer of snuggliness. A few new bits in this outfit, I've been lusting over these Topshop 'Fliss' flatforms since they hit the site, I snagged them during the 20% off for students so they ended up being a complete bargain as they're quite cheap in the first place. I also made a cheeky purchase in the form of the topshop roll neck sweat, I featured it in my previous wishlist post and just had to have it.

So I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm going to spend my evening watching the Strictly results (loving this series!) and putting together a little blog plan for the week. More from me soon!

Wishlist: October Warmers

The weather is finally turning, wahoo! Whilst some are hating the cooler temperatures creeping in, I  imagine fellow fashion followers are rejoicing. We can finally wear all that knitwear and faux fur we hastily bought back in August! I've had a snuggly Zara number sitting in my wardrobes for about two months waiting until those leaves turn brown. So as it's getting colder (and wetter - no one asked for that) I thought it was good timing for a wishlist post. Plus there's been an abundance of outfit snaps on my blog the past week or so, so I thought this would make a nice change from my face. Here goes:

So about an eighth of the items on my 'I really need this' list right now. I'm still desperate for a new coat, I have bought one which I quite like (and may feature soon) but I had to buy it a size too big as mine was sold out, I'm hoping I can exchange it for the right size as it's a little TOO oversized. I have my eye on the gorgeous Zara camel jacket, I just need to make a decision before it inevitably sells out! Grey knits are always a staple in my wardrobe, I'm loving the roll neck dress from Whistles, it's a real classic and something I'd get a lot of use out of it. Throw on a leather jacket and some black boots et voila! I had to also add the Whistles mittens in, they just look so furry and warm. They'll keep my fingers from turning to icicles when I'm waiting for the uni bus - that's my justification or buying them anyway. 

I'm a big fan of shearling and the Topshop jacket is right up my street, you can never have to many jackets in my eyes. Every new 'school' year I usually buy a new tote bag, I didn't this year as I was just massively unprepared in general. This Mango faux croc shopper caught my eye, I'm a sucker for croc leather and it's only £35, bargain! To round it off, the magnificent khaki croc (see I just love dat croc) suede boots, I'm a big fan of khaki this season plus I love the pointy toe. What do you think?

Outfit: ASOS Back To School #4

IMG_5220 IMG_5243 IMG_5267 IMG_5262 IMG_5216

So this outfit is another casual campus look, though I've teamed mine with my block heels from Glamorous which are fab for daytime but remove the cardigan et voila, the perfect outfit for some evening drinks too. I am in LOVE with this maxi cardigan, it is the ultimate snuggly piece. As I commute into uni I have to layer and keep warm as I spend (too much) time waiting around for buses. This cardi will definitely see me through autumn, especially layered with another knit underneath and a big cosy scarf on top.

On another note, I have a favour to ask you lovely lot! I'd love if you could check out my most recent guest post on Haitrade here -> and if you could give me a 'like' it would be very very much appreciated! :)
