Eternal Autumn

I'm getting really bored of winter. January and February always feel so long and by the end of it, I’m just ready for spring. I always find it really hard to dress nicely during these months. It takes so much effort to wear pretty skirts and dresses when you know that you will be miserable and will be wearing a jumper and coat on top anyway. Jeans and an old t-shirt will do. One thing I’ve discovered which helps is fleece lined and woollen tights. Sometimes it can be warmer than wearing jeans and means you can wear dresses to your hearts content. 

I particularly like these ones from Next. I don’t know if you can tell from these pictures, but they are sparkly! I have a bit of a thing for sparkly clothes at the moment and these tights are great because they are subtle enough that I can get away with them in both parties and every day. 

I managed to take these outside with a tripod. I'm sort of proud of this because I felt really awkward and was worried that someone I knew would walk past and ask what I was doing. But I persevered and even though I had to finish sooner than I probably wanted because I saw someone coming, I did manage to enjoy myself. These were taken probably about ten minutes on foot away from my house and it seems to be pretty quiet there, so it may become my default location. I just hope this isn’t an eternal autumn because it will look strange in the summer.

I'm wearing:

“We’re All Plaid Here” Coat from Modcloth on sale for £19 (what a cool name!)
Jumper from Gap
Top from George on sale for £5
Skirt from H&M which was something like £7
Tights from Next
Boots from Primark 
Bag from Accessorize on sale for £6

Today I'm listening to:


  1. I love your little bag :) I collect those side-satchels myself. Nice matching your boots to your plaid coat.

    And aren't tri-pods and best/worst? Best because they can take pics when no one else can, but the worst because it feels so awkward, haha.

    1. Yeah, especially if you have no idea if the way you are standing looks ok and you have no idea if you look like a complete idiot
