Autumn Layering

SCARF/WRAP - New Look / SHIRT - Forever 21 / SHORTS - Topshop / BOOTS - Burberry Prorsum 

The sun beaming through my window yesterday morning was incredibly deceiving as you'll know if you're in London at the moment. Autumn is definitely here and I love it! I love being able to mix leather with lighter chiffon materials and for the days I don't want to wear a jacket or coat, I experiment with layering. This poncho-style wrap also doubles up as a huge scarf and i've also been using it as a small blanket. 

Yesterday was enrolment day at my new university and i'm getting really anxious about starting my new course. My fresher's week doesn't start until Sunday but I'm trying to avoid going out too much! My hangover recovery time is not what it used to be! :)

Leopard Lace

TUXEDO JACKET - Zara (old but I LOVE this one) / LACE SHIRT - H&M (similar here) / SKIRT - American Apparel (similar here and here) / SHOE BOOTS - Topshop

I like to think that I'm a super organised person but the reality never seems to quite match up. Today was the first time in a while that I actually took the time to plan my outfit for a night out and take pictures for my blog. Either I take the pictures on my laptop webcam or rope my poor friends into taking pictures for me when we're out (wine-induced photo taking is never advised to be honest). I'm just about to leave for my cousin's birthday - we're going for a drinks in a bar with a very 'sweaty' basement club attached! Hope you all have a great weekend :)

Black & White

DRESS (actually a Jacket) - Topshop / BLAZER - Zara (similar here and here)/ BELT - Primark

Since we haven't had much of a summer in London, I've been able to wear a lot of my autumn and winter clothes. I bought this blazer on a HUGE whim last year and to be honest I wasn't entirely sure what I would wear it with. I even considered taking it back but thank goodness for my very persuasive friend who told me that I would instantly regret it! Last weekend I went out for dinner for my friend's birthday and I somehow managed to get roped into going out until 5am. I'm definitely growing too old for this clubbing malarky because I didn't recover until a few days later. Too old in fact that i'm doing it all over again tonight! Hope you all are having a great weekend so far :)
