Stripe Jumper - Zara
Navy Jumper - New Look
Just a quick post and catch up today! I'm now officially at Manchester, studying Fashion Design and Technology: Menswear - second year. I've waited so long to be transferred here from Cardiff and I still can't quite believe it! I'm absolutely loving everything here and I'm so happy I made the decision to move. There's lots of hard work involved in my second year as well as sorting out my CV and portfolio ready to apply for placements, which I'm super nervous but super excited for.
My aim is to blog at least once a week, not as much as I'd like but I want to be realistic as I only have one day off a week due to uni and starting my new job; just need to settle in and get a routine going.
Anyway, since I have moved up North, I'm going to have to get used to the weather making me realise I only own 3 jumpers; for someone who's favourite season is Autumn, it's a bit of a shocker. So with my student loan coming in and getting a new job, I thought I'd treat myself to a few jumpers. I ended up only finding these two as 1. I'm very fussy and 2. Jumpers don't suit me very well (I know, annoying right). They're both ridiculously comfortable and soft, plus a little over sized so I can get plenty of layers underneath. Winners if you ask me!
Have you bought any new items for the A/W?
Jumper - H&M (similar)
Stripe Top - New Look (similar)
Suede Skirt - Cow Vintage (Manchester store)
Dr Martens (featured numerous times... someone help)
How bloody gorgeous is this skirt?! I bought it a week or so ago when I was up in Manchester for job interview (I got the job btw woo) and I straight away fell in love with colour. Best part is that I was going to buy a faux suede one from River Island that was no where near as nice as this. Therefore I'd definitely recommend scouting out your local vintage shops or charity shops for that matter, if possible.
This was my outfit for a recent cinema trip with my dad to go see Legend; my gosh you need to go watch it. Whether I'm being biased because of all the Tom Hardy I witnessed but I still think it's totally worth seeing!

I wanted to do a post on clothing items that would be perfect for University (or college for that matter) but once I started searching, it turned out almost everything I wanted was from ASOS. Saying that Topshop and Zara are really on form at the moment with their A/W collection. Anyway after lots of searching this wishlist was created. Let's just say that if I win the lottery any time soon, these items would definitely make their way into my basket!
Being a blogger and fashion student, I could write for days about each items of clothing but I think the models can do the talking today. Let me know your favourites, or maybe what you're after for the new season.
Sweater - Pho London (Giveaway item)
Denim Skirt - Topshop
Canvas Bag - Sister's Creation
Shoes - Dr Martens
Rings - Vintage
Firstly I just need to get off my chest that I'm not completely happy with the quality of these photos so just bear with me on that and I will get a better camera. Anyway, this is an outfit I wore the other day when I was going into Worcester to see some college friends I hadn't seen in just over a year! It was a really lovely day to catch up and lucky that the weather was so nice for us.
The jumper I have mentioned in a previous post (here) explaining that I in fact won it as part of a giveaway from Pho London. Pairing it with a denim a-line, my trusty docs and glittery socks, it provided me with a comfortable and relaxed outfit while still looking like I've made an effort.
I also wanted to share with you this star canvas bag my sister has made; while the bag itself is an eBay purchase, all the stars were created by hand. I'd say that's pretty impressive to say she's not one for sewing and that you can do anything if you put your mind to it! Check out her instagram @emily_fearne as she has intentions on possibly creating more to sell over the christmas period! (Gosh did I really mention Christmas this early?!)
