Top 5 :

Monki Nina Trousers
These remind me of being a pre-teen and having those belts like seat belts that literally strap you into clothes your mum insists you'll grow into. Having said that I don't know why I've chosen them. Nostalgia perhaps...

What's black and white and read all over? A newspaper. Also this sweater (jumper - a knit is a jumper).  

Because sometimes you just feel like a black widow baby.

I've wanted this for the longest time. Topshop Boutique >

Magpie like qualities emerge every time I see a pair of silver shoes...

Filles a Pápa F/W 2014 is too perfect. Their mustard cords and layers-on-top-of-layers, combined with a totally bare faced look book is everything. 
Scandinavian minimalism has been overplayed all year, and the freshness of this collection and photography style give a whole new take on the trend.
I think I want pretty much every piece. 
Starting with a certain pair of mustard flares...

Having spent the last five weeks not sleeping and instead binging on Orange is the New Black, drinking insane amounts of coffee and running on pretty much just cold & flu tablets, my first project of final year - an entire magazine - has been completed and handed in. Deep breaths. 

Now I only have to write a case study of 10,000 words, I feel faaar more relaxed. 

I went home for the weekend, mainly to see my dog, but also to get fed and have a bath. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love living with my mates and having my own independence to look after myself and get drunk every other night of the week, but after four years** of living away from home I still somehow haven't mastered the art of doing a weekly shop. Or cooking for that matter. 

**Four years?! I can't even grasp how quickly that's gone... I literally have six months left. Fuck.

Also, big up to my boyfriend for being my photographer and filter chooser for the first time!

Top 5 : ASOS

I browse the ASOS 'New In' section on a daily basis and my Saved Items is a good few hundred items long - god help my boyfriend this Christmas... 
I hate shopping unless it's online, and I swear ASOS own line items just get better and better.

Midi Dress w/ Drop Waist
Not going to lie, I'm a hater of anything with a drop waist. I have stupidly short legs for someone of my height so it never sounds like a good idea to emphasise that. However... 

Sun Earrings
Anything celestial is good in my books. Any type of ridiculously oversized hoop earrings are my forté.

Oversized Knit Scarf
Ok, so I already own this but I'm so obsessed with it I didn't want to cut it from here. It's everything you could ever want from a scarf and more. 

Oversized Jumper Dress
For someone like me who spends most of my time in my bed, when I do actually need to leave the house for whatever reason I like to wear clothes that don't cause me any unnecessary stress. This dress looks like a blanket and I need it.

Utility Peg Trousers
I keep reading articles about 'How to have a clutter free wardrobe', and it looks great. Having only two pairs of trousers must be really liberating. It's definitely not the lifestyle for me.
