paisley scarf, docs & obsessive buying

I feel like I've had such a busy week! I was in Abergavenny last weekend to visit my friend Charlie as she was home from Germany for the weekend and we went to the Food Festival there with her family and we had such a lovely time. I ate my body weight in food and enjoyed myself SO much, if you've never been to a food festival before I highly recommend going, so many different things to see, try and buy!

I was then struck down with ANOTHER cough but this time a cold came with it and I've been feeling under the weather since with a very husky voice which doesn't seem to be going away! :(

dress - ASOS, scarf - ASOS, boots - Dr Martens

I don't know about you but when I find a piece of clothing that I absolutely adore, I tend to buy it in every style/colour I can! I bought this style dress from ASOS in a denim rust colour with brass buttons about a month ago and am obsessed with it. So when I spotted the exact same dress in grey cord, I couldn't resist. It's so easy to wear and warm enough to wear without a jacket in the current UK weather. The material is super soft and as a big cord lover anyway, I was sold with this dress pretty quickly. I teamed it with my Docs for comfort and simplicity and a fringed paisley scarf from ASOS to jazz it up a bit and give it some colour. Fringed scarves are a must-have accessory for Autumn as they're so easy to jazz up any outfit without making any effort! This one is currently in the sale for £3.50 so it's a total steal.

Are you like me and buy items you love in every style available?

boots of dreams & long awaited update

Sooooooo hello again!

I'm not going to ramble on as to why this is my first blog post in 5 months but I do owe a short explanation: I've had a lot going on the past 6 months at home so I decided to take a small hiatus on my blog, it was only supposed to be for 2 months but 2 months turned into 3 and then 3 turned into 4 and here we are, 5 whole months later!

However, I've come to realise that writing this blog is a hobby for me and something I'm really passionate about so I shouldn't just drop it so easily despite other things going on.

A lot has happened in the past few months too, I graduated with a 2:1 in German from University and have started working part time in a department store as a Personal Shopper whilst I stay at home with my family for the time being whilst figuring out what to do with my life (being a grown up is scary!!)

I'm going to try and get back into regular posting and thought there was nothing better to post about in my first blog post in 5 months than the boots of dreams!

Skirt - ASOS, Top - Miss Selfridge, Boots - ASOS

Animal prints are HUGE this AW and I am just so in love with anything snake print at the minute! I adore these 60s style ankle boots from ASOS in this gorgeous snake print, hence the name boots of dreams (insert heart eyes emoji here). They're super comfy and surprisingly easy to pair with things - they're a match made in heaven with anything rust (total dream for me!). This skirt is THE infamous denim skirt from ASOS which they've now done in about 7-8 different colours. It's so comfy, flattering and just hits the 70s trend on the head perfectly. Lace up tops are still everywhere and I love this one from Miss Selfridge, it's a tee shirt style which makes it a lot more casual and gives it more of a relaxed feel which is exactly what I've been looking for in a lace up top as I don't always want to have to wear a blouse or bodysuit style as I find them too dressy sometimes. I'd definitely recommend it as it's so easy to wear with anything and only £16!

What are your views on animal print shoes?
