I would say I'm sorry if I thought that it would change your mind.

I've never particularly been an "adventurous" dresser, choosing instead to focus upon a basic wardrobe of plain colours that can be worn in seemingly endless combinations. The idea of dressing up for London Fashion Week doesn't especially appeal, the dreaded street style photographers are very welcome to jump on the bejewelled  and beautiful, but I'd rather focus on the collections than stand stiffly in front of another's lens. These two pieces have become a new favourite pairing; it may not be worthy of the Sartorialist's time, but I love the muted berry hues twinned with the oversized tee, twisted into a knot at the back. I wore this to a twenty-first birthday meal, then on to town for my friends' gig, and it managed to survive everything from burning sambuca to 1am trips to a supermarket perhaps better than studded knee-caps would - not that I've ever tried!

I simply cannot believe that summer's finally drawing to an end. I'll be heading North for the third and final instalment of my Liverpool-based exploits early next week, and I simply cannot wait. Being a student is difficult: I know I'm not the only one, but in my personal experience the past two years have been pretty testing in regards to both my academic endeavours and learning to live simultaneously at polar ends of the country. Despite the times when I've felt insecure and down - and boy, there have been a few! - I relish my time in Merseyside, and I am determined to cram in as much as possible, when I'm not hidden beneath a pile of oxford world classics.

  5. I love the colours in this outfit, perfect for autumn (: And I feel exactly the same about my final year of uni too. It's definitely been a massive learning curve for me but I'm determined to make the most of my last year doing everything I can possibly cram into it and hopefully seeing a bit more of the South before I inevitably move back North into my comfort zone once more! So the same, but the opposite way round! (: xx

  13. I'm still in my university city but I'm more here than at home now - making the switch is still pretty testing. I also don't attract the street style photographers but I think your outfit would still look good in 10 years and that's a better sign of being stylish I think.
