Well if you got that lean.


J.W. Anderson x Topshop ghost jumper: £56 (similar). Warehouse denim skirt: £2, via sample sale. Bally chelsea boots: £8, via charity shop. Topshop lace frill socks: gift. Whistles ponyskin bag: borrowed from Charlotte.

If ever there were a time to stray from my usual Sunday routine of sitting in bed with a cup of tea putting the final touches to a blog post, it would be Halloween. Up until the last couple of years this holiday passed me by in an orange-hued blur, but more recently I've found myself more inclined to celebrate and raid the fancy dress shops for something to top last year's attempts (which, in case you were wondering, were a drunken sunken sailor and my lookalike). I'm not quite ready to reveal what this year's costume will be, but keep your eyes on instagram and twitter this evening as I'm sure there'll be time for a quick ootn! Of course, I'm not going to let the daytime escape a little Halloween nod, so I'll be sure to slip into my trusty J.W.Anderson x Topshop ghost jumper and risk the tuts and glares of many an exasperated City worker on my commute.

Whether you're heading out to terrify the neighbourhood or treating yourself to a night in, I hope you have a lovely Halloween!

Light reflects from your shadow.

Wide-brimmed hat: £15, Marks and Spencer. Tartan Scarf: £8, ebay. Sailor coat: £63, Topshop. Ghost jumper: £56, JW Anderson x Topshop. Blouse: Miss Selfridge. Corduroy circle skirt: American Apparel, via ebay. Bag: French Connection. Wellies: Hunter.  Necklace: Urban Outfitters. Creepy face: model's own.

I don't really like snow. I like the idea of it, the stillness in the air, and the blanketed whiteness of the landscape, but, clumsy as I am, the higher likelihood of falling over isn't one I look forward to. Thankfully this year I had some sensible footwear (yes, mum), as I'd won a pair of Hunter wellington boots in Char's giveaway a couple of months ago. They, so far, have helped me stay upright and salvage some amount of dignity that this season otherwise seems intent upon destroying.

Right now, my life would ideally be spent revising for my seventeenth century novel exam on Friday, but I have been led astray a couple of times for friends' birthdays, and have somehow found myself throwing myself on my bed around 3am wondering why I went out without tights on. But I promise I'll be back to reading Sense and Sensibility with a good cup of Yorkshire Tea (brand of choice, just so you're aware) once I've clicked publish.

Ghost jumper: £56, J.W. Anderson x Topshop. Silky collar tee: £18, American Apparel. Leather skirt: £8, Oxfam. Two-tone flats: 50p, Russell and Bromley, via ebay. Brown frame bag: £3, vintage. Ghost ring: Greggs!

Remember when I said I wouldn't buy anything using the extra student discounts in town? Surprise surprise, it didn't happen. The J. W. Anderson for Topshop collection launched a while ago and, for those who aren't aware, this is deemed by the fashion industry to be a Pretty Big Deal. Based around basics, the capsule collection promotes high fashion for those with smaller budgets. In my opinion, £70 for a jumper isn't cheap, but with 20% off I convinced myself that it would be just about acceptable to add this little number to my jumper collection. And it has a bloody ghost on it - who could resist? It's nearing the end of October, which signals my favourite holiday - hallowe'en. Among other reasons (which I will, inevitably,  arrange in a bullet-point list at some point), I look forward to this autumnal event due to Greggs pulling out all the stops and making fairy cakes with free rings. I may not be their intended audience, but I ensure I get at least one every year; please tell me I'm not the only one who does this?

Ignoring baked goods, however painful it may be, life has been b u s y. But the best part, without doubt, is seeing my little blog featured on The Tab's frontpage! Speaking to Rachel (my interviewer) is what convinced me to get involved, but I'd love it if you clicked the image below and read what I have to say about scouse style and student shopping
