My gosh it was a mare and a half trying to take decent photographs today. My mum (who is the lucky soul usually
dragged convinced into taking my photographs) came to the conclusion that in Autumn the natural sunlight can be so freaking deceiving. What looks stunning to the eye can result out in a washed up mess after that shutter clicks, and thus we adventured around our local park looking for photograph-y spots, getting our shoes very muddy in the process.
As a self-confessed bargain hunter I'm especially proud of this houndstooth coat. It was originally £89 due to being part of DP's 'luxe' range. Then somebody returned it to the branch I work at (a massive cheers, whoever you are) and it went on sale for £45. And then after noticing it was actually in my size - a rare occurrence - I snapped it up with my staff discount on top. I don't know about you, but by the time it dropped down to £33.75, I was all over it.
Now I'm a bit overwhelmed at the moment, but in the best way possible. It's my favourite month in 2 days (!!!) and I've got an university interview this upcoming Tuesday. An excuse to collect my work together and buy some new interview-appropriate clothes? I was completely up for that. So a smart pair of ankle flats, tailored trousers and a few too many Black Friday purchases afterwards, I'm feeling ready. I'm so excited for December.
