My Outfit of the Week #5

I have been wanting to photograph this jumper for months, but resisted until the weather gets into a real Autumn mode. I love all the cut out styles that are around at the moment, it just adds that immediate edge to an outfit. I found this jumper in the French Connection sale at the very beginning of summer but at over £50  my unemployed budget would never allow it. My mum also pointed out to me that it was not the most practical jumper with so many cut outs.

I wanted to prove her otherwise.

Luckily a month later I spotted the jumper again but this time with even more money off. Don't you just love it when that happens? I always believe in fate with clothes. Some pieces are just meant to be!

Here I have kept it simple with a fringed necklace from Lipsy and some trousers from Zara. I wish my camera was slightly better so you can see how amazing these trousers are! I call them my 'alternative' disco pants as they suck me in and keep the great silhouette that the disco pant covets. I am also wearing my new lipstick from Topshop which is the perfect bright pink (Brighton Rock).

Sorry for the quick post, but I will be back soon with lots of snazzy photos from my new camera (finally). Let me know what you think of this jumper and whether, like me, you can't get enough of cut outs!

My Outfit of the Week #4

River Island dress (offer £20), H&M necklace (BOGOF £7.99), stud belt River Island (free with skirt), Argos white watch

This week technology appears to be my enemy. Not only has my laptop decided to breakdown, but when I use the computers at University they seem to want to reject my every word. Take this blog post for example, why does the computer suddenly not  have my default font? So I have to type it up in word first and then find my usual font. I just cannot bear inconsistency. Can you tell I am a perfectionist yet? I always find technological disasters happen all at once. Almost like a domino effect. The moment one buckles they all follow.
But, I did manage to take some pictures of a dress I brought last week. I have been meaning to do a post about this dress the moment I brought it but, as you can see, technology has other ideas. I went shopping looking for the perfect dogtooth print to update my wardrobe and in my mind I thought of some trousers. However when I saw this dress in River Island I could not resist. There was a special offer too so I managed to snatch it for £20. I have already worn it numerous times, dressing it up for night or down for day. In these pictures I have accessorised with a statement monochrome necklace from H&M and stud belt. I kept the colours simple this time but I have also worn it with neon accents, which works particularly well.
River Island is having a fabulous season this Autumn/Winter. I have found so many pieces that have fast become my favourites in my wardrobe. I recommend anyone to head over there now if you want something to really make an impact on your style. Plus, they are doing a range of student events at the moment. With an extra 20% off you really need no excuse!
