Shirt and blazer: both H&M
Skirt: Primark
Belt: Topshop
Watch: gift

Long time no outfit post! Things have been super hectic recently (I know I seem to say that a lot), but fun at the same time. My work placement's keeping me really busy, but everyone I've met there is so lovely, and I get to do stuff that I genuinely enjoy - so s'all good!

Anyway, I've been really digging the whole English heritage look recently; fabrics like tartan and tweed have been sneaking their way into my wardrobe more and more. I don't know if it's just because I'm looking forward to more Autumnal looks, or because I've been watching Our Zoo and re-watching Downton - both of which feature incredible vintage British fashion. Speaking of Downton, I'm SO psyched for the start of the new series on Sunday! I've missed Aunt Violet's quips, Rose's mischief and, of course, the fabulous dresses.

I'd been looking for a tweed jacket for a while when I stumbled across this one in H&M, and very quickly fell in love with it. It's surprisingly warm, too, so hopefully I'll be able to wear it right through to Winter.

  4. I seriously need to start watching Downtown- especially if it inspires such cute looks! I'm always a fan of plaid and tweed- it's impossible not to feel cozy and and classy in them :)

    Graduation is a festive occasion - and one with surprisingly few rules when it comes to how you dress or what you wear. While thinking what dresses you wear.
