Several things happened in the gap between the last post and this, the most important being that I made the decision to quit university, and got a job, something which I was very unsure and nervous of doing at the time, but now know was the right thing to do. I stopped blogging so that I could concentrate on looking for a job properly - I had got into a blackhole of sleeping very late each day, and was close to depression, so took some timeout to sort my life out.
I know being out of the loop for so long will be practically zero readers of this particular post, but hopefully that will change over the next few months, as I become the most dedicated blogger ever!
I've recently just come back from a wonderful trip to India which I plan to dedicate a whole post to sometime in the future, but for now, I just wanted to share my favourite photo of a local fisherman on a beach in Anjuna. Just beautiful.

I'll apologise now for the quality of the photos in this blog - largely due to a low resolution camera and the poor light they were taken in. I also wish I could have shown them being worn, but I've no one to take a photo of me, and no decent full length mirror.
Anyway, I bought this cute little tea dress a few weeks ago from Primark - when on it's nicely fitted but skims the stomach area so is flattering. I've worn it a bit too much!
This skirt is again from Primark at about £8 I think. It is slightly high waisted, so I usually where it with a shirt or tee tucked in.
In real life this cardy is shorter and a nicer red than it seems here. Originally from Zara, I rescued it from the 'discard' pile of a friend's sister.
Grey oversized cardy from Topshop.
And last but not least, my favourite recent purchase - a tee from Topshop. I've worn this so much - tucked into various high-waisted skirts, and baggy over denim mini's and skinny jeans. It's the most flattering baggy t-shirt I've found in a long while, and looks great in a rock chic kind of way.

Anyways, onwards and upwards I hope?
I vow to be back and hopefully regular from tomorrow. I have still been reading other blogs intermittantly and they are as wonderful as ever. Particularly an entry almost three weeks ago by Mary entitled 'What I Did on my Summer Vacation...'. If you haven't yet read it, make sure you do, it is the most beautiful and emotive thing I've read in a long time.
Lots of love xxxx

These shoe boots from Dorothy Perkins look a little pirate-esque in this photo, but not so much in real life. It doesn't put me off though, they look amazing with skinny jeans or a high-waisted skirt and tights.
I have no idea why I like these Chanel tights so much, but I'm so fascinated by them.
I've been in love with these frill detail red courts from Topshop forever, they're just so cute. Unfortunately I think they are soon to be out of season and I still can't afford them. I'll just have to look instead!
Vintage inspired chain from Urban Outfitters - just endless effortless style.
Markus Lupfer sequin jumper - how cute is the red bow?! Fabulous with full length black leggings and either flat brogues or Oxfords, or some killer shoe boots. Again, totally out of my price range. Well, for now at least!
