I feel like I've been neglecting my blog a little recently which I can tell you isn't the case, I spent most of last week editing photos on and off in the evening but I've just had so much work on at University that by time the night comes I'm absolutely knackered! I had a review today though as I'm on my final major project now (how fast has that came round?!) and I was really happy with what was said so my day started well that was until later on I repelled technology as usual, my battery died on my phone and the bus broke down! 
But I'm here I'm alive, so I'll get to the more interesting stuff!

The weathers been gorgeous lately hasn't it?! I even took the risk of wearing my leather jacket today instead of a coat, and because its been lovely I wanted to take the opportunity to escape university  make the most of it to take these photographs.

I brought these trousers in Primark couple of weeks ago now, I've had a bit of a crush on trousers especially since I often pop by Amy's blog The Little Magpie I'd love to be able to pull off trousers the way she does! Anyway after uming and ahing over these I decided to buy them, they had a button missing on the front so I cheekily asked for a discount even though they were a sale item and they told me I could have £1 off so I agreed. Anyway when I got home I checked my receipt and to my surprise they'd actually charged me a £1!? How good is that?! 

I love the leather strip down the side, as I really took to the trend sports luxe last year thought I'd add a few more pieces to my wardrobe. 

Think for anyone that knows me well or at least follows me on Instagram will know I love anything french really and it actually surprised me that I'd never worn a typical stripy top on my blog? So I thought I'd try a sort of french style look to this. Taking this oppertunity I thought I'd mention the book I've been reading too called Paris Street Style. My mum treated me to it a couple of weeks ago after I gone on about wanting it and it is SUCH a good read even if French isn't your preferred style it has such good tips and tricks and stuff I adore it, or shall I say j'adore it.

Anyway that's pretty much it, I have an exciting post lined up for next time showing and talking about a brand called Bottle Green Vintage which I very luckily got to model for I tried on some gorgeous pieces so I'd like to show them to you all. Plus I have a few things I've brought recently that I can wait to photograph so look forward to those! 

Oh oh and lastly music wise, I seen Bombay Bicycle Club last weekend who were utterly beautiful like PLEASE take me back. But my current obsession is Arcade Fire and as their song Reflektor features a bit of French in it I thought it would tie it all together nicely. Go listen!

That's all from me, I have my university Interview next week so I've got a lot to be doing wish me luck! & Take Care you gorgeous, gorgeous lot.
