Fluffy Puff Marshmallow

Hey guys, hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was spent mostly looking for my camera charger (finally found it this morning in one of my drawers... fail), shopping and constantly checking twitter and instagram for LFW videos and photos! How amazing did Topshop Unique, Burrbery and Mulberry look?! Not to mention Cara and Jourdan. One year I will go!

Anyway, can we all just take a minute to appreciate how amazing this jumper is?! It's soo fluffy! I feel like a marshmallow - in a cosy wintery way, if that's possible. I was anxious in case it was itchy - as you can find with jumpers like this - but it's so comfy cosy and such a gorgeous colour, I've got no complaints at all.

Onto the boots. I've been after some flat boots for quite a long time. I adore my Topshop Alexa's (see below post) but for long days that involve a lot of walking they sometimes just aren't suitable! I saw these and instantly loved the gold detailing on the front, the buckles, and the vertical studs at the back. They just stood out to me a lot more than all the other plain black boots I've seen. Plus they look cute with these frilly socks. (but then again, what boot doesn't?)

Today was one of those days where I decided I wanted to completely revamp my room. I aimed to do a quick tidy and throw a few things out - 4 bin bags later and I know I'll have to do some more tomorrow. I didn't realise I have so much junk!

I'm so glad it's cold enough for me to wear things like this again and go for darker nails. Dressing in A/W feels so much more natural and comfier for me - I know that might seem bizarre, especially as I was born and lived in Greece. It's just so easy to throw on a jumper! As for tights I always buy the 40 denier from Primark - I think that for the Autumn they're a great thickness. I remember I bought some from Topshop once - one pair for £8! - and they split after two wears. At least with these 3 pair for £3 ones I don't feel too bad having to repurchase!

I'm absolutely loving getting back into blogging! You guys are so lovely :)

Regrettably my blog has been suffering a lot recently due to a few things going on in my life that I'd rather not discuss. However, I'm feeling free and a lot better now so I'm determined to return back to blogging a lot more often. Whilst I'm still an amateur at this, I really do enjoy the creative outlet element to it. Also anyone with new camera will hopefully have some sympathy for me - I cannot seem to figure out the right settings so I'm sorry for the blur and dodgy lighting!

Anyway, onto the look. Sorry it's very Zara/Topshop heavy! Zara in Portugal is much much cheaper so I couldn't help but go a little (a lot) wild! I'd be willing to do a haul of some sort if anyone is interested! I'm definitely much more of an Autumn girl over Summer. Whilst I love the hot weather, I find dressing in older weather so much more fun. Knitwear, boots, faux fur... I love it. Today I went out and got my nails done, they were looking soo awful after my holiday. I've had acrylics for about 6 or 7 months now and I'm finding it impossible to think of life without them! How pathetic is that! If you'd like to see a photo there's one up on my instagram.

Talk tomorrow!
