Little October Haul

I just realised I've actually bought a few things in the past few weeks that I hadn't 'documented' on here so here we go with a quick little haul! To be honest I bought some of these quite a while ago (like over the course of October) so I've forgotten the prices, but anyway.

I'd also like to take a moment to say something about the future of my blog - as of right now I'm not planning to stop blogging any time in the near future, but I've been posting less and in the long term I have no idea whether I'll be able to fit it around uni stuff. Having said that I would love to take this opportunity to try new things with it, especially if I can find someone to take some outfit photos on a regular-ish basis, which is something I've always wanted to do (although I've never had a proper camera and the confidence to do it, argh).

Right, on with the haul!

Top from Clockhouse

To be honest I wasn't really planning on buying anything in Clockhouse, but I spotted this top and I just thought it was quite sweet. Also I say nice a lot so I thought it was appropriate. 

Shirt from Forever 21

You can never have too many plaid shirts and I really like the colours in this one. With dungarees and combat boots this would make me look like a farmer but so far I've been wearing it with plain jeans and it works pretty well.

 Top from Forever 21

You've got to love a bit of rust for autumn. This top is so simple and versatile and I've worn it in a couple of different ways so far, first tucked into a houndstooth patterned skirt and then under a plaid shirt. Also I remember it was really cheap so it's a good all-rounder.

Dress from Forever 21

I am yet to wear this dress but I love it so much, it's ridiculously simple and very stretchy - to the point where it boings all over the place if I jump up and down a bit. Seriously, what more could you want?

Skirt from Forever 21

So I finally went and bought a denim button-down skirt and it is literally the best thing ever. I wish I'd invested in one months ago because I really love it, it's SO cliché now but the only reason you see so many people wearing them is because they're so fab. I have no reasons for its fabness, it just is.

Backpack from New Look

After a week of carting around my Michael Kors bag and killing my shoulder under the weight of several notebooks, a bottle of water, umbrella, purse etc, I finally caved and got a practical bag. It's about as stylish as I could possibly find though - I love the faux leather quilted look and it goes with everything.

Shoes from New Look

I also quickly came to the conclusion that I didn't have many pairs of shoes that would leave my feet blister-less after walking into town and back so I got this pair of simple plimsoll/trainers. So far they're pretty comfortable but I still prefer my dolly shoes and Chelsea boots...

Since I'm a poor student now I probably won't be buying much more for the foreseeable future so this might be my last haul for a while!
