Top: YMCA Charity Shop
Pepe Jeans: Save The Children Charity Shop
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
I love this little jacket so much, when I first locked eyes on it in Zara last semester I simply knew that resistance would be futile. I found the shell print top on the 50p sale rail in the YMCA charity shop the other day and thought it was equally ridiculous and adorable. Do you like my 'mum' jeans?

Popping into the YMCA charity shop always entails a frantic rifle through their delightful 50p sale rail which never fails to present me with one unignorable essential purchase. Today it was a nautical polyester vest with this killer print:
I am beyond obsessed with nautical and so this top is pretty much a visual representation of the configuration of my mind.
I also treated myself to some fabulous black chunky suedey wedges from New Look which only cost £18 after student discount had been deducted.
The day was completed with a visit to Florence Cafe for jacket potatoes with cheese and baked beans and a cream tea. And a pot of tea for two. My sister and I both agreed on how positive it felt to be supporting an independent business that champions homemade food and has a genuine passion for customer service as opposed to pouring money into generic chains such as Cafe Nero and Costa Coffee.
My boyfriend recoils in horror and disgust when I so much as show the palest glimmer of interest in Autumn/Winter fashions and no doubt he will rebuke me for cementing my curiosity in weblog form. Yet! I am sure that there are a fair few of us out there who feel something desirous stir deep within at the sight of this edible green velvet dress from A.P.C for ASOS' AW10 collection. The clown collar and empire shape of it would have been more than enough to secure this item firmly at the top of my party season wishlist so the discovery of the pompoms took me to the brink of obsession. I have to have this dress! Somehow, someday. Does Father Christmas do pre-orders?
I am desperate for a sheepskin flying jacket like the one on the left this Autumn. I never really managed to feel comfortable wearing the hundred pound Topshop leather jacket my parents bought me for my twentieth birthday though so it's probably not a good idea. I'm most at ease in the burnt orange vintage 1960s 'hacker jacket' I obtained for a fiver three years ago. It gets worn to death as soon as I detect the sun taking his straw boater off.
Could this be the new double denim?

Dress: Purple @ Dorothy Perkins
Bag (just visible): Lidl
I survived Benicassim! Films are currently being developed and will follow shortly.
In other news, I was straight back to work today and decided this thrice-worn crumpled maxi dress was the pick of the bunch from my sweat-soaked, sand-filled, sun-bleached, battle-weary ruck sack wardrobe.
