photo diary #1

1&2: some very helpful books; 3,4,5,6&7: research for my current project; 8: colour/fabric scheme for said project; 9: listening to Mother by Tori Amos.

Thought I'd start doing a photo diary post at the end of each week to sum up what I've done. As you can see this week's interesting events mainly consisted of doing uni work every now and again, while the rest of my time was spent doing normal, boring things such as eating, sleeping, watching TV etc that aren't really worth recording. Let me know if you want to see more of these posts and I'll make it a regular feature!

make this easy

I'm really not getting any better at this whole "posting regularly" thing, am I? I was going to post this on Wednesday but, again, random things ended up distracting me and I've only got round to posting it now. I'm sorry, I promise I'll be better at this very soon!

Anyway, like I said this outfit was from Wednesday, although it's something I've worn quite a few times before now, between washes obviously! The skirt is actually a dress that I got from Warehouse in a sale about 3 years ago for £20. It's a wrap dress and has a really low cut bust so unless I wear something under/over it I basically end up flashing my bra, so at the moment I've opted for layering this ASOS jumper over the top, which is another of my more recent sale purchases. I love this jumper as it's cropped at the front but longer at the back so its a perfect layering piece especially over dresses such as this one. I obviously then paired it with my usual accessories and my camel coat, it's my favourite piece of outerwear right now so expect to see it a few more times on here until spring properly shows up!
Coat: Topshop
Dress: Warehouse
Jumper: ASOS
Belt: ASOS
Boots: Debenhams

P.S. Please excuse all the wires in the background, its where my telephone is plugged in and I probably shouldn't unplug it...

P.P.S. Also please excuse the fact that my nails are dire in these pictures, those of you with keen eyesight may notice that one of my nails is almost entirely devoid of nail varnish while others are not. This is why there are no hands/rings/nails pics for you this time, sadly. I also really want a couple of new rings so I don't keep showing you the same ones all the time!

Just thought I'd let you guys know that I now have a tumblr. I'm mainly going to use it for uni based things, research and inspiration, like a sort of online sketchbook. I may also throw in the odd bit of generic fashion posting as well, but at the moment I'm gonna concentrate on the uni work side of things. If any of you are interested in my inspiration and ideas then you are more than welcome to follow!

Also just wanted to apologise profusely for how shitty I've been at posting, every time I've planned on taking outfit photos something or other has got in the way, which is really annoying as there are loads of outfits I've worn that I really want to post here! Anyway I promise I'm going to be better and post as much as I can. Hopefully I'm also going to start doing some more photo diary type posts, so look out for those soon as well!
