Hey lovelies 

It's been a busy week from catching up with friends, to working the last final shifts at my work... I'm finally free from the hands of employment! I left my job, which for the majority of the summer, became my second home.. not in a good way! I've decided that when I start my fourth year of uni in about 2 weeks time, I really won't have time for a job and uni is the main priority. This is the big year, heads down, hard work and all  that... 

This outfit is one of my favourites. I picked up the top in a charity shop in Denmark and absolutely love it. From the flattering cap sleeves to the subtle shine in the material, it provides the perfect smart/casual tee which can either be dressed up or down. I've paired with a staple of mine: a classic black lace skirt. You can never go wrong with one of these and they literally go with everything. I got this one from Primark and it was an absolute bargain! Speaking of bargains, I spotted this gorgeous bag in H+M last week and knew I had to have it. I'd been looking for a decent fringed bag for ages and when I spotted this one, it was perfect! 

In other exciting news: My best friend, Georgina and her lovely boyfriend Jamie got engaged yesterday!!! They are currently travelling around Europe and Jamie popped the question whilst in Hallstad, Austria, next to some tranquil mountains and lakes... how romantic! I'm so happy for both of them and wish them all the luck in the world - Can't wait till they are home and we can celebrate!! Happy, happy days!!
