Hello! This is a very overdue post indeed; I've missed blogging so much, so luckily this half-term break from school has given me chance to share this weekend's outfit. I'm quite nostalgic for the summer sun at the moment, but of course I can't dress like it's out when the weather's still so bitter cold. So my little fashion tribute to the warmer season has come in the form of summery-pattern tights, which I've tactfully borrowed off of my mother - who has an ever-growing collection of impressive tights. I also cannot stop wearing this skirt at the moment; I found the velvet wonder at my local charity shop, but it was at an odd ankle length. But with a bit (or a lot!) of shortening, I've come to love it quite a bit, especially as it was only at the expense of a couple of hundred pennies! The dress that I've paired with it has also been a trés bien buy of recent - for a tenner from U.O. I was hardly going to walk away!
These boots have also been a blessing. They were dusty and neglected seeing as I've only ever used them when volunteering at the stables, but I'm surprised I hadn't thought of wearing them out sooner - they're so comfortable and have definitely aided me with this busy weekend. I met up with some lovely people yesterday and today I had a peek at the University of Liverpool, and explored the wonderful city (it had already made my top choices shortlist after the head lecturer said: 'if you're a serious culture vulture like me, you can enjoy an evening of the Schubert quartet and a glass of Monte Blanco' and a student representative admitted that there's often a scrabble night!) and, although I'm pretty tired now, my feet aren't feeling any of the pain (I definitely recommend Toggi boots). I am also known to always carry a book around with me, and this weekend's companion was the 'Collected Poems of Ella Wheeler Wilcox'. My wonderful friend bought it me from the local second-hand bookshop after I fell in love with the pretty cover and Wilcox's lovely and optimistic words. I actually hadn't heard of her before coming across this little treasure, but I'm quite sure you can find some of her poems online if you're a bookworm/poetic soul.
Alas, I must away back to revision, but I'm sure I'll post sooner this time. How have you been spending your weekend?
Have a wonderful week,
