Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, fashion's been largely absent from my life as of late. I placed a rather large Topshop order which got sent back in its entirety, the white ebay dress from a previous post was the wrong size and went back as well, and the weather briefly went straight from winter to high summer which left me at an utter loss as to what to wear. But now the temperature's dropped a few degrees and, for the first time in ages, I wore a couple of outfits that I didn't actually hate, so I thought I'd share them (apologies once more for the terribly cameraphone quality)

The main conclusion I've reached lately is that my £8 Primark blazer bought no later than 2009 is the single best purchase I have ever made and I will cry when it finally dies. I also don't know why it took me 4 years to purchase a second blazer, they add a much-needed smartness to my wardrobe, which at the moment consists almost entirely of basics.
And one successful purchase I did manage to make- this hat from H&M. This is a big deal as I can never find hats to fit my ridiculously large head, so I'm incredibly pleased that Hennes do theirs in Small, Medium and Large. So far I've managed to wear it to a birthday party which took place in a field. My life is clearly very glamourous.
