I’m not usually one for black, but I swear it’s filling a good two-thirds of every shelf at the minute so is pretty unavoidable I guess! Dark clothes for Autumn/Winter? Never. I am actually quite liking the monochrome thing this time round, but it’s rare that I’d go colour free! The day I wear all black isn’t approaching any time soon, I won’t go that far. Tights with black cats on today too, like it’s Halloween next month or something?!?
This week I also broke my (self-imposed) outfit rule of no tights between April and October, shock horror. What is the world coming to? Not that said rule is based on anything, other than the reluctance to say bye bye to summer. This skirt was an August purchase that had yet to see the light of day, but even I wasn’t brave enough for totally bare legs today. Of course, I’m British, what else could I possibly do but make everything about the weather? That’s one stereotype I can wholeheartedly agree with. Particularly in this most bipolar of Septembers, when a freezing cold bus stop in the morning is almost as bad as a stuffy classroom by midday. I’m not even gonna say that I wish the weather would quit with the indecision, because that means cold and I am just not feeling that one bit. Dreading leaving the house in the dark in the mornings and coming home in the dark in the evenings, not gonna lie!

Eyeliner game strong today, even if I do say so myself! Always a good day when the ‘flick’ is the same on both eyes haha. Girls you know what I mean. 😉
Time to ramble on about my week too. Despite leaving school just a few months ago, a few of my friends and I popped in for a visit after college on Tuesday. Being there was kinda strange – we all said we still felt like we had a place there, but that it felt like a primary school by comparison to college now. Loved seeing all my old teachers though! AS levels are going well so far too, luckily. Textiles I love to bits (an hour spent on a sewing machine is an hour well spent in my book); maths hasn’t gotten too hard yet and I’m really enjoying it; physics I like too; the different learning style in history is taking some getting used to but all is well, I think (hope). Ironically after Wednesday’s post about the bootcamp I tried, I’ve managed to twinge something in my hip doing exercise in my dining room. Not whilst out being adventurous of course, that would be far too obvious. Anybody else found that their hips crack and pop a lot when doing abs exercises? Not sure I should be cracking quite this much at my age… ah well.
Hope you’ve all had a great week!
