#68

So here I am sticking to my guns and blogging for the second time in two days; it's a miracle I can tell you...



Jumper: glamorousUK, Blazer: River Island, Jeans: Topshop, Brogues: New Look, Bag: Next, Gold Necklace: vintage

I suppose this is a part ootd, part haul post-I'm not sure if one new item counts as a haul but it'll certainly make me feel better if I call it that. 

I bought this jumper on Saturday from Jolly's in Bath; a shop full of mostly designer temptations, make up counters cluttered with expensive luxuries and foundation-clad young women. However, being the poor little me that I am, this jumper is not designer and is in fact by the label (and now internet boutique) Glamorousuk.
It's the first item of clothing I've purchased even partly on outside opinion in a while as I tend to find once I start asking for opinions I lose confidence in my own wardrobe choices, but I'm very grateful to my friends for recommending this particular embellished delight to me for my winter wardrobe.

With statement jewellery in many a metallic hue making a vast appearance this season, I liked the up-to-dateness of this jumper and thought it would bring a little bit of specifically A/W12 into my wardrobe.
ANNNND I saw the one and only Katherine Jenkins sporting the same piece on 'surprise surprise' last night. WIN.

Today I went for a smart look with black brogues, blue skinnies, and my go-to RI blazer. My trusty waxed jacket proved to be a perfectly good outer layer, and my everyday school bag seemed to match the tan lining  on my blazer pretty well so overall, I was quite happy with my outfit today and even received a few compliments for it. Happy Elise :-)

I hope all your Monday's weren't completely terrible!
