Outfit: Arizona Eagles.

Jumper: River Island | Shorts: Topshop via Charity Shop | Shoes: Nike C/O Get The Label* | Hat: River Island | Socks: Primark | Necklace: Republic | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Fashion Union | Bag: C/O Marc B.* | Phone Case: C/O Casetagram*

Nobody understands how much heartache and suffering this jumper has caused me. Weeks were spent walking in to River Island and falling in love with it over and over again, only to have to put it down and reluctantly walk away due to the £40 price tag hanging off it; oh the woes of an unemployed graduate. However, after a few weeks of this cycle I cracked. Denying myself this beauty any longer would only lead to further disappointment when it sells out, so I stomped in to River Island, debit card in hand, and moments later walked out feeling dignified but full of remorse, and a further £40 in to my overdraft. We only live once, right?

It's early days yet, but I see this outfit becoming a staple as the weather starts to get a little cooler. Even though I was sweating in the 22 degree heat today taking these photographs, I felt so in my element. I do love a good dose of Summer, but I am definitely an Autumn/Winter girl at heart. I have missed my chunky knits, beanie hats and dark lipsticks over the past few months. Also a lover of a bit of faux fur, I can't wait to dig out my beautiful winter coat again, and I am also happy to welcome these oh-so-comfy and warm Nike Blazers (which are a steal from Get The Label at just £49.99) in to my A/W wardrobe.


Are you a Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter kind of girl?
