Not feeling well today so I've been in bed all day, but this is what I wore yesterday. The shoes are a recent Primark purchase, which I was very impressed with because even up close I don't think you'd know they were from Primark unless you'd seen them there. I'm going to try and get an early night tonight as I really don't want to be ill in New York! I think I'll try and get a good night's sleep and then get up and pack in the morning. I'm so excited! I can't wait to get there!

So even though it is definitely still summer it's that time of year when the Autumn and Winter collections are revealed and I am one of the many (I hope) who get very excited at the prospect of Autumnal colours, boots and layers! Some people say you should live in the moment, but there's just something about the future that looks better isn't there?! In reality it will be grey, rainy, slushy and impossible to maintain one's hairstyle come October, but right now those months hold the promise of woolly jumpers, fires and most importantly hot chocolate... mmm :) Perhaps if British summers resembled anything close to what we imagine them to be like from the depths of winter (BBQs, picnics, drinking icy drinks in the garden whilst wearing summer dresses that compliment a sunkissed tan) then we wouldn't all be so keen to move on into Autumn. While the picture of toasting marshmallows over a blazing fire might be a tad romanticised, our British winters are on the whole a lot more reliable than our summers! Which makes planning a winter wardrobe a lot more enjoyable...

Anyway, although it's mad to be thinking past August right now I thought I'd post a few pictures of the A/W collections. I especially love the dalmation themed show at Topshop Unique!

I love the black dress in the last image, especially with those tights! Right, off to bed, night.

If only being busy looked this stylish. And if only I my desk were in the middle of a luscious field, although I'm not sure it would be conducive to a productive environment! Another day, another pathetic excuse. But I really have been busy. I won't bore you with the details but it's mainly consisted of preparations for Edinburgh this August. I know it will be fun and worth it when I'm there but at the moment it's all a bit of a headache. Aside from that, I'm in Wales at the moment with my grandparents and I've sprained my ankle today. So I'm sitting with my leg up watching TV and figured I should stop making excuses not to update! I hate getting out of a routine with something, so as soon as I get home I'll try and get into regular posting again. I've got lots to post!

I went to the south west blogger meet up in Bristol a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I did! The girls were all lovely and we had a great afternoon eating far too much, shopping for far too long in Primark and then chin wagging in Starbucks. We all had so much fun we forgot to take many pictures (bad bloggers!) but I think there may be one or two...

In other news I moved into my new student house last week, which is always fun. I am an organisational freak so the prospect of sorting out a new room and deciding where everything goes is actually rather exciting. I lead an exhilarating life, I know. I'm not actually living there at the moment as I'm away most of the summer but at least I've got the keys now and moved some of my stuff in so I won't have to do it all in September. 

I also need to decide what to pack for New York, which I'm so excited about! (New York, not the packing... although packing has its merits) I'm trying to decide all the things we're going to do and I want to squeeze as much as possible into the week we're there. I'm staying in Williamsburg so I'm looking forward to seeing Brooklyn as well as Manhattan; I've only been to New York once before and stayed in Manhattan and did the usual touristy things. I will definitely be taking pictures galore and hopefully will try to get in a few outfit posts as well, where better to be stylish than NYC?! I'm sure as soon as I get there I'll feel like SJP or Blair Waldorf, with a substantially smaller wardrobe (and budget!) I'm sure!

I'll be back soon, thanks for reading. I'm now trying to compile a Harry Potter quiz for my Mum. She's a teacher and they're having a Harry Potter day in school on Friday. I'm trying to decide how hard I should  make the questions... maybe I'll be really mean haha! I won't even mention the final film as I'm finding it difficult enough to contain my excitement already, without exploding all over the internet as well!
