Hello from Huddersfield! On Saturday, I moved into my uni accommodation so these photos were shot a couple of weeks in advance (which is why the outfit is definitely not appropriate for the current weather situation). Once I’m properly settled in and my room is looking a little less bare, I am planning on doing a room tour-style post all about the bits and bobs I’ve picked up for my room, as well as a more in-depth chat about how I’ve found the actual move.
I’ve probably said it before and I’ll probably say it again but two of the pieces in this outfit are my best charity shop finds ever! Whilst my dad and sister were at Leeds Festival over August bank holiday weekend, my mum and I spent a day in Durham doing some walking, cake eating and charity shopping and I struck gold…
Luckily for me, and for this post, the trench and dress go perfectly together and I love the combination of the two shades of blue. It’s definitely an outfit which is more appropriate for the warmer weather than the Autumnal weather we’ve been having recently, however, the trench works all year-long- except maybe Winter when I’ll be wrapped up in my faux fur coats.
I styled both pieces with my basket bag from Beyond Retro, which also feels very Summery, however, I do have a post coming soon about styling basket/ straw bags for transitional weather and Autumn; so stay tuned! The shoes were a Depop find and I was instantly drawn to them because of how Vivienne Westwood they are; they’re basically my dream Westwood shoes for a fraction of the price.
