I had a little spending spree over this last week, brought some new work clothes although I finish in London on 14th October. Logic much?

Ah well they will do for my next internship/job! Only one thing was brought from Primark, shocker! Must be a sign I am on full time money and no longer a student.

I adore the Primark blouse; they have come up trumps yet again. I love the cute Peter Pan collar. I did originally buy it in cream but it was too small. When I went to change it they only had this colour in my size. I think I prefer it to be honest.

I completely fell victim to visual merchandising with these two bits from H&M as they were both styled together in the window. This skirt is made from such lovely material and is so thick, perfect for the upcoming winter. I can see myself wearing this outfit to death.

Finally found some black trousers that actually fitted me after searching for about 10 years. Surprisingly they are from River Island which was one of the last places I thought would fit me. They are so comfortable and I have come to conclusion, as much as I love skinny trousers, this shape really does suit my figure the best. Still feel a tad self confident in them but I suppose you just gotta fake it eh?

Finally the only next sale purchase that I brought. As I didn't work sale preview I missed out on the chance to have a mooch around and put some things on hold. I could not be bothered to get up early when I was working the late shift so this was all I found as I wandered in about midday. Pretty pleased with it, love the little neck tie. I already have this in white with black trims as I brought it on uniform.

I think my A/W wardrobe is getting there!
