My first outfit post! I’ve been writing this blog for a few months  and up until now I haven’t had the confidence to do outfit posts. Im not particularly photogenic, infact I don’t even like having my photograph taken! I do however love putting my outfits together and decided to just go for it. What’s the worst that can happen…

This is what I wore yesterday for a day at the office. The trousers were a splurge on my Wednesday lunch hour (ooops) but I justified them by the fact that the turn ups can be turned down for winter and worn with my new black lace up boots… anyways, if you fancy a pair for yourself, they can be found here. My boyfriend’s reaction was that they make me look like I’m from the forties, which is funny because he was trying to tease me when infact I would quite actually have liked to live in that era!

This afternoon I nipped across to Manchester’s Abakhan store (I will seriously miss living 5 minutes away from this place when I move away from Manchester in August…) to pick up some bits for the current design project I’m working on. It’s a summer project set by my University to design an AW11/12 collection for Anthropolgie.

I was lucky enough to be able to sit in on a colour meeting this week on my placement so was able to see the colour predictions for the AW11/12 season! I’m planning on going cross stitch mad with this project, along with overdosing on fairisle and cable knitting. Here are the threads I picked up in shades of berry, dusky pink, creams and ochre.
