I'm seriously procrastinating at the moment and trying to find anything which avoids doing research for my latest design projects. As much as I love designing, it's so difficult to come up with good ideas on the spot and I'm such a perfectionist! However, I've been keeping really up to date with my blogging which I didn't think would happen so I'm glad about that.

Yesterday I had a dissertation lecture and ended up mooching around the library trying to find some inspirational reading material. I don't usually get that dressed up for Uni but since I'm only in 2 days a week I thought I'd make an effort. I bought this H&M bronze mesh top sometime last year and it's got a really timeless style to it. I thought I'd ruined this top by accidentally putting it in the tumble dryer but lately it's started to retain it's shape again. I love the bronze mesh material used for this top, it's great for layering and has a lovely shine to it. I've paired it with this River Island mesh maxi skirt which I've rolled up to create more of a midi length. I can't believe this is the first time I've worn this skirt! I think I've always dismissed it as I'm not a great fan of tight fitting maxi skirts, I don't have the long thin legs for them! But actually, when rolled into a midi skirt with a loose fitting top it can look quite flattering. I've also worn by fairly new Topshop Astrid boots which haven't left my feet for the past week or so. They were a naughty splurge at £92 but I can already see how much use I will get out of them.
