It is I, Arabella, the adult who has finished university and is no longer in education. How is this possible? So much happened in those 3 years (good & bad, such is life!) and yet, it seems like it's been such a short time since I was trying to decide what on earth to do a degree in.
This was the outfit I wore to the Boohoo A/W Press Day and the Topshop Spring/Summer Collection Preview hosted by Reward Style - I've added a few images of both events above, so I hope you like those. Becca kindly took these pictures outside the incredible venue for the Boohoo press day, where we snacked on canapés and cocktails whilst enjoying browsing the clothes, some of which I've already dedicated a place in my wardrobe to. We then went on to the Topshop event, where there were several rails of beautiful clothes to peruse, yet MORE cocktails to drink and sushi to eat. Clothes, cocktails and sushi. These are a few of my favourite things. (insert reference to The Sound of Music here)
On to the outfit; more from Coast! I feel like Coast is such an under appreciated brand. You might already know from my previous London Fashion Week outfit & my instagram that I'm a fan of their voluminous midi skirts. I saw a preview of this colourful one in a magazine a few months ago, and since then I've been a woman possessed until the moment I got my hands on it. It goes with a surprising amount of things - which I didn't expect; this little white tea blouse, a cobalt blue roll neck & also, a black ruffled bralet. It's definitely a statement piece and not something I'll be wearing to pop down to Tesco (but actually knowing me, I'm not promising anything..) but even though Coast pieces like this aren't exactly inexpensive, they're always so well made and of such high quality - so, to me, they're worth spending a little bit extra on. I also can't see a day in the near future when I'll go off this piece - which is important too.
Well, well, well, my dear blog pals - I've now got absolutely no excuse not to post more frequently, so you'll be seeing a lot more of me! It's actually quite strange how much more I'm enjoying even just writing this, I've not got the little voice in the back of my mind saying 'ARABELLA YOU SHOULD BE DOING UNI WORK!' anymore. I feel so fortunate to now be able to call this blog, something I adore so much , my part-time job. Hooray!
