Long time no blog. As I said in my last post I predicted that I'd be MIA this past week because of my move to Montpellier in France. Also, I only got connected to the internet yesterday. Two weeks without the internet was a struggle, let me tell ya. Also, I have been running around constantly like a headless chicken trying to get all of my admin sorted and, needless to say, I am now an expert at queuing. I've been so busy I haven't even had a chance to properly explore the city. It is so annoying because I keep passing some really cool places whilst on one of my many errands but not having enough to time to stop and look. I reckon I need to allocate a day next week for pure exploration and picture taking. 

As you might have guessed by today's photos I haven't had a chance to take any outfit pics yet. However, I have replicated this outfit whilst here in Montpellier but just swapped the Docs for my Converse because it is sooooo bloody hot here by feet would melt if I wore my Docs. When I was unpacking my suitcase my French flatmates laughed at me for bringing jumpers. It's not my fault the internet lied to me! I have also come to realise that my wardrobe is just not built for summer, I had to go out and buy some summer shoes today cos I aint got none. May or may not have bought the perfect pair of Birkinstock knock-offs for 10 euros. 

If you saw my last post and watched my amature attempt at a haul video then you will have seen this gorgeous skirt that I picked up when I was in Devon last month. I have worn it so much already by pairing it with different crop tops and belt combos. I am so excited to wear it with jumpers when the weather cools down a bit. Urgh, listen to me eh? In the lovely sunny south of France and I am wishing for colder weather, haha. My urge to wear jumpers aside, I am hoping the warm weather lasts another month or so because the beach is fast becoming one of my fave spots, hello tan. 

I'll try to get round to taking more outfit pictures and what not, but my posts might be a little sporadic until I get used to my uni timetable and finding a place to take pictures. Until then, a bientot!
