These pictures are dark and grainy as hell, and I regret the day I broke my camera forever more; but I actually don't mind these photos. In fact, I think I quite like them. And you know what? - I'm just gonna go ahead and say it like a filthy hipster - I like the vintage-y feel, that it looks like I have laced them with three different filters and have added a dusty texture; just so they look like they came out of a rusting box in an attic somewhere. When in reality I only took these photos a couple days ago and didn't overlay a single filter. I guess that's the magic of a shitty camera (Iphone), dodgy lighting and the ability to use the brighten/contrast tool in photoshop (thank goodness). 

I feel this has been the first outfit that I've posted with a real 'autumn feel' which I think is, not only down to the tights, but to layering. Autumn to me is all about dem layers. It's not quite cold enough to crack out the winter coat and not quite warm enough that a cardigan will suffice which, evidently, results in the birth of lovely layers. I was quite glad I wore layers in this outfit as the day turned out to be rather warm so my scarf promptly went in my bag and I had to carry my jacket. It seems I am forever waiting for the weather to turn here in Montpellier. 

This scarf is fabulous, however, and I am sure it will get all the admiration it deserves come winter. It was also completely free as I managed to nab it when one of my friends was having a wardrobe clear out. I am magically always around whenever my friends are de-cluttering their wardrobe and subsequently I end up scoring some awesome items for free. Perhaps I just ooze an I-want-your-clothes-give-me-your-clothes aura.

I was planning on filming another video (cos we all know how good the last one was, lol) but I have suddenly become bunged up with a cold and sound like a frog has taken up residence in my throat. I am hoping I will be able to film something before I fly to England next week which I am really looking forward to 1) because I get to see my boyfriend again after two month and 2) for Halloween, durr. 

Thank you for your awesome comments on my last post, it was great hearing your opinions on recycling clothes and whatnot. Keep being cool and rad. 

Because I have been listening to a lot of Nirvana lately. (Obviously I am still a rebellious moody teenager).

  5. I love that scarf :) you look lovely as always!
    Layering is definitely my favourite thing about this time of year... luckily for me the weather in Wales has been pretty horrible so I've had plenty of time to wear them lately haha.

    1. Oh, by the way, I've also nominated you to do the autumn tag: :) x

  6. I thought the grain was part of the aesthetic. I dig it. Goes to show sometimes we are our own worst critic. Autumn is definitely about dem layers. Thankfully it's that time of the year! :] // ☼ ☯

  7. 1. Your hair looks SO good in this photos.
    2. I love your shoes. I have this colour of Dr Martens in the shoe style, and I have the black version of the boots. I wear them both all the time and they are the best shoes ever.
    3. Your grainy hipster photos are the best.
    4. NEVER CHANGE. <3_<3
