OOTD| Good As New

Jumper: Dorothy Perkins | Skirt and bag: Primark | Boots: Office

It's only going to get colder I keep telling myself; so it makes sense to hold off on the faux chinchilla and 60 denier tights and enjoy bare leggedness and coatlessness whilst I still can.
Apart from the rain we've been experiencing lately, autumn is my favourite season and I've thoroughly enjoyed digging deep into the depths of my wardrobe to pull out my old faithful knitted jumpers. This silvery-grey-lavenderish knit from Dorothy Perkins has been loyal to me over the years. It's probably a good 5 years old now but still as good as new. 
With this spending ban that I'm currently on, I am hoping my spending or - rather over-spending habits will change for the better. If I'm really being honest, I have far too many clothes and I don't actually get any wear out of some of them; I tend to wear the same things over again then declare that I am in need of new garments even though my closet is overflowing! I am going to be really strict on myself this time round and ensure I'm making good use of what I already own. 

As you can see my A-Line skirt addiction is still going strong and this denim number from Primark was purchased shortly after the black cord one (worn here). It's just so easy and fuss-free and easily paired with pretty much everything I own. I love it! 

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to the weekend. My throat is sore, my head is throbbing and I just need my bed. I've got the lurgies big time!
