the graduate

I got my results back today and am pleased with them :) I no longer have to dread that I can't apply for jobs in my field because of their competitive entrance requirements (it's like applying for university all over again!). Now I REALLY feel like a graduate and it's liberating!

Threw together an outfit with the few items I grabbed before I ran to Oxford (again). I wore this dress (& the headband) to Glastonbury and it was perfectly light and airy, even if I did get raging sunburn on my shoulders and chest.

Firstly, here's a photo of Oxford at sunset... so pretty. Would you believe all of these photos were taken on a little 3.2MP camera Sony Ericsson mobile phone?

Headband: Monsoon kids
Sunglasses: H&M
Dress: Topshop
Necklace: From Venice
Belt: Uniqlo
Satchel: Belongs to the boy, from Esprit
Boots: MY NEW BABIES - Loblan

Saw an old acquaintance at a club in Oxford and she had these on in black... I demanded to know where she got them from and ran out the next day to get a pair for myself! I got them in brown because I'm trying to wean myself off black boots (how many pairs do I have already???) and it's a bit more summery :)

Check out the Loblan plaque and the huge metal stud on the underside of the boot... the leather on these is absolutely gorgeous. They were pricey but completely worth it.

Weather is gorrrrrgeous and it hasn't rained yet!
