Listening to: Everlong- Foo Fighters

I noticed that my beautiful new setting (this one with all the pretty yellow trees) was starting to well... say goodbye. The leave has well and truly fallen now.  So last week I decided to take a little  walk around the park to see all the trees in their transition and try to spot another cute setting I could use (I'm really getting into Blogging now I hope it shows).

In my search for a natural looking spot of colour I found this really cute bridge. After setting up my camera I stupidly though "mmm.... its on a hill I better move the focus up a bit" and accidentally cut off my feet- ha ha ha. (Then a group of kids walked past laughing at me so I didn't want to re-shot these).

Beenie: New Look
Snood: Primark
Tee: Kong
Oversized Denim Jacket: Charity shop (similar here)
Faux Leather Shorts: Topshop
Tights: Prirmak
Wedge Sneakers: Topshop
Backpack: Gift

My legs are quite long (compared to a shorter body) and I feel like I look really short in these photos. Oh.

I really like my lipstick in these photos- its the Kate Moss Rimmel collection in Wine. I love it. Although its a nice dark red colour, its matte so is really wearable in the day. plus smooth to apply and long lasting.

Can I please jump on the backpack band-waggon? My parents went to Jamaica last year (don't ask me when they go away quite a few times in the year- jealous) and brought me back this bag. It's tended to be my 'practicle bag' something I would use when a handbag would just get in the way. But I have completely fallen head-over-heels in love with it.

Mostly for its practicability- I can sling it over my back and not only forget about it but I don't suffer from such bad shoulder aches, but secondly because its just beautiful. It really set off outfits such as this that's mostly black/ dark colours, but I want another.

With so many too choose from in the shops how is a girl to choose? Do I want  black like this one from Topshop? Or a brown backpack like this one from River Island? Or this amazing leopard print bag from H&M?
I'm really hoping Chris is reading this as I would really really like a backpack for Christmas pretty please (he will read it after I send him the link 100 times :D ).

Its been a very tiring week so sorry for not blogging more frequently- but a mixture of work, family matters, training and applying for a job (which I should be doing now) has taken up so much of my free time. I won tickets to the Vice 10th birthday event tonight but far too busy to go- anyone who's there I hope you have fun.
