werthers original


Ah, exams are all over and life may resume as normal. The library is back to it's usual empty self and everybody can finally crawl out their rooms to socialise, guilt free. I found out today that I've got a place to study at Amherst Massachusetts for a semester next year which I am very, very excited about. Just as long as I don't cock up my grades hopefully this time next year I'll be stateside with election fever in the air and lots of roadtrip opportunities with various friends also on exchange in Missouri, California and Tennessee.

To celebrate the good news I headed to Topshop and picked up some pretty underwear as well as this top. Because of course my wardrobe is lacking where brown is concerned.. (sort of embarrassing queueing up to buy this when I already resembled a human Werthers Original in brown suede trousers and a beige jumper.)

The top looks beautiful I really dont have enough brown in my wardrobe i have a bit of an irrational fear of wearing brown or orange,i really don't know why but i really need to start introuducing it into my outfits as i always think it looks chic on others.

Ah and congrats on your 'year abroad' news, living and studying in the US sounds like a dream!

LOVE it! Such a sweet top. And I was in a queue the other day, dressed in a cashmere camel jumper, blue jeans and brown boots. I bought a blue skirt and camel coloured cardigan - i felt a little predictable. xxxx

hah! as reminiscent of a werthers as it may be, i still think it's cute. it seems very 60's to me.

Congratulations on the study plans. Which school? Amherst is great. I'm a UMASS grad myself. Make sure you check out Savers in West Springfield and Springfield for some good thrifting.
