Rusty and Burnt (Colours for Autumn)

A note from Joelle...

If (like me) you absolutely adore the Autumn season, why not make the most of the blustery days and still continue to dress up? The maxi dresses, denim jackets and platform wedges from the Summer may be on their way out... but burnt cable-knit dresses/jumpers, Aztec print, capes and elegant tunics are brilliant for this season. I found that burnt and rusty colours are everywhere on the High Street this season and I really like it as it resembles the autumn leaves.
Still not sure? Check out some pictures below :)

New season

A note from Joelle...
I promise to do a fashion related post soon!!!!
I started Upper 6th (Year 13) of college today, which basically means that I'm in my final year of education before university.
My college timetable is shorter but the hours are going to be much longer as I am going to work really, really hard to get good grades. Last year I didn't really have much confidence academically and mentally to really try my best - but everything has changed now.
Getting a place at uni is going to be very challenging this year as I will be competing with people who did not get a place this year (about 100,000 students) so I'm going all out.

This week I heard someone say : "Fail to prepare or prepare to fail" and that really stuck in my mind because I never really prepare (well) for anything.
But like I said, it's a new season and I've got a good feeling about this year :)
It sounds cheesy but... THE SKY'S THE LIMIT!!
How has everyone been? Liking Autumn (Fall) already?
Keep it real,

Shopping in London Town

A note from Joelle...

On Friday I took a lovely trip up to London's Oxford Street for some back to school shopping and just a general catch-up.
We sat and had lunch in Hyde Park. I had a duck hoisin wrap, salted popcorn, strawberry milkshake and some little sushi rolls from Wasabi. Mmmmm!
We all bought chocolate from Liberty Store and they were rather odd flavours (see pics below)
Because of the great end of Summer sales, I managed to get great autumn knitted jumpers, jewellery and tops from H&M, New Look and the brand new Forever 21!
