Dress: Topshop Sale, £18 // Leather Rucksack*: c/o GRAFEA // Socks: Primark, £1 // Shoes: New Look Sale, £10 // Belt: Dorothy Perkins (old), £15 // Earrings: Urban Outfitters (+ staff discount), £6 // Necklace: Topshop Sale, £4 // Bracelets: Market Stall, £4 (4 pack) // Scrunchie: eBay, £1

It is official that this rucksack is never leaving my back ever again! The lovely people at GRAFEA recently contacted me asking if I would like one of their stunning satchels. I rather quite physically leapt at the offer, as their selection of bags are really quite beautiful. They have a large selection of leather classic, timeless vintage style bags that will be suitable for season after season for years to come. I'm currently loving the rucksack revival trend at the moment, so I opted for the Bianca white leather rucksack. Initially, I was torn between the black or the white as black is usually my "go to" colour, however there's something so chic and sophisticated about a white rucksack that I just had to have it! For example, it automatically dresses up this plain grey marl jersey dress I'm wearing today. It's the perfect size and has enough compartments and pockets to organise the usual chaos of my day-to-day bags.

Enough of my borderline obsession/crush on my new bag! I finally got the grey marl midi from Topshop that everyone raves on about. I did want it when it first appeared in store but I just couldn't bring myself to pay nearing £40 for a plain grey jersey dress! I know Primark released a very similar version, but I didn't like it no where near as much as the Topshop version as it's a bit lighter in colour. Luckily, I spotted this on the sale rail of the Topshop concession in my local Debenhams marked down to £18! It's a little big on me, but at least the belt brings it in a little bit.

I met up for lunch and shopping with the lovely Toni yesterday as the weather was briefly a little but sunnier! We had a little picnic in the park and made daisy chains, as you do at 21 years old! I bought these pink brogues/flatforms/espadrilles/things whilst we were shopping. They were just a mere £10 in the New Look sale! I bought quite a few pink things yesterday as it happens... I didn't even think I liked pink! Apparently that's not the case and I do have a feminine side. These photos were taken with my new tripod, so no more strategically balancing my camera on top of a pile of boxes! Even though I'm shooting in the same location I still notice the difference with the quality of the final images. It also means I can now do detail shots like I've done today!
