Songs to send you back to school

So August is over and so that means school and university are coming up fast. Personally, I have two weeks before I move into my new house in Brighton ready to start my second year at Sussex University. With this change comes stress, studying and socialising. Therefore I've sort of tailored my August playlist to have a few songs for each of these situations. There are some beautiful and calm songs including ones by Tallest Man On Earth and Michael Moffit (of AsapScience fame), a 25+ minute track for every mood and some more upbeat songs for getting the party started.

Autumn wardrobe wants

fall wants

Here in the UK it appears that summer may be fading into Autumn very soon because the warm days are becoming increasingly rare (they were limited to begin with though). It's OK though because for the first time ever I'm actually embracing the shorter days with open arms. Maybe it is because I'm longing to get back to Brighton and all it's charm (and university I guess) or that I'm really into jumpers and sweatshirts at the moment so this weather change will give me an excuse to buy a huge pile of them. Whatever it is that is making me long Autumn cosiness, I am starting to compile a fashion wish list for the F/W season. I mean a few of the items in this list are way out of my student budget price range but a girl can dream can't she. I've been absolutely head over heels for Acne Studios and Helmut Lang at the moment so they have both made an appearance here (as of course has my favourite Topshop). I hope I can give you inspiration for the next few months or, and I apologise for this, make you want designer clothes you can't afford.

wearing: shirt from new look, jeans from topshop, socks from market.

Working full time, this summer, has led me to cherish days off: lazy mornings where I can take a long shower, drink a lot of green tea and just lie on the sofa listening to gentle piano music. These photos document the feeling of happy aimlessness that accompanies such a morning. I am generally the laziest kind of person so having a regular routine where I can only lay around once in a while is actually a blessing. It means I actually appreciate wrapping a blanket around myself several hours longer than is probably deemed appropriate (especially by my parents who tease me constantly for always looking like a walking duvet).
