Last Of The Autumn Leaves

With the nights getting shorter and the days getting longer, its difficult to find time to shoot lately. These past couple of months back in my final year at uni really seem to have flown by and I can't quite believe we're into December already! I managed to catch the last of the autumn leaves when photographing this outfit in my usual spot (Holland Park) a few days ago.
Emerald green is one of my favourite colours for the winter and I'm pretty obsessed with wearing my green fur coat lately. I've been really into keeping my outfits fairly simple with a basic suede skirt and a tank top paired with a statement coat. This top is something I find myself wearing all the time, as its a perfect winter/Christmassy hybrid, adding a little more interest with a gold thread running through the stitching. So easy to style and the effortlessly cool vibe I search for in my outfits.
I'm really missing New York recently and already thinking of planning a trip back for a while after I graduate in the May. I can't believe it has been a whole year since I lived on the Upper East Side with Central Park only a couple of blocks away! Those were the days!

In The Showers

Last weekend I ventured out to Holland Park in the classic British weather (that is pouring rain) to take some snaps with my friend Kit. It isn't often I shoot in the rain, but I actually quite enjoy it. I think the lighting and background blur develops the look of a photo - despite the fact my hair is a little dishevelled.
I spotted this dress in a lot of the H&M campaigns around the beginning of the autumn season and knew I had to have it! Complete with a high neck (do I ever not wear one nowadays?!) and a long sleeve to keep me cosy during the colder months, the length works perfectly to wear with my over-the-knee boots.

Psychedelic Seventies

Nothing says psychedelic '70s quite like this dress right here and I'm a little obsessed with it. Everything from the sassy print, amazing colours and the shape - so cool! I appreciate it isn't to everyone's taste and when my sister was visiting me recently in London, she wondered if I was a little crazy...but I think its a perfect Friday night outfit for a cheeky boogie at a bar with my gal pals. Again paired with these super high boots from New Look which I'm sure I'll be getting loads of wear in over the festive period. 
Uni is getting pretty intense right now and I'm kind of up to my neck in academic reading - the joys! I'm already looking forward to the Christmas break and seeing my family and friends next month.

Wild & Free

Ok, let's talk about the boots. Chunky heel, high leg and studded, pretty much everything I could ask for in a shoe. I'm collaborating with New Look on this post and my next one, bring you two ways to wear these fabulous booties. 
This is a classic day outfit for me and is very much my vibe right now. I seem to rarely leave the house without a turtle neck and a bright red lip. This black top was an excellent Ralph Lauren sample sale find which I bought for £3 whilst doing my placement with the company earlier this year. 
Although its been deadline week for me at uni, I've had a pretty chilled few days and even made time to attend the Urban Outfitters press day as well as going for a blogger dinner with the FarFetch ladies. 
PS - I've started to use snapchat a little more lately to feel free to give me an add - username - @barleycorn

Mustard & Denim

Photography by Ning Loh

When I think of my most-worn pieces this year, my denim mini skirt definitely made the cut, so when when recently browsing for  some new autumn staples to spruce up my wardrobe, it made sense for me to pick up a midi version! I love the dark blue shade of this one and the vintage vibe it gives off when paired with a chunky tan belt. Paired with a mustard roll neck and a leather gilet, I feel it has a modern update on a classic look.
I'm currently in the depths of final year and had to drag myself out of hibernation in order to write this post. Someone please tell me there is a light at the end of the long tunnel as I'll probably be in this state until my dissertation hand-in in May! Pray for me!
