In an attempt to be a fully-fledged grown-up, you may have seen from my social channels that I very recently moved to London. It's been a fairly comfortable transition from suburban home comforts to a life in the big city, although my adamant refusal to leave my very enjoyable day job in Surrey for a position conveniently closer to my new abode does require I endure 6am alarms and a long-ish drive to and from Guildford, followed naturally by an indescribable longing to catch up on sleep. But when I head back into London in the evening, I always look forward to seeing my flatmates, three of my best friends no less, who are ultimately responsible for keeping me (relatively) sane. And if and when I choose not to hibernate, there's so much of London to explore.
In other important news, Unlimited by JK turned five years old last week, which was a gentle reminder I ought to focus on my blog the teeniest bit more, especially as my move to London has opened up more opportunities for new content. However, given my occupation requires I sit at a computer for hours on end, I dont often fancy doing the same when I'm at home, hence why my fashion week features are weeks late. But I'd rather push for quality than quantity, and I stopped monitoring my page views months ago.
Among my pledges to improve my content and become a better blogger, I'm aiming to post more personal style, certainly now I have friends nearby (as nearby as the bedroom next to mine), who kindly offer to shoot for me. Today's photographs, for example, were taken by Lizzie, who you may have previously seen on my blog wearing a Lolita inspired outfit, or quite possibly some rather sexy Rigby & Peller lingerie. (Speaking of which, we'll finally be shooting our follow-up lingerie feature very soon.)
I have a lot of love for autumn/winter fashion. Or to put it another way, I didn't need to pack away my summer wardrobe, because it doesn't exist. Not only do I have a coats cupboard all to myself, it's entirely possible I own more jumpers than my flatmates combined. Roll-necks are my absolute favourite right now. I like to think of them as the cosier alternative to shirts. As seen here, I like to wear mine underneath an overcoat, with slim jeans and leather boots, which has since become my typical autumn day attire.
