Smokey layers

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my friend Cassie’s graduate exhibition at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. A couple of days earlier we had been shopping and I picked up a long tunic-style skirt and some lace brogues from H&M, which I decided to incorporate into my outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever bought such inexpensive shoes before but they are beautiful and surprisingly comfy.

A gap in the clouds

Manchester is known for its cloudy skies and constant drizzle so when you get sunny days in March, it’s pretty much compulsory to take pictures. It was particularly nice to not have to carry a jacket around!

Glasses

My plan to catch up on blog posts hasn’t been going so well due to having to move again and being without internet but I’m going to give it an other go.

Earlier in the year I started wearing glasses! I’ve known I needed them for a while but it still came as quite a shock. When I was younger I didn’t really like the look of them or think that I’d ever want to wear them but I actually think they’re a great accessory (as well as something I need to improve my vision).

In most cases I don’t need to wear them out but I got two pairs, just in case.

The first pair is quite simple, flattering to my face shape and goes with almost everything.

The second pair was a bit of a gamble but I wanted something more colourful with an interesting shape so I went for a modern cat eye by red or dead.
