mini lookbook: a weekend in Milan

I'm calling this mini, because well I'm not entirely sure what officially constitutes as a 'lookbook', but there are only two looks in this one. Anyway, thought I'd share with you some of my outfits from last week's weekend break in Milan. I had to improvise majorly with what I'd packed as the weather ended up being much warmer than anticipated! There I was envisaging myself being wrapped up in cosy autumn knits only to be greeted with warm sunshine of 20 degrees plus! Not that I'm complaining at all, no doubt there'll be plenty of opportunity to wrap up warm here in the UK.

Hello hello hellooooo! I was about to say it's been ages since I last blogged but it's been like 2 weeks...feels way longer. In my absence I've been busy starting my final year of uni, but I've also spent a lot of time thinking and rethinking about my blog.

It's a natural stage of doubt I know all bloggers go through at some point or another; and I know it's definitely crossed my mind in the past.

Do I really want to be posting about my life for all the world to see? Does anyone even care what I wore/bought/ate? How self absorbed have I become where it's got to the point that I have 2074389 photos of myself in various awkward poses in a stupid hat? 

It was a slippery slope really - my pageviews dipped quite considerably for September; a result of lack of posting on my part (even though I try not to get too caught up on stats and whatnot, I couldn't help but feel disheartened), which progressed to beating myself up for not taking time to blog...yeah,
