STROLLING AROUND ALBERT DOCKS

Liverpool fashion blogger | chunky knit and polkadot maxi skirt

Evening all! Today's shots come from last weekend when I went up to Liverpool with the other half for a few days of shopping, sight-seeing, and of course, plenty of eating. Weekend breaks to unknown cities really do recharge my batteries. There is something about exploring new places that makes me feel like, well, me again, regardless of the tough week I've had. And Liverpool has plenty to keep me occupied!

RED, RED ROSES

Rose print jumper fashion blogger

Being a Yes Girl has its downsides. As well as being knackered pretty much 24/7, I live in a perpetual state of "what if I miss out on the best opportunity of my life?" It's agony. As you get a little older, though, you realise you don't have to be one or the other, it's ok to change your mind and give things a miss because you're falling asleep in your lunch. You are not being a let down.

Despite knowing this, I still don't like letting things pass me by. When I couldn't make the Chiara Fashion blogger shoot last month, I beat myself up about it a little bit, and then compromised to shoot a piece in my free time. Cue this snuggly jumper which has fit seamlessly into my wardrobe of maroons and navy.

#LOVEMYLYST

It's the return of my beloved wishlists today! Since my Pinterest page has become my go-to for bookmarking pieces I like these have got a bit few and far between, but there is something to be said for using wishlists to make sense of all of that window shopping.

Usually what I'm coveting doesn't follow a pattern, but I love how my recent 'pins' wouldn't look out of place as a capsule collection. This Autumn, I'll be filling my wardrobe with plenty of khaki, silver, patent and oranges.

SEEING STRIPES

Armani bag, striped collar shift dress | Jazzpad fashion blogger

Autumn is so beautiful isn't it? Driving through the countryside this weekend was a sea of oranges and reds, so though the leaves don't half make the steps down to my house slippy, they're still so lovely and short-lived. I think even if I called the middle of a city my home I'd still feel the urge to escape to parks and lakes for quiet.

Now, designer wares are very few and far between on this blog. When Jazzpad started back in 2009(!) I was writing about about vintage finds, nosying in charity shops and generally how to exist on a student's budget. These days, I can appreciate the odd designer splurge every now and again - Rosie's Mulbs and Jen's love of Michael Kors certainly spring to mind. Cue this little beauty...
