Writing out all of the items for this post made me realise just how much Asos stuff I have accumulated over the past year… damn you, Premier next day delivery! It makes it too easy, haha.
This was the outfit I wore for my first day at LFW, when I was out taking some pictures for ASAP54. The look was mainly inspired by Saint Laurent AW14, but before I left the office I was told that I looked like a ‘sexy Harry Potter’ – not exactly what I was going for (/at all), but hey-ho! I’ve been dying to wear this cape for ages but it was just too warm over the summer, so as soon as the temperature started to drop I made a grab for it. Unfortunately it actually ended up being really warm that day so I was BOILING… but I guess that’s what I get for putting off wearing it for ages! I really forgot how much I love it, so you’ll definitely be seeing more of it in my outfits- especially as we come towards Halloween (which always has a huge impact on my wardrobe- does anyone else find that?) ^.^
I hope you are all well and had a lovely relaxing weekend! Monday tomorrow (blargh), I hope it goes well for you :3

      Haha, awh thanks lovely- it wasn't so much uncomforatble, I was just really warm ^.^' but I love it so much that I'll definitely be wearing it a lot more, especially as it's getting cooler!x

    No I love the look, it has a kind of witchy vibe (but definitely not in a hp way) and I love that. I need everything in this outfit in my wardrobe to be honest <3

    Gorgeous outfit! I love the combination of the cape and the knee socks, I haven't worn socks like that in such a long time but you've seriously inspired me to dig them out again and rock them this A/W xox

    Being tall (with long legs) I find it so so hard to find over the knee socks that actually do go over my knee and not just cover them, is asos any good with this problem as I think remember you saying you were tall before! Looking glam as always! xx
