Knitted Orange

Peach High Waist Skirt - H&M
Beige Shirt (underneath) - Primark
Orange Slouchy Knit Jumper - New Look
Brown Belt - Primark
Nail Polish - MUA

So a bit of a cheat 'outfit of the day' because yes, I am using the photos from my Autumn Wardrobe Post a few days ago. But, after putting this together I realised I loved how comfy I was and the two colours together, rusty orange with the peach. This is the skirt from H&M and everyone seems to own at least one.
So I'm wearing this today for mooching around the house and garden or perhaps popping to the shops.

A few of you were asking where the jumper was from and strangely I wear it loads but am yet to feature it in an outfit post. So here it is. If I remember rightly I was looking for it in store and online for ages but had to resort to ebay when I couldn't find my size. But I did get it for a bargain price.

I'm hoping New Look come up trumps again this year and produce some lovely slouchy knits. I'm also after a grungy, fur hood trimmed, khaki parka to see me through the winter so fingers crossed as they had a zillion coats and jackets last autumn.

Today hundreds of students across the country will have received their A Level grades! It's insane to think  that it was a whole year ago today since I was queueing in Sixth Form College, awaiting my fate. It turned out that all my hard work had paid off, very generously in fact as I couldn't have asked for better results.
I was incredibly proud of myself that day. I'd worked harder for those exams than for anything else in my entire life and maybe it sounds silly but I felt so rewarded when I looked down at those 4 little letters. And knowing that my efforts were the reason they were there. (With the help of fantastic tutors and support of my family and friends of course!)
So I hope everyone is happy with their results and ready to celebrate tonight!

"good things will come for those who wait..." forget it.
I honestly believe that good things will come to those who deserve them, but even greater things will come for those who work hard for them.
