And it's not so tragic, if I don't look down

I've not been too well today but it means I've actually had some time to gather some inspiration that I have most definitely been lacking. It's been hard this week to concentrate on me because I went back to uni on Monday and have been trying to get to grips with my work/uni balance again. I did manage to get some photos on Monday when Chris and I went to Bury. Bury is this ridiculously cute/weird town near to Manchester where they have an abundance of charity shops; it's dreamy. I bought a few things which included a granny coat (I promise your gran has one), a green tartan skirt and a patterned make-up bag. It was supposed to be a way to rein in spending on loan day, and I did spend a lot less than if I had been let loose in Urban Outfitters! 
Anyway, the red dress is another charity shop find which was actually a lot longer but my auntie shortened for me, which is always a cool trick for dresses that are gorgeous but that really weird charity shop length. The velvet jacket I absolutely fell in love with straight away and actually thought I would struggle to wear, but have worn it a few times just this week! 
Also, I'm thinking of starting to write foodie-type posts as we tend to eat out a lot, hopefully have one up soon! 

Much love,
