Tweed Coat: Topshop ~ Lace Pink Dress: Topshop ~ Patent T-bars: Topshop (again, oops!) ~ Stag Detail Bag: Accessorize

Autumn is coming...
Hello once again! I've been back at University for just over a week now and am still getting into the swing of things (hence the sporadic posting). My room is so close to being all sorted out, apart from the odd bits (WHY do I have so much stuff? - but all essential stuff of course mum & dad!). I have enough teacups and saucers for a street party and I don't know why! I'm Charlie Murray and i'm a hoarder, there I said it. Anyway, other than trying to spend the past week unpacking (and clearly failing) I've been having a lovely time settling into my new house, which is pretty darn special, and having fun with my amazing housemates. I'm just about to start my second week of 3rd Year, and the work is already piling up, i've got so much reading to do that I reckon i'll soon be known as a hermit and start talking to myself to stay sane (not that I don't talk to myself already!). 
Today was our University's Freshers Fayre, and being the co-President of the Tea Society I worked on the stall trying to recruit new members, plying them with sweets, biscuits and of course, tea. It was fun, but who knew talking/standing for nearly 6 hours was so much work, especially when I can just about string a sentence together when talking to strangers. I chose this dress as I needed to look relatively girly and tea-lady-ish (real word!), even if it is extremely see-through and very blowy (cue me walking around in the Cornish wind desperately trying to protect my modesty, ha!). I very nearly ruined the dress too, first spilling tea and then squidging bourbon all over me, i'm classy. I tried to make the outfit a bit more autumnal with my favourite tweed coat, and my new bag from Accessorize. I've been needing a new Uni bag for a while as the lock on mine no longer works and is pretty dangerous when filled with my books and laptop. How cute is the little gold Stag against the greeny-khaki colour, i'm in love! Sad I know, but yes, i'm smitten. 
Enough of my rambling, i'm off to watch last nights episode of Doctor Who, and i'll be accompanied with plenty of tissues and tea after seeing a not-so-secret spoiler on the Daily Mail. Have you all had a lovely weekend, did you watch the Doctor too (I hope it's not as bad as i've heard!)? Oh, I need some help too, the Cosmo Blog Awards are coming up this week, what do I wear?! Help please!!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
(I just had to post this photograph of me being just a little bit silly after having spent a good few hours standing up at the Fresher's Fayre repeating the same sentences over and over again.)
