Autumnal Shades;
Hello! I'm finally back doing my outfit posts, and it's with my new favourite pair of shoes. I had these shoes on my Topshop wishlist the other month in burgundy, but ended up buying them in black as I thought i'd get much more wear out of them as they go with practically everything. If you follow me on instagram you'd probably have noticed by now that they haven't really left my feet! I'm so happy that the weather is finally cooling down, with crisper and chillier mornings and evenings calling for a jumper and jacket. Autumn is by far my favourite season. Definitely. I've been in a bit of a rut with my clothes at the moment, feeling like I keep wearing the same things over again, and not being able envisage different combinations, but I tried to make these 'summery' trousers a bit more autumn-appropriate with a burgundy knit and back-to-school shoes.  How do you keep yourself inspired, particularly with fashion and the changing in seasons? I don't think the black shoes *really* go, but oh well, they're comfy and cute! I'm back to University on Thursday, and as soon as i'm all settled in i'm planning on putting a couple of bits up for sale on eBay. I'll put some of the best bits on my blog too, so keeps your eyes peeled!
I'm just about to start my third and final year at Uni, and am already dreading the amount of work that has to be done, with my dissertation on top of module work and trying to fit in enjoying my final year as much as possible. Are there any graduates out there that could offer me a bit of advice on how to stay on top of the workload whilst still keeping sane, or is there really no hope?! I have a post coming up for any Fresher's on how to survive the severe change in lifestyle, hopefully it'll be up this week. 
Ooh, I'm now part of the Motel Rocks street-team, so if you've got your eye on something, you can get 20% off with the code 'charlestown92'! Pretty good, eh? 
P.S. Is anyone as hooked on the Great British Bake Off as we are in the Murray household?! It's one of the best things about the start of autumn, especially with Mary Berry. Oh, and a little bit of drama tonight with John tonight, had a little panic when I thought he was out due to his injury as he is my favourite by far!
P.P.S Apologies for my weird facial expressions, I really don't look like me in the first picture, odd.
Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  9. Perfect, perfect outfit! I was debating buying those flats, think I'm sold now! I love the burgundy knit too, they didn't have it in my size last time I went to H&M :( I often get in a style rut but have found recently that looking up some street style blogs makes me see different outfit combinations I'd not thought of before.xxx

  15. my final year of uni was by far the most hectic so unfortunately there's not a lot of hope because you will have a mountain of work, but if you've made it this far already you'll definitely be able to get through it. :)

  18. Such an adorable outfit. I'm always tempted to buy shoes of different colours, but always cave and get the black or the most neutral colour - better to be safe than sorry :) Good luck with your workload - I've just started my first year and am already dreading all fo the work, but I actually really like having a lot of work to do - is that strange? ahaha.

  21. Start projects as soon as you get them? That was something I finally learned in my final year. At least make an outline so it's easier to come back to when you're feeling social. :) Love your outfit! :) x

  24. i have the love heart version of those trousers and always find it difficult finding a non fussy top to go with them. I think I will definitely be investing in a cream/black cable knit. you look fab as always xxxx
