Purchases + Juliette Miracle

As I mentioned in my last post, I just finished my fourth year at university and I am on summer holidays for the next three months. It is truly an amazing feeling to have all that academia out of the way and to have this time to focus on other areas of my life. This year has been very demanding and challenging for me in a number of ways so I definitely think I need a rest and some free time now. I am planning to make this holiday as relaxing as possible in terms of work and study. I was considering finding some more work, in addition to the part time job I have at the moment, and I have thought about summer school to reduce my workload for next year. However, I have decided against them both. I was thinking the other day that this will be the last long summer holiday that I ever have. Next year, I will be married and there will be pressure to seek additional work to pay for the myriad of expenses that come with independent living. I will be fully self sufficient in approximately a years time so this is my last summer where I can avoid many obligations and responsibilities. I definitely want these changes to happen. I am very much looking forward to getting married, having my own flat and not being a student any more. These are the changes I have so desperately wanted for years as I felt depressed and as though my life was going no where. However, there are some positive elements about being young and carefree and I hope to enjoy them for the very last time these holidays.

Unfortuantely it has been raining for most of the last week here which is very uncharacteristic of this time of year. I feel cheated of my summer holidays although I'm sure there is some warm weather to come. I really hope it is not raining on the weekend since I am attending a harbour cruise and a picnic. In the absence of outfit photos for the week, I thought I would show some of my recent purchases. I went shopping this week and my final order from Modcloth arrived.

Marc Jacobs Daisy
I've been looking to find this particulary perfume at a reasonable price for many months now. Last week I finally found it at almost half the usual price at a discount chemist. I love it and the daisy bottle is adorable!

Modcloth Three Quarters Past Cute Cardigan
The crochet design on this cardigan is so gorgeous, unique and sweet. It is one of the prettiest cardigan designs I've ever seen and I love it so much. However, it is very hard to style and I'd like some suggestions on what to wear it with.

Modcloth It's Bow-time Cardigan
I love the adorable bows and lace on this cardigan. It is very versatile and will go with many of my outfits.
P1000692

Modcloth Lacy Luck Skirt
Perfect! This is one of the best items I have ever bought and I love it so much. My favourite aspect is the shape. It fits me perfectly and is very flattering to my shape. I've never had another skirt which does that as well as this skirt does. The shape is what sets it apart from other skirts. The lace and large buttons are fabulous details, the length is just right and I love the colour
P1000680


Here are some pictures of my Juliette this week. She certainly has excellent taste in shoes!

Enjoy your time off! It's always nice to just to nothing for sometime, and just relax.

Looks like you've bought some great things as well. I've definitely had my eye on the Daisy perfume for some time.

I so adore the colour of the skirt - and the other fancies, too.
Sorry to hear it's been raining. Hope the sun shines for you this weekend;-)
