autumn instinct // 4 years blogging!

Lee Cooper denim jacket (only $35! Woohoo for affordable denim jackets!), Kmart skirt, Sussan top, Oasap bag, Rubi shoes, scarf and sunglasses 

Hello! Guess what today is?! On this day in 2010, I started my blog and wrote my first blog post! It's been four years since I started blogging and it's been one of the most rewarding and exciting aspects of my life! I just had to share that :)
Isn't the light in these photos simply gorgeous? Aside from the cool change and the beautiful colours in photos, Autumn is one of my favourite seasons because I get to wear scarves, stockings and boot style shoes. It's always nice to get rugged up and cosy and I thought this mustard yellow scarf and the pink bag worked wonderfully together for an Autumnal palette. How have you been embracing the weather where you are? 

This week has been quite good so far; on Monday my friend Anna and I went to a cafe in the afternoon to embrace our ritualistic "ease the sting of the Monday blues" as well as celebrate our awesome English results. I think it's important to celebrate if you get good grades in something you worked really hard for - especially in senior year. Without celebration, it can be hard to stay motivated and continue doing well. I'm really proud of my friends actually, we're all doing really well in our subjects so far this year!
Anyway, I hope you're all having a lovely week. I'll be back again soon - I have to finish off my History research task and pack for Year 12 retreat.

I'm experiencing jacket envy over your awesome denim one! I've been looking for one lately, and just haven't managed to find the right one.
