With just days left in Brighton before I “officially” move the majority of my possessions back to Surrey, I’m trying to make the most of living in such a beautiful place, by the sea and with so many boutique shops and places to eat. Having finished my degree (eek!) last week however, I’ve taken a few days just to rest, sleep a little better, and start a new series or two (Mad Men and Game of Thrones I’m looking at you!). But, being the shopper I am, nothing could ease me into celebrating finishing like buying a new pair of jeans, and these super tight Topshop ones tick the all important boxes of being very fitted and very black! Every grown up needs one, right?
If you’ve already scrolled down to the end, you’ll also notice that my new bag is from Paul’s Boutique, and I bet you’re surprised there’s no neon in sight! With a really sophisticated, new direction coming from the brand, I couldn’t be happier to sport such a ladylike satchel; even their signature keychain is ladylike! It seems quite apt to wear such a grown up bag having just finished university, it’s all getting a little serious now! After having a peek at their new bags in general, it does look like the brand has grown up from the days of neon hoodies and bright bags – though there’s still a bit of that left if you are that way inclined! If you have a peek at their new range I hope you’re as pleasantly surprised as I was! Having paraded my new jeans and bag around all of Brighton, a sunny day here isn’t the same without a portion of chips and an ice cream by the sea, which you’ll have spotted over on my Instagram. And to top it all off, while we were sitting by the seafront, I witnessed someone lovingly planting a rose amidst the pebbles…I love Brighton! xx
