If you were to go back in time on this blog, you would find a lot of my outfits get re-worn for different seasons (for example this dress in Winter). I think I've come to the conclusion, less really is more. I'm over the clutter additional clothing items create. However, I also feel I have a good collection and if I start a deep clear out of items I actually wear I'll end up buying more again. Anyone else?? 

That being said, I'm very into long sleeve dresses, they just work for multiple seasons and occasions. That and my cashmere jumpers are probably my favourite items.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm typing this from my courtyard, while doing a massive photo clear out on my phone. Is that not what Sunday's are for?

Can you believe it's almost Halloween?! I'm excited for this season (which is rare), and looking forward to staying indoors more with my own thoughts. I'm very into van life videos on YouTube, so that makes me want to go outside a little bit but mostly obsessing over the different van layouts and tours. Anybody else?

Has anyone started Christmas shopping? I want this year to be more about experiences and less about physical items. So I think that's where my focus shall be when it comes to gifts. 

Wishing you all a wonderful week.  


Black summer dress and evenings in London

I passed my 1st exam, which I had end of August! I took almost 3 weeks off work to study for it, as well as many weekends and spare time I had prior to that. So pleased. Now onto the next one. Feels like being back at vet school. I've got 2 more exams to take before I will have the option to work in the US as a vet. It also is accepted in other countries, so it will be nice to have the flexibility to work elsewhere outside of Europe in the future. 

This weekend was great. Friday evening we went into London and watched Back to the Future, the musical. It by far exceeded my expectations. I haven't watched any of the movies so I didn't really know the story, but I'm definitely planning on watching them now. Highly recommend if you are in London. 

It was still warm enough for Summer attire, and this was the perfect evening but still a bit more laid back outfit. I always forget how much I love London. Yesterday I went kayaking. There are so many rivers and waterways in England and it's such a lovely activity. We bought an inflatable kayak, so lots of flexibility with transporting it in the car. It may be my favourite new thing to do!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I've picked up an extra few hours of work this evening, so I'll be off to that. The vet staffing shortage is so real, I may film a YouTube video about it.
