Thrifted denim jacket and t-shirt, Miss Shop skirt, Dotti boots, Zara bag, Lovisa rings

Even though it's not usually obvious, I have pretty terrible eyesight. In fact, I'm not just slightly myopic, but usually I can't see 20cm past my nose and am pretty much blind without some sort of visual aid! Anyway, while I've worn contact lenses regularly for about five years, a recent bout of dry eyes had the optometrist prescribe me a combination of eye drops and a break from contacts in favour of glasses. While the good news is my eyes are a little less dry now, I'll probably keep wearing specs to give my eyes a much-needed break from the strain I constantly put them through. After all, it doesn't look like I'm giving up my internet habit any time soon, and if I'm going to be spending money on glasses I might as well use them!

Moving on, this is a pretty casual outfit that I wore on a last-ditch shopping trip before uni started again this week. The story behind this bag is that I got it in Melbourne, since my trusty Sportsgirl satchel was literally ripping at the seams and I was forced to bin it. I'm still in the market for a replacement black satchel with silver hardware, but for now I guess this one will have to suffice. My number one deal breaker when it comes to bags is that it has to fit my bulky DSLR, so this one should fit the bill until I manage to find one that's just right. Funny how I say that, but considering how picky I am I don't think it's happening any time soon!

  3. I like your glasses! I've got a pair myself but I never wear them, because my eyesight isn't that bad yet.

    My dealbreaker for bags is the same as yours, it's so hard to find a nice one which doesn't look like an overnight bag!

  4. Great outfit, and surprisingly my eyesight has stayed pretty much the same since I was about 17. Each time I go to the eye doctor, they always tell me that I don't need a new prescription. Maybe try eating more carrots they're very good for your eyesight.

    1. Thanks Anita :) To be honest I only bring it when I go somewhere interesting, but considering the amount of junk I carry I always need a big bag anyway!

  13. i'm the same with bags, i need to have them big enough to fit all my things in there and whenever i opt for a smaller one it's a challenge. anyway i was going to say that i love your bag just from looking at the photos before i actually read your post, so i think you've found a great one already! but it's always worth holding out until you find the one that's exactly what you want so hopefully it comes along soon.
