Changing seasons with toast
Can you believe it's September already? Like Christmas is 3 months away! This year has gone SO fast, I’ve just turned 21 and returned from the most amazing trip to New York (blog post to follow soon) Looking back on everything I’ve achieved up to now has made me even more motivated and determined and I cant wait to see what another year at university will bring.
We're at that awkward time of year where it's sort of warm and sort of not, winter is approaching but it's not quite cold enough for a coat yet. Some people hate this time of year but I really love it, not only is it my birthday (hi hello fellow virgo's) but I think I've nailed how to dress during this up and down weather. I love layering and this time of year is perfect for that without having to wear a big heavy coat. I also love a good pop over shirt or smock. The one I'm wearing here was kindly gifted by my favourite brand: Toast. I tried this on in their Harrogate store when I purchased the jeans I'm also wearing, however I couldn't really afford the smock as well and ended up having to leave it behind. When they contacted me a couple of weeks later offering to gift me something from their autumn collection I couldn't really believe my luck. Toast is a brand who I truly love and value.
Along side launching their new AW 18 collection, Toast have launched a new campaign called A Creative Practice, where they have teamed up with 6 illustrators to design a collection of half done postcards which you can then finish in anyway you like.
Keep an eye out on my Instagram account next week to see what I have created with mine. Or head over to @toast via instagram/ https://www.toa.st/uk/content/features/creativepostcards.htm to see how you can also get involved.
