Hello all, apologies for my lack of blogging as of late, I'm useless! It's been rather lovely to be away from the laptop though, as I've mainly been spending my days with family, reading, secondhand shopping and rearranging my bedroom - same as usual, really! I have to admit that I've been feeling a little down about the quality of my blog, but I'm really determined to start posting more regularly, so I'm setting myself the target of posting a minimum of ten times next month. Wish me luck! It would be great if you could comment with ways you think I could improve my blog or posts, I'd really appreciate your feedback! Anyway, H.Samuel recently sent me a watch from Guess to style after noticing that I've never worn a watch in any of my outfit posts before, which was very kind of them. As I expected, the watch was a little large for my skinny arms, but I actually think it looks rather nice so high up my arm rather than the 'usual' wrist! Plus it does add something to my simple outfit. I'll definitely be wearing the watch again, but I'm still on the lookout for something more dainty and vintage inspired to suit my style. In other news, I can't believe it's nearly September, this year has gone so darn quickly!  Love, Jazzabelle.

  6. i'm a bit watch person, feels weird when i don't wear one and i'm obsessed with knowing the time (or just being able to). i really like the face of it but personally i think it would look better on a leather strap.

    another cheap ace outfit, looking forward to getting back into jumpers

  13. you look so elegant and beautiful whenever i see your posts! i love this outfit, can't believe your jumper was 50p, you look stunning. the watch really does look good! something different, it is a lovely watch :) and it's nice to take a few days to yourself sometimes, rearranging your room is a great way to refresh yourself :) i hope you feel better soon, although your blog really is one of my favourites! xxx

  15. beautiful simple outfit! Love the idea of having the watch half way up your arm, mine are so skinny too it can be hard to get one that fits.. your blog is pretty fab as it is! I love when you post about your visits to the V & A, and other little excursions. xx

  22. I absolutely love your jumper, I can't believe it was only 50p! I think the watch looks great higher up your arm as well.

  23. Your outfits are always perfect, I don't see how you could suggest your blog needs improving. Ok, so maybe it would be nicer if you posted more, but every one of your posts is like a little gem.

  24. Ahh they sent me the same watch but in white - I do love it! I took it to my local H Samuel shop and had some of the links taken out of it so it would fit - I'd definitely recommend that if you decide you want it to fit, though I agree I do like the look of it loose as well!
