i stand corrected




top: primark
skirt: primark
rings: topshop
necklace: H&M
nails: nubar rosso
lips: mac

Just a pretty basic outfit for me today. I wasn't feeling up to doing anything today my legs were killing from working out yesterday. I did a hour on the treadmill plus weights and my body now hates me. However I ended up going to the gym again today out of boredom. I'm one of those weird people that really enjoys working out!

The heart print skirt a really old one from Primark, it was in the sale for about £3. I do have another heart skirt which I wore here, which is what I initially wanted to wear but upon pulling it out of my wardrobe I think a mouse or a moth could have got to it because it has loads of holes in. Sadface. The top was just one of the basic ones that are like £2-£3? I have quite alot of the Primark basic long sleeve and short sleeve tops, they come in alot of styles and colours, and despite the fact they are pretty basic they are nice and I personally don't find them that bad quality.

Anyway I hope everyone is OK, I'm back at work tomorrow for my one of my three remaining shifts! I'm so gutted I'm missing the Royal Wedding. I think the whole concept is a bit kitch and fun. I'm in no way a Royalist but I think things like this have a bit of British Old Time charm which I really love. My Mum is having a tea party! We have flags all round our living room & shes got a photo of them up on the wall. I do worry about her sometimes!

PS. Updated the shop with some black stone rings & the bird skull necklaces that I wore in this outfit post!

  15. I love the whole Royal Wedding thing as well! I wish it was a holiday here in the States, I'd love to stay home and watch it all day, haha. Although I'm a crazy Anglophile/old lady at heart, so.

    I kind of love the simplicity of your outfit, simple is good for spring!

  21. Good effort on the gym! Yes I'm uber excited for the Royal Wedding and I'm Irish so it's probably illegal for me to be excited or something but I'm not one to turn down scones and cucumber sandwiches! Cute outfit! Love the casuals!xx

  28. Your shorts are darling (and a steal of a deal, too!) and I love your eye makeup. Your mum's tea party sounds fun, the whole royal wedding event seems pretty cool, I wish you would be able to catch it!

  33. I think the primark basics are like essentials for your wardrobe, you need one in every colour and they always come in handy. I know you probably don't have time to read all your comments, but I received my jwlry rings and I love every one of them, I posted about them on my blog :) I think I might even have to order some more!

  44. Ahhh, as much as it may seem it sucks, the pain after a work out is always the best pain. At least you know what you did yesterday definitely worked! I hate it when I feel nothing the day after going to the gym.

    Cute outfit as usual! The shorts are stellar.

  52. I love those shorts, they're so cute! Very similar to the ones I've just posted about on my blog.
    I also enjoy working out although my friends think I'm kind of a freak! haha, its more how awake I feel afterwards which makes me happy, at the time I just feel sweaty - ewww.

  57. Hi! I was wondering if you could update a tutorial about your hairdo, I know that's kind of messy but I love it and all the stuff that you do! Take care! Love from Mexico!

  58. You look stunning! I think sometimes an all black outfit with nice little details can be much better than anything super fancy.
