brb amsterdam









jumper: new look
necklace: urban outfitters
skirt: H&M
fur: new look
jacket: primark
nails: models own pink punch*

Off to Amsterdam in the early hours so this is my last post till I make my return! Basically I'm freaking out about going as I have that tummy feeling when something bad is going to happen. I haven't packed or thought about actually leaving at all so its probably only going to get worse. Plus my hair resembles Frankie Cocozzas at the moment and my skin has broke out in a rash on my arms. Woe is me.

Didnt really know what to wear today. I haven't bought alot of new clothes recently now so I'm trying to make the best of what I already have. I got this cuffed jumper a while ago, its just the perfect lightweight but chunky knit for winter. Still riding the fur stole bandwagon, I think its going to be my favourite clothing item over the next few months. I wear far too much black at the moment, but I cant help but love it. Something so easy and chic, fuss free and effortless.

Also, 20% off on JWLRY until I return on Monday! If you use the code "WEEKENDAWAY". Its not valid on the 3 for £8 mixes, but it is valid on single rings & the five mixes!

  23. Looking rather "rock"... I like it!

    I love these fur stoles.... I love the way you can wear them over any old jacket/coat you have and instantly make it look like a new item! I haven't wore mine yet but can't wait to, don't even care that every girl in the world seems to have one! :-p

  24. Argh I hate that feeling, I went on holiday earlier in the year and had weird feelings about it even when we arrived. But i'm safe and sound so I'm sure you will be too, sometimes the anticipation of somewhere new can make us wary of what we don't know.. but you go and have an amazing time!
    ps: i bloody love your necklace, it's gorgeous xx
