all is not lost









skirt: primark
jumper: primark
gilet: forever 21
necklace: ebay
bracelet: black tied*
hat: clothing at tesco*
shoes: primark via my mother

About 5 minutes ago I was happily making myself some pizza and casually getting ready to go out for a few drinks and then I realised I hadn't written or edited my blog for today! Cue me running down the hallway squealing and my flatmates being "WHATS WRONG WHATS WRONG"! Im such an idiot sometimes!

Anyway, I had a meeting this morning so had to wear something relatively smart but when I came home I changed into this. Well, sort of I actually wore this dress (from ebay) but it refused to photograph in a way that made it as nice as it looks in real life! So for photo purposes I changed into that leather skirt that everyone and their mother has/wanted! I don't often wear flats, but those shoes I wore to the Company blog awards were very unforgiving on my feet so its hard to walk! Pain is Fashion and all that!  Long time readers might remember the necklace. I rediscovered when I moved out! I used to wear it all the time before it got lost in a corner of my room and I suddenly remembered it and pulled it out my jewellery box this morning! I think it will be making its return in a lot of outfits in the future!

Im going out for a few drinks tonight and then tomorrow I think I'm going to explore London with my flatmate. It always surprises me how many Londoners don't actually go to all the amazing places in London. Although Im a recent Londoner I still haven't done anything cultural since moving here so it will be nice to properly explore the city a little bit. I've hardly visited any of the landmarks in London as I'd actually never been to London until I went to college (so 17)!

  11. Bits I love: hat/hair/necklace combo, the bracelet, your nails.
    I know what you mean, I've loved in London all my life and am still continuously discovering more and more cool places. If you want something cultural, try and see the Hockney exhibition at Royal Academy, it's gorge. Enjoy!

  12. I love that hat, I saw it in Tesco last month and was thinking of getting it in blue, but I think I'd prefer it without the bobble now winter is over. That's such an interesting necklace.

  16. I'm trying to do more cultural stuff too instead of shopping, heading to the Tate and Southbank to see some exhibitions and soak up the ambience. I must ask you when I next see you how your housemates have reacted to your blogging stuff etc, in my last year at Uni I used to take outfit pics in the living room secretly and hoped that my housemate wouldn't come down!
