in/casino/out



jumper: primark
skirt: primark
shirt: asos
shoes: topshop
hat: H&M
bag: zara

Sorry for the MIA-ness! Although I have to admit I'm a teeny tiny bit not sorry as I had one of the best weekends I've had since I've moved to London 8 months ago! I really live for the weekends at the moment! It was just one of action packed bank holiday weekends that was the perfect mix between party times and chilling out. Monday ended up at Notting Hill Carnival! The carnival was just amazing and the atmosphere was just crazy. Tonight Im going to see At The Drive-In which are one of my fave bands (this is my favourite song by them! Sorry if it offends your ears!) so should be pretty intense. I always have thing about seeing bands I really like live mainly because all the ones I like seem to have all split up or in the process of splitting up so it's not really the same if you get me. I don't think it will be like how I imagine it in my head, but gosh Im so darn excited! Big thanks to my friend James for sorting the tickets for me!

This isn't what Im wearing tonight, but just what I put on this morning. I bought this skirt a few days ago, its basically a metallic version of THAT primark skirt from last year. I really like it but its quite hard to style! I also bought this bag after seeing it on Kate (credited, eh?) it's just a simple chain black bag which is roomy enough for daywear and easy to take on a night out! It was the only one left in Zara after Kate posted about it so I think it might be the new blogger bag! My other Zara messenger bag has finally bit the dust although I have to admit it did have a really good run! I don't normally like non-leather bags but I do think Zara ones are just lovely!

Anyway I really hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend whatever you did! (:

  1. Omg I bought this skirt too!! And I agree I haven't worn it yet either as I'm finding it a little hard to style, but you look great in it!!

    I was after 'that' Primark faux leather skirt since last year too in black, and I saw this metallic one last week and I just had to get it even though I knew it will be a little hard to style...

  23. That skirt is really nice, I love the colours you get from it. I think Zara bags are lovely too, they feel much better quality than some of the other high street brands

    I went to Nottinghill carnival a few years ago, the atmosphere was insane. I, however, had a hangover and couldn't enjoy it as much as I had anticipated. Haha! I really want to go again though.
