Reading: Trainspotting- Irvine Welsh

Today my plan is to organise all the posts I've half wrote, and to plan what to wear on Thursday as I'm going to London to In Love With Fashion Next Top Designer event and the Tim Walker expedition at Somerset House. No idea what I am going to wear!

On Sunday I had a Bears day out with Chris and Dylan- we call ourselves a bear family, me being Mama Bear, Chris Papa Bear and Dylan Baby Bear as we are all very hairy individuals (Dylan being a dog its allowed).  Walking Dylan is probably the best sort of exercise (plus he is the greatest dog in the whole world) following him up and down hills/ over obstacles/ speeding along paths for an hour every day is better than any gym membership- plus on long walks you usually have to carry him back to the car as with only one lung he gets tired quickly. I think I held Dylan's lead for about 3 minutes all day as Chris was enjoying himself so much. Plus they walked on the path with no room for me :(

 At the top of this hill is a massive playground (which dogs aren't allowed in), and this was the BEST hill to ride bikes down- although they have removed all the tree roots and logs and  massive holes now.

Its fantastic having this lovely bog bit of green area in the middle of a town- plus you can actually walk all the way along the River Stort until you reach London (I've not tried this I have always walked the opposite way into Hertfordshire). It was a fantastic weekend to just relax with Chris and Dylan.

Studded jumper: DIY
Red Shirt: Charity Shop
Tights and socks: Primark
Creepers: Camden market (similar here)
Faux Leather Skirt: eBay
Snood: Primark
Necklace: Topman

I might look a little crazy in this jumper but despite how loose the weave is its very very warm- as in much to hot to wear inside! I dressed for comfort and I'm not sure if i am the only one who is a lot more comfortable in a skirt than jeans or anything. This skirt has seen slightly better days (it's a few years old now) and I am in need of an update. I am in love with this skater style leather skirt form Boohoo at the moment (and I am hoping I can have it for Christmas) and I feel that this mini skirt from Boohoo could be a fantastic replacement for my dying skirt. I know that this third skirt isn't faux leather but  look how beautiful this is!
I LOVE Boohoo! I would be a happy girl  if my wardrobe was filled with anything they sold- as its all just amazing!
