"THE WAVES KEEP ON CRASHING ON ME FOR SOME REASON".


Listening to: Hella Good- No Doubt 


Saturday morning I woke up to snow, everything looked bright and clean and felt like it helper scrub the past week of work from my mind. After shopping for a "congratulations" present for myself I took my time getting ready to go out for a proper drink with friends.

It's been a while since we've been out together (3 years probably), so it started with lambrini and shots and for once didn't end up on a toilet floor, but in bed with a cheese sandwich. I woke up the next morning with cheese everywhere.


This is what I wore day time Saturday.




Flatforms: Office
Leg warmers: Claires
Velvet skirt: eBay
Lace shirt: Charity Shop
Sweater: Primark
Bow Tie: Vintage
White faux leather jacket: River Island

Do not be deceived by all the layers- lace are rubbish layers! My shirt and jumper felt useless in the wind. I might as well as went out in a bra and jacket. Lesson learnt. Also my hair IS as dirty as it looks, no way i was going to waste washing my hair to go out in the snow so I put it up into two messy buns.

I'm still trying out the monotone look- I'm still on the fence worried I have too much white in my outfits, mostly because I love black. I'm so in love with this jacket so it's hear to stay but I think I'm going to black-up my outfits more, just so I'm a bit more comfortable.

The bag was actually a VERY kind gift from Frank and Doll- but not in the blogger gift way. I actually ordered a dress (which you will see soon) and after two weeks without its arrival I contacted F&D. They got back to me unbelievably quick (later that evening!!) Found my parcel (it had somehow been returned) and resent my dress with this bag as an apology for the whole thing. I couldn't believe it!! There's customer service then there is this!

It's something I would never have picked up but it's perfect. I've used it a handful of times already since its arrived- the colour is fantastic and its incredibly soft to touch. As such I've fallen in love with clutch bags. It also comes in pink (but I prefer the Orange with my hair), and I love this granny style purse. Then again you can't go wrong with s simple black clutch.
