Why are weekends so short? I swear Saturday and Sunday together are no way near as long as any weekday. I blame all clocks worldwide.

Not that I haven't enjoyed it I just wish it was longer. What with being thoroughly spoilt by Chris, having a Mexican with my sisters and general lethargy I've not had a chance to blog (the photos are completely disorganised on my laptop) and barely read a single post!

Now is the time to prep, schedule and plan in anticipation of my holiday (which is just over  week away). Plus packing, buying various holiday beauty essentials and searching for a Egypt proof camera (my dslr is a little too sensitive for sand dunes) with a healthy mix of work in between makes a VERY excited Jodie.

I can't wait to spend two weeks relaxing with my best friend.

Which is the perfect little introduction to this ootd I wore to LFWend which was an amazing day out for us both.

Faux fur: Vintage
Boots: Dr Martens
Bag c/o La Redoute 
Skirt: ASOS (similar here)
Choker: eBay

Comfort was key as I was FREEZING that weekend so I opted for my vintage fur, Dr Martens and a beanie, with my much loved "princess skirt". I felt relaxed and with a pin-up theme (I think it was the midi and fur) and my vest tied into a crop completed the look with a Jodie edge (got to show a little bit of skin).

My bag I was kindly given by La Redoute at LFW and its barely left my arms. I formerly use it practically every day (it brightens up my work days) and I can't fault it. It's the perfect size to fit everything I want/need plus being studded on BOTH sides really sets the standard that other bags I've seen just aren't meeting. In fact I've fallen in love a lot on La Redoute (including these trousers) like this two tone clutch (it's purple!) And this chic looking light brown clutch bag. 

Only problem is I have to keep it away from sticky little fingers as its just so pretty it ends up in everyone's arms on a night out. It's already earmarked for my holiday evening bag (and because I know she's expecting it) I've also just received one I bought bought for my best friends birthday :)
