Hey lovelies,
I feel as if I haven't done a post in what feels like ages. This summer is definitely turning into a little bit of a bummer with the bad London weather but I guess we just have to make the most it. I'm happy with how the Olympics are going for Team GB though, loving it so far and Tom Daley & Michael Phelps. ;) 

On to the actual post. About two days ago I went into a charity shop with Ally and saw the skirt I'm wearing in the post, I literally saw it and next minute I was at the till paying for it. (Thanks mum). I don't actually own many skirts so I think I shall start to build up a collection of skirts. One thing about it though and other skirts is sometimes they make you look really wide... Just me? I wanted to go for quite a casual look yesterday when I spent the day at Sian's house with Ally. I decided it would be best to just stick with a casual top as the skirt already has a lot of detailing on it. Looking back I don't really like the choice of top even though it's plain I think I should have gone for a plain black vest top but I'll keep that in mind for next time. As usual featuring the famous denim jacket. ;) Definitely has come in handy this summer, it's just something easy to wear over an outfit and it's not too much effort to wrap up in my bag if it gets hot. I wore black tights too as it was quite cold when I was getting ready and even though I'm not wearing them in any pictures I wore some black plimsolls from Primark for £4.00. I was also sporting my Olympic wristband! thanks to the lovely Ally for taking my photos and to the lovely Sian for letting me use her camera, love the quality of the pictures. I really need to invest in a better camera.

Lastly, while meeting Sian in town yesterday I stopped off in Topshop. The funny thing is I have two Topshop's near me and one of them is just ridiculously small and the other is amazingly big. I went to the bigger one yesterday and they still had a lot of items on sale and I've wanted some new rings for a while so when I saw the rings in the last picture I knew I had to buy them. I mean come on, from £7.50 to £1.50 that's amazing. I've seen a few other Topshop accessories that I really want to get my hands on in the next few weeks. Also, I've done a little bit of shopping online so when everything arrives I'll do a little haul of things I've bought. Expect to see more posts from me, I've had a little break... Well just been a little lazy but I'm back. ;)

Don't forget there's still time to enter my giveaway HERE to win a So...?Fragrance set!

  3. Really love your skirt! I like the rings too! I keep hearing about the Topshop sale and I've resisted so far because I really have no money! But if I hear much more about it I may go mad!
