Saturday Night Fun

This weekend has been fairly chilled for me, although I did head out for a bit of food and few drinks last night. Which I soon regretted when my alarm went off at 8.30am for work this morning. Nevertheless, it's always worth risking a slight hangover I say. I've managed to struggle through the day so far without causing harm to anyone/myself/inanimate objects (always an achievement when you're as clumsy and uncoordinated as myself).

I'll take any opportunity to dress up and wear heels. Mainly due to the fact that I stand at a pint-sized 5ft nothing, I can't see over the bar if I don't wear heels! Never a good luck. Unfortunately, I still haven't fathomed how to walk in heels without looking like I'm in pain, so I tend to stick to wedges or wear flats and risk looking like a child.

Last night however, I bravely opted to wear my trusty black strappy Primark heels that I've magically mastered the art of walking in (absolute miracle) and attempted to team an understated outfit around them. As the rain was rather torrential I didn't fancy getting the ole legs out so I gave this pair of River Island leather leggings a whirl. They're a slight step up from the 'safe' option of jeans and definitely a little out of my comfort zone, I have a real complex about the shortness and stumpyness of legs and worry that textured materials make them look bigger than they are. But I think I've finally found the leather leggings for me and at £25, you can't go wrong!

To finish off the look I wore this monochrome check shirt from Primark, I spotted it in Look a few weeks ago and HAD to have it (what Bron wants, Bron gets) and added a H&M blazer for a pop of colour. What do you think?

Leather Loving

Hello! I know, I know.. it has been a good 3 months since I gave this blog any sort of love and attention. I assure you I haven't been sat on my bum though, I've been very busy interning and trying to get my first steps on the career ladder following the end of uni (boo, definitely still mourning that loss). I've been meaning to get back to blogging for ages now and after being on a few too many shopping trips lately, I definitely have motivation and inspiration for A LOT of new blog posts!

I've got a few weeks off at the moment before starting a new job and I'm taking the opportunity to get out and about as much as I can. Today, I've been shopping (no surprises there) in Cardiff and met up with my sister for lunch at ASK (best risotto ever) before heading back home for a chilled evening in front of the telly, bliss!

Although winter is undeniably on the way, the typical British weather couldn't seem to make it's mind up today. One minute it was sunny, the next I peek out the window and it's bloody raining - always a tricky one when trying to plan an appropriate outfit. In the end, I went for this roll neck heart print top I bagged in the Topshop sale a few days ago. I've been admiring it for a while and was so so glad I waited to part with my hard earned cash, because at less the half the original price I couldn't have asked for more! Teamed with my trusty leather skirt, opaque tights and pointed loafers I was ready for all conditions.
