Having a surprise Saturday off work today and tonight, which I'm too excited about! Gonna spend some quality time watching the original Alice in Wonderland with my sister, and doing some more Uni work. It's all fun and games in our household today!


(Blouse, River Island via Mum's wardrobe;
Off-white button down vest, Topshop from many years ago;
Shorts, DIY;
Loafers, Primark;
Necklace, River Island;
Lipstick, MAC Cut A Caper.)

Been trying to get to grips with taking photos on a different camera all morning. I'm not 100% happy with these outdoors shots, but I can't actually muster up the energy to go and take some more. Plus, my neighbours must already think I'm extremely vain. I've featured this blouse of my Mum's on the blog before, in one of my first ever outfit posts, but wanted to show it again. I adore the little cat print pattern on it - so Miu Miu! - and it is the perfect sheer material, paired with a sweet, lace panelling at the upper chest area. I usually wear this with a nude bra underneath, but popped a buttonthrough vest on instead. I don't know if I really like it?


I seriously can't get over how lovely it is outside at the moment! I don't remember it being this bright and warm last April, but I'm not complaining, the sunshine makes everything look so beautiful. I had a 2-hr driving lesson yesterday, where my driving instructor let me drive wherever I wanted, provided I did it safely. So I took a leisurely drive, windows down, to Royston, then to Watton-at-Stone (which is so pretty, I'm v. jealous of Rupert Grint!) before coming back to Stevenage.

Thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday, and to everyone who has followed my new blog. I'm hoping to post on there really soon, I just can't quite decide which post to write first! Also, I reached 1300 Google Friend Connect followers this afternoon, gosh aren't you all lovely?! (:

  38. omg i love that blouse! so cute. did you know rupert grint's meant to live in kimpton now not watton? fun fact for you :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  39. That blouse is lovely. I like it with the vest top - it makes a change from blouses with nothing except a bra underneath :)

    Well done on the drive too, I would never have had the confidence to do that in my lessons. I always felt that I needed instructions. Even now I'm not too sure on driving new places on my own knowing that I've been a safe driver for almost 3 years! You'll be looking forward to passing and taking random roadtrips! xx

    Thank you Alyse! I'm always so unsure with outdoors photos, definitely something I want to explore more into while I'm at home. x

    Thanks Caz! Eep sunburn is never good, luckily I don't even burn, or really even tan aha. xx

    Thank you Hayley! It's so sweet with the little pops of coral!

    Lololol thank you Sarah ;) I'm usually at work all day too, I was at work all Friday and it was so hot at the restaurant! Thanks sweet (: xx

    Thank you Jane ^___^ It's been so nice all week!

    Thank you Emma, they feel a bit too saturated for my liking but I can always get handy with the ol' Photoshop in my future posts. Thanks lovely! Hope you're having a great weekend! xxx
