Dear life, please make everything easier, working at a restaurant until all hours in just not my style ;) Love, Michelle xoxo

In stark comparison to last week where I managed to post almost every day, this week is probably going to be a little lacking, so apologies in advance! I'm going to write my Ways to Wear in advance for you, I know people enjoy those posts, but I think I'm working most evenings until 11pm, so expect me to me a little MIA for the next few weeks.


(Zebra studded deep arm drop top, Realitee @ Topshop;
Black bandeau top, Marks and Spencer;
Black high waisted shorts, River Island;
Heart print tights, Primark;
Necklace, Swarovski;
Gold leaf ring, Primark.)

I'm wearing all of my comfort items and old favourites today. I'm working the evening shift tonight at 5pm, so won't be leaving the house, but I didn't want to slob around in my day pyjamas once again! I'm in love with this top, a whole three years after I first bought it. The fit is so lovely and draped, the material is soft, and the petrol/slate/steel blue colour is one of my favourites. The blue tones also look lovely with camel. I always feel a bit Audrina Patridge when I wear this too, so paired with a black, high-waisted short. The bandeau and deep arm hole look is something I want to wear a lot more the summer, I think it's understatedly chic and so underrated!

I downloaded the 30-Day Shred yesterday and planned on starting it today, but I don't want to risk feeling awful tonight! Excuses excuses ;) I'm definitely going to start in on Friday though, I don't think I'm at work on Friday, or over the weekend for a change, so I'm more likely to be able to have a go at it! I might even step things up and use my wrist/ankle velcro-strap-on weights that I used to wear at dance classes.

Also indulged in a music download sesh last night. Has anyone else heard B2ST's new album, Fiction or Fact yet? I'm in love with Fiction and the orchestra version of it, On Rainy Days and Back to You. Just need more people to squee about it with! Ooh, and I'm currently watching the Gossip Girl season 4 finale, so many good moments. Chuck Bass, marry me please.

  1. Love that outfit. And also, I don't mind you being MIA because of work. Hopefully you'll buy some nice pieces of clothing with that hard earned money that I can enjoy through this blog so it all makes sense you see...Haha!

  15. I'm so with you on the restaurant front :( haha, working til 11 most nights isn't fun :P I love the color of the top too, I may need to invest in a bandeau top instead of bra flashing! xxx

  16. That zebra vest looks so soft and comfy. I also really like the dropped arm holes and bandeau underneath look for summer. I just wish the weather would brighten up again so I could wear it without shivering! Have fun at work :) xxx

  17. Your tights are FABULOUS!!

  18. I have a top like that with the really wide arm holes however it's not half as nice as yours! It's also a realitie tee bought 3 years ago haha but I've never worn it; It looks strange on me!

    I really like those tights, I need to invest in some for the summer I think and ones with the dots!

    Yeah work is a killer at times, I have a stock take soon so it'll be an 11hour shift but they say think of the money but I'd rather be slumped in bed with a nice cup of tea! Have a good time none the less, hope it goes fast for you!

  27. Thanks girls for your lovely comments! I really wanted to reply to everyone individually, but it'll take me an absolute age hahaha ♥ You're all too kind to me!

    Ichiban: I think it's been out for about a year or so now, but it just so happens that a few of us bloggers are starting it together, bit of group motivation and all that! x

    Alyse: I started it today and I didn't find it that bad to be honest (: I've heard amazing things about it though and I really want to tone up this summer! Very true about the job sitch, I'm just such a drama queen, I don't mind it once I'm there!

    Gem: It's a fitness/workout DVD by Jillian Michaels, you do a 20-minute workout each day which is made up of squats, sit-ups, press-ups, jumping jacks, etc. and it's supposed to be amazing to get fit, lose weight! xo

    Katie: Aw thanks sweet, Realitee had so many amazing tops out a few years ago! I literally wanted them ALL. Oh I did stock take yesterday as well, so mindnumbingly dull hahaha, hope work isn't too bad on that shift sweet, I think I'm doing 12pm-11pm on Friday haha ): xo

    Corrie: Thank you lovely! I think I'll be doing the Shred 3 or 4 times a week to fit around work and other plans, so it'll stretch out over my summer. It isn't too bad so far! Haha definitely lol'd at the dolla' comment ;) <3

  28. I just got a black bandeau top like that one and am OBSESSED. I wear it so often and I love the 'peek-a-boo' effect... it's subtle sexiness which is perfect for this season (: Your shorts and tights are amazing! I love this casual outfit.

  29. Danah: It's such a nice, subtle look I think! They're absolutely indispensable in a wardrobe, great to wear with pieces that are a little too low cut (: Thanks lovely. xx

  30. Ah a KPop fan! B2ST's album is really good! I'm loving both versions of 'Fiction' and also '불러보지만' at the mo.
