Today has been a laidback, stroll-around-town-with-my-iPod-on, kind of day. I had my last Fashion Freelancer tutorial (gotta love the modules on a fash journo degree) and decided to wander into town to hunt down a few bits and pieces, to justify leaving the house. Isn't it the most frustrating to only have to leave the house for a ten-minute jobby?!

Until I enter the ranks of the working world, this is as good as it gets for me in the print clash realms. A trend that I hadn't really thought much about until I saw the infamous H&M floral print trousers loitering around the Internet, I'm really interested in trying out a few print clashes, perhaps when my wardrobe is all in one place again and I can get a real look at what I have. Long-time readers of my blog will know that I am completely infatuated with heart prints. I grabbed these two pieces out of my wardrobe this morning, and surprisingly really like how the large and small hearts look together, and how the monochrome (although the smaller heart print is pink!) keeps things looking fresh and a little more put-together.

Picked up 'The Lucky One' today after reading a couple of reviews on it over the weekend. Would you believe I've never read a Nicholas Sparks book before? *slaps wrist* I'm yet to see the film, but to be honest, I'm almost certain I'll prefer the novel and don't really want to pay for overpriced albeit ridiculously good popcorn and tickets!

Just a little heads up by the way girls, Ever Ours are introducing a Dress Up box to their online boutique! I'm a huge, huge fan of Ever Ours and their whimsical, Korean and Japanese inspired clothing, so I think it's a great idea, similar to a fashion version of those ubiquitous beauty sample boxes. I know I want one through my postbox!
