A rather sheepish hello and 'happy Bank Holiday' from me today...! Outfit post, eh? It's been a while. For the first time in a really long time, I felt like stepping out and shooting an outfit yesterday. A quick browse tells me that it's been a good 4 weeks since my last outfit post and I'm just about beginning to feel guilty. In the fickle world of "fashion blogging" it can be all too easy to feel too old, too done, too plain, too glasses-laden and all that with hundreds of new blogs popping up by the hour. I've still been wearing clothes, though, lucky for you. And hey, personal style is where this blog started!

Truth be told, I've been finding plenty more to busy myself and the blog with this August. The month is nearly over and I can barely even remember when it began! If being a tad MIA on the outfits front of the blog has taught me anything, it's that there is a whole world to be seen when I'm not working hard on perfecting my wardrobe technique. Life is totes too short fo' dat. Heck, I even did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for a cause that I hold very close to my B2UTY/Cube Ent. girl heart. (It was cold.) Maybe it's time to reconnect with the outfit posts, daily chit-chat and the like again. This Bank Holiday weekend seems to have instilled some happy vibes and a more relaxed tone about my day-to-day life again. Let's catch-up on my AWOL August with a list, eh?

× I went away for a long weekend in Brighton for Pride with my best friends, Kayleigh and Wayne
× Breakfast became a numero uno priority again
× I ran my fastest mile!
× I cemented my relationship with the very same guy from this blog post ❤︎
× Rediscovered my love for books and the printed word
× Less make-up, more sleep
× I went to the theatre for the very first time, accompanied by my sehr dapper boyfriend
× Lily and I flew to Glasgow to see David Guetta live
× I came up with my 5-year plan after about 9 months of life worry and fails
× Holiday time is in T minus 4 days!!

So onto what I wore ;; Sundays are a day of rest followed by a few hours with my crazy family in the evening. For the occasion, a denim smock dress and my beautiful Lacoste trainers are about right for the festivities. I'm slowly but surely coming to terms with the fact that autumn is knocking on our doors, so er, the darker red lip and leather jacket came out to play. I'm seriously in love with this jacket now that it's had a couple of weeks to break in -- RI, you did good.

    You've had such a brilliant and exciting August, I wish I could say the same but it's not been too exciting over here. I do however have a few exciting plans over the next 3 months so thats good!

  8. Ah thanks Leanne! I seriously recommend this one, it's got the best gold hardware, slanted pockets and biker kinda style. I honestly think this is the best summer I've had in ages - can't wait to hear about your exciting 3 months lovely!
