New Look dress, charity shop shirt and belt, Office brogues, Papa Pique et Maman Coud bag
TK Maxx tee shirt, Topshop cardi, Gestuz skirt, TK Maxx tights, Dorothy Perkins trainers, Papa Pique et Maman Coud hairclip, Topshop earrings
Lipsy dress, Zara cardigan, M&S tee shirt and tights, old Converses, and I really can't remember where I got the necklace from... it's a Disney one anyway that matches my rings.
New Look dress, Cache Cache jacket, M&S tights, Dorothy Perkins trainers, Boden scarf, charity shop belt
Items to note- new denim jacket! Hoping to get lots of wear out of this in the next couple of months, and new floral bag, from the amazing French shop Papa Pique et Maman Coud, which my sister and I spend obscene amounts of money in every time we're in France and get the chance to visit one. I've got a load of other random photos from France to post, mainly of food and flowers, but can't really be bothered now and thought that would be too many pictures really. Also got an AMAZING ring on the ferry- oh dear, the approaching student loan payment is obviously making me a little reckless. It's times like this when I remember why I went on a shopping ban!

When the Lord shuts a door, somewhere he opens a window... or in my case, he provides a kitchen worksurface.
Despite the fact that my sister has many wonderful attributes, she still continues to be an appalling photographer. I have therefore resorted to again using the doorway looking down pose, this time a kitchen counter acting as my tripod. This is my new jumper that I got the other day from New Look. I felt that it needed something a bit more exciting than plain black opaques so went for these pink ones because.... basically because it was the best I had out of the tights I’d brought with me. Oh yes, and because it matched my nails which I’d painted the day before. It also makes me really happy that these new trainers my mum got me match the jumper perfectly, because I’m a bit sad. I realised it looks pretty damn 80s but anyhoo, I really liked it, and it was really damn comfy.
Ooh and one last thing- I’ve been watching Mad Men and feeling like a complete failure of a woman in comparison to Joan. She is so damn fricking HOT.

Dorothy Perkins oversized tee shirt, M&S tee shirt underneath, M&S skirt, Office brogues
Firstly, please ignore the towels and toilet and contact lenses boxes. The doorway to my bathroom seems to be the best place for taking pictures; I can balance my camera on the windowsill opposite and get under the light, which is a lot less yellow than in the dining room as in the previous photo. The under tee shirt and skirt are both new; my mum bought them both for £3 in the M&S sale, and although she thought I might not like the skirt, didn't want to pass it up at £3. I was expecting it to look bloody awful since it's a stretchy bodycon one, but actually, it doesn't give me VPL and is ridiculously comfy. Obviously, long loose tee shirts are a must to stop me looking slutty, and I was quite pleased with this outfit. This tee shirt as well is one of my sister's that I pinched which I think she got in a sale anyway, so overall this outfit probably cost £10 or something, minus the shoes obviously. I like the stars cutout detail on the back; normally when I wear this I wear it with a pink tee shirt so the colour peaks through, but didn't feel that would work with the colour palette. So left it as it was. I think I may have been subconsciously inspired by Isabel's AA work outfit, else I'm sure the mirror necklace would have come back out again. I shall try and get some pictures this weekend while I'm away, hopefully perhaps of something more interesting than me flouncing around. Ooh, I've also been listening to Jose Vanders recently since Kathy used her song Peter Pan on one of her videos, and currently can't get her out of my head. Listening to it right now actually. Right, that's more than enough to be going on with, this is probably more than 4 days worth! Oh well.
