what i'm wearing:
topshop floral blazer
h&m basic t-shirt
primark faux leather skirt
topshop chain necklace

so, the weather is dull and miserable. which ultimately means i try to brighten up my outfits to make it feel like it's summer. i bagged this blazer in the topshop sale for £30 which i was pretty happy with. one of my goals is to stop buying things that look exactly like something i already own. luckily for me, i didn't have a floral blazer. it's a perfect piece to add to my wardrobe as it can be used to jazz up boring outfits; such as a plain white t-shirt and jeans, or it can be dressed up with a dress and heels to wear for a meal. even though winter florals are in at the moment i will definitely make sure i wear this with outfits in the summer = good value for money. i already bought this skirt in october and for it being so cheap at £12 i loved it. it was one of my staple pieces as it went with everything. i am not ashamed to admit i wore it almost everyday for two weeks, then it happened. with the vast majority of items you buy from primark, sooner than later they fall apart. for me, the zip broke. i was gutted as all the other faux leather skirts were either more expensive or they had a shiny finish, which i didn't like. even though i kept looking they didn't get any more in stick so i admitted defeat. however, someone must have been looking down on me because when i was casually looking last week i spotted they had a small amount of them on the rail. even though it's a size 10, and a little bigger than i'd like i'd rather have it than not have it. for the first time ever, i'm not wearing my michael kors watch as i left it at liams by accident. it feels weird not having it on my wrist.

  3. i'm not a huge flower fan, unless those flowers are black or white! but you managed to work with the pattern well! i'm 100% with you on jazzing up basic outfits, i tend to go for leopard print (outdated i know, but i can't part with the beautiful pattern)

    i would love to be too small for a size ten, woman that's tiny!
