what i'm wearing:
notonthehighstreet monaco u necklace*
OASAP clutch bag*
bank heeled shoes

you might be looking at the hyperlink for this playsuit and thinking "long sleeved, say what?" and when i first received it in the post it was. however, the arms were far too big on me so i decided to ask a friend of mine who is a seamstress if she could do a few touch ups to make it more suited to me. and i think she did an amazing job, especially as now i'll be the only one with a the playsuit like this. i am completely drawn in by the print as it's such a gorgeous vibrant colour and brightens up my look instantly. i can see myself wearing this quite a few times over the winter months and especially in the summer when it warms up again!

this is what i decided to wear for when i went to arctic monkeys last tuesday. in hindsight i wish i'd worn ankle boots instead of heels but oh well, i liked it with these shoes instead even if they did hurt a little. before it started me and liam found a nice little place we'd never heard of before called the town wall public house & eatery and oh my i'm so glad we found it. the interior was amazing with titles on each room saying 'the billard room', 'library' etc. and the food we ordered was the best sharing platter i've probably ever had. if you are familiar with newcastle i'd recommend you to go. overall the night was amazing and arctic monkeys were incredible live, which for some reason i wasn't expecting. if you have tickets and there show is coming up for you soon you are in for a treat!
