Is it just me or has the whole clock-going-forward thing really set you in a good mood? It has for me, as it’s a reminder that spring is creeping closer. I am so happy that I no longer have to wear long boring coats and 10000000x sweaters.
I’ve been really digging statement t-shirts this spring which is really weird because I used to think that they were ever so boring and unoriginal, but this dollar t-shirt really got me into them. I’ve got about three of such t-shirts now and I keep flicking between them but today I’m wearing this dollar one with my gorgeous high-waisted shorts that only Miss Selfridge can do.
I mentioned in my last post that I took a much-deserved break from uni which was a nice change since I’ve been spending so much time studying around Christmas. As I reward I treated myself to quite a fair amount this month to last me until summer so yeah, I’m feeling very positive at the moment (and stupid for spending money when I shouldn’t). I posted a picture of my haul on my facebook page.
I admit that I felt pretty lonely on Valentines Day because I wasn’t able to spend it with my boyfriend but we arranged to spend a whole day together when I was visiting my home town. This was what I wore: a MA*RS hoodie paired with New Look jeans, and some heels from Dorothy Perkins. I wear these heels all of the time when I go out because they are at the perfect height for me (as I’ve got awkward feet). I wore my GOLDS Infinity top underneath but zipped my hoodie up so that I had a day and a night outfit! The hoodie was super cozy in this chilly winter that Britain seems to be trapped in so I can definitely see myself hibernating in it until summer.
I was going to leave my blog at that but then I realised… Wait, this isn’t like me… I normally talk quite a lot! So on with the rambling!
Our “Valentines” date was absolutely lovely, I had such a good time. I must admit that I did feel like Barbie when I trotted into Chiquitos – a near Mexican Restaurant that opened up in town – because everyone else was wearing jeans and t-shirts and then there’s me with my extremely pink, fluffy hoodie with cat ears and heels. Whoops. Oh well, my motto is that it’s better to be too glamorous than a slob (hahaha).

I don’t know what that black dot on my eye is but check out my new hat! Hahaha
Me & the boyf as we wait for our food!
I wish I did like Mexican food, I really do, but I felt that there was an overpowering amount of cheese in my dishes. At least I tried it though! Besides, it might’ve been my dishes rather than Mexican food as a whole… I’ll show you what I ordered anyway.
Deep-friend potato skins filled with cheese, salsa and sweetcorn
Chicken wrap filled with Mexican rice, lettuce, cheese and this sauce I can’t remember
Right I can tell that you’re almost drooling onto your lap so I’ll take it as my cue to leave. Until next time! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend xx
I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted; it’s not that I’ve been doing a lot of work in the past week but because I decided to do all of that work in one night. Last night, actually, and it was probably one of the stupidest things I’ve done.
It’s sad that now that I’m back working and doing heaps of uni work that I’m really looking forward to my next break. I’ve got a party to go to sometime in March so I’ve been digging through my wardrobe and found this leopard print dress. I haven’t actually worn it before which is crazy because it’s gorgeous.
I paired this dress with some heels that my sister bought for me from New Look – something else I’ve not yet worn because of this stupid weather – and some gold jewellery (you can get similar boots here). I think I might just wear this for the party! The dress is made from a sort-of sweater/jumper material so I don’t really need to wear anything extra, especially because it’s got long sleeves. I probably would wear tights though in the evening just in case…
I think I’ve fallen in love with this dress. It’s definitely going to keep me warm, and because of the design at the front and back it gives me the illusion of having lovely curves! I’m really skinny so finding something that makes me look like I have curves is pretty difficult.
The only thing I would say about this dress is that it’s a tiny bit too short, so I’d definitely recommend wearing shorts underneath just in case!
So what do you normally wear on nights out? I’m still trying to think of other possibilities, but I’m not too sure whether I’d wear any brands (like MA*RS) when going out drinking.
Before I go: thank you very much to those who took part in my poll! The results were quite interesting and it seems that people still want to see more outfit & makeup posts. I guess that this post is the first of many in future!
Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend! xx
Many thanks to Persunmall for sponsoring me with this dress!
