It's sort of like a shirt, really, but a lot lighter - it's a fairly thin top, and with that comes very easy creasing(!) but i love it all the same. It's easy to layer, so through summer a simple cami will do, but when winter comes around again i can layer with long sleeves and cardis! I decided to style it with a simple orange top underneath and my leopard cardi over the top. I rolled the sleeves up so it wasn't too much, but did throw on my Red Military Blazer just for an extra layer, as it definitely hasn't been as warm today as it has been the past couple of days! Very dissappointing.
After taking those pictures, i decided that a different necklace would look better, so went for layering these two pendants instead.

002. I've been tagged by Alice to undertake the Handwriting Challenge and i have accepted it with open arms!
The rules are to write the following:
003. My mum has just bought me a gorgeous top from New Look, and i can't wait to show you and test it out! She also bought some Quality Streets for me, so i'm going to munch on those this evening while i watch Embarassing Bodies, well, if it's possible to eat while watching that!

I have to say that i wasn't totally sold when i was rummaging through piles and piles of mixed sizes and a mish mash of short, regulars and long, but it was when i came to try them on that they really stood their ground. They fit me like a glove, i just could not turn them down. They were snug fitting and at the waitband they were well fitting, but also had that give that you need!
While also on my Primark spree, i spyed what i have been waiting for for months - Palazzo Trousers. I've been eyeing them up in topshop, but at their extortionate price i just couldn't do it to my bank balance. SO, when i was presented with all these gorgeous prints - it was too much to bare! I tried on a black pair showered with multi coloured florals but i just fell in love with the gorgeous cut of this grey, spotty pair. They're super floaty and are also quite smooth, and silky. They fit me perfectly and i think they're the first pair of 'bottoms' i have ever bought that aren't in a tall range!
I'll outfit post my new items when i get 'round to wearing them; I hope you're all doing me proud in the shopping stakes, bring on payday next week, eh!?
p.s. I definitely recommend you check out the Miss Selfridge online sale - i'ts packed with bargains!

All in all, i am very happy with the change! Is there anything you're a little scared to take the plunge into?

Blue Inc. Fashion Show / Cambridge Corn Exchange / "Ribbon"'s Stall / Stalls / Thomas Sabo Stall
I also happened to snap up a few buys too! I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous box bag, from a stall at the fashion event. It's from an online shop called Gem's Boutique. She had a fab collection of vintage clothing, as well as bags and a beautiful array of brooches. I could have shopped on, but this bag was only £8.50 and i thought i'd quit while i was ahead, as i had a few things that i needed elsewhere.
I finally got my hands on the Henry Holland tights i've been after forever! I can't wait to take them for a test drive, i plan on wearing the suspender ones when me and the mr go to London for We Will Rock You. I definitely think that you should all check out the new range at Pretty Polly, including the range from HH - amazing; I've got my eye on the fringed hold ups!
I also bought my regular mascara, but to my dismay the already horrendous price has gone up even more, to £16.50! I have now decided that i do not need to be spending £16.50 every time i need some mascara, so i'm desperately searching for a new one. I have very fair, thin eyelashes and the good thing about Benefit's is the very large, bristley brush, i think my lashes need that - has anyone got any suggestions!?
This is the outfit i decided on for my adventure to Cambridge:
Skirt: Topshop / Top: New Look / Blazer: New Look / Tights: Tesco / Necklace: Dorothy Perkins / Scarf: H&M
I have been wanting to wear this skirt for SO long, i've had it for an absolute age and just not been sure how to style it, but inspiration hit me on Saturday morning and i decided to throw caution to the wind and try out this new colour pop trend! I was really proud of this little put together, and this blazer was dirt cheap in the New Look sale and it's done me so well!
Well, i've had a fab weekend - i hope you all enjoyed the sunshine this weekend soon! PS. I finally ordered my Macbook Pro this weekend, in about 3 weeks time i will be blogging to you from beyond a 15 inch high resolution anti glare screen!
