Talking to the songbird yesterday...

New Look top & beaded bracelets // DIY'd skirt // H&M jacket // Chockers shoes // Topshop necklace // Eclectic Eccentricity bracelet

Apologies for the awkward facials and terrible roots, I hope they don't offend you! My hairs getting sorted on Thursday but there's not much I can do about the face I'm afraid. This skirt was originally a dress from River Island but I cut the top off. I actually prefer it this way. The top of the dress was baggy and shapeless and made my chest look MASSIVE. Like I'm not top heavy enough. It looks a million times better styled with a fitted top and actually gives me a waist. Plus it's mint green shade is perfect for the pastel trend this season. RESULT. This outfit has the potential to be girly and cute but, seeing as I'm not a particularly cute person, I've thrown in my biker jacket, black tights and chunky heeled boots to toughen it up.

The gorgeous feather bracelet I'm wearing is from Eclectic Eccentricity. I won it in a giveaway run by the lovely Kat on jemima.and.ted. I never win anything and I love this bracelet so I'm one happy lady! They have loads of unusual and pretty jewellery on their website, well worth a look! I'm lusting after the quirky Dino-might Dinosaur earrings - the only problem is I can't decide between the T Rex and the Brontosaurus! #dinosaurproblems

My week off has finally landed and I could not be happier! Sometimes I think you just need a break from the day to day monotiny of real life. (I think that's the word I mean?) I don't have much planned for my time off apart from a shopping trip with my Mum and sister, and catching up with friends. Last night I celebrated my 1st day of freedom with a curry date with the boyfriend. Rock n roll!!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!


  1. I love that DIY skirt and how you were brave enough to cut it up - kudos from me 8) xoxo

  2. I love what you're wearing! I thought it was a dress til I read that you made the skirt, that's so clever I'd never be brave enough to do that I'd just give the dress to charity or something. I love the bracelet too! xxx

  3. Cute skirt, I love this colour <3
