OOTD: Sparkly Jumper Workwear

Ahhhh it's Monday again, I swear they come around wayyyy too quickly :( I had a pretty lovely weekend, one of my besties was back from a holiday from India so I heard lots of amazing stories from her that made me very jealous! Butttt... I have booked my summer holiday- hooray :D Five girls, two weeks, one Ibiza! Going to be absolutely ridiculous and crazy and brilliant. Only have to wait 5 months haha!

Here's my outfit from work today, since it's still pretty chilly I'm still wearing big knits and the obligatory tights under leggings and an extra pair of socks just to keep warm! This is probably my favourite jumper at the moment, I got it in the after Christmas sales from Topshop and the gold thread running through it make rather special, I feel a bit like a unicorn or fairy or something! I decided to nip it in at the waist with a cheapy Primark belt just to give my body a bit of shape!
Jumper- Topshop £20 (was £45)    Belt- Primark £3    Leggings- Anywhere!                                  Chelsea Boots- Matalan £10 (were £20?)

The bow in my hair was an attempt to keep my hair under control and I think it did a pretty good job, especially since it's just a piece of cutoff material. Work is crazy busy at the moment too, all the lovely new collections for Spring and Summer are being delivered and are being put in store and online. Busy busy bee!

Anyone else have a favourite jumper for the wintery season? Any advice of warm but fashionable outfits I can wear to work?

OOTD: Nottingham Night Out

A couple weeks ago me and some friends went up to Nottingham to help celebrate one of their little sister's 20th birthday.

On the way up we stopped off at OK Diner on the A1 and I had the most amazing peanut butter and chocolate milkshake, it was insanely delicious. If you ever need a pitstop driving on the A1 then I highly recommend it.
While in Nottingham I did a tiny bit of shopping at local vintage/charity shop, where I got a quilted coat originally from River Island for £8!!! And the crazy 80's shirt I am wearing for £4.
It was a really fun night, including running around the club raging, lots of crazy dancing and general drunk antics! RL Grime was playing and was ridiculously good, hence the dancing (which hopefully burned off all the alcohol calories haha).

Shirt- Charity/Vintage Shop £4    CropTop- Sparkle & Fade £16    Shorts- Ragged Priest £20ish    Bag- Vintage £4   Creepers- Underground £89
My new friend ;)
Peter the cat who just seemed to like living at their house even though it didn't really live there!

Two posts in one week I must be having a very good week! I'll try to keep up the good work :P

OOTD: leather & flatforms

This is an outfit I wore to the pub the other evening, pretty simple really! I got the leather jacket for Christmas which I was really chuffed about :) Well actually I got it in the Boxing Day sales after Christmas because I couldn't decide on a leather jacket before Christmas! But it was lucky really since it was half the price in the sales, so better for the 'rents :P

And I'm wearing jeans! Who would have thunk it, I hardly ever ever wear jeans, but this pair from New Look are my new favourites, not that I had a pair of favourite jeans before...

Oh and the flatform converses were from the Boxing Day sales too, so glad I didn't buy a pair before, otherwise I would have spent double on them.

Leather Jacket- Topshop Boutique £90 (down from £180)    Shirt- Urban Outfitters (old)    Jeans- New Look £19.99(I think they are on sale atm)    Flatform Converse- Schuh £16 (down from £32)    
iPhone Case- ebay £5 (I think)

Just another view of the shoes, yum.

That's about it at the moment! Been really bust at work, but hopefully I can post some work outfits up soon (they have really good full length mirrors, perfect for outfit shots haha).
