 Cardigan - TU 
Top - New Look 
Skirt - M&Co  
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
Bag - Accesorize 
Shoes - Office  

This is what a wore for lunch and shopping on Sunday. Surprisingly the skirt is from M&Co, or as I still call it Mackays, which isn't somewhere that always comes to mind when shopping as they often seem to aim for an older age group. It was actually my mum that found it in the depths on a sale rail and got me it for Christmas. It's always worth having a look in shop you don't normally venture into as you can be surprised! The is very full, soft and swishable (I believe this has become an acceptable term!). It'll be lovely to wear with a colourful top in summer. 


The satchel was a steal at £7.50 in the sale. I had my eye on it for some time. It is deceptively roomy which is always a good thing. I really like the unusual cobalt blue colour. I love a pair of brogues. My shoe wardrobe is mainly brogues. I spied these studded beauties awhile ago in Office but at £60 it wasn't to be so I went home and bookmarked them to keep on watch for when they went on sale. They did and became another present. I must give a mention to the prompt Office delivery service. It was so quick despite the sale just kicking off and being the weekend before Christmas! They were ordered the pretty late the Thursday night and arrived on Saturday afternoon! That was just standard delivery too, hadn't expected them to come before Christmas at all.

General Fiasco - Waves

I had been looking forward to seeing General Fiasco again for months and with them being one of my favourite bands I was somewhat heartbroken when they announced their tour due to start this week was cancelled. I was supposed to be seeing them at King Tuts tomorrow night so here is the video they made for their single Waves which has shots from King Tuts, which I was at but can't be seen in the video. I hope it isn't the end for the band as they make great music, play great shows and are all really lovely and friendly guys who deserve success they've worked hard for. If anybody is after any other song suggestions just drop a comment and I'll be more than happy to give you some more. 

This was actually my first experience of having a band completely cancel a gig before. Has anybody else ever had the unfortunate experience of a cancelled gig?


  1. I love finding things in shops that I don't usually go to, makes it less likely you'll have that awkward moment when you walk past someone wearing exactly the same thing as you. This outfit is adorable, I love the polka dots and those brogues are gorgeous xo

    1. Thank you :) It's always seems to be the kind of shop I only ever go in with my mum that I find good gems like that! Most shops are selling the exact same things that the others are so those awkward moments are inevitable these days.
