Ha, I know I hardly resemble an animal today but it's a Friday and my mind is locked on getting out of the office so I have no other title to offer.
My boy is going home this weekend so I thought...perfect opportunity to get the animal print out! He hates it, as quite a few men do, I think. The problem is, I love animal print and own so many printed items. I once read an article where two writers were debating on the topic of dressing for yourself or dressing for a partner. The overall outcome of the debate was that you can still dress for yourself, by wearing the items only you love, while doing things on your own, or with friends. I agree with this statement. I don’t want to give up the prints but at the same time wouldn’t want to don myself in full print around my boy, knowing that he doesn’t like it. I don’t think this is me being a ‘stupid girl!’
The weather in London has turned back to grey skies with a chill in the air so I have my trusty tights for the day and plan to whip them off at five. I’m heading up to my friends to plan our summer holiday tonight then out for drinks. I love work to night outfits, so much less hassle than getting changed in the office toilets. YUCK!
So, you may have read from my last posts that the shopping ban starts today!! I’m doing good. 10 hours in and I haven’t bought anything, checked ASOS or lusted after that perfect summer dress. I feel good. My gorgeous TWIGGS is joining me on the challenge. I’m glad to have someone to share the tough moments with and I’m sure she will help keep me on track. Although I have to admit she is such a bad influence on me, check out her blog here and get inspired to spend! She has impeccable taste. Her recent post had me in stitches!!
