Skirt - Topshop
Necklace - Urban Outfitters
I love choosing an outfit to wear for my birthday, it can sometimes be the best thing about it – like a little present to yourself, almost! I posted about this skirt a few weeks ago and decided it would be perfect.
I’m going out straight form work tonight (yes, I am working on my birthday!! Unheard of for me!) Instead of changing later I decided to be brave and wear it to work – currently hiding in my office so no comments as of yet! I’m off to a little pub tonight to drink beer and play ping pong! (the actual game yeah, closest thing to sport I’ve done since P.E. at school!) Tomorrow I want to visit the National Portrait Gallery as I love that place – they have the best painting of Paul McCartney ever, I could stare at it for hours. My closest friends in London are all away this weekend so no girly fun for me! Although I’m sure we will make up for this when we all meet up in Prague next week.
Yesterday, me and the older women I now work with were chatting away about birthdays and being young/old. We were reminiscing about where we thought we would be at certain stages in our lives. All I remember is being about 9 years old and thinking that at the age of 16 I would be really tall, have long blonde hair, big boobs and a boyfriend!?? Careers or homeownership are still no higher on my list today, I’d still really like to be tall with long hair though – I’ll leave the big boobs thanks! They all said their advise to young people would be to start saving early as things only get harder. My advise would be enjoy your 20’s and save the serious stuff for later - alcohol, sex and shopping all get 100 times better in your mid 20’s so don’t waste them.
I’ll be sure to post over the weekend about all the things I’ve been up to. Hope you all have a good one!
Oh – the jacket is back!
