Quitter




Jacket - Topshop
Tshirt and Skirt - Zara
Shoes - ASOS

Tonight I’m heading out for dinner with an old friend and am wearing the above. I love this skirt, I feel slightly business woman in it (I am anything but) but if I’m going to lust after the tailored and boucle looks so much that I purchase items then I need to wear them! I think the jacket and t pair it down nicely anyway.

I know a few people have mentioned the fact that I’ve half given up on tights but don’t worry I’m brave and can handle the cold (in short spells anyway.) At night I think it is pretty acceptable to leave the tights at home and how much would tights ruin this look?!

Well, the shopping ban is over! I lasted a measly 16 days. To be honest, a lot of the items in Zara had my dying to spend my money but when I saw Rachel wearing these gorgeous little shoes I just had to buy them! I’m such a push over and an absolute quitter but the temptation of clothes was just too much for me.

I’ve been thinking of trading in this faux leather jacket for the real deal. I’ve got my eye on one in Zara so the plan is to spend a good few hours in there over the weekend trying on millions of clothes and shoes! Such a slave to Zara these days.

Tomorrow me and my friends have a big surprise planned for another friend, which I am so excited about! A night out tomorrow is probably also on the cards then a nice relaxing Sunday packing up my room.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
