denim shorts: Topshop
cropped leather jacket: H&M Kids

cross earrings: Topshop
Chelsea boots: vintage

I love this blouse. Though you can't see it, it has a slit back which made me lust for it even more. Teamed with too many even more Topshop goodies, I feel completely at ease in this outfit. It's actually something I wore last week; clearly while the parents went on a garden potting spree, if you hadn't noticed.

Since these pictures I've spent the evening at the bestie's with some wonderful people (screaming Dreamgirls and laughing at Shaun of the Dead), enjoyed a lazy day with the boyfriend, drooled over some oven-melted Camembert and french stick (de-lish), read lots, had hot baths, spotted a hedgehog in the back garden and kept an eye on our baby birds in the front garden, spent the day in Felixstowe with some of the boyfriend's family (sunshine, seafront, fish and chips...) and I've been productive with my life a little too. As you're reading this, I'm just finishing up from work and am heading out for some night-time shopping with the boyfriend (him again - I just can't get enough).

[EDIT: Didn't end up in shopping heaven due to it taking me two hours to get home when it should have taken 30 minutes. Not. Happy.]


  1. Love your shirt!

  2. Love the striped shirt, I can't remember the last time I splurged in Topshop!

  3. Sounds like you've been having quite the lovely time! A perfect mix of socialising and relaxing :) I love the leather jacket, I'd been contemplating raiding the kids' section of H&M for ages, you've decided me! xo

  4. Cute, that leather jacket is looking so good <3

  5. A nice surprise on clothing makes the difference! Show us the slit next time!
