I love my new shirt. It was a little steep at £20 but after an abundance of new flat drama, I thought I deserved a little treat. You've got to love spending your lunch break at work, evenings and weekends on the phone with idiot after idiot trying to sort shit out, haven't you?

Sorry if I look a little haggard, that's all I'm saying. Onwards and upwards!

The reason my blog has been a little bare lately is because my mind has been occupied with sorting out bills and settling into the new flat. My recent spending habits include a hoover, a water filter jug, cleaning products and vinegar because, well, we realised we didn't have any. Thrilling stuff.

This wishlist is, therefore, a significant form of torture. I've been pining for the River Island cut-out biker boots in white for what feels like forever and an abundance of other white booties have caught my eye too. If I'm going to spend a decent amount of money on a new pair of shoes then they might as well have something more to them compared to a regular black pair, no? I can't say I won't be treating myself come payday.

Are you a fan of white boots? Which pair would you choose?

the perfect pinafore

You can all finally breathe a big sigh of relief. Rosie only went and bought a bloody pinafore dress. 

I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing for an age on which one to go for but the above River Island design called out to me. It's simple, it's lovely, and it was a rather surprising £22. Very naughtily, I also purchased a polka dot crop top (this one) to go with it and I can't wait to wear the combo to work tomorrow.

Have you made a sneaky purchase or two recently?

i fell in love at the seaside

I've never really got to enjoy a bank holiday weekend until now so when my boyfriend left for work today, I left for the seaside. My parents' caravan spot was the perfect option as I only live 15 minutes away now. We enjoyed a scrumptious lunch, had a blissful walk along the beach and, afterwards, they came to see the new flat! Lovely stuff.

What did you get up to this weekend?

My life as of late = whirlwind.

Not only have I moved out of my parents' house and into a flat with the best boyfriend a girl could ask for, but I've landed myself a new job too. You are looking at an editorial assistant for two national magazines: Make Jewellery and Sew. I keep having to pinch myself that all of this is real.

I hope to find a more fascinating spot to take outfit snaps pronto and, of course, I can't wait to show you snippets of the flat itself when things are a bit more in order.

What have I missed in the blogging community?
