WHAT I WORE:
t-shirt: gap // mesh skirt: urban outfitters // bodycon skirt (worn under mesh): h&m // boots: doc marten // belt: new look // chain necklace: primark // bug necklace: jewelsy // watch: casio // bag: new look
Today's outfit featured one of my new favourite items of clothing (another sale find, of course) - this mesh, pleated midi skirt from Urban Outfitters. Usually I steer right away from anything midi length as it doesn't really do my already short height any favours, but with this I forced myself to step a little out of my comfort zone. I think the fact that it's sheer makes it much more flattering on my shorter self, and I love the look of so many different layers. The belt I picked up in the New Look sale recently for a pound (!!!), and the necklace is also a recent purchase.
Having a part time job means that Saturdays are now usually taken up by frantic college work to try and make up for lost time during the week, but for once I had the weekend work-free and so allowed myself the luxury of a little day trip. Lydia and I made the trek into town ready for the beginning of a sale at one of our favourite Brighton record shops, Resident, and I picked up a good few reduced albums that I'd been meaning to get for a while, as well as a few birthday presents for people. One of my new years resolutions is too try and buy more physical CDs - as much as I think Spotify is the best thing ever, it feels good to properly support the musicians a little more, as well as in this case local businesses. (WOW I sound so self righteous!!)
We hadn't really thought about what to do after we'd tackled the sale but we ended up spending the morning hunting around health food shops (without buying anything), unhealthy food shops (hello, chocolate spread), eating way too much fast food and having a good look around Brighton museum. I've been visiting it since I was a toddler and and so the displays are all getting extremely familiar, but it's still nice to visit every now and then.We also spent rather too long in Waterstones, which I'm majorly falling back in love with - another of my new years resolution is to read more, and so I seem to be spending my life at the moment in this place, adding to my already too long 'to read' list.
Other than catching up on work and room tidying, the rest of my weekend is going to be rather uneventful. I've just got Netflix, so have been binge watching everything imaginable (today's choice was Whip It, which is one of my favourite films and forever makes me want to take up roller derby) and eating potato waffles by the dozen... And on that note, have a nice week guys!! Lots of love xoxox
