daily outfit.

Music to my ears...

Friday, October 01, 2010

So clearly I am rubbish at sticking to my word.. new blog layout up on Thursday I said.. yea well.. what I forgot was that I really need Dave, my lovely other half's help.. and currently he is in Amsterdam for a conference on Human Rights Law.. ( yea did I mention he is pretty much a genius..lol he wont like me writing that but hey im allowed to brag once in awhile. tee hee)

Anyways he is back tomorrow and so I PROMISE it will be up by Sunday!












Peacoat: Liberty Blue boutique, Vest top & Puffball skirt: River Island, Boots: Limited Edition M&S, key necklace: Urban Outfitters, Earphones: Urbanears, Rings: Paris market and Apres Boutique.

Wore this outfit out and about last saturday and then to a friends house warming, this is possibly my favourite coat. I love the colour, the cute buttons and its surprisingly warm which means I get to wear it all year round.

Anyone got any exciting plans for this weekend? Id love to hear them? Im heading to a friends house for a night in with some girlie friends.. Chinese, leap year on dvd, wine..oh yea and an attempt to dye my hair. Scary! i usually go to a salon to get my hair dyed, Ive been going to the same colourist for like 8 years now.. but my colour is fading too fast and I cant afford to fork out the money every 4/5 weeks.. so ive decided every other time ill do it myself or get my best friend Jo to do it for me! This time ill be trying out nice & easy light auburn... wish me luck!

  15. sadly I have no plans this weekend other than to relax. I think on Sunday I'm going to go out to dinner with my hubby, since our 10 years of being a couple is coming up next Tuesday and we won't be able to go out that day.

    I love that jacket you're wearing a lot. It is really pretty.
