Two posts in two days, i'm getting better at this blogging lark haha!

Its my dads birthday today and we are off out for dinner later to the Toby. I think it may be my favourite place in the whole world! Here's an oldie of me and my dad :) Things parents do for the kids eh?
I had a little bit of spare money so I wandered into Primark to see what I could find with my money. I swear I never come away from that place empty handed. It's lethal in there. Anyway I have had my eye on this skirt for a little while, they do it in rust too but they didn't have my size so I settle for grey. I also brought a crop top. Yep a crop top. The white stripe is actually white lace. This is one trend I never thought in a million years I would ever get on board with. I don't think I will ever wear it with any flesh showing but I really like it worn with a high waisted skirt. Plus it was only a fiver! I really like this outfit, I think its going to be well worn over the summer. Its so comfy, I feel like I should be walking along a beach in Thailand bare foooted. I have the bare feet but alas no beach.

Not long till another bank holiday! What has everyone got planned for the Royal Wedding?
