Feeling blue

Statement diamond collar necklace: Primark
Black tights: Primark
Black leather healed boots: Topshop

This isn't the most exciting of outfits but the chances are if you see me in real life, you'll see this gracing my body. This is the outfit I pull out when I  can't be bothered to rummage through my wardrobe and I know it looks presentable. I wear it at least twice a week - who says bloggers don't have any imagination? My boyfriend likes to refer to this jacket as my Silver Back gorilla coat and to be honest I can't argue with that! It's so cosy and I feel it's the perfect jacket for this time of the year.

This weekend had been one of doing absolutely nothing apart from visiting family and eagerly watching Homeland. I brought Connor it for Christmas and I think i'm enjoying it more than him! I'm absolutely obsessed and could easily watch it all day long. Damien Lewis? Sigh... I say no more. LOVE HIM!

I also recently created facebook page for my blog and it would great if you could like it please :)

Hope you've all had a great weekend!
