Tell me the one about the friend you knew

Black blazer: New Look
Cream sheer sleeveless dip hem blouse: C/O New Look
Purple patterned tapered trousers: Asos
Ankle strap pointy court shoes: Primark
Nude studded clutch bag: Present from the lovely Sarah

These trousers are a god send. Why? Because they're like wearing PJs in public. They're such soft material and loose in all the right places. The best £30 I have spent in a long time. Anyone else find that Asos is like crack? I just can't seem to not click that button and place an order. Send help please? Or least donate some cash so it can continue please! Can you believe these shoes are from Primark? They really seem to be upping their game in the shoe department recently. My dad commented they look like bondage shoes but I think that's what drew me to them in the first place. Pretty fierce eh? I was very kindly given a voucher when I popped along down to the New Look press day so I treated myself to this blouse. It's such a great basic for work and going out. At under £13 you really can't go wrong!The collar will look great peaking out of a brightly coloured jumper.

I've spent today eating my weight in chocolate eggs - it'll be hard to get back on the weightwatchers wagon on Tuesday. I seem to have turned into a complete pig since Thursday. Those scales will not be my friend. I'm off out for a Thai tonight with my cousin, his girlfriend and my boyfriend for a bit of bonding. The night will probably consist of lots of drink, too much food and the disbelief of how crazy our family is but yet we wouldn't have it any other way.

Hope you have a fantastic Easter Sunday whatever you do!


  1. Sophie you look a beaut! I've been after some printed trousers for a while now but I don't know if they'll suit me, le sigh.
