It's the freakin' weekend baby, I'm about to have me some fun

Tweed oversized navy blazer - Primark
Floral silky tee - Primark
Acid wash ripped boyfriend jeans - C/O New Look
White plimsols - Vans

For someone who's not too keen on jeans and tees, I'm getting an awful lot more casual recently. Maybe it's laziness but outfits like this are all I seem to want to wear at the weekend. Now I'm looking back on it I'm not too keen on it but it served it's purpose well. I needed something comfortable to wander around Borough market last weekend. I'm not sure effortless boyfriend jeans really work on me - I feel much more at home in a midi skirt. Hurry up sunshine!

My blog has been redesigned by the absolutely brilliant Gillian - check out her blog! I think she's done an amazing job and I'm so pleased with it. It looks exactly like I imagined in my head and I finally feel proud of it! It just looks so much more professional looking.

I have a pair of spare tickets going spare for a wine tasting event next Tuesday in London. All you have to do is tell me in the comments below what type of wine you'll be and why! Simples! Unfortunately transport can't be provided but you'll have the chance to make the first 'social' wine and it'll be on sale in Tesco. Cool huh?!


  1. I love the new blog layout! You look lovely too, I definitely can't pull off casual without looking homeless, haha. xo

  2. Lovely outfit honey, so casual and comfy yet so pretty! <3 LOVE the Vans, such a fab pair! Have a great weekend! :))
