You could get lost in this concrete jungle

Black sheer vest - Topshop (similar)
Green plaid cigarette trousers - Primark (similar)
Flat pointed patent pumps - Zara (similar)

After avoiding Primark like the plague for the past few months, I ventured in there last week to pick up some new pjs and somehow walked out with these. I'd spied a similar pair in Zara a while ago but fortunately my bank account wasn't playing ball and I couldn't afford to splash out. These were a much purse-friendly price at only £12. I'm more than willing to jump on board with tartan this autumn so keep your eye out for many more checks entering my wardrobe.

I wore this to venture to Bounce for a birthday gathering for the lovely Lily and got to have a natter with Aisling too. If you've never heard of Bounce, it's the place where table tennis was said to be invented and is a huge basement offering delicious pizzas and hours of fun on the ping pong tables. Well worth venturing down to one day!
