I say the right things but act the wrong way

Gold chunky cuffs: c/o George at Asda

This skirt has to be one of my oldest items in my wardrobe. I tend to forget about it for months at a time, find it when I'm rooting around at the back desperate for something to wear and then wonder why I don't wear it more often. I got it way back when I was first working in retail as part of my uniform about 6 years ago and at only around £7 it's certainly got its cost per wear! This unusual top was sent to me from Missbehaver and I love how versatile it's going to be. It can be worn with an all black outfit - the sheer panels keep it interesting- and is plain enough to be paired with a patterned bottom half.  It's going to be a very worn item in my wardrobe I can tell!

Don't forgot to enter story20 at the checkout if you see anything you fancy from Missbehaver. 20% of goes a long way! It means you can buy twice any many clothes obviously. This way of thinking is why my bank account is currently weeping.

This week seems to be  all systems go yet again - I'm longing for a week where I have absolutely nothing planned and I can just hibernate to escape this awful weather. It's my own fault though for being unable to say no. Still suppose you sleep when you're dead right?! I'm very excited to be going along to the AX Paris event on Thursday. Will I see any of you lovely lot there?
