Expect to see lots more appearances of polo neck jumpers in a variety of colours. Prepared to be bored. They're the perfect piece of clothing to battle the cold weather and managed to look pretty chic whilst doing so. I'm in the market for a nice chunky knit one soon. I have a sneaky feeling Zara might come up trumps. This skirt was a sale purchase alongside the burgundy one I posted a week or so ago. It was brought with the intention of wearing it to work without a thought what to pair with it apart from lots of black. I think they grey works pretty well. I'm slightly neurotic with keeping it clean as i'm a bit of a messy pup.

On Thursday I turn 25. Yep I'd now be in the overs in The X Factor and it's my last year for a 18-25 young persons railcard. So there we go I do have a few things to be sad about but one year older means one year more wiser right? I'm not quite where I though I'd be in life at this age but do you know what? I'm having a pretty fab time and I wouldn't change a thing! I'll be spending it eating my weight in cake and stuffing my face with a family meal at Pizza Express in the evening. You can't get a better Thursday!
