I know i know your face but ive forgotten your name, again

Leopard print longline blazer - Next (similar)
Charcoal grey polo neck jumper - Primark (similar)
Faux leather a-line midi skirt - c/o Pretty Little Thing (similar)
Black leather penny loafers - Office (similar)

Considering this skirt graces my body about twice a week - my mum keeps threatening to bin it - it's not really appeared on this blog. I never knew how much I needed a pleather skirt until one appeared in my wardrobe. It's great to wear lounging around at the weekend as shown here and fab to dress up slightly with a blouse and heeled boots for work. In fact i'm tempting to get a back up. You know, just in case. 

Thank the Lord it's February - did anyone else feel like January dragged on? I spent the weekend celebrating my birthday again with my friends in North London. I've learnt a long time ago to organise birthday nights out after payday if you want more than two people to turn up. We spent the night stuffing our faces at Five Guys and dancing to 90s classics at the o2 Academy. Any club that plays the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys in one night gets a thumbs up from me!
