Girls singing on the bus, fellas kicking up a fuss

Quilted faux leather biker jacket: Zara (similar)
Black and white checked collared blouse: c/o Shelikes
Pink scuba midi skirt: Primark (similar)
Black pointed courts: Dorothy Perkins (similar)

As soon as I spotted this lovely blouse on the Shelikes website I knew I had to have it and immediately imagined wearing it with this pink skirt. It made a pretty good partnership dontcha think?! Spring may be trying to appear but i'm not brave enough to be letting go of the black tights just yet! They'll be my comfort blanket for a little while yet.

This weekend has been jam-packed. I went to London on Friday night for the lovely Michelle's birthday dinner. Finally got to sample the delights of Breddos Tacos and they went down a treat. So much so I became an hoover and ended up eating everyone's leftovers. There was no way I could let those cheesy chips end up in the bin! Tonight i'm having a cosy night in with a Chinese for my mums best friends birthday. Then tomorrow i'm back in the Big Smoke for an indoor picnic at Lily's house. I've been ordered by Sarah to bring a carrot cake so that's what i'm baking today!

What are you getting up to over the weekend?


  1. Love that pink skirt! You wear it well :)
