What's this? Two outfit posts in one week? I know, I'm on fire. I really want to start posting regular outfits again. If only to encourage me not to wear the same thing week in, week out. It's the coat and bag again though. They're the first things I reach for before I bound out of the door. Don't worry, the coat is now in the drycleaners so hopefully it'll be in better shape next time it pops up on this blog. 

This weekend I'm finally celebrating my birthday properly. Only a month or so late. I'm going out for dinner in Islington before heading onto Barrio North for some dancing and lots - I repeat - lots of cocktails. It's been one hell of a week so it's very much needed. Sunday shall be spent feeling sorry for myself and whipping up Slimming World friendly recipes. I've decided to take the plunge and attend my first meeting tomorrow. Wish me luck! I'd love any tips if you have any.

What do you have planned for your weekend?

  3. If I had a coat like that I would wear it regularly in this weather!

    I like the colour of your jeans even if I am not a lover of jeans

  4. That jacket is just perfect! Right on point. And the yellow background - perfect!
