New jacket = big smiles from me :)
This is the first picture taken specifically for the blog and kind of ironically my camera broke so its the iPhone for the time being.
I went to the pub last night for a few drinks and very unlike me I dressed up (for me anyway) and loved it. I think it was just an excuse for me to wear my new jacket which I adore more than anything at the moment. This was a complete bargain, only £15 and it completely sums up how much I am really into print and as I like to do, it makes a real splash. This pattern has been very popular recently and I wanted a dress or top in the print but now lots of people are wearing them so I loved this as it had the print but in an unusual way. It really updates what could be a very boring outfit and adds a bit of fashion to black jeans and a vest top.
I have of course added more to this outfit than was necessary and you can't really see in this picture. I had two necklaces, a sequin bracelet, a blue flower in my hair, blue earrings, a black clutch with a big pink flower on, black shoes with metallic pink heels and my favourite - lipstick. I love the Coco Chanel quote "always take off one accessory before you leave the house" and I do very much agree with it but I cannot live by it myself, I always "over-accessorize" but I think it looks great personally.
As I write this while still in my pyjamas at 1.30pm I realise that while I love getting dressed up, as this post shows, I think I love pyjamas more than anything else. So I thought I would share with you that today is officially a pyjama day and I have no intention of moving much further than my bed and the kitchen. Ah I love being a student. Hope you all are having an equally enjoyable day.
