Cropped jumper and printed trousers

Cropped jumper - Monki
Printed trousers - Asos
Loafers - River Island
Bag - Zara

As ever, long time no blog! Life just goes too quick sometimes and I'm still enjoying my weekends relaxing rather than worrying about trying to blog constantly, pretty sure I've got my priorities right. Right?! 

Anyway, I've recently celebrated my 25th birthday (hey oldie!) and was thoroughly treated by my family and boyfriend. Lots of meals out including going to my favourites, The Chicken Shop and The Rivington Grill has meant that I'm working extra hard in the gym but it's worth it! Tomorrow my boyfriend and I are going back home to Liverpool which I'm beyond excited for. How I love Easter holidays free from work! 

Anyway, these photos were taken quite a few weekends ago when the weather was pretty lovely in London. Still cool enough for this cropped Monki jumper which I seemingly have been living in, it's so comfy! And hello more printed Asos trousers. As soon as I saw these I knew I had to get them, Asos do the most perfect trousers which always seem to fit like a glove, kudos for bringing these beauties into my wardrobe! I'm also wearing the Larsson and Jennings watch my boyfriend got my for Christmas, it is pretty much attached to my wrist it's that beautiful!

Black Tartan

Jumper - Topshop (old) 
Jeans - Topshop Joni
Boots - Bertie 
Scarf - Urban Outfitters 
Leather Jacket - Topshop Boutique 
Bag - c/o Marc B I haven't posted for a long time! Honestly I've quite enjoyed having a bit of a break, the pressures of working full time and only having one real day off has certainly taken its toll on me and I've literally been living for those weekend lie-ins.
Things have been good, I love my job and I'm really enjoying London right now too considering I'm prone to feeling homesick for Liverpool all too often.
I've also made a few changes to my lifestyle recently, with joining the gym being one and I'm actually quite enjoying getting fit and seeing my work paying off! It also helps break up my week and stops me from just sitting on the sofa working till too late.

Anyway, these photos were taken a couple of months ago when it was warm enough just to wear a leather jacket and jumper! A pretty simple outfit and a combination of jeans and boots that I often turn to when I can never be bothered searching the abyss that is my wardrobe. 

 Now, I don't wear glasses (although I always used to lie at my eye tests because I wanted some so badly!) but my boyfriend does. So when My Optique kindly got in touch asking if I wanted to review these I definitely had him in mind. He opted for a simple, classic style in tortoise shell which definitely makes them just that little bit cooler. They also put prescription lenses in for him which was really good and hassle free which now means he has two pairs of glasses to alternate for different occasions! He definitely recommends them if you're on the look out for a new pair of glasses (or even if you're not!) 

I definitely will be posting more frequently as I've missed being away, although I've been checking up on my favourite blogs daily still! I've also got some reviews that I'll be posting soon too, exciting!

Little Black Bag

Jumper - GAP (old)
Skirt - Zara
Shoes - River Island (old)
Coat - Miss Selfridge (old)
This weekend's been pretty lazy as my boyfriend was working on Saturday and I had so much work to do so spent all day with my laptop to keep me company. Fun! Today we went to try out another newly opened coffee shop in Hackney. It's becoming a Sunday tradition now and I have to say I'm enjoying sampling different breakfasts every week!
This skirt's a fairly new addition as after seeing it on the lovely Isobel I couldn't get it out of my head. I love the dark tartan print and of course the mesh layer underneath, perfect for autumn/winter. Well done Zara!
I also just have to mention my new Marc B bag. How gorgeous is it?! I love their bags and already have a couple but this needed to be added to my collection. It's super classic and surprisingly roomy  with handy pockets inside for my phone and keys (and all the other rubbish I carry around with me!) I also love the fact it comes with a small handle and also a longer one which you can detach depending on the occasion. You're guaranteed to see a lot more of this little beauty in posts to come.

Daniel Wellington

Jacket - Zara (old)
Top - c/o Choies
Skirt - Topshop (old)
Shoes - Office
Bag - Mango (old)
Today we went on a little trip out for breakfast at a local crĂªperie. I went for salmon, cream cheese and spinach whilst my boyfriend opted for the slightly sweeter, waffles with nutella and bananas. Definitely a good way to start a rainy Sunday!
The weather seems to have turned very quickly and i'm embracing the fact that I can wear jackets and coats again. I'm such an autumn lover and can't wait to start whipping out boots and scarves!
This top is from Choies and I love it! So classic with the plain body and lace sleeves, I've worn it so much since I got it already, perfect for the Summer to Autumn transition.
 I also want to give a special mention to possibly my favourite watch from Daniel Wellington. I've been after a more classic watch with a black strap for ages as an alternative from my Michael Kors and this is just as beautiful as I expected (or a bit more so!) It's so elegant and I've had lots of compliments on it already. I can safely say it won't be coming off my wrist for a while (maybe whilst I shower perhaps?!)
Fairly short and sweet today as i'm currently swamped with work. I am however, absolutely loving teaching my year one class, so lovely being able to walk into work with a smile on your face (even if it is 7am!)
