I Get Around

“Seconds to your elevator from the station
How can I resist that kinda invitation”

This post’s TUNE comes from Dragonette.  I got to say, I now realise that this is a bit of a dodgy title to be posting, it does imply something else, but that is honestly not the case... Moving on haha. Ok, so I don’t really know much of their work other than this song, but I do know thats it’s quite likely you would have heard this lady’s voice on ‘Hello’, the Martin Solveig song, look it up, you’ll know the one.  So yup, this is a blinkin’ tune and I recommend you go and check it out, which you can do so here, and you can have a little look at the website here.

Well then, lets throw another outfit into the mix...

T-shirt: Topshop (£5.00, sale)
Headscarf: Primark (£2.50)
Jeans: River Island (£20.00, sale)
Hightops: Sports Direct (£22.99)
Rucksack: Primark (old)
Watch/Bracelets:Topshop / Newlook (old)

Another day, another outfit.  I am really loving the oversized t shirts at the moment, and as this one was on sale in Topshop for only a fiver (I know, I didn’t think you could get anything in Topshop for a fiver anymore), I most certainly had to have it.  I also love just how thick the material is on this tee, I’m so fed up of buying t-shirts that are so thin you have to wear a vest top underneath, so it’s nice to actually find one which is made out of some proper stuff.  How come things cost more these days and the material is so much worse than it used to be?

Anywho, sorry about that little sideline about clothing quality there but you know, it’s good to get it off your chest.  Yup, so I teamed my lovely quality over sized tee with another sale purchase from River Island, my new boyfriend jeans.  I can’t remember the last time I bought jeans that weren’t skinny, I think it’s been many, many years, but it’s good to branch out every now and again.  Although I do love these jeans I don’t think I will be straying too far from the good old skinnies, these are lovely but you do seem more limited to what they actually look good with.

Finally I stuck on my still shiny and new white hightops and added a headscarf, which by the way I am loving right now, as I have discovered that not only do they look damn cool, but coming up to winter they are an amazing way to keep your little ear holes warm!

So this weekend was pretty ordinary really, went walking and out exploring some our lovely welsh countryside, however, yesterday I went to London, which is as contrasting as you can get.  I went to do a spot of shopping with my sister, visiting good old Camden and Oxford street.  I didn’t really get much, I was all set to spend a fortune, but I blame the weather as it literally did not stop raining all day, booooo!

And that folks is it, hope you enjoyed!

Buh Bye,
