A Promise

 Top | Primark
Jacket | Car boot, DIY
Belt | Primark
Shoes | Matalan

   So, after writing  about my photography kit and having my first photography workshop at uni last week I realised that I haven't been using my camera that it's full potential. I'm quite annoyed at myself actually, as messing about with my camera in manual mode is something I really enjoyed back at college. So I've promised myself that I'll try my best to take better quality photos / not use auto mode!

   Apologies for the grumpy face, not too sure what was going on with it that day..! I threw this outfit together to show off some new(ish) additions to my wardrobe. Bar the top - an old number! Yes, berry has made yet another appearance! I bought this top in autumn of last year from Primark for a pittance, it's such a handy, basic top to layer up with.

   The skirt is from Internacionale and it's a discopant kind of material. I'd seen something similar in River Island, but this one was much more affordable at around £13. The cut and style of it is quite flattering - I actually wore it on a night out the day it arrived! I think it helped to disguise my drinking belly, if you don't know what I'm on about I majorly envy you. I was a bit gutted to see it's not on the website anymore - but you might be able to find it in your local Internacionale.

   The jacket is a DIY piece that I bought from a car boot sale then bleached a little to make it look a bit lighter / less perfect. I haven't really worn it at all yet - it still smells a bit bleachy (annoying!) and I like wearing it most with a skirt but it's been too chilly for such an outfit recently!

   I hope you're all having a great weekend, I'm heading to my boyfriends for a roast later! Can't wait! I've started working a 9 hour shift on Saturdays now, so Sundays are my lie in / resting the feet day. Although I have a ton of reading to do. I'm a tad overwhelmed by books at the moment so I guess I'll be reading flat out before my Sunday roast!
