Glass

Hey!
Thanks to everyone who's been commenting on our posts and a big shout out to all our new readers! I have had such a busy weekend, but in a good way! My work told me near the end of my shift on Saturday that they can't afford to keep me on, it's a bit sad 'cause I get on really well with my co-workers and (mostly) enjoy the job, but it does mean more time for uni stuff or the opportunity to do something different! I also went to two different parties on Sunday, which kept me busy and means I am really tired today! I spent the morning doing errands of varying degress of tediousness and got very annoyed when I couldn't find a place to recycle glass. A New Years resolution I for got to mention was to be kinder to the environment, mainly by recycling and not using plastic bags at the supermarket. This is what I wore;

My granny boots (a Christmas present from my actual Granny!) and H&M socks, generic black tights and my zipper skirt from Dorothy Perkins. The necklaces and black top are from H&M. There was no colour in my outfit so I added this vintage scarf I bought in the summer of 2007 during a shift at a job I was beginning to hate, the colour cheered me up then and it has the same effect on me now!

And a coat, obviously! It has been really awful here the past few days, rainy and really windy, but today I woke up to clear skies!
This Is the outfit I wore during the day yesterday. I was through in Greenock, at the party for my Granny's 90th and since my family don't get together often at all this meant becoming re-acquinted with people I haven't seen for 10 years (since my Gran turned 80...).

I finally wore my Luella cardigan! I wore it with this dress I got on ebay and my frilly collared Zara shirt, tights from tightsplease and my Topshop shoes.
I got back from the first party and had only about an hour to change for the other one (a 21st!) so I kept the same dress on, added a great t-shirt and my pearls necklaces and Miss Selfridge shoes!

This is what I wore on Friday for lunch at Pizza Hut with people from Uni, since everyone is back in Edinburgh now and then shopping with a friend.

Wearing my Granny boots again, they are so comfy and therefore good for shopping in! I wore them with socks and a t-shirt New Look and a skirt from Oasis.

I tried to take a photo without using the timer and it turned out like this, so I won't be doing it again! That's my flatmate's stuff/bed by the way!

i like it that u choose to wear short dresses and skirts. i think girls should do that more often;)

using my own bag instead of plastic ones at the supermarket is one of my resolutions too.

knitting is (eventually) very rewarding, give it a go sometime! thx for ur comment, x
