Action, action, we want action

Hey everyone!
I'm on a high just now after the most awesome cheerleading class! We were focusing on stunts this week and we're getting into "proper" stunts terriotory, scary height and throwing people! It's good too because (not to toot my own horn!) our group is always the best, there's only one guy in the class and because me and him are close in height our stunts are always higher and with his strength there's less risk of anyone being dropped so we can just go for it! Anyway, I'll shut up about cheerleading now because that's not what this blog is about, it's just nice for me because it takes me back to my previous cheerleading days and reminds me how much I enjoy it!
So today's outfit:
I'm wearing; Zara dress, New Look ancient flats, H&M tights, a bracelet which was a gift and Topshop shrug and double belt. You'll notice the amount of junk behind me in outfit pictures has slightly diminished - I've been cleaning!

Close-up of my bracelet:

The warmer weather means I don't have to wear my boring winter coats and so today I put on my faded denim jacket, which I swear I have had since I was 14 and has holes at the elbows the natural way!
I'm going to show you guys some of my new purchases (since there have been a lot!) starting with this ebay dress which I bid on before going out and then remembered about the next day, I won!
It reminds me of Rachel Zoe a bit, but in a good way! I think it's just because it's so '70s and has those long sleeves...
I got this kind of slouchy grey dress from H&M, it was only £9.99 and has (for the moment!) calmed my irrational need for this, this or this, which are of course more expensive!
A close-up of my ugly shirt (my Mum and her friends had like a clothes swapping party at her house a few weeks ago!) me and my brother's friend decided it was so hideous it had gone full circle to cool...we could be wrong!

I love that grey singlet dress. So pretty and practical!
Also your denim jacket is fantastic!

Cheerleading seems so foregin to me. I didn't realise that they did it outside of america. It's really cool that you do it though, it must be a brilliant work out!
