I am truly embracing summer and the white jeans! I'll be glad when I don't have to wear them with black anymore. White jeans are a great investment for summer because they will just go with any colour and can be dressed up or down easily for going out and about or going out for drinks/dates etc ... just make sure you get tiny white knickers.
I'm so excited for summer to get in to full swing so I can stop wearing black! This is my best of both worlds, summer pieces like kimonos and silk dresses but in dark colours ... and tights ... I'm so over wearing tights!
Tonight I am heading out for dinner with one of my girlfriends at Bread Meats Bread in Glasgow, I'm so excited I've been dying to go for ages. I hope the summer continues like this, dinner dates and drinks with the girls ... NO BOYS ALOUD :)
I feel like I spend my weekends entirely in ASA. When its the weekends I like to relax and not have to dress up. Truth be told I am much more comfortable in jeans and baggy tops and beanies than when I am all done up. I do love dressing up though so weekends are used for the other side of my style I am a little more casual and comfortable, and ASA is ideal for being comfortable but still looking stylish and not like a slob. This is their limited edition Birthday T-Shirt and honestly, hands down one of my favourite tees ever, so I'm so glad I bought it in the end.
Its been a week week since I last blogged but with the shop launch this week its been busy busy busy, so here is all the fun stuff I've been up to in between and I have posts ALL WEEK of what I've been wearing, there is a lot of Topshop involved!
First, my shift didn't get changed properly which meant I had to get the train in, after about 3 hours sleep and it cost me almost a tenner, apparently the 6:15 train is PEAK TIME? Fuck you Scot rail. Plus I had no breakfast and had to do my make up on the train. Then I had to set up the shop for 5 hours which is hard hard work, which I didn't know about so my dress was ruined in all the dirt and all the escalators were off so I basically walked 9000 over 5 hours. By home time at 12 I was going straight back to bed.
It was just one of those days when nothing goes to plan and you are just not motivated and you want to start the day again. Then I realised, I was actually relieved to have one of those days. It means life is .. Normal. My life is becoming normal again, it feels wonderful. The darkest times of depression are bad, but they make you so appreciative of little things.
When I sat to write this post my sister shouted me through to the bathroom (Where we have a wee radio) to tell me abut the news of Peaches Geldof's passing. I was a huge fan of Peaches style so she was someone I kept up to date with. The news breaks my heart for her family, and children and friends. Such a young mum and woman with a whole life ahead of her. Shes 1 year and 2 weeks older than me, and the age gap between her and her sister is the same as my sister and I. Its very frightening. Her Instagram over the past few days was just like any other, today shes gone.
I sit writing this post thinking about all the good in my life. I am one lucky, and very grateful girl.
