grey-wrap-top-pretty-little-thing

I’m just about the latest latecomer to the co-ord party, oops.  What took me so long?  Party doesn’t seem to be over yet though so I think I’m ok. I now want every single one though.  Who knew there could be so many variations on a matching top and skirt?!?  Prints are all well and good but I think it’s the flat colour, simple designs that are most eye catching at the minute.  Different styles of wraps/twists/cutouts seem to be the ‘thing’, and that’s good with me!  Really like the simple, bodycon look for going out.

top and skirt: Pretty Little Thing | necklace: Dorothy Perkins (I think, not quite sure!)

Always good when items you order online actually fit too!  I rarely bother with online shopping as I much prefer trying clothes on first, and there’s usually the age old problem of every second item being too short.  I thought a midi skirt would be safely long enough though and this set is just too nice!  I’ve noticed a few of these up and coming online-only stores recently and might have become a little addicted, oops.  Anybody else scroll through endless pages, choosing hypothetical outfits, for no reason whatsoever?  Procrastination at it’s finest I tell you.  Damn you internet for distracting me.  A fair few of these brands I’ve noticed are Manchester based too, which I always like!  Yay for the North ey.

It the first time it’s actually been warmer outside than in over the past couple of days, and of course we can’t help but make a big fuss about it!  Literally been bare arms AND legs weather.  Pretty good going for Easter holidays.  I even have a tiny (and very mild) patch of sunburn on my shoulder already!  I sound far too excited about that haha.  Must wear suncream next time.  I’m not gonna pretend it’s sunbathing weather yet but I’ll sure as hell on a mission to get the best tan possible when (if?) it is. A tan really isn’t the most important thing in the world and is hardly my top priority, but I just feel sooo much better with a subtle glow.  Some folk can pull off the ‘pale and interesting’ thing but I can’t help feeling like I look like death warmed up.  Or just death, not even warmed up, to be honest… Anyway.  Let’s be thankful for tinted moisturiser. 😀

On a scale of 1-10, how crazy am I to have done a short Insanity abs workout at home, had breakfast, jogged to the gym, done 20 minutes back workout in the gym, joined a Metafit class and jogged home again by just after 8am?  Yep, that does sound ridiculous haha.  Strangely it didn’t feel rushed or silly or anything, and I quite enjoyed it!  Just making the most of having ‘proper’ workout time in the mornings before going back to college on Monday.  Not feeling it!  Another month (or 12) off would suit me just fine.

How’s everybody else’s Easter holidays been?

    Haha that work out session sounds pretty impressive! I don’t think I would have it past 40 mins but it seems to have worked out well for you because you look great! I think I also like the matching sets with interesting wraps or cut outs more than the print ones too.

      It was quite the epic workout! All just little stages though so it didn’t feel as disgusting as it probably sounds. Thank youuu!

    […] white everything obsession continues, co-ord obsession continues.  I don’t know why I have such a ‘thing’ for the most boring colour […]
