Never have I ever looked so windswept in my life! You could almost believe the grey background here was a blustery lake, rather than a construction site next to Morrisons car park. ;D
Unfortunately this OOTD turned out as more of a TASOTD (that’s ‘top and shoes of the day’ to anyone wondering), as you can’t really see the shape of the skirt very well, which is a shame seeing as it’s a cute flowy shape. Again, I blame the wind. I knitted this top last summer and today was its first outing of the year; I still really like the shape and fit so I’m hoping to wear it on many more occasions in the coming months. I barely included any ‘features’ other than rib and rows of eyelets along the sides with this one, as the detail is all in the unusual shaping and construction around the neckline and shoulders.
Having a mum who wears similar size shoes definitely has its benefits! This New Look pair are really comfortable and I love how they lace up tightly.
Last weekend a lovely lady that I was chatting to at the bus stop offered me a 2 for 1 cinema voucher that she wasn’t going to use, so yesterday Dan and I made the most of it and went to see The Book Thief. The kindness of some strangers, ey? I won’t spoil it for anybody who hasn’t read/seen the story yet, but I will say it was brilliant, if extremely sad! It totally counted as History revision for me too. 😉
Tonight’s #lbloggers topic is blog/life balance, which will be especially relevant to me at the minute as I’ve had a busy weekend and have a jam-packed week ahead too. My prediction is that planning ahead and organisation will be mentioned many a time! See you there 😀
