To borrow a phrase from the “youth” I hear around me, H&M’s sweater game is strong this season! I bought the feminism one as a birthday present to myself, and the other 2 were birthday presents from a friend. I love them all 😀

I also really love this one:

MTV and burgers were basically my life at one point.

(Ok, burgers still are.)

And this one’s pretty cute too:

I especially love the pizza.

(When burgers are busy, pizza is my life instead.)

Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!

OOTD T-shirts

Just two recent outfits…

I wore my new pink M&S top with M&S treggings and sparkly Converse to see Dave Chappelle at the Hammersmith Apollo last week. We were way further forward than I thought we’d be and I have never been so grateful for a lack of audience participation in my life! I think I am going to make an effort to sit near the back at comedy shows in the future… It didn’t help that my sister was wearing an even brighter top (it was neon and actually glowed under the lights) – we have never felt so vulnerable! Having said that, our cheeks hurt for hours afterwards so definitely a good show!

The top is super flowy and comfortable and has a funky pleated back, which adds interest and makes it just smart enough for work:

M&S

I’m not sure how flattering it actually is- I’m worried that it creates a slight hump-back/maternity effect- but I think that’s mostly just in photos, it’s fine in motion. And I couldn’t resist the colour!

Necklace: Sublime; ring from Monastiraki last year; bracelets are various ones ones I have accumulated over the years, I think the grey circle one is by Elle Amber.

The top kind of speaks for itself… how could I not buy it?! Anything that combines Disney with Beyoncé is alright by me! I am obsessed with Primark t-shirts actually, they are pretty much all I buy these days- I love the captions, the material and the shape. Although I can’t wait for them to get over their “half rolled up sleeves” phase.

I wore this outfit to go for dinner yesterday. The skirt is Primark, and the trainers are New Balance (410 Sonic) from Asos.

If you had told me even a year ago that I would be wearing trainers to dinner, I would have laughed in your face. (Admittedly, we only went to the local kebab place, I wouldn’t have worn them had we been going anywhere nicer.) But as I get older, I am rapidly losing tolerance for anything less than super-comfiness (another thing I never believed I’d say until recently) and so I bought these with a view to mostly just wearing them to and from work. However, what with seeing so many people (primarily bloggers) making trainers into a ‘look’, I have been venturing out in them more and more. It took me ages to find ones that I liked, as I wanted really clean, uncluttered ones that didn’t make my feet look enormous (I have realised that whenever I think a woman looks nice in trainers, it is almost always because her feet are tiny and dainty- aka my life dream) but I am really happy with these ones.

Still not as cool as my sparkly Converse though!

The best thing about Primark is that it’s so cheap you can always justify a wild card (or two :-p)…

Hence this look.

I thought this was a dress at first, but was really pleased when I discovered that it was actually a weird apron top thing, with slits up the side. It actually makes it much easier to wear!

I was concerned that it might be a bit too young for me, but decided that life’s too short to worry about this crap…. and anyway, I could always blame it on the hip hop.

I wore it with M&S treggings, M&S shoes, old hoop earrings that I used to wear every day as a teenager, and a necklace that my Dad gave me. I also carried my new H&M fringed backpack (that’s pretty similar to the Topshop one I was lusting over a while back!) that one of my sisters bought me. (Yes, I have awesome family members) 🙂

My old-enough-to-vote black leather Warehouse jacket made its first appearance of the year, and I was ready for a wild, crazy night out, as befitting a hip-hop fuelled yoof! (AKA I went for fondue with some friends and was in bed by 11.) 😀
