the living is easy

Top: H&M, Dress as skirt & Sandals: UO

Shall I rave on about the awesomeness of the weather today? Nah.
First time this year I've had bare legs and sandals and it felt amazing. I've had two ice-creams in the last six hours and loved it.
This dress was a present from my boyfriend and whilst I love the girliness and fun the colour is pretty much my skin tone which rules out wearing it as a dress - sadface. But the skirt, skirt works.

Jacket: £3 Shop, T-shirt: H&M, Trews: Zara, Trainers: Fei Yue

Mao! That's cat in Chinese, it's not all just me looking aggressive over here, although there is a lot of that going on today, no there's learning too.
£3 Shop, £1 Jacket.
Today has been spent book binding and card marking. My first foray into paperback binding a book and it's fairly easy, I wrote a childrens book for my boyfriends niece's first birthday and it's looking pretty cool. Exciting times.

So in right now.

Cardi: GAP, Shirt: £3 shop, Jeans: Zara

Anyone who lives in Manchester unless they do so with their head in a hole (ITV3 have an adaptation of 'Emma' on the TV as I write, therefore the voice in my head has become somewhat Austenien - thank your stars it's not The Wire or this post would be far more offensive), knows about the £3 vintage shop at the end of Oldham Street. Whilst many of the shops around there have become pricey and occasionally a bit boring the £3 shop is full of crap, which makes finding the occasional gem for £3 or less that much more satisfying. Like this shirt, it's big in a gawky way which I like and the pattern is very 'now' - quite exciting for me.

This outfit turned out to be a nightmare, absolute and wholeheartedly awful. Tights + slip + skirt made apparently out of plastic = static nightmare. I made it out of the house but only as far as the toilets in the Arndale shopping centre where I desperately clawed at my static filled lower half with no avail and had to scurry back home looking like I was wearing some pink polka dot harem pants. And to think I left the house feeling so chic and ladylike.

Jumper: Huk, T-shirt: H&M, Trousers: Zara, Boots: TK Maxx

And life resumes! Finished exams and everything and now I have to whole summer stretching out in front of me, full of...nothing. I have classic post-exams, 'what do I do with my life?' confusion. Apparently I watch a lot of glee and tidy the flat, which isn't very satisfactory so I'll be working on something, probably involving eBay and Chinese bulk manufacturers.

Either way, this top was the other 'classics' buy except each stripe is made up of a little blue tinted cityscape, so there's probably nothing'classic' about it. Oh well.

Hope everyone's enjoying the mental four seasons in an hour weather.
