Gingham Trousers: Matalan*
So i'm a few days late for my usual outfit post. I've actually been wanting to post this for a couple of weeks but i've had to wait as this outfit is actually for a competition. Last month I was asked if I’d like to take part in this months Matalan style comp which was to style an outfit based on the theme 'girlie' which they describe as cute cuts and sugary sweet colours with a bit of 50s Americana mixed in, this was the outfit I came up with. I absolutely love Matalan and their fashionable and affordable pieces so I was really excited to take part! I actually really like my outfit and I feel like I’ve stepped out of my usual comfort zone for it which is always a bonus! I think this outfit will become a summer favourite. If you like my outfit please comment here, thank you. The other two ladies in the comp have styled some fab pieces too so check them out!
It feels like I haven't posted an update in forever. But i'm still here and doing the same old. I went home this weekend just gone for my Dads birthday which was so nice, I made him his own chocolate Glossybox and had some cupcakes made (pics on my instagram vipxo). It always makes me sad to leave but hopefully we'll be down again for the bank holiday weekend!
How glorious is this weather we're having? I've been really lucky enough to enjoy some time out in it and I think i've actually caught it on my face if my freckles are anything to go by. I'm going down to London tomorrow for the day which i'm super excited about, I haven't been down since February (I think) so it's been long over due. I'm going to be popping along to the Next A/W preview which i'm sure will be lovely! I'm having an absolute nightmare with what to wear as I have to wear something suitable for the hottest day of the year, but also suitable for the 5 hours i'll be travelling. So yes, having a bit of a self loathing moment. But anyways, will I be seeing any of you there?
A couple of things i'm looking forward too... starting my new job in June, road tripping down to London to see the new Prometheus film and for October to hurry up so I can watch the new series of The Walking Dead which i'm actually obsessed with having watched the first two series in a week.
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine!
