You're talking 45 turns just as fast as you can

I'm not one for needing a reason to go shopping. I can pretty much justify spending £30 on a pair of shoes to congratulate myself for washing my hair. But some occasions demand a proper a proper 'treat' purchase. Having found out I'm not going to be unemployed on Tuesday (hurrah!) I decided to splash out on something SHINY.


Berkeley bag - Stylist Pick
White T-shirt - Topshop
Grey jersey maxi - River Island
Sandals - c/o Spartoo


This rucksack has been on my wishlist for MONTHS, and when it went on sale last week it was a snap decision. I love that rucksacks are bang on trend at the moment - I carry my life around in my leather one! And yes yes I know I'm wearing sandals with tights, but it's chilly, and my toes needed cradling.

When I look back on these outfit snaps I realise just how tired I look! My drive to and from work takes an hour each way, so needless to say when I get home, it's nice to veg out with my doggy and not have to job hunt every more. Must get more sleep though... zzzzzz

  1. Such a cute bag, I find I'm the same, I shop a lot of sale items just because but when I get something really worth celebrating I splurge.

  22. Gorgeous skirt :) and yes you definitely need to treat yourself for all little achievements in life (I'm fairly sure even getting up in the morning sometimes deserves a reward!).
    Thanks for the comment on my blog... I'm so tempted to get black keys tickets for October- saw them play Leeds festival at the weekend and they completely blew me away. Amazing! You definitely need to try to get tickets :)
