First things first: I want to start this post with a big, BIG gushy ‘thank you’ to the girls over on Twitter who’ve cheered me up no end this weekend with their X Factor commentary and well wishes as always. I have no idea why I’ve been in such a rubbish mood. It’s probably just Uni stress-induced to be honest, I’m such an over-worrier! I missed my girls lots too, as they were all back home for the weekend, while I stayed in our apartment due to lack of funds. Trying to stay positive now though! Once my driving is done and dusted, I won’t be spending all of my moolah on lessons any more. Right now, I’m penning this post as I watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, in avid preparation for Friday. A quick shoutout to Bee at Vivatramp, who is totally doing the same 😉
Leopard print top, Topshop;
Bodycon skirt, H&M;
Black ribbed tights, Primark;
Heels, River Island;
Onto the look! This outfit is a bit of a spin on what I usually share on here. I’ve been considering new ways of bringing fresh content to Daisybutter, so here’s an evening look for you instead. We’re headed out tonight for a surprise birthday meal to celebrate my flatmate Rebecca’s 21st birthday. I decided on my caramel-coloured dress from H&M with a bonus leopard print top underneath to inject some subtle pattern. I’ll pair it with some black heels and a Primark clutch just before I head out.
I tried something a little different with my hair today.
I’ve been in such a slump with my hair recently, it desperately needs a trim and a little TLC! The wind here in Southampton batters my hair beyond belief, and much as I know a hat of some sort would benefit me, I don’t think hats suit me at all. I woke up with my hair slightly wavy this morning, so I decided to French-plait my hair along the back nape of my head and secured it with a huge leopard print clip, leaving the rest of my hair to hang naturally.
Finally, I just wanted to quickly let you know that I might not be sharing a new post tomorrow, as I’m going to see Ellie Goulding live! I’m so excited, I really adore going to smaller, more intimate gigs and nothing beats a bit of acoustic. I bought the ticket with my friend Tasha, as a present to myself after completing my Eyeko internship, so I’m excited to finally be going! Hoping to get some sneaky snaps and a video if possible.
