Shake a leg

Yesterday I had a fantastic day out in London strolling around Primrose Hill! Despite the wet and cold weather I had a lot of fun, especially since I got to wear my new cape, tights and skirt.

Cape, socks and Pocahontas shoes from Topshop
Tee from Asish x Topshop
Skirt from Dunnes Stores
Tights from Bebaroque (via ASOS)

I have been lusting after this camel cape for what seems like months now but I refused to pay the £95 Topshop were asking for. Instead I managed to find it on eBay for a lot cheaper and it's just perfect. The colour is so now, as is the cape shape and military style plus it makes me feel like pulling crazy shapes. Cape are awesome, there are no 2 ways about it!

I love Bebaroque tights but they're rather expensive so I was pretty thrilled to discover that this pair were in the sale (still available)! I have a habit of laddering expensive tights so I'm doing my best to be extra careful with these beauties. They are really comfortable and so far none of the little jewels have fallen off. I think I'm going to wear them with EVERYTHING because the colourful jewels really do brighten up an outfit.

Recently I've been having a bit of a style crisis and have had the feeling I've lost my own personal touch. I think this outfit is very me and one of my favourites I've worn recently. The quirky tights, fun coat and mismatching top and bottoms are very me so I think I must becoming myself again. This probably has something to do with losing a little weight which is making me very happy at the moment. I lost 2 pounds this week which is a total of 8 since the new year =)

Can't wait till pay day x

  4. Those tights are so unusual; I've never seen anything like them before! The cape is lovely and it's so good that you managed to find it on eBay. Topshop is far too expensive. Congrats on the weight loss :) x
