When I first started working full time, I went a bit crazy with the shopping. Every month I was spending tons of money on Pretty Little Thing or ASOS, buying loads and loads of clothes and only really wearing a few in my free time. Although that’s not to say I’m going to cut off the shopping (retail therapy is always good!) – I have taken it upon myself to rediscover items that I may have forgotten about, and style them in new ways (probably better than they were stlyed in the past)…
My friend had an all white party just over a year ago, and that is when I went online to buy this little jumpsuit from ASOS (I styled it in a pretty crappy post here). With spring around the corner and denim on a well-deserved come up, I decided to switch things up and go for a ‘lighter’ outfit, contrasted by the khaki sock boots. I originally wanted to buy light grey sock books but when I came to it, everything seemed to be sold out; all I knew is that I absolutely did not want to buy black sock boots, and it will just add to my ever expanding colleciton of black ankle boots. Instead I settled on the khaki which I thought would be hard to style (and it definitely can be at times), but which I loves as it is able to upgrade otherwise plain outfits.

As bright as the photos look here, I actually took these photos on a freezing cold February day where I vowed I would never make myself suffer like that for my blog again. Regardless, I actually really like how these photos turned out! You can’t tell in the slightest that I’m crying inside.
In other news – I turned 22 yesterday! Since I was 15 I’ve always had some sort of fairly-big celebration for my birthday, be it a big dinner (ages 15, 17, 19, 20…), a club night with my friends (age 20 in Mayfair) a big party (age 18 and 21), or on one random year – my parents paid for me and my friends to go and see a theatre show (age 16). For the first time in 7 years I decided to take it easy and just go for a simple dinner with my boyfriend. I have to be honest, I’m never really too bothered about my birthday, I only end up having big celebrations after being peer pressured by friends; although the pressure was still on this year I managed to stick to my guns and keep the celebration small! But I’m sure after a quietter birthday this year, the turn up will have to be back on for my 23rd…
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and showed me some love! I’ll otherwise be back with another chatty post on Thursday along with a really cool announcement. 😉
