Long Time No See

It seems like long time since I last posted, thing got a bit busy last week and I just seemed to run out of time. I am now feeling organised, in control and ready for more blogging andI hope to get back to visiting all of my favourite blogs that I have been missing out on over the last week.

This weekend I have been to Cardiff for a late anniversairy celebration with Mr Style Eyes. We has a really relaxing time at the Holland House with a Spa break package which I would thoroughly recommend if you are feeling a bit stressed.

We also managed to fit in a little wandering around the shops, unfortunately depsite trying on loads of coats, I am yet to find the one of my dreams, the hunt goes on. I had previously decided to go for the Alia coat at Coast. But when I went to make the most of a 20% discount that was running to order it, I discovered the colour was actually a shade lighter than the one in the lookbook. More a light sand than camel, this colour really doesn't suit me so that was that - how annoying, I have been waiting for it to come into stock for ages!

Here are few of my outfits from the last week.

This was one day when I was around the house, working. Not sure why, but I decided I wanted to look a mess (must be the rebellious streak in me), this outfit was the result.

Dress (I wear it as a top) - Your Eyes Lie
Waistcoat - Dorothy Perkins
Jeans - An old pair which I bleached
Necklace- Dorothy Perkins
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

This was the outfit I wore on Saturday night. We went for a meal in the hotel and then out for a drink in Cardiff. The top and cardigan are both about 10 years old. The skirt is the first new piece of clothing that I have bought for ages. I was really pleased with it as it is so comfy and easy to wear, I know I will wear it loads. I also treated my self to new Chanel Rouge Noir lipstick. I have always wanted it but thought the colour might be too dark for me.

Cropped cardigan - Topshop
Top - Dorothy Perkins
Lace skirt - Next
Shoes - ASOS
Necklace - Christian Dior (a wedding present from Mr Style Eyes)

Love that you dyed your own jeans to get the dye look at home!

Also, looking very sophisticated and sexy in the black outfit.
