Summer Outfit #1


outfit 1

tee: Topshop. £18.00
headband, Topshop. £15.00
ring, Miss Selfridge. £12.50
shorts, Urban Outfitters. £30.00
sandals, River Island. £39.99

So i have no camera which is really depressing, so i thought for a while i'd try this new feature on my blog, showing different outfits, we'll see how this goes for a while, but i need something to blog about, and as i don't have the monies to purchase all these pretty items, i'm creating outfits instead. So behold, a summer outfit, perfect for a summer day shopping in town, or chilling by the beach. This is definately an outfit i'd like. This cross tee would look nice tucked in nicely to the shorts loosely, so that it drapes over the front of the shorts showing the cross logo. The headband would give such a 'hippy' look to this outfit, so ethreal and summery. The sandals add a bit of needed colour and fun to this outfit. I think fun sandals like these can be so cute, a nice change oposed to plain coloured ones. Jewellery wise i've settled for a chunky sand stone ring, due to the colour and effect of the sandles i thought any other jewellery would just look tacky.


Anyways, tonight i'm off to the cinema with Sam to see the Hangover 2, it's meant to be really good and funny, i could do with a good laugh, so should be just what i need. Then tonight my friend Abby is staying over aswell as Sam. So we're going to get a few drinks, watch a movie or two and eat some form of takeaway.. loverly.. but hopefully it'll cheer her up, hate seeing good friends upset! Also, thankyou to everyone who suggested names for the new addition to my family, being the little kitten we got my dad for his birthday... i can reveal that he has infact been called JACK! He's such a holy terror, but it suits him perfectly!

It's definately about who you know, not what you know. Silly, but it's true. This is me and my good friend Chloe, honestly one of the nicest girls i think i've ever met! She's a model and works at Abercrombie & Fitch, so has all the connections to photographers and events in London. (Yes, majorly jealous, she has the life i want!) But, she kindly took me along to a Full Moon Party at Aura Mayfair. Free Entry, Free Food, Free Drinks and we were VIP, was absollutely amazing! The flashing lights, the neon colours, was just wicked, loved every second of it.

There was only one problem with this whole evening, and that was that instead of waiting for the 6am train home back to Potters Bar, we were both in St Thomas's Hospital in London, Waterloo. Stupidly and naively we both acceted a drink off some men, and i collapsed outside, hurting my leg in the process. We were taken to hospital, where the nurses clarrified, that yes both our drinks had been spiked. I was admitted on to a ward and was told that i may of needed an operation, they told me that i'd broken my leg. The plate in my leg is holiding the bones together while the new bone growth is growing, and i've got an obvious fracture through the bone growth. They can't put me in plaster because the first break was due to an operation, so i'm toe-touch weight bearing with crutches. Told you i had the worst luck, was the last thing i needed!

dress + tights: Topshop
jumper: New Look

Gone for a bit of a school girl look here i suppose, i was wearing this scalloped collared dress with a cardigan, but i thought it was time to upgrade to a jumper when my lips turned blue haha! I'd never usually go for something like this, but it felt good to try something different, not gonna lie though, did make me feel all young again haha.

Such an emotional and mentally draining day today, so much to take in! I'm not going in to much detail about what the nurse said because it's not something i particularly want to talk about, but on the plus side, i got my anti depressant dosage upped to double, and i'm hoping that it'll start to change how low i'm feeling, keep your fingers crossed for me!

shorts: H&M
snood + tights: Tesco
sunglasses: Mum's

A top that was right at the back of my wardrobe, had totally forgotten about this! I bought it last year in the sale and ended up getting it for £10. It sits a bit low for my liking and buttons down a little bit, i'm not really one who likes to show skin, i prefer to cover up, so i've worn this cobweb snood over it. I was freezing today, so the snood fitted in perfectly, my hands acrtually got a small blue tinge to them at one point!! I decided that despite the cold weather, this outfit would probably look quite good with sunglasses, and my eyes are so sensitive to bright light recently, so as crazy as i probably looked wearing sunglasses, i don't care, they worked haha. Jewellery wise i'm only wearing rings, and my nail varnish is Barry M.


I just don't know what to say about anything at the moment, but oh my, i must say i'm so so so happy! My physio has said that i can join the gym which means Operation Summer Body is a go! Woooo! Aslong as i don't overdo it, and literally try to run before i can walk all will be good. Cannot express my excitement about that, i love exercise so much, it's just a way for me to destress myself, i suppose everyones different in that aspect. But for me, destressing comes hand in hand with exercise, so not being able to do any for nearlly 7 months, yeah you can see why i've been going off on crazy moaning posts! I've actually had a good day, and i'm in a good mood, (i say this so rarely so it had to be blogged about) I'm going to my football coaches house in a bit for a meeting about next season too, so will be nice to see all the girls!

blouse + shorts + tights: Topshop

I haven't worn this blouse since Christmas day! To think that was nearly 5 months ago is crazy! I don't know if it's since it's been washed or what but i'm really not as big a fan of this blouse as i was before, the shape just doesn't sit as nicely when it's not tucked in, and i've found that it's too baggy when tucked into these shorts. But ohwell, i like this outfit, very me. I like the simple colours, but the peterpan collar and the polka dots give the outfit that edgyness that is needed. I never wear my hair like this, but thought i'd try something new, wearing it in a side ponytail, would look a lot better when my hair is the length that i want, which is past my breasts. But spose' this will have to do for now :)




I cancelled my blood test today, really wasn't feeling up to being pricked & prodded with needles. Instead, i cleaned my whole downstairs, well i dusted everywhere, did the washing up, put it away and tidyed up other bits & bobs. I would of hoovered but it really scares me, hate the loud noise, so yeah, left that to the parents haha! Also, got my letter through about upping the dosage of my anti-depressants, they must of totally agreed with me because i got my appointment on Thursday afternoon, quite glad it's come through so quickly to be honest, i'm such an emotional wreck, really need to control my emotions and not uncontrollably bursting into tears at every possible moment!

Try something new

shirt + skirt: Topshop
socks + heels: River Island

Differnet location for photos that were taken last night. My brother had a football presentation party, so thought i'd embrace the oppurtunity to attempt to make myself feel pretty and dress up. I also took this oppurtunity to drown my sorrows in alcohol, but anyways. I tried to brave away from black tights here, yes, i'm wearing black knee high socks, but for once i'm actually showing a bit of leg flesh, first time in a long long time. Not going to lie, i don't feel majorly comfortable and was wary of it majority of the night, but after a couple drinks in me, i soon forgot about it. I love this skirt, i have it in a coral colour as well, and it's just perfect, floaty, yet fitted at the waist. I'm wearing a tucked in black short sleeved shirt, it's a little to big, i probably should of got it in a size smaller, but i like it. It's got an open collar, and has that classy look about it, along with the essence of sexyness.





I've got quite a lot on this week, which i'm really not looking forward too. I have a bloodtest tomorrow, physio Tuesday, watching my brother play football on Wednesday, got a nurse coming to my house on Thursday to do a full check on all my health. It's just such a hassle, i'd love to have a week where i don't have a single appointment, and nothing to worry about, but ohwell, can't really change it. My therapist wants me to do an activity diary of things i do in the week and to make sure i schedule some things i actually enjoy it, and some things that get me out the house prefrably too. Going to try an incorporate a few new things into my lifestyle too, any ideas of things i could try?

playsuit: River Island
tights: Topshop

I caved and bought my firrst little playsuit, only problem? Fits perfectly on the bottom but is HUGE on top and i've put the straps as tights as they'd go. I decided to let them just drape down instead, it looked better that way instead of it looking stupidly huge on me. You can see how ridiculous it looks in the second photo when i've tried to wear it how it should be worn. On the plus side, I like the navy colour of it and the white dots give it such an edgy look, yet still cute. Think i'm make sure i actually buy a playsuit that fits correctly next time haha!



Couldn't think of a name for this post, hence why the title is the date aha. Got some positive news kind of today at family therapy, i spoke to them about my anti-depressants and they agree with me that they aren't working and that the dosage definately needs to be higher. I'm quite glad i got an answer and wasn't just brushed off, it means the dosage can be changed and i can hope to improve. Spoke to them about quite a lot actually and it was so nice to get some stuff of my chest, i'm so teary and emotional so letting it out instead of bottling it up is always good. I'd always advise people to express how they feel instead of bottling it up, i know from experience that it does more harm than good.

top, skirts, tights: Topshop

I swear, nearlly everything i wear is from Topshop! I really need to shop in other places don't i? Both these items have been newly recent purchases, a bit of retail therapy was just what i was needing! Quite a country inspired theme for this outfit, if only i had a straw sun hat, and a pair of big sunglasses, i think it'd bring the look together. I think the countryside is so beautiful and i plan to spend a lot of my time embracing nature and it's surroundings this summer, it's just fascinating. Apologies for these photos, the quality of my camera is appalling for these shots, i probably need to give the lense a good clean, my bad guys. My parents have done my front garden up a bit, using my nans old bench and some pretty flowers, so i thought i'd use this location in my shots now too... what do you think?




I don't particularly like my hair, although i must admit it is an absolute saviour when it comes to hiding this huge nasty bump i recieved on my head yesterday. I went to the doctors earlier just to get it checked and she says i have mild concussion and to just have bed rest for the next couple days. I would if i didn't have family therapy tomorrow, and then therapy on Friday. Ohwell i suppose. Wish therapy worked for me to be honest, but no, i still despise myself just as much as when i started it back in 2008. Fun.
