Jumping On The Bandwagon

Just like last week when everyone was dressing up for the Royal Wedding, and I (unintentionally!) got out a long skirt and looked ‘elegant’ like everyone else, today I’ve gone and jumped off that bandwagon again: this time the colour-blocking one! Well, all these lovely ladies all over the blogosphere have been doing it and looking awesome, so I thought why not! I’d been planning this outfit in my head for a while now, and I was surprised it actually worked when I tried it out =)

The tights weren’t included when I was planning it, and even though it is as sunny as ever here (yay!), it is also pretty windy, as it always is in Newcastle. Therefore, I felt a litttttle unsafe going out tightless with that wind, so I compromised and put on some thin ones that didn’t overshadow the outfit too much.


And speaking of colour blocking, I actually pretty much did this colour scheme but backwards yesterday, blue on the bottom, red on top, and…shock…horror! The blue part of my outfit was….jeans!! Not just blue denim jeans, I mean like proper blue, ie. from my collection of bright coloured jeans I owned when I was 15 (red, purple, blue, pink…the list goes on!). I really liked how it worked out though, and I’m going to be pulling out those jeans again soon, I knew I would wear them again at some point!!

Navy Cardigan: Zara
Bag: c/o Matalan
Blue T Shirt: Topshop
Red Skirt: Topshop
Polka Dot Tights: Primark
Silver Flats: Primark

I was playing around earlier with my camera and decided I never do any close ups of my face, and since I’d actually bothered to put make up (and lipstick) on today, I thought I would do some! By the way, my face doesn’t really look this smooth, I discovered Beauty Shot on my camera haha! Ssshhh!

And that’s about it for today! As you can see, I’m back in good old Newc again, back to uni, and still not quite finished with my assignments, so I’m going to be getting on with those now. I spend an hour and a half unpacking and properly organising and cleaning, so I really do need to get on now. Ben said he might take me into town when he’s home from work tonight, but the reason for this is a secret for now which, if I go, I will reveal to you soon (because I will need all of you to help me with it =D). Oh and I’m trying to catch up with comment replies at the moment, so if I’m being very slow, that’s why, but thank you to everyone who’s still bearing with me and commenting, love you all!!

    I love your lipstick :]]
    I think the tights looks great- but I’m jealous of your coloured jeans collection!! I have some red ones I might dig out from my youth!!
