Sorbet Shades

It looks like you all enjoyed Ben’s post then!! Can you believe he actually got into the Chictopia Style Gallery, and got more votes and favourites than I’ve ever got on a picture?! All the ‘fame’ has gone to his head so now if I say anything about my blog, it’s all down to his post XD Cheeky little so and so!!
Anyway, this is what I was wearing on the day we did his photos. We actually took a trip into town that day since it was our last chance to be properly in Newcastle together before I finish!! Only 2 and a half weeks to go…17 days and I’ll be done. 3 weeks and we’ll be moved out. After 3 years of me living here, and 6 years of Ben living here. It’s quite sad when you think about it like that!! But we’ve got to leave at some point!!
Top: Matalan (similar here)
Belt: Zara
Shoes: Primark (similar here)
I was sent this skirt by the lovely people at Lavish Alice. Unfortunately it’s a little bit big, it’s a UK size 10, and my waist really needs an 8, so I have a few problems with keeping it in the right place, but I love the sorbet shade of it – there I go with my pastel obsession again!! It is a very different colour to how it appears on the website however, but I still really like it =D
And of course I had to wear pastel pink with it as I do with every mint coloured item I own, so out came the Matalan peplum top!! I am so in love with peplums right now!! I bought another one when shopping on the day I wore this outfit from Internacionale, and in fact I’ve already worn it and got Ben to take pictures of me in it!! All I need now is a peplum skirt, I’ve seen loads that I love on the internet but I think I’d like to try one on before committing to buy it! I am meeting up with a friend on Wednesday for lunch as a final Newcastle lunch meeting and we’re planning to go on a final Newcastle shopping trip then (well, at least to Primark, but I might persuade her to pop into a few other shops with me!! Fran, hope you’re reading this XD). So I’ll be on the lookout for peplums then =D I also want some good shoes for teaching (eek!) and a some nice tops for holiday, only a month until I go to Turkey now.
Right, better get back to the revision – I was pretty pleased I managed to learn 200 lines of Aristophanes’ Frogs in Ancient Greek in the bath today, so maybe another 200 lines this afternoon/evening and I’ll be halfway prepared for my first exam!!

    I love this outfit so much! I’ve been lusting after that mint bandage skirt for a while. I wish you’d told me before you got it because I need an 8 in LA too!
    I love that I have this top in lilac too. We are such twins. Well, that and the fact I totally copied you!
    I finish my degree on Tuesday and I am freaking out so much! It’s gonna be so weird!
