I've finally finished uni for Christmas, so hopefully I'll have a bit more time for blogging. This term has been really difficult, especially when I've had my kitten distracting me! My flatmate and I decided to go to Birmingham as a little goodbye trip before we went home for the holidays and I finally got to go to Forever21! I spent far too much of my birthday money on a few things you'll no doubt be seeing on here soon. I know this is dead boring but I was so surprised by the customer service too! I was struggling to reach something and a really nice lady came over and helped me, and she continued to help and ask if I needed anything the whole time I was in the store - which was ages! I find that good customer service in high street shops a rarity, which is always really off putting when you want to spend your hard earned cash and there's a miserable cow being bitchy, but this girl really put so much effort into being dead lovely and I really appreciated it. I even rang up and told the manager how good she was! I swear I'm actually meant to be middle aged.

Can you believe it - I'm wearing a colour that isn't a berry tone! I love cobalt blue! It's one of those shades that I think suits every skin tone, and it fits perfectly into my predominantly black wardrobe. I find it dead difficult choosing blazers because the fit has to be just right, and I love this fitted but at the same time loosely cut style - does that even make sense?

I love this t-shirt too, it has a picture of Morrissey getting his hair cut on it - my boyfriend goes mad because I keep stealing it! I got these creepers ages ago in the Miss Selfridge sale for about £20 I think. I haven't worn them much because I thought they made my feet look dead big, but I really like them with this outfit. They're really comfy too, so maybe they'll get a few more outings in the future!

If I don't blog before Christmas, have a lovely day! We're going out for our Christmas dinner again this year which I love, we get all dressed up and don't have to worry about washing up! I hope they do Champagne sorbet like last year - it's so good! I'm getting so fat this winter, but I keep saying it's because I need the extra insulation...!

- I had aimed to get 500 blog followers by Christmas day...that isn't happening! Maybe I'll extend it to New Year just in time for my blogiversary! Though that's still ambitious!

  7. OOoh that outfit is gorgeous! Love the spike necklace too. Never been in to a Forever 21 shop before but my gosh I know high street customer service is awful. Republic was the worst the other day. Was so angry.

  12. Hahahaha, love the "miserable cows being bitchy" comment & the entire honestly of this post. It is true how customer service has little meaning in the retail sector now.
    Anyways! You look incredible. The blue blazer is to die for & your style is crazy refreshing. Loves it.

  36. ha -- i was in the same dilemma! ever since i've come home from college i've had a lot more time for blogging!
    i love the outfit, by the way! i can't believe you don't have to bundle up, where you are. in minnesota, there's no way i'd ever step out of the house in tights this time of year!

    lovely blog, by the way :)
