'Cos I'm Mr. Brightside

Top: Topshop
Shorts: Peacocks
Shoes: New Look
Bag: Dorothy Perkins

I wore this out on Friday night with a couple of my besties. This studded top from Toppers is my fave but I'm always scared of ripping the studs off. As always, it was a great night!

I've had the most full on but lovely weekend. Saturday me and the boyfriend chilled in the garden and went out for an Indian on the night. Today it was still super warm and sunny so we went to Bewdly for chips and sweets by the river. Then we caught up with some of his mates at a bbq. Such a calorie filled weekend - oops!

I hope this weather stays till next weekend, being cooped up in an office all week is pants in the summer! Hope you've all enjoyed the sunshine!

Daisy Dukes, Bikini's on top: Shorts Haul!

Now I've booked my summer holiday & festivals I've started shopping and discovered a new obsession - I love shorts! I posted a while ago about my amazing aztec print shorts and now I've brought some more!

First I snapped up these mint green & white striped shorts from New Look. They're a bit shorter than I'd normally wear but I'm hoping by the time I'm on holiday/at a festival I won't care! These were £20.

 As soon as I saw these on I HAD to have them. The Topshop version were out of my price range but these were really affordable. I'm fully in love with them. These are the Coralyn shorts and you can shop them here and here.

I had no intention of buying any more shorts but when MissGuided ran a Twitter competition to win these Merill shorts I entered on my lunch break and thought nothing more of it. You had to tweet you fave colour out of the three and where you'd wear them. I got home from work to a tweet saying I'd won! 

These are high waisted and super flattering, the length is perfect for my chunky legs too! Can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can dig my shorts out! You can get these shorts here.

What do you think of these shorts? What have you been buying recently?

I Fight Like Me Dad As Well

I went out on Saturday night with my cousins and friend Jess, and in honour of St Patrick's Day we danced to B*Witched! (Hence the title!) I wore my fave skirt from H&M, trusty wedges and my new MissGuided top - I could honestly buy EVERYTHING from MG right now:

Excuse my face, I'd had far too many Vodka Cherryade's and Jagerbombs by this point!
 Here are my beautiful girlie's in all their finery too:
 The rest of my weekend was spent getting last minute Mothers Day pressies with my boyfriend, and recovering from Saturday night's festivities at home with the family. Hope everyone had a good weekend! <3

NOTD: Pastel Frenchie

Please excuse the state of my nails, I was in a rush!
I saw an image on Pintrest of this nail art and fell in love! Its really subtle but I love it. My base colour is Models Own 'Nudest Beige' with Barry M's 'Lemon Ice Cream', 'Flamingo Pink', 'Bluberry Ice Cream' and 'Mint Green'. The purple is a Beauty UK colour that I think its just called Lilac.
What do you think? 

P.S: I'm sorry for being a rubbish blogger of late, I don't really have much to post about as I'm not sure anyone cares about my OOTD's and it's hard to blog when you work 9-5! What do you want to see blog posts about?

Mini Primark Haul - Reading and V Festival Preparation!!

I know I've been harping on about going to Reading Festival FOR AGES but me and the girls decided to go and get a few essentials (a tent and clothes!) over the weekend. We headed to good ole Primark for some cheap-as-chips goodies and this is what I brought:

First off was this distressed look, stars and stripes racer back vest (£3). I love the worn look of this vest and it'll be perfect for the (hopefully) sunny August bank holiday. And at £3 if it gets ruined there it's no great loss!

Secondly I brought this mens checked shirt (£3/4) to pull on in the evenings or when we're sat around the tent. It won't be hugely warm but it's pretty much a festival must-have! I also plan to steal a few of my boyfriends shirts and hoodys for sleeping in!

I also brought a tiny cross body bag so I can store my camera and a few bits in when we're down at the stage. The stone colour is really pretty and will be ideal for nights out post-festival (if it doesn't get ruined). 

And now for some none-festival related buys:

This mock McQueen was only £3 and I already have the black-with-white-skulls version so couldn't resist. Primark had these in loads of colours so I might go back for another. Great lightweight spring scarf and could double as a hair band to hide greasy festival hair?

Finally I brought these GORGEOUS colour block wedges (£16). They're so bright and vibrant I just couldn't help myself. Can't wait to wear them with a dark outfit or skinny jeans and a vest at the pub. Bring on the beer gardens!

What have you been buying this week?
