I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted last! Absolutely disgraceful, I know... But to be fair, I was chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool in Florida. I had an amazing time as you could probably tell from my last two posts so I won't bore you with too many more details; just a few outfits...

This skirt was about £30 from vintage department store Blitz on Brick Lane in London- though the price was a bit much for an item of second hand clothing, I couldn't resist the print! It's so summery and looks great with my black cropped tee (£8 Topshop). 

As I mentioned, I'm now home and on a complete post-holiday come-down. Nothing compares to Orlando- the sun, the shopping, the constant supply of things to keep you entertained... It's awesome to be back with my friends though- I've managed to keep myself busy each day since I've been home which is helping me to stop feeling too sorry for myself! Of course, I've managed to fit in some shopping too- Urban Outfitters shopping to be exact. I've been looking to get some new jeans that fit well for a while and seeing as I returned home to a freshly topped up bank account, I felt as though today was a good opportunity to satisfy my need. I always have good experiences with denim shopping in Urban Outfitters. Although it tends to be a little more pricey than Topshop (jeans averaging at £45 rather than £38-£40) I'm completely behind the fact that you get what you pay for- a pair of great fitting trousers. My favourite brand for jeans has been BDG for a while now so they were the first that I checked out. I found the perfect colour (a bright/dark indigo if that's possible!) so headed straight to the fitting room only to be greeted by the fact that I needed a smaller size... Turns out that the binging in FL had been counteracted by all the walking! To cut a long story short, I bought  the jeans as well as a pale denim shirt (long sleeved) to wear with them. I got the idea from an outfit I saw Alexa Chung wearing which featured in one of my previous posts. I'll be wearing the outfit tomorrow so I'll take some snaps and have them ready ASAP!

I'm afraid that's all for now folks- hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things soon! I'm sure now that I'm home with things to do and people to see I'll start thinking about my outfits a lot more again- it's a bit of a no brainer in the heat in Orlando!
