Fourteen or "ROAR"

Yep, there was a lion loose in Essex!  Umm... and then there wasn't.  After all the initial hoohah and tales of country ramblers fleeing from a (potentially) man-eating beast, said beast was swiftly downgraded to 'a large cat'.  Not a 'big cat', just a 'large one'.  A tubby tabby perhaps?  Either way, the police aren't looking for it anymore.

So what has all this got to do with my clothes, then eh?  Nothing, to be perfectly honest!  My own little not-so-fat cat went for an extended holiday to my boyfriend's parents to be kindly looked after whilst we went Up North (well, to the Midlands) to visit my own parents for the bank holiday weekend.  My boyfriend is from London and therefore thinks anywhere north of Watford is a totally different world.  So we went to bingo!  And saw a pub covers band!  And the pièce de résistance, we went to a monkey forest!  Actual real monkeys, not pretend ones, roaming about in the Staffordshire countryside.  Take that, Essex Lion!

Here's a selection of my outfits over the weekend, each featuring some Topshop Petite stretchy Leigh jeans. They're the perfect length and fit for moi so I wear them to death.

Apologies for the washed out colour, but you get the idea, surely.
 Burnout T-shirt: Topshop (Size 8)
Vest (underneath): H&M (Size 8)
Owl Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Bordeaux Leigh Jeans: Topshop Petite (Size 10)
Plimsolls: Primark (Size 5)

And how about a closeup of my freshly done nails?  Aiight.  This is Aqua Cool by Rimmel PRO:

More like a Wedgwood blue in real life.  Wedgwood is also in Staffordshire, fact fans.
Anyone who has been out on the town anywhere in England which isn't London, will know that the majority of girls get absolutely dressed up to the nines - just watch any episode of TOWIE or Geordie Shore to get the idea.  I refuse to adhere to these conventions and so for a Saturday night out in Stafford channelled Camden as opposed to Colchester.  Check me out with not a short skirt, high heel or fake eyelash in sight:

I was only going to a Wetherspoons after all.
The Doors T-shirt: River Island (Size 8)
Acid Wash Leigh Jeans: Topshop (Size 10)
Plimsolls: Primark (Size 5)

In tribute to the forest visit, I wore my Topshop monkey necklace pretty much all weekend. If you want a good look at it, check out Post Four ...  In the meantime, here's one of the real monkeys.  So awesome.

Hey hey, it's a monkey!

There ARE monkeys in the distance there, honest.
