Thirty or "Trooping Home"

This past weekend I headed up north to my home town and left the London flat (and the cat) in the care of Matt. Such a trip, especially at this time of year, usually calls for maximum warmth in the form of plentiful jumpers and coats, so I layered myself up and off I went. Cue unseasonably mild weather shocker that I was totally unprepared for, yet welcomed profusely.

By Saturday I had already exhausted Stafford's limited fashion outlets, so my mum and I took ourselves off to the Birmingham Bullring, otherwise know as the Midlands mecca for merchandise... that's my name for it, anyway. I took the opportunity to wear a new Topshop purchase, a black sleeveless tunic-type top which is shorter at the front and longer at the back... a mullet top??* The weather was mild, but hardly tropical, so I layered this up with my still-favourite camouflage shirt.


*A quick bit of research has taught me that this style is in fact termed a 'step back hem tank'. I think a mullet top sounds much more catchy.


Not the most flattering of poses, but you get the idea with the back hem length


You can't quite see it in the photos above, but I was wearing another new Topshop find, a fantastic rose-gold coloured spiked bracelet. I completely failed to get an outdoor shot of this, so have recreated that day's armourage back in London. 

Mango wasn't interested as there was no food involved

My mum took these photos, she's even shorter than me

Shirt, Socks & Necklace: Primark
Mullet Top, Leggings, Ring & Bracelet: Topshop
Boots: Runway Shoes
Nails: Scarlet Red by SensatioNail (courtesy of my lovely friend Jo)


By the way, can anybody help me with my latest clothing quest? I'm after a fluffy slouchy black cardigan. It must be VERY fluffy... where oh where can I find such a thing?

P.S. I've been playing around with the design and layout of my blog recently and have added some new features. See that Google Friend Connect button towards the top on the right... just give it a little click... go on, it won't hurt.
