But I came to love you anyway




shirt: Ark, blazer: Topshop, jeans: Topshop, Converse: Schuh

I bought this shirt before Christmas and its become a firm favourite (especially because I can wear it under dresses and jumpers with the collar poking out- always a winner for me!). Also think I've fallen in love with my new Converse. My trusty old black pair are getting a bit too holey and dilapidated to be deemed acceptable footwear now so I decided to put my Christmas money to good use and buy myself these little beauties. In burgundy. Obviously having a wardrobe almost entirely based around the colour wasn't quite enough for me and a bit of oxblood just had to seep into my shoe collection too to keep me happy.

After weeks of avoiding anybody with the slightest sniffle so I didn't have to spend my Christmas holidays in bed with the lurgy, its finally caught me so I've mostly spent the weekend so far slobbing around the flat in my pyjamas and eating unholy amounts of Christmas chocolate. I definitely would have been spending the weekend in exactly the same way even if I was feeling fine but at least I have an excuse now so can't complain too much! 

Hope you're all having an exciting and less snot-filled weekend than me!

  2. Gotta love a good pair of converse! I only have the one [bottle green] pair now, but used to have 5/6 pairs. Love your burgandy ones! Such a 'you' colour ;)
    Hope you feel better soon. On the plus side, a good excuse to treat yourself to lots of choc to make yourself feel better! xx
