a spring in my step





Linen shirt - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Cardigan - Topshop (sale!)
Bangles - Accessorize

Ever so slowly I do believe we are edging our way into Spring.
We were blessed with a few glorious days this week, hitting the balmy highs of 14 degrees, catapulting the country into chaos, and bringing the unnerving sight of bare legs and flip flops! I certainly am not ditching my tights or leggings any time soon, but I did adopt a rather more Spring-like attire yesterday at work. 
The skirt was only £7.99 and the H&M staff were only just wheeling them out of the stockroom when I clapped my eyes on their beauty; you know I love my high-waisted apparel. They have the same style in literally 5 or 6 different prints, the dark blue paisley is next on my list. The linen shirt is pretty self-explanatory, everyone needs a linen shirt in their wardrobe. The cardigan was probably my most heroic find, battling through the elbows and cascade of clothing at the Topshop sale, bagging myself the final one in my size!

Today is my last day as a 24 year old, merely a few hours away from entering that rather daunting 25-30 box. I had a wonderful meal out last night with my beautiful friend Claire to celebrate. Tonight I shall be enjoying some time with my family and boyfriend, warmed by the log fire and fuelled with some good food and a glass or two of Champagne. Tomorrow, on the big day, Rob is treating me to a day out in London, the morning spent frequenting the numerous markets about town, and then onto an afternoon of shopping and dinner. I am really looking forward to it all. :)

I love that skirt so much, and you look gorgeous in your pictures.
Every post of yours that goes by tempts me more and more to dye my hair red. I'll resist until after our wedding day though.
Happy Birthday for tomorrow by the way, I hope you have a fantastic day and get all you wish for. Sounds like the inside of a greetings card. haha.
I know some people will hate me for saying this, but I turn 23 this year, and I'm dreading it. At least it will mean pressies!
