Popped to the Bullring today just to get out the house and have abit of a wander, also majorly wanted to raid the jewellery section in Forever 21 as everyone keeps going on about it. Got to admit, it is the largest selection of jewellery I have ever come across, almost slightly too overwhelming and didn't really know where to look first. Ended up buying two cross necklaces, one encrusted with turquoise stones and one plain silver one as I'm trying to break my habit of only wearing gold. But obviously couldn't help picking out this massive tribal style gold necklace encrusted with bronze stones which looked like something out of topshop but at least half the price. I said I wouldn't buy any clothes this week but couldn't resist this nude long sleeves shirt with a colourful floral pattern from New Look which I can picture pairing with a plain bandeau dress and my chelsea boots. I'm a complete sucker for anything that is chiffon and draped with an interesting pattern! In fact, saw this Bleach Python Shirt in All Saints which I would give my left arm for but it was £120 which I can't help thinking is just way too overpriced for what it actually is.

My outfit today was pretty casual and easygoing, just a plain denim colour vest with a denim waistcoat and aztec pattern leggings to add a little fun and character. They're also dead comfy to wear and quite thick so will be good for the upcoming chilly winter months. Also wore my brown Michael Kors wedges which I bought in the sale in Spain but are slightly too big for me so need to invest in some insoles pronto! Managed to do my nails in an ombre style last night starting with a bright pink and fading to a neutral shade, actually quite like this style and might try it again with a different colour maybe turquoise or something.
