At last the snow has gone and I can finally resort back to wearing normal footwear! I was exactly like bambi on the ice and nothing sounded more scary than slipping on Oxford Street so it was taking me hours to get anywhere. I'm also fed up of wearing 13592 layers and then melting on the tube so I really hope the weather picks up soon or I'm moving somewhere tropical!

I've really got into wearing jeans lately which is strange as I never owned a pair until a couple of months ago. I always believed they emphasised the stumpy-ness of my legs so I avoided them. I really love these deep purple waxed Leigh jeans and I think they are actually flattering for once. The fabric is really soft and stretchy so it doesn't feel like wearing a typical denim pair of jeans. I paired them with this black knitted jumper which has a sheer panel across the shoulders and neck. I'm extremely picky when it comes to knitwear, especially from high street brands, as I find so many pieces too itchy. The yarn of this jumper is really soft against the skin and light, it also isn't too thick so fits perfectly under my winter coat.

I can't get enough of statement necklaces at the moment and purchased this new one yesterday whilst browsing in Topshop on my lunch break. I was really drawn to the detailing on the turquoise stones, I think it's meant to be a small painting of a flower but I couldn't get a good close up photograph due to the lighting in my hallway. I'm definitely going to end up very poor after working on Oxford Street for the next 3 months so maybe it's time I start budgeting...
