OUTFIT AND OTHER THINGS

Tuesday, 8 May 2012

Bank Holiday Weekend saw me making a last minute decision to get on a train and go to see my bestie in Leeds. I spent Saturday dancing to motown in my Crown and Glory bandeau and my dungarees. If you ever get a chance to go to Moonstomp whilst in Leeds, definitely take it. The music is brilliant and it takes place in a community centre, leaving you feeling like you're partying in a school disco full of middle-aged mods. Fantastic.



I returned from Leeds with a much lighter purse, a new ear piercing and having made the spontaneous decision to re-pierce my nose. It's only a tiny stud, but I'm kind of digging it!

Here's what I wore today:

Hat - knitted; Necklace and Belt - Urban Outfitters; Top - Vila via ASOS; Skirt - Topshop; Boots - Vintage

The skirt was given to me by my bestie in Leeds, it's a size 8(!) so I do a little victory dance every time I manage to force it over my hips.

The hat is a gift for the boy, he's a huge Wes Anderson fan so I thought he might like to have a Team Zissou hat...


He's back from Japan so I'm seeing him tomorrow and will give him the hat then. Fingers crossed that he likes it!

How was your Bank Holiday weekend? Did you all have crazy adventures?

    1. Thank you, it was a great one! The pictures are so sweaty and grim, I don't think that my friends would forgive me for posting them, that was the only one where I'm on my own. It was a great night though!

  3. I love your dungarees and crown in first pic, so good! And the second outfit is awesome too. All skirts should have pockets.

  5. Now that I think about it, dungarees may be the only acceptable thing to wear while dancing to Motown!

    The second outfit is lovely - amazing skirt :)

    1. I must say, they give you lots of room to move around! Which is important, because my limbs get very flail-y when I try to dance!

      Thank you, the skirt was a lovely gift, I'm very happy with it!

  13. I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE ELSE USES THE WORD 'DIGGING'. I feel it is time for the comeback of other such words like 'bud' or 'freaking'. You look even more gorgeous for using it xxxx
