Tell me about it, stud

I really, really like this jacket

Don’t you hate it when you place a substantial ASOS order and everything actually fits!? I had a bit of a spree last month and picked up a few ‘essentials.’ Essentials definitely include a studded collar denim jacket and pink mini skirt right? Sometimes it’s always the stuff you pick up on a whim that you end up loving the most. I am obsessed with this jacket. It is slightly oversized but it works. Paired with this pastel pink mini tones the edgy-ness down a little bit. It’s another outfit I can see myself returning to a lot this summer. My little pineapple T-shirt is still very firmly in my favourite-things-to-wear pile, and I’m falling in back in love with the classic tee…

I am SO grateful for this three day weekend. I’m starting to think all weekends should be three days… Work and life have just been so manic recently, and one extra day off makes all the difference. My anxiety had a bit of a moment the other week and I think I had just run myself to near low battery again. If anything it made me realise that I can’t become too complacent. I think deep down I probably knew that I was working myself too hard and doing too much, but it’s so difficult to stop sometimes, especially when you’re starting to feel better. This weekend has just been super chilled. I spent yesterday laying in the garden in the sun with a book, and I’ve managed to sleep until I wake up for the whole weekend. It really is so important to take time out for yourself.

Shout out to Gem for taking these snaps again. We had an absolute HOOT taking these photos, mainly because her floaty top kept blowing up in the wind. My abs hurt from laughing so hard. You can see her outfit and her bloopers reel in her latest post!
