With my big hair and rose print choker I felt very 90s in this outfit. The 90s called… they want their accessories back!

If you put two things on a pair of shoes (namely, pointed toes and criss-cross laces) I will be there: as this recent addition to my collection will attest. These are from ASOS http://www.asos.com/asos/asos-lois-lace-up-pointed-ballet-flats/prd/6680783?iid=6680783 and I can see them getting a lot of wear over the coming months (but hopefully not so much wear that I wear them out – should I buy a backup pair now?!). The rest of my outfit was fairly simple – just some black jean-style trousers and a black and white check print blouse top, both of which I’ve had since this time last year.

I took a couple of days off work right before Easter to attend a family wedding so it felt like I’d had a nice long break, even though it was really just two days plus the standard Easter weekend. I’ve also had a birthday since we last chatted.

This was my Easter Monday errand-running outfit. The jacket is the same as the grey one I acquired recently: I liked that one so much that I asked for the navy version for my birthday. If you are tall then I would highly recommend this jacket (it comes in black too), it is fairly warm, super stretchy and an awesome length.

The temperatures have nose-dived again recently so it’s back to sweaters for the time being.

This was just a quick few snaps on my phone on the last day of work for me before the Easter holidays. We took a couple of days off to attend a family wedding so it was a short working week indeed. I smartened up my khaki jeans/trousers with a jersey blazer and added stripes because, you know, stripes.

The shoes were a £3.50 bargain last year at Primark. I had some New Look striped shoes in my wardrobe a few years back and wore them out. I really missed having them so I was pleased to find this pair last year. I don’t know whether they have the same ones this spring, but they certainly have lots of styles for £3.50.

I am totally loving these leopard print pumps. The print just gives the casual shoes a little something extra I feel.

Yes, I got another version of this t shirt. Who am I to resist anything in army green right now?! I had a 20% off code too, so it was all good. Speaking of these t shirts, my grey one has mysteriously gone missing. According to Instagram I haven’t worn it since 16th March (surely not?) (and also, see, there IS a point to logging all your outfits on Instagram) and when I looked for it Friday evening to hang up to wear Saturday, I couldn’t find it. I conducted an extensive search for it on Saturday morning but to no avail. So I ask you this: if you were a grey t shirt, where would you hide?

I put on some smart-ish jeans and layered up the navy for this casual Friday look. I have been looking for a navy jersey jacket for ages and finally found one in ASDA. And since I had a gift card it didn’t cost me anything either. The cross strap top is from last year and I modified it – there were two crosses originally, designed to be worn in the back. I cut one off and turned the top around. And the tank top is old M&S and purely there for modesty and another layer as it wasn’t that warm the day I wore this.
