One Hundred and Thirty One


Trilby: H&M Kids. Blouse: Internacionale. Lace top: Topshop.

I've always been a hat kinda person, and thankfully I can pull them off (So I'd like to hope anyway!) However I've always stuck to beanies and berets. So today, I stepped out of my comfort zone and purchased a trilby. Actually my wonderful Mama Mcfred did! I saw one in H&M in the adults section, but didn't really feel I'd wear it enough for £12. So on the way out, when I spotted this beaut, I couldn't grumble at £4.99! And being a happy shopper that I was, I popped it on straight away! It has a cute little bow, and a few sparkles.. which is always a winner! My dad kept laughing though.
Such a busy weekendo, I managed to be a full on grown up and make my way to London alone, AND get home! Although, on the train home I was too busy stressing that I'd miss X factor that actually realising if I was on the right train or not! It was so lovely to see two of my season friends, catching up, shopping (obviously!) and eating plenty of food and drinking plenty of coffee! Then pretty much the same today with my lovely Mama Mcfred and Papa G. They also brought us a super advent calender, which is currently staring right at me... Chocolate would be quite nice right about now!
So now, its time for me to snuggle down into bed with my favourite mug full of marshmallows, cream, oh and a bit of hot chocolate, littlebum and a film to put me to sleep. Ready for my big day tomorrow. I am literally so nervous. I completely OVER worry. So much so, that I went and bought a ready made lunch because I didn't want to rock in on my first day with my Hello Kitty lunchbox! IMAGINE what they'd think of me if it fell out of my handbag first thing in the morning.. They'd pretend they didn't know who I was!
On a sad note, I went to put on my FAVOURITE (after this jumper) knit today, and LO and BEHOLD, it was ruined. Literally. FIVE holes in the arm. And it was that stretched, littlebum and I could have gotten in it together! I couldn't believe it. Mama Mcfred laughed so much (tears in her eyes!) and all I could do was laugh and say "oh my". However, I know if I was alone I would have sat crying into it for hours. So, yes, basically, long live the red knit. God damn you washing machine.
I hope you all had a perfect weekend, and oohed and aahed at the fireworks (god I HATE when people do that!), had a slobby sunday and ate more food than you should have! That's what I'm about to do.


  1. I totally tried on that lace top yesterday :') i love how you've given it a collar:D katy you utter babe xx

  2. You really can pull off hats! I can't believe you got it from H&M Kids, might have to start exploring it!
    Ah, I'm glad you had a lovely time in London, I miss it so much!
    You look lovely, that colour really suits you!!
    I'm going to go pester someone to make me a hot chocolate, ha!

    Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  3. Oh no RIP red jumper, sometimes the washing machine is so naughty. It always (Mother) shrinks my clothes!
    Look at you rocking that hat!

  4. Good luck for tomorrow! I hope it all goes perfectly! xx

  5. I love the hat, and what a bargain, good idea looking in the kids department! Good luck with the new job tomorrow, I'm sure it'll be fine! I wish I had a hello kitty lunchbox! Sorry to hear about your jumper, my washing machine seems to be eating my clothes recently! x

  6. Good luck tomorrow - it'll be fine. Gutted about the jumper, is it current stock? That'd make it less gutting :) I actually had an angry conversation with Ariel a few months ago as their stupid in drum washing thing tore my favourite jumper, turns out they didn't care & I'm still gutted months on!x

  7. Pretty lace top :)
    And hat! I need a everyday hat! xx

  8. I went to my friends wedding at the start of the year, I think early feb, and wore a super cute black CUE dress. I spent a lot of money on it, and was super scared to wash it in the machine because I didn't want it to resize and the material to shrivel. So I haven't washed it. It's been sitting in my laundry basket for almost 10 months. And I did the same with my wedding dress. I didn't wash that for a year and a half.

    I hope your first day goes well and you make new work friends. Take your snappy lunchbox!


  9. Hats suit you beautifully :) I absolutely adore the lace and the colour of this top too - perfection.


  10. I absolutley love your hat, I recently got one from H&M too! x

  11. You look so amazing! I have been looking for a hat like that for ages, and £5 is a good price :) you look so cool xx

  12. I have to buy my hats from the kids section too! haha.

    Love that lace top, i must get one like it for Christmassy nights out :)
