One Hundred and Thirty

Blouse: Matalan. Skirt: Primark. Heels: New Look.

Trying to get photos lately is a nightmare (as other bloggers know!) because of the stupid darkness. And with littlebum working 5647383 hours a day, I never get to see him, let alone pester him to take my shots! So today, I grabbed a box (classy right?) and pottered outside into our new decked garden (FANCY right?!) and raced up and down in between clicks and flashes. The little old lady upstairs bless her, didn't know WHAT was going on! She must think of me as a little perculiar. I don't blame her to be fair, especially when I got my heel stuck in the decking! Nonetheless they turned out alright.. So I'd like to think!
This blouse was a new purchase yesterday, after the terrible start to a week I needed cheering up, and shopping fixes this! To be fair, I hadn't bought anything in a fair few weeks! I couldn't decide between this polka dot number (obviously it ended up winning.. mainly for the peter pan collar!) or this top. I think it's a little crazy and daring (the losing top) but something about it makes me still REALLY want it! I'll let myself settle into work before I rock in with some alphabet top! 
So this week, I teamed up with My Label, I am really excited to work alongside them. I must say, I've been on the website a couple of times, and found some BEAUT pieces like this ADORABLE deer print playsuit and especially my all time favourite owl shorts. I literally love all things owl, and when I saw them, after squealing excitedly, I saved to my favourites.. I think they'll be on my Christmas list, although for me, culotte style shorts don't really, how can I put it, flatter my figure. My ass is big enough as it is, and somehow with shorts, they try to MAKE it bigger! But we shall see.. At the end of the day, it's all down to Father Christmas to choose!
This weekend I am a busy bee, as I have been every weekend last month and next month. I am off to London, to visit the Queen. Obviously NOT. But I am going there to visit 3 of my friends from my last season. So if you see a tramp walking down Oxford Street asking for money to buy clothes, well that'll be me! And then Sunday my parents are coming down, taking me for some dinner (because I can't afford food.. i'm joking!) as a celebratory and 'here goes' new career. My dad said to me that if after two months of being in my new job, that I hate it, he's going to come down and punch me! LOL. No wonder I'm nervous!
And finally.. Breaking it down for you: I got myself a domain! Whoop, no longer got the blogspot on the end. 
I am very touched by your kind feedback on my last post. I was really unsure about posting it!
I got stuck in a dress yesterday in some changing rooms and little A (2years old) was shouting "Katy, you stuck. You broke it. You STUCK". I was literally mortified. It took me 15 minutes to get it off! TRAUMA.
I am loving New Girl SO SO much! Zooey is incredibly funny, as are the 3 guys she lives with! Get downloading it NOW!
And that't it from me. I'm off to eat now. Because I always do! Sweet weekend beauts.

  3. Haha hilarious post! I do like the top you didn't choose, but I think you definitely went with the right choice - I love anything polka dot. I have a camera stand in my room, it's so annoying having to run back and forth the to camera! x

  4. Love the alphabet top! I think I need that for work. I'm sure it'd go down a storm. I got raised eyebrows yesterday because I wore Ink coloured tights. I am going to download New Girl now - totally forgot about that! xx

  5. You gorgeous lady! I love the outfit together, I love the contrast between the nude shade with the monotone black and white. Would happily wear this myself.

    Definitely know how you feel with posing for photos - the people opposite us must be alarmed at the amount of times the flash goes off by the window. So difficult to take pictures in my flat.. we get no natural light at all and have rubbish light bulbs. Grim!

  11. You're so beautiful! I adore the polka dot blouse I think I shall definitely be heading to check out Matalan ASAP because I've rather neglected it for a couple of years and seem to have missed out on some GEMS!

    I love the story of these photos ha-ha I tried to take my own outfit pictures yesterday and so many things went wrong:
    1)My memory card dropped down the back of my chest of draws
    2)My camera had no battery
    3)My webcam came out blury
    4)I finally took photos then realised I'd smudged my lipstick on my teeth!

    As you can tell I'm so composed and successful at these kind of tasks!

    I feel your pain regarding your 'rant' yesterday, but you should always blog about what you want to blog about and never feel like you need to change or that you'll be looked down on :)

    Your blog is fast becoming one of my favourites and if I ever see a commenter on one of your posts just typing 'follow me' I will personally rage at them myself!

    Have a lovely weekend sweet :)

  16. I love your new blouse, polka dots are always a winner for me, I have too many polka dot tops/dresses yet can't seem to stop buying them! Have a lovely time in London! The stuck in the dress incident sounds like a bit of a nightmare, why do they make them so much harder to get out of when they go on fine! x

  18. Gorgeous outfit! And the other top you nearly got is really lovely too, I haven't been to Matalan since I stopped working there and now I feel like I'm missing out on all the great items. Although that doesn't mean I'd want to go back to working there :P
