(Outfit Details: Hat – Primark, Jacket – Dorothy Perkins, Jumper – Primark, Skirt – Topshop, Shoes – Topshop, Shirt – ASOS)


It’s become a little tradition with my parents and brother that on a Sunday afternoon, we’ll adventure to a new place. Today we decided to visit Corbridge, a quaint village only 20 minutes drive away from where we live. The weather was, well, interesting. We arrived wearing sunglasses unable to believe how warm it was, and left wearing gloves because it began to snow… all within an hour or so. Alas, we took a wander to the riverside, where I was able to snap a few outfit photograph between dog walkers walking past (anyone else too scared to take photographs when there’s people around?!) and I think they came out alright.

Not really sure what to wear with the bipolar weather, I decided to go for one of my fail-safe outfits. I picked up this wonderful check skirt around 6 months ago and it’s been a favourite ever since, which may or may not be to do with the fact that I feel like Cher from Clueless in it… Ugh, as if! Since it’s quite in-your-face I tend to wear it with plain tees or shirts, and today I chose to pair it with this beauty from ASOS. It’s scalloped edge had me at hello. Looking back at these photographs, these dainty shoes are anything but flattering on my rather dumpy legs, but nevertheless, I love their ankle straps and they’re super comfy (after weeks of painfully having to break them in.. ouch). I feel a bit like a traitor, but today I dumped the bowler hat. Yep, I did feel like I was missing a left arm, but there’s something about this Fedora hat from Primark which I sort of love more, kill me. I can definitely see myself wearing this a lot more often, today was the first day I was actually brave enough to wear it further than my back garden! And yes, before you ask, I do have hands… just short arms and leather jackets with long sleeves, haha! #shortgirlproblems

This week has been a pretty hectic one, with university deadlines all over the place and a jam-packed social calendar *cough* who am I kidding *cough*, blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. If you follow me on Twitter, then you’ll know by my spam of over-emosh tweets that I went to see my childhood heroes, Fall Out Boy, live for the first time. I’d waited around 8 years and it was a night I’ll definitely never forget. I ended up being at the barrier for their acoustic set (only metres away from them – see my Instagram pictures!), battled my anxiety for the first time in a long long time and had a total blast. My inner 14 year old emo kid was incredibly happy, they’ve always been ‘that’ band for me and there may have been a teary eye or two!

Do you have a band like that? One you’ve grown up with? I’d love to know!

    Oooooooh I have a friend visiting next weekend and we're off to Corbridge for the day on Saturday. I've never been before but heard it's nice so looking forward to it! Glad there's a river, are there some nice coffee shops as well?

    I'm the same, I feel so daft taking photos sometimes when there's other people about. The worst is taking photos of food in restaurants just as the waiter is coming back … AWKWARD!

    Love your outfit x

      Corbridge is super lovely! Well there wasn't many places open as we went on a Sunday, we went to one called Massey's which did lovely cakes (pretty overpriced though so beware).
      Ah, I'm not brave enough to even bring my camera out in restaurants yet, so you're ahead of me there ; )

      Thank you!
      xx

    I've only driven through Corbridge, it looks like a lovely place and I WILL make the effort to go this summer – I live only half an hour way. I never take advantage of these lovely towns, I always head straight to the city! x

    This is such a nice outfit, I really like the skirt and once again this confirms to me that I need a leather jacket.

      I used to be a total You Me At Six fangirl, met them quite a few times too! I have some pretty funny stories, including once when Josh spotted my dance moves (as I was at barrier) and came over and started to copy me ahaha so I was known as the girl with the dance moves by them that night! I hope you have a fun time! : ) xx
