Shrug It Off…

[Shrug, Forever21 T-shirt Matalan, Skirt H&M, Stag Necklace and Tights Primark]

On Monday, I popped into London for the day to go to the album launch event in Oxford Street for one of my favourite bands, You Me At Six! I apologise to my Twitter followers for being an over excited fan girl that day… haha. I missed out on this ind of thing when I was younger, due to living in the countryside, so you could say I’m making up for lost time! I made sure I got there early enough to snag one of the wristbands, as there were only limited numbers available, which meant that I had quite a timely wait in the day before things kicked off in the evening. Naturally, during this wait, it meant I ended up buying a couple of things – oops!

I’m rather pleased with this pink skirt, since I’ve got a similar one that I bought from H&M years ago, which I’ve practically worn to death; I’ve been trying to replace it for a while, and with this one only costing £7 in the sale, who was I to say no?! I didn’t quite realise how creased it was until I uploaded my photos, so next time I’ll be getting the iron out before I put it on… at the age of 21 I should no longer be dodging the ironing!

Having been a fan of Forever 21 for a few years now, I am more than thrilled about the fact that we now have one in London – yay! I’ve always felt that the prices were very, very reasonable, and I’ve always been particularly impressed by their shoe and jewellery collections. I had a bit of a ‘wow’ moment when I walked upstairs to the jewellery department, it was a magpie’s heaven! It was pretty much a given that I’d end up parting with some cash in there, and I’m happy that I spent my money on something I’ve been looking for for a while – this cute little slouchy floral shrug, what do you think?

I’ve regularly been skipping over flimsy Primark creations similar to this, which have tempted me in the past, but I was glad I held out for this one because not only does it have a lining, but the print reminds me of the cherry blossom tree I used to have in my garden when I was younger, which makes it that little bit more special! I’m looking forward to wearing it out on my trip to LA and Las Vegas later this month, with a nice little dress in the evening : ) I can’t wait!

  1. That is such a pretty shrug – I love the pattern. I still haven’t made it to the Forever21 store yet – definitely going to try and make it this week sometime!
