British Redcoat

I will start with two disclaimers. One, I literally had no idea this skirt was so short until I went to edit the pictures. It's too big on my waist so I belt it, but I think maybe it's supposed to be a hip skirt so this could explain the length. I apologise for exposing so much leg in my last two posts. Two, the lighting today was a little bitch and I just couldn't get myself in the right position. Therefore there aren't many pictures because the only ones I like are basically all the same. So I apologise.

Not an awful lot to report today. I went for dinner and to a Feminist event last night with my friend Michelle and then watched a movie with some of her housemates. Today, I went to the library and for sushi with Michelle but I ended up coming home early cause my cold, which I thought I'd gotten rid of, has come back with a vengeance :[[ Tonight I am going to a drag show on campus and then to a friend's for a sleepover with the girls! The rest of the weekend will be spend doing the usual- homework! But the boy is back tomorrow so I'll see him on Monday and then it's my 21st Birthday on Wednesday- eeek!!

jacket- zara
skirt- primark
blouse- H&M
shoes- H&M

This jacket is my new baby. As you might have read, I wanted a trench coat in New York but it turns out they're not really my style. Fortunately, I found this gorgeous red blazer instead. The material is really thick and gorgeous and it's such a great fit. It was exactly what I wanted. I've worn it a couple of times but I've seen so many bloggers in red blazers- I can't wait to see what I can do with it!

Well I want to try and squeeze a nap in before I go out so I'd better be going :]] I might get time to come back tomorrow- I really loved this week's Friend Friday questions so I might make it Friend Sunday :]]

Have a great Saturday!
