These walking blues..

blazer: primark
necklace, blouse: matalan
leather skirt: matalan
heels: irregular choice

I feel as though Matalan ought to start sponsoring me; this outfit it almost entirely them (although not all recent), which seems to be quite common over the last few days. The leather skirt and the necklace were a couple of the things I picked up on a little trip there last week, which was basically a knitwear mission. I'd seen a Christmas jumper on their site, which is basically The Best Christmas Jumper in The World. I'm sure I'll post about it soon. And also a jumper which would be perfect for my Mum as one of her Christmas presents.

This is pretty much exactly what I had in mind for this necklace when I picked it up. I's almost forgotten I owned this blouse, but the colours in both the blouse and the necklace matched the leather skirt and this Primark blazer pretty well, I thought. I can't seem to find either of them on the website, but they were both in the 'New In' sections in the store.

This skirt is a bit of a mystery. In the shop and in these photos, it seems to look the lovely aubergine colour I thought it was, but when I got it out of the wardrobe to put it on, it looked distinctly brown and I genuinely thought I'd been confused or picked up the wrong thing in the shop. Odd. Hopefully it looked OK for a meeting, anyway. I did feel rather colourful compared with the other people there. Ah well.

I feel as though it's been a long week, but it's almost the weekend. I'm really not someone who copes too well with "doing nothing" but I haven't really got many firm plans this weekend and I'm glad. I have a few errands to run on Saturday, cinema tickets for Sunday and other than that? I'm looking forward to some times at home for the first time in what seems like months. After I get these flipping walls cleaned, this evening, that is. Gggrrrr.


  1. Matalan seems to be on fire recently judging by your buys!

  2. loooove that necklace, such nice colours in it. I'm going to London this weekend but kind of wish I was at home xx

  3. That is definitely the best christmas jumper ever, who doesn't love robots?! Your necklace is lovely and the blazer really ties the whole outfit together! Lovely <3
