animal magic

This blouse; it must be 5/6 years old now, an impulse buy from Dorothy Perkins, unworn and languishing in my wardrobe. I re-discovered it last week whilst doing my usual “so many clothes yet nothing to wear” act and admitted defeat and placed it on the charity shop pile. Firmly embedded in my mind, a few days later I grabbed it off the pile and decided to finally try it on and see what it went with. Turns out it’s a pretty versatile top and now part of my working wardrobe.
This skirt has more than paid for itself since I snagged it in the River Island sale just after Christmas! It’s probably one of my most worn pieces, and despite the animal print it is perfect for the office.

Flash says relax.
Sorry for all the kitty pics! As you can see, someone has been milking his ordeal as much as possible. How can you refuse something so pathetic looking?

Happy Friday folk,
here’s to a quiet (violence free) weekend

    And I totally understand too, I’ve been posting a lot of Misty pics ever since I found out she was sick. When something’s wrong you really remember how precious your time with them is and I’m really trying to make the most out of it. And I’m hoping that it’ll still last years and years:)
