black ‘n blue

Matalan dress, Primark tights, ASOS boots.

The cold weather means breaking out the over knee boots again, except they aren’t quite over knee on me and would probably look better if they weren’t so gape-y but whatever, I can layer long socks under them and no-one can tell!

How is it Friday already? Speediest week ever. Fact. We finally got paid yesterday, much to everyone’s relief but I’m not sure I see shopping on my weekend forecast; epic hibernation is more likely to occur. It’s been one of those weeks that has given me my sparkle back, a few good days at work; taking bloods, solving problems and generally feeling useful really helps.

How has your week been? Do you have exciting weekend plans? I’m just going to bide my time and see if anything last minute pops up!

  2. Wow, you really have the longest legs in the world, or if you don’t, those boots make you look like you do. A win either way!

    Looking lovely as always, glad you’ve had a good week! 🙂

  5. Have you ever heard the song ‘Black and Blue’ by counting crows? It brings back some fairly heavy memories for me so I literally cannot listen to it without howling, but your post title reminded me!

  21. I’m loving matalan at the moment!

    I’m *trying* to wear knee high boots today myself buy they’re slouchy and keep falling down so I look a bit like Dick Whittington (in my head).
