on yer bike

Skirt: Zara
Converse via Sarenza
I don’t think I’ve ever spent £35 on a top before but there was something about this one from Urban Outfitters that had me parting with my cash. I bought it whilst in Cardiff as part of my Birthday weekend so it was a justified treat and one I will get plenty of wear from. I find tops a struggle but this ticks all the right boxes: good length, quirky print and falls beautifully. 
This is actually an old outfit, one I wore before the bank holiday weekend when the weather was nice (who would have thought it eh?) The contrast compared to this weekend is quite striking; the need for layers and a thick coat was not amusing in the slightest. Thankfully it didn’t put the boy and I off adventures to Ikea, I even braved a football game on TV and survived.
I’m feeling more settled this week, back in to the normal working routine and patterns. What can I say? I’m a creature of habit and not afraid to admit it.
On a personal note, I had an anonymous comment asking how *I* was doing the other day. Quite simply I’m doing really, really well. Having fun, living life and feeling happier and healthier than ever. It’s slow progress but more change is afoot and I’m ready to embrace it.
this is quite the wordy post, sorry…how are YOU doing?
