I wear your granddad's clothes.

These photos were taken in December, but lay forgotten in a folder somewhere in the depths of my computer until I unearthed them earlier. It would be a waste of a sunset if I didn't share them, so here they are! The church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, often finds itself in the shadow of the Liver building, and I hadn't explored the grounds of it before this day - it's odd how one big tourist attraction can distract you from everything in the surrounding area. This weekend was dedicated to sightseeing as Harriet came up from Essex to visit Liverpool. We (of course!) had a wander around the docks, ate lots, drank lots, and had a good catch up over a manicure (girl power ✌) as we hadn't seen each other since Christmas. But now she's headed home, and I'm sighing over my reading list - I think that calls for a pub quiz and a fleeting visit to York, perhaps?

I have no reason to complain, my feelings change.

I would go and straighten my hair the day it decides to start snowing again, but that's just the luck of the draw, I guess. With my middle parting, and oversized jumper (read: so darn comfy), this is probably the most "nineties grunge" I've ever dressed in the history of ever, but I kind of like it in contrast to my usual peter pan collared get ups. This is introducing my new investment piece too: the easy jean. After my last pair of jeans came to a high kickin' end, I thought I'd join the club with Olivia and Jazmine. When asos had 25% student discount I knew it was time, and used up the last of my voucher, meaning I managed to nab these for a slightly more reasonable price (£64, really?). They're way too long for my little legs, and maybe a bit too thin for my liking, but they fit my hips and waist which is an absolute novelty when you have an hourglass figure, which trumps their faults.

Anyway, I'm off to brave the wind/wet/mess that is the Liverpool weather - wish me luck! Hope you're all warm at home with a mug of tea (I may nick my flatmate's early grey today), and a good book.

Like a waterfall in slow motion, like a map with no ocean.

Coco dress: c/o Chi Chi. Black and gold maryjanes: New Look.

Outfits I wear on a night out tend to not feature on my blog. I'm not entirely sure why, but I can only put it down to a combination of last minute getting ready, and simply forgetting. This Chi Chi dress is pretty glamorous for me, the girl who tends to stick to skirts and a blouse, but as it was Georgia's twenty-first coming up, I knew I had to up my game, and who can resist a classic LBD? With the gold beading and tight (in a sucking you in way, not in a can't breathe/what are these rolls? way) nature of the dress, it made me feel slightly less self-conscious than I normally do in bodycon, which is a pretty big achievement.

I'm off out tonight for another friend's birthday (shout out to Nicola!), then speeding eastwards to Sheffield on the morrow. This week has absolutely flown by, can someone possibly lend me Bernard's Watch?
