What I Wore // Birthday grub



(hello pasty legs)!


Top - M&S
Skirt - M&S
Belt - F&F at Tesco
Shoes - Primark
Earrings - River Island



M&S is a shop thats always frustrated me. I've heard people talk about finding gems in there where I have always seen it as totally beyond me, its like sophisticated clothing for those a little older than myself. However, I had a voucher from Christmas so mooched around in there for absolutely ages trying to find something - And then I came across these two items at the same time in the 'Limited Collection.' Wa-hey!

I wore this outfit the night before my birthday to mine and my boyfriends absolute favourite restaurant. The interior is just spot on (as is the food)! Its decorated with leather, skulls, rustic wood and grand horse paintings dotted around. Perfect! I felt like dressing up a bit to shake off some exam stress and loosen up a bit for my birthday. I spent my actual birthday in Cambridge shopping and making fudge at the fudge kitchen - We took some amazing photos there, I'll share them soon to make you drool. 

Have you ever found anything amazing in M&S, or do you not even look?

  1. Happy (belated) Birthday to you. Hope you had a lovely day and enjoyed your food and fudge making. Loving your M&S selections, sadly the only nice things I've ever had from there are undies, but my mum has had some lovely bits- things that I would wear.

  6. Happy Birthday! You look amazing :D I wish I had the confidence to bare my legs, but I always wear tights. I rarely look in M&S but last Summer I found some amazing red wedges for £24 :)

  13. The third picture is really nice! I always seem to find things in there when I'm not even looking. I mostly only shop in there when I'm looking for presents for other (older) people, but I've ended up with a few lovely pieces for my own wardrobe. These two pieces are really lovely, especially the sparkly jumper!
