it's my birthday & i'll blog if i want to






shorts: missguided | vest: primark | cardigan: h&m | bracelets: h&m, river island and ASOS

Despite it being my birthday I've opted for a casual outfit since I'm only spending the day lazing around with family and eating lots of cake. Did you know that cake eaten on your birthday has no calories? BRILLIANT. I thought I'd let the shorts speak for themselves (how amazing is the pattern?!) and paired them with a basic white vest top, accessorising with my ever growing collection of friendship bracelets. It's turning into a bit of an obsession now - I can't leave H&M without a new one.

Thank you for all your comments, tweets and emails wishing me happy birthday. It would take too long to reply to each one individually but I do appreciate them all! My little blog hit 1000 followers last night and I'm not usually one for paying much attention to numbers but I'm so happy and never imagined 100 readers when I first started blogging, nevermind 1000 so thank you for reading!

  22. Happy birthday! I just discovered your blog today and I simply adore it. :) I looked back on so many of your older posts and you have such lovely taste in style, take beautiful photos and have good taste in music.

    Loving your outfit here too, of course. I'd love to own a pair of Miu Miu inspired animal print shorts! Even with a plain top, it makes for such a cute outfit. Your bracelet combination is really nice too!

  40. Most people have no trouble getting themselves trainees loan with poor credit
    because credit score is normally not really checked out whenever
    you get a loan for college payday loans this change will reduce theburden of house loan interest of countless loan holders.
