Culottes





necklace, river island
sweater, river island
culottes, miss selfridge
tights, marks & spencer
brogues, new look


It's freezing today! I'm going to my friends house tomorrow for the weekend so I've been spending the day sorting things out, packing, planning and keeping warm. As you can see I'm still trying to coax myself into wearing knee high socks! I didn't wear them out today. I think perhaps I may try wearing them on a night out this weekend as I'll feel braver wearing them around friends in public.

I'm hopefully going to see Black Swan tomorrow! So excited, I've wanted to see it ever since I heard about it. Natalie Portman is one of my favourite actresses and I love her films (especially Garden State - perhaps my all time favourite movie) so I'm really looking forwards to it. I can relate to the story lines. I grew up dancing ballet and seen many versions of Swan Lake. My sister was going to become a professional dancer a few years back only she's also rather clever so now she's studying chemical engineering instead. I'm so glad she decided to go with her brain over her talent - although come to think about it that is a very odd thing to say. It's a seriously competitive, tough, high pressured profession and I would hate to have thought of her not being able to handle it.

I won't be able to blog over the weekend as I'll be at a friends house so for now I wish you all a happy weekend!

the culottes look lovely, especially with the knee socks, i hope you have the courage to wear them out because they look great. i know how you feel though, i felt nervous wearing them out at first too.

Whichever makes your sister happy. :)

Love your skirt in the photo and I totally agree with you. I really love Natalie Portman, she's talented and not to mention a Harvard Grad. I haven't seen Garden State but I was really impressed with her acting in the Black Swan as well as in V for Vendetta (Loved her in Closer as well). She's really very versatile and my girl crush.

She's my bet for this years Oscars. :)

love,
