Nail Varnish-'Airplane' - Topshop.

I've only just realised I look a little cynical etc with this post/title, being Valentines Day and all; but this is actually what I wore today! It is kind of forgiveable, my not making the connection after I eventually dragged myself out of bed at a silly morning hour, really.

I don't mind anyway, looking through my wardrobe, I'd say a good chunk is made up of various 'blue hues.'
This is the shirty thing I was on about yesterday, and the skirt, well. I have been lusting after a velvet skirt for a log time now, so when I found this on Ebay, I couldn't help myself. I actually thought it was black when I purchased it, then received it blue. Re-reading the selling thing, it does say blue, but I love it anyway. And for the cheap price I found it, I may 'puch the boat out' as they say, and go a-hunting for a black one too.

My day has pretty much consisted of college, painting, painting my nails and eating Chinese food tonight. Nothing much special for the whole vday thing, but being more of a 'couple-y thing,' I was quite contented with the raspberry creme brulee my mama bought:)


Happy Valentines!

  7. Lovely post! I don't have very much blue in my closet, so this is nice to see and very inspiring. I really like your outfit (nice to see that it's not all Valentines-y...you really stand out in the blogosphere today, since I feel like everyone has been posting pictures of their pink and red outfits!).
