hairband: Accessorize
blouse & cardigan: New Look
shorts & tights: Topshop

I like this outfit, i've gone for quite a smart look, and then added the cardigan to make it more casual. This pussybow blouse is more of a tunic, but i've tucked it in because it goes quite nicely with these smart shorts. I love the floral pattern on the blouse, it's got a lovely spring feel to it. Someone suggested that maybe i should wear some form of hair accessory, so i searched around and managed to find this hairband which has a floppy bow on it. The pattern and colour on the hairband is near enough identical to that of the blouse, so i decided it would look quite nice, makes me feel real childlike though! Also, my hair is usually in one of two styles as you've probably realised it's either always loose, or tied up, i never do anything fun with it, as it's at such an awkward length, but today i thought i'd push the boat out and plait it. I've plaited it to the side, and made it quite loose and messy. What do you think about the plait & the hairband?

Me and the mother spent a nice little day out today, went into Barnet and just walked around. I needed a reason to get out of the house as my M.E is progressively getting worse and the worse it's ever been at the moment, so as much as i should be resting.. looking at the same four walls day in, day out is driving me crazy! So we went for a walk, went and got some bits & pieces for my brothers Nintendo DS which he's obsessed with, picked up a few pieces from Superdrug. (Neither Boots or Superdrug had my Lee Strafford Hair Growth Treatment! - not impressed!) We went into a couple of charity shops, and in one of the shops i managed to find these two lovely pieces that i've pictured below. A blue aran knit jumper and a pink aran knit cardigan. BEAUTIFUL! Each piece cost £3.50, which is major cheap! Very pleased. The Blue jumper is from a place called Antartex and the pink cardigan is from Blanc Bleu. Then we went to Starbucks, mum had a hot chocolate and a cheese & tomato panini and i just had a bottle of water as i had no energy whatsoever and just kind of wanted to go home. Was a nice afternoon with mumsy i love spending time with her, but it totally took it out of me!

ALSO, i'm possibly the most clumsy person on this planet. It's crazy! I managed to kind of walk into the door as well as slamming it on myself, and it hit my knee and now my knee is the size of a balloon. I had an icepack on it for ages and its still not got any less painful or less swollen. Considering it's the knee i've dislocated a few times before it's kind of worrying me a tad, fingers crossed it'll be fine! Only reason it's annoyed me so much is that it's on my left leg, and i had my operation on my right leg so can't hold my own weight on that leg for long. Looks like i'm back to beign sofa bound for a few days until my knee decides to feel a bit easier, (please feel better soon!!!)

Barnet?! Are you serious?! You must live so near to me! I was in Barnet yesterday with a mate :) I was wearing shorts like yours yesterday and the cashier in WH Smith thought I was crazy! "Are you not cold?!" She gave me my change and told me to go home and put some trousers on (in a friendly, jokey way - she was young!).

Love this look on you. The cardigan is such a gorgeous colour x x

Gorgeous outfit Courtney (: I quite often wear something that would be typically "smart" and dress down with tights and a chunky cardigan. Your headband absolutely finishes off this outfit! Lovely buys sweet, so jealous of your ability to shop! I'm on a budget for what seems like the rest of my life aha! xxx
