top + blazer: H&M
shorts + necklace: New Look
tights + bracelet: Topshop

Smart casual little outfit. My top  is actually a jersey dress which i bought last year, i don't really like how it sits as a dress, i don't find it flattering on my body shape because i have wide hips. So, i've tucked it into these denim shorts and made it baggy. I'm really not a fan of skin-tight clothing at the moment, so baggy it is! Outfit looked really boring so i decided to wear some knee high socks over my tights to give a suspender look,(i still really need to buy some suspender tights!) + an oversized blazer. The blazer is a size 14 as it was the only one in stock when i bought it, its absolutely huge on me, but it doesn't look half bad. For me, i'm actually wearing a hella lot of jewellery. The full works, earrings,rings, necklace and bracelet, probably went OTT but ohwell. You can't see my earrings but there silver balls, my 'peace' bracelet just because its major cute. I'm wearing 3 rings because my fingers just felt all bare and i've got my little clock necklace on.

I had therapy this morning, which went quite well. I'm really not one to talk about how i feel, i like to bottle things up and not bother anyone with my problems. I don't think a lot of myself you see. Me and mother popped to the shops after to get some bits and pieces and i picked up these.
Barry M lipstick 153. Rimmel Natural Bronzer 025, and this little notepad. My lips feel boring at the moment, i've been wearing lip balm instead of adding any colour, so i thought this natural(ish) colour would be perfect, it's really nice actually, i like Barry M's lipstick range. I had to buy this bronzer today, i ran out of my Models Own blush the other day so have been settling for this bronzer in the mean time. But me, being my clumsy self dropped it today on my wooden floor and it broke into a million little pieces. DAMMIT, there wsn't much left and it was going everywhere, so i just bought a new one. So at therapy today, i was told to go away and buy a notepad. I have to write down 3 positive thoughts about myself daily and if i get complimented to my face i have to write it down. I'm like the most negative person i know, so this is in an aim to hopefully build my self confidence, self esteem and make me more positive. Fingers Crossed i suppose.

You look amazing!
Love the striped top combined with the gray blazer (which is great as well!)
And those shorts are so cute (:

It's so good that you're going to therapy,
I totally understand (I think) how you feel,
that feeling that you don't want to bother others with all of your crappy problems and stuff,
hope you will feel better very quickly!

Very nice classic outfit. I'm pretty partial to stripes and the blazer definitely revs up its casualness.
