I could watch you for a lifetime

Friday 9 March 2012

Blazer+Belt: Primark. Top: New Look. Skirt+Tights: Topshop.
Ring: Ebay. Nails: Barry M.

I would much prefer to wear this outfit without the blazer, and possibly without the tights too, but i am an absolute sucker when it comes to the cold and i'm afraid some of my outfits have to suffer due to that. Just taking that one shot with the blazer off left me shivering for a good few minutes. I also apologise for how emotionless and wide-eyed i look in these photos, my insomnia seems to be back with a vengance, resulting in Courtney getting next to no sleep. Nothing a good cup of tea can't sort out.

I love this pastel yellow, lace top and i've been wating to wear it since i bought it but i found it quite difficult to find something to wear it with that wasn't black. The pastel theme is huge at the moment during this S/S12, so i thought it would be the perfect opportunity to pair it with a light coloured skirt too. This pink tube skirt i purchased about a year ago, it's quite long and stretchy and i find it quite hard to get it sitting just right due to this as it usually bunches. I whipped out a trusty belt to solve this and it kinda worked, it also seperates the yellow from the pink and adds a nice block colour in at the waist. I found this double ring cross on Ebay and i had to buy it when i saw it, i had one a while ago and it vanished (probably due to one of my dogs!), so it was definately time i got myself a new one. Rings never usually fit me as i have such small fingers, but this fitted perfectly - it was just meant to be!

I had acupuncture for the first time yesterday, for me, it was quite a scary experience, but i thought i can't exactly knock it till i've tried it. It was no where near as bad as i expected, but it did hurt. Perhaps i'm just a major wimp? I had it in my hand, head and knee. It was fine in my head, i didn't even feel it and forgot it was in there. But they attempted 5 times in my hand and it just wasn't having any of it and now i've got a lovely little bruise. It was only a trial to see if i would be willing to have it properly next time, i think i'm going to go for it, as i've heard the benefits from it can be so good and it really has helped some people i know. Have any of you had acupuncture? If so, did it help or not?

I like your outfit! :)

I want to try accupuncture (if I have the money one day), because I'm so fed up with my horrible PMS and I've heard that it helps to soften the symptoms!

I think it looks great with the blazer as well, so don't worry, to me, you still look perfect. Maybe because I love blazers, so it's not such a big deal :D

Love the pastel colours, I always wear black tights to keep warm too. Very rare that I go bar legged x

I love this outfit, even with the blazer and tights; I'm a sucker for blazers. Your outfit is great for spring, seeing as it's not warm enough to go out without a jacket.

I wish I didn't have to layer my outfits too, but I absolutely hate being cold. The outfit is lovely though, and looks great with the blazer.
