the city's a stone book

Body - 2nd hand
Shorts&Joint ring - H&M
Blazer - Grandma's old
Cross ring - Urban Outfitters
Bracelet - Gift/Avon
Socks - Primark
Shoes - Skopunkten

I did have a blue polka dot brolly to match my shorts, but I ditched it once I got to the city. It's such a hassle to walk with an umbrella among all the people and trying to get into a shop without poking someone's eye. And it was only a slight drizzle most of the time, so the only one suffering was my hair that gets so frizzy and curly! I actually like walking in the rain (I think I've said that before), but enough's enough. And today when it's finally not raining, I'm feeling poorly and staying in bed instead of going out in the sun. How typical.

Oh, and I wore heels for the first time in about a month, maybe more. I tend to be more practical and you won't normally be seeing me in heels at uni or when I know there'll be lot of walking involved on my day. My feet are in a serious need to get used to heels again, though. After walking to the city, walking around in the city and walking back from the city, my poor legs were dead. And I had managed to get a blister and a wee abrasion that was bleeding. Damn you, suffering for beauty! Usually these wedges are so comfortable (and they aren't even high!), so it must be just a lack of high heels in my use. Will change that!

P.S. Since yesterday I've been done with the first year of uni, bring on the trumpets!

Hurrah for being done the first year! What are you going to do over the summer? Do you have a student house lined up for next year?

Ohh O'neils I love that pub, you should go on St Paddys day next year, it's loads of fun, although we were queuing for ages to get in!

Do you ever go to revolutions in millennium square?

You look lovely and love the hand armour!

Totes understand what you mean regarding heels. I've been wearing them on and off for a while, struggling to get back into the habit of wearing heels.

I love your jewellery here, you have good taste! :-) Thanks for your comment on my blog. My blog name is indeed named after the Paul McCartney song! Only the coolest of people know this! :-) Most people think I'm an actual "temporary secretary" by occupation. Have had a few tweet me and have a go at me for spelling errors, because i'm "supposed to be a secretary"! x
