best of both worlds




Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. I have been so lazy today...this is no understatement - but we all deserve a lazy day right? ;) Nathan made me breakfast this morning and came to bring it to me and I only got as far as the orange juice and fell right back asleep (while sitting up) and the orange juice went all over my bed, all over the fruit salad, and thankfully woke me up! Im definately in a sleepy mood today..but ofcourse I got ready for the day and got out the door for some fresh air (thank goodness!) and thought 'what a perfect time to show them my new shorts!'

I got these beauty shorts sent to me from the lovelies at Threadsence and fell in love as soon as I saw them in the package. Suede and leather? Could there be anything better? It truly is the best of both worlds...aaaand thats not all! I won this bag (can you spot the bikini bottom print on it?!) from 'HerCatwalk' and was very excited about it - thankyou HerCatwalk! Love you girls.

Have a great rest of your Wednesday! Who is watching American Idol tonight? Eeep. I get so embarrassed for some of the people on there, but im such a sucker for it aswell! xo

  16. thanks for your sweet words, my love! and isn't that couch a DREAM?! believe it or not, i walked out my front door one day, and noticed it was sitting on my neighbors curb on garbage-pick up day with all of her garbage bins... yep, she was going to trash it! i literally screamed! my brother helped me drag it across the street to safety. ;) it needs some restoring, but it'll be good as new in no time!

  18. thanks so much kate for your comment :) your style is an inspiration as is your blog. I stalk it daily to check for updates :) xx

  20. Hello lovely,
    Happy Thursday to you, those shorts are just darling aren't they and you look fabulous ♥
    American Idol airs on a Thursday night in the UK so I will indeed be watching it this evening, love the panel of judges this year. Simon Cowell isn't doing it this year as he's going to be on the panel of his own show the X Factor which is airing in the US this year ...more talent show on the television ♥

    *following your blog*

    Eda ♥

  21. This outfit is definite Winter inspiration for me! I love the cardigan. It looks so comfy. I don't think I would have thought of styling it the way you did, so thanks for the inspiration.

  22. I love how your outfits may be a neutral color palette but they're always so interesting because of all the different textures you use. I mean, suede, leather, cable knit... this is just awesome!!

    I must admit I'm a little bit jealous of your lazy day... I haven't slept in for who knows how long & I really want a day to just lounge about the house!
