Spotty Trousers - Primark, Bag - ASOS, Shoes, T-Shirt and Coat - Topshop
I thought I'd separate my rumble ramblings into section so you can pick and chose rather than have to read bits you don't want too. So, let the ramblings commence...
The clothes bit...
Spotty trousers for a fiver - a bit hard to resist. I got these from Primark, there was a big rail left so I'm sure they are in some stores. Secondly, the oversized t-shirt from Topshop is my new fave as the cut/fit make it easy to not make much effort and kind of look acceptable. I also wore a grey beanie hat (from men's H&M wear due to my unusually large head) which hasn't left my head since purchase.
The X Factor bit....
'Shave my head and call me Duncan'. These were my boyfriend's words when Chris Maloney got his spot in the semi-final. His names not Duncan, it's Gary and he spends longer than me than on his hair each morning. I'm happy whoever gets through, got to love the drama of it and I always quickly pop into the shop at work to see which contestant has made the front page of The Sun each Monday. It's 2 weeks until the final - I'm going to have to find something to replace the X shaped hole in my life...
Hope you're weekend was just lovely!

Dress - Urban Outfitters, Boots - New Look, Bag - ASOS
I had a bloomin amazing long weekend in Madrid that was made even better by this beauty of a dress from Urban Outfitters that I got for my birthday a few weeks ago. It reminds me of a Calvin Klein kinda dress if you will - it's simple but the cut and material make it feel just lavely. I've also loved this bag from ASOS for a while and after almost 60 days in my 'Saved Basket' I took the plunge and parted with my £28. I've only got about 498 other things in my ASOS basket now. Home-made Christmas gifts for the family this year...?

Coat, Dress, Shoes, Shirt - Topshop, Bag - H&M
This was my 'easily changible' outfit for my shopping trip on Saturday. It was bustling and crazy at Cabot Circus in Bristol and I loved it. The Primark there is huge. I could have spent a lot of money in there but I always feel that if I spend loads in Primark I have kind of defeated the object of the cheap shopping that I had intended to do upon entering the shop.
On an exciting, fashiony (a new word for you there) note - a friend of mine who is very talented (and annoyingly good looking so feel free to dislike her a little bit) has started selling Bow Ties on ASOS Marketplace and they are looking good so definitely check them out here. I am still changing my mind over which one I'm going to purchase but watch this space as I am sure a beautiful bow tie will feature soon...

Coat, Shoes & T-shirt - Topshop, Shirt - Primark, Disco dupes - River Island, Bag - Charity Shop
I can't believe it's Sunday already. I am convinced weekend hours go faster than week hours. I went on a shopping day yesterday. I am pretty bad at shopping - I find it difficult to make my first purchase but once I have it's all downhill for my debit card and all uphill for my wardrobe. I am on ASOS now trying to resist spending more money.
Today's pictures contain some of my most recent purchases. The shirt (underneath the t-shirt) is from Primark. It was £8 but I am hoping to get a lot of wear from it since I love the collar detailing so much. I sometimes things from Primark look better outside of the shop than in the shop! The grey t-shirt is from Topshop, it's pretty minimal but the material feels fairly thick and the rolled up sleeves are a nice addition to the 'laid back' feel. I tried on the American Apparel Disco Pants yesterday. Unfortunately my legs aren't long enough and didn't look how I'd hoped they would - I still love them and think they look great on everyone. I got the dupes from River Island which I don't think are as thick but they don't feel too restrictive. The main reason I went with the dupes was because they did short, regular and long versions - I went with the short! The price tag was a lot easier on the eye at £30 rather than £74. I'll let you know how I get on with them!

Shoes & Dress - Urban Outfitters, Coat - Topshop

On to today's clothes. I got this top from H&M for my birthday and I love it - I think the dotty sleeves make it look more expensive than the £12.99 it is. I've got it in navy blue as well which I have got a lot of wear from. The nail varnish is Nails Inc but I got it free with Glamour magazine - they are offering four colours, tempted to buy Glamour 4 times to get all colours..!
