TURTLES LOVE LEATHER

Hey everyone, looking forward to the weekend? You can start to wind down now, we're nearly there! I always kind of liked thursdays when i was younger, it meant that it was friday the next day and that you were so close to your freedom from school! Another thing as well, you don't realise how much free time you actually get at school. I mean lets be honest, no-one gave/gives their attention 100% all the time at school. Even if you enjoyed it and was one of the "good ones" there would of been the odd class you didn't enjoy so you'd chat to friends or get bored. As well, you finish earlier compared to jobs AND you always get your weekends. Depending on your work situation, you aren't always going to be fortunate enough to have your weekends to yourself. Not to even mention the holidays you get so many and the summer holidays are on average 6 weeks! Thats two more weeks than the average holiday time for a job over the WHOLE year. 

Needless to say, i am not looking forward to joining the working world. Don't get me wrong im sick of how much free time i have now and i feel useless. But you always miss what you don't have don't you? I know for a fact i will never get this much free time ever again in my life, but i also know that i will probably make more use of my free time when i'm working. Plus ill have the money then to actually leave my house... lol. It might be a bit different as i am planning (or trying to plan) to work for myself, i really want to set up my photography and start building my name up. I also have some exciting news for next year, but you will have to wait until then to find out! :P

This outfit is a bit similar to something i've worn before, but i don't really care if it is the same. We are allowed to re-use things in our wardrobes! Especially re-using outfits! I'm pretty certain that the blogging world paints a picture that we don't/can't re-use items or wear the same outfit again. As theres plenty of blogs where i know that i've seen an item never to be seen again (not judging anyone, i think its probably just because some people are lucky enough to have too many things in their wardrobe but we aren't all as lucky as that!). So i think this year i'm going to try my hardest to post more similar outfits, so that you can see how to re-style outfits/items and make them different to how you wore them before. I am on a bit of a spending ban, not because i spend too much, but because i want to have more use of my wardrobe. I want to really wear all the items and get as much use as i can out of them. As well as trying to show that you can do more with your wardrobe if you put your mind to it.

Today we went out to lunch with Chris' mum (we always pick her up after work and get a cheeky lunch) but i went for something quite light. Especially when i see the soup of the day was my favourite soup and it was one i liked! Tomatoe & basil soup with sauteed mushrooms, italian ham & mozerella on bruschetta. Ill be off cooking a lovely curry tonight! We have someone coming over for dinner so i need to show off my culinary skills ;)

OUTFIT DETAILS
I threw this together when i got up, as i was trying to rush out the door. I always opt for skinny jeans when i can't be bothered thinking. I decided to go for a black top instead of red. It was cold today so i paired it with my chunky cardigan and my huge leather trench for a darker twist. I love this jacket and i think it made the outfit look a bit more put together rather than thrown together. I always thought it actually made the outfit look a little more "chic" as well. I always want to add that i'm sorry i keep using this bag, but i'm so in love with it! Its so beautiful and i can't stop looking at it... LOL
