If you’re wondering why it’s been a little quiet round here, that’s because I’ve been in Manchester for the last few days with Dan, staying in a lovely hotel for a little getaway. The main reason for the trip was to go and see Beyonce on Wednesday night and oh my goodness she was absolutely amazing! I was devastated to miss her last two shows (when she came to Manchester not once, but twice in the space of a few months) due to my lack of money, so to finally see her live was so good. She is an absolute star and hands down the best performer and entertainer in my opinion. Mega girl crush! Then yesterday we hit the shops of Manchester for a spot of retail therapy, and this is what I wore! Cue some snaps taken in bad hotel room lighting…

Blouse – F&F*

Skirt – Ark*

Tights – TU

Boots – Topshop

I love the blouse so much. The pictures really don’t do it justice, but it’s covered in gorgeous delicate beading detail that is so pretty. I really like the contrast between that and the grungy acid wash denim skater skirt for an edgy twist. I’m really liking the skater shape at the minute as I feel it’s flattering for my shape and really nips you in at the waist to create subtle curves. Note that the rights are back too since the rain returned! I’m off on a little camping trip in the Lake District tomorrow so I’m praying the weather gets better because I don’t fancy resembling a drowned rat all weekend! 

What have you all been up to this week? Did any of you see Beyonce?

      Hi Zoe! Yep that's the one! It is a lot bluer in real life! I wear mine with the zip at the back rather than the side, hence why mine has a seam down the front. Personally I think it sits better like that! x
