Ain't nothing like a bit of retail therapy...

31 March 2010

Yesterday I handed in 2 assignments and then left university at 6.30pm. After 10 full days spent at uni (including saturday and sunday) a stop at the shops was definitely needed.

I also picked up a red cardigan today when I was shopping with my mom. I've wanted a red cardigan/jacket for a long time and found this one in River Island.

As soon as this photo was taken, it started raining and I had to retreat indoors. This was the pink outfit that I decided to splurge on last night. Plus I couldn't go wrong with a gift card that I hadn't spent yet (shocker I know!) which was courtesy of Aussie. The skirt is actually almost coral coloured but the photo couldn't capture the colour...maybe next time.
Pink and Denim
Denim Jacket (ASOS) Top, skirt and shoes (Topshop) Belt (H&M)
This is what I'm wearing right now which is a combination of some of my new things.

Probably same again this time next month as I have 2 more assignments due and revision for exams! For now though, I am taking the next few days off but first, a celebratory end-of-term hot pot dinner with friends!
Right, gotta run!

  9. Retail therapy is always justified after working hard at uni.
    Love the red cardi. I think bright cardis are so much better than light ones!
    That pink outfit is one of my favourite of yours. You look gorgeous and the colour is definitely making me think of Summer.
