When two becomes one...

Hey Lovelies!

I really didn't know what to call this post so I thought ' when in doubt, quote the Spice Girls.' Although this is a outfit post, I felt I'd be a bit boring if I just labelled this OOTD or OOTN cause this was a night outfit. I wore this on Thursday night when my boyfriend and I went for a meal with my boyfriend's Dad and Step-mum who had come to visit us for a couple of days. I always like to dress nicely when I go out and even though we were just going to for a meal in a nice country pub I wanted to look nice cause like I've said before you never know who you might bump into!

Lady in Black! Cheery colour Corrie
Also say hello to my boyfriend who you can see in the background!

But something that makes this outfit a little different to normal and where the Spice Girl title starts to make sense is the fact that I've used two tops to create one different looking top. Yes I realise that doesn't make much sense but basically the peter pan collar is on a H&M vest top that I have and I layered it underneath my Zara lace top to create a new look. I really like this and think you can't tell it's two tops together and I'll definitely be doing this to  my other tops as I have a thing about peter pan collars at the moment! This is also another outfit which is inspired by my current style crush Caroline Flack as she also loves her peter pan collars and shorts! I think my boyfriend doesn't know what to worry about more either my current obession with Caroline Flack or my infatuation with Harry Styles!


Peter Pan Collar Top: H&M
Lace Top: Zara
Shorts: Miss Selfridge
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Primark
Lipstick: Look Beauty Double Hit Lip in Pink Punch
Nails: Emerald City- Models Own

I think I should get more creative often as it makes your old clothes feel new again which is great for saving money! Do you ever adapt your clothes like this? Or by any chance know where I can get a vest top with a white peter pan collar to layer underneath tops?

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday evening, mine will be spent watching Xfactor and trying to find something to eat from the non existent food in our cupboards. As a snack I just ate a little travel sachet of Nutella with a spoon. I have reached a new low. Also I am recovering from shock after when waiting for my taxi to pick me up from work a seagull dropped a sausage on my leg! It had some force, I was like what was that?! Then they all stated to circulate around me, was a very scary moment I tell you!

Ooh also, also, I went to see Breaking Dawn on Thursday night/Friday morning and all I have to say is WOW. Seriously so intense, I almost bit through my finger at one point and started crying from about ten minutes in which my boyfriend found HILARIOUS. I won't ruin it for you all but there is one scene that has scarred me slightly. If you've read the books you'll probably know which one! Also I now definitely fancy Taylor Launter over Robert Pattinson. Sorry R-Patz but you've lost it.

 Have a lovely evening :)

  3. That's a really nice outfit! I agree with the bumping into someone part... Every time I leave the house looking just... blah, I'm terrified of bumping into my ex with his new girlfriend or something. :D Just kidding. :)

  8. So creative, I love that you put 2 tops together, to create one super top! :o)
    I think I know what bit you mean in Breaking Dawn, looking forward to seeing it also, but hoping that the buzz will die down slightly and I can see it in a quieter cinema where no one will judge me for gasping and oohing as and when I please. Is it sad that I'm slightly looking forward to the sex scene?! Any man that can break a bed like that is fine by me... but like you I'm much more of a Jacob girl ;o) lovely lip colour you have on BTW xx

  11. Completely agree with dressing up, even for dinner! Makes you feel better too I think!
    Good idea to mix up your tops and wear them togther, I sometimes wear dresses as tops with a longer skirt over them...

  14. You always make me laugh, I love your sense of humor! Poor R-Patz :P You look chic as usual! I was just thinking "I really like her top" and then turns out you MacGuyvered it, clever girl! I like the paperbag waist of the shorts, too. I hope you find some good food for your cupboard soon.
