What I wore: Overdressed is better than underdressed, right?!

Hi all! How was your weekend? We had a three-day weekend (I call them Bank Holiday weekends as that's what they're called in the UK but no-one had a clue what I meant here! LOL).

The bf and I road-tripped it up to a place called New Plymouth. It took about 5-6 hours, including lunch stops. It was a beautiful, gorgeously scenic place but as we arrived quite late on Saturday afternoon (4.30pm) all of the shops were pretty much closed - it was raining so we couldn't go for a walk! So I ended up having a 2 hour 'nap' before waking at 7.30pm in a rush to get ready for some dinner and drinks. We found a fab bar / bistro and I had some lush cocktails, before the bf felt 'manflu' coming on so we went back to the hotel. He passed out on the bed and I sat reading for an hour with my night-light on. Rock AND roll!!

He managed to take one or two pics before passing out - I had to take the rest of them myself in the mirror! Ha!
Skirt, Matalan (seen here); Sequin blazer, New Look; Vest, Primark; Tights, Primark; Shoes, Matalan; Headband, Accessorize.

I'd been reading a magazine in the hairdresser about sequins being back in fashion and it reminded me that I had this jacket hanging in my wardrobe so I busted it out. I had no idea what New Plymouth was going to be like, but I always prefer to be overdressed than underdressed!

As I mentioned, on Friday I went to have some subtle highlights added to the tips of my hair. Cue awkward mirror photos to show you these tips!


What did you get up to this weekend? :)

  4. Love the highlights they look great on you! And I rather be overdressed everywhere I go than under dressed my family makes fun of me because I'll dress up even if it's just for the grocery store.

  15. Aww, this sounds like a nice weekend and eventhough the shops were closed because it was late in the afternoon, it's sounds like you had a nice relaxing time with your bf and your outfit is So cute. I love the skirt over the black tights and black heels. It's so chic, your subtle highlights are perfect too, very subtle and pretty.
