Happy Thursday! Do you no what the best thing about Thursdays are? Its close to Friday. Which means we can pull out those weekend clothes again! Can I get a whoop whoop?

So last weekend me and the boy went to London ( I might have mentioned that . . .) for the weekend and thought it would be sensible to pack all our clothes and stuff into our rucksacks rather than taking unnessessary luggage which was great, if not a little annoying but it meant that comfy clothes and re mixable ones were key! During the day I wore this tunic like this and then in the evening I switched it up with my red heels and leggings.

Whats funny is I hardly wear my many pairs of converse these days but we took these pictures in my university campus and I used to always wear Converse to class! In fact I’m pretty sure if you asked anyone from my classes what my style was Converse would be mentioned! rocking them again was fun until I got killer cramp which has plagued me all week since but it was worth it for running round in something other than boots (walking or otherwise).

Whats your most comfortable about town shoe? And if you’re a bigger footed lady like myself where do you love for great priced but supportive shoes that don’t look like you’ve stolen your grandmothers orthopedics*. Or that they have made a comeback from the nineties . . . I hate that.

*my grandmothers would like to add that they don’t in fact wear orthopedic shoes. these are the type of offending shoe I was thinking of . . . *shudders* pale peach what?!?

This weekend marks 4 years of Josh putting up with me. Its pretty monumental.

So to celebrate we are going into London and have a date weekend. This one is all about doing everything we love but can’t fit in on a regular weekend. No errands! So of course I’m taking him shopping.

The one drawback is because of check in times we need to carry most of our clothes all day for all of the two days. Therefore everything we’re bringing needs to fit into a rucksack. Not an easy task when you’re a constant over packer.

So I have undertaken some rules to help. Which are:

  • Stick to three colours
  • Everything has to be remix-able with one another
  • and it has to fit into a small rucksack.

I am happy to report that this has worked and I may or may not have bought two new things just for the occasion. Opps, thats the part I don’t advise. Its not always budget friendly buying new clothes but it is our anniversary . . . so I’m letting myself off.
