My Daily Outfit; Day Three

My Daily Outfit; Day Three

Another day, another adventure! 

We started our day off with the hotel breakfast, a great selection. The same everyday but always something new to try.

My outfit today:

Sunglasses: Juicy Couture

I am not normally a fan of Juicy, however these glasses were a bargain in TK MAXX and I loved the shape and emerald green inner rim. 

Playsuit: French Connection

This was another bargain bought on the FCUK outlet eBay store. Well worth a look if your a fan of the French brand but not the prices. I also bought this great sequin evening dress for a 3rdof the cost and new it was £3-400!

My favourite leggings: Mint Velvet

Leggings are a staple these days and easy to get hold of. I think it’s well worth paying a bit extra for a decent pair as they will last, keep you warmer and  show less of your VPL! These cost £15 and have a think waist band and slightly rouched ankles. They worked really well with the playsuit as its quite short and cheeky so they made the outfit more respectable.

My market bought scarf and rocket dog boots again. I really tried to pack and bring items I could wear with each outfit to keep my bag as light as possible and these two items did me very well. 

That cheeky Muubaa leather jacket finishes off the look and keeps me warm whilst stomping the streets. 


Lunch was at a brilliant little place called ‘Soup’. We ate for under €20 (about £14) and couldn’t have touched a bite more! Generous portions and tasty panini options meant we were satisfied till dinner. 

For the evening I wore my black jeans ASOS cutout boots, a Primarni vest with a crochet top which I found in a vintage shop near where I live. It was cold out so I popped on my Sainsbury’s jumper (!) and faux fur coat and off we went to another awesome eating establishment. This time, Ribs n Beer. The ONLY option for a big V like me was goats cheese salad with honey and pine nuts. I’m not going to complain as it was nice and we got chips and washed it down with local beer. It was one of those kind of meals where calories are welcomed to the party and enjoyed!

Anyone been up to anything fun this week or planning something for the neat future? Let me know in the comments and if you have blogged about it post the link too! I’d love to see! ❤

Angus’ Surprise Trip; My Daily Outfit

Angus’ Surprise Trip; My Daily Outfit

Day 1.  So it turns out planning and carrying out a surprise trip for someone is really hard! It’s easy to plan, fun.. Very fun! I have just found it so hard to keep it a secret from the boy in my life who I tell everything. In fact I did tell him by accident whilst he was pretending to listen to me.We are currently waiting in the Eurostar waiting room, so naturally he now has some idea! I love travelling by Eurostar. Having done it only once before Im not an experienced ES passenger but I have super fond memories of the family holiday which began with the (at the time) fresh new way to travel. I wasn’t disappointed this time around. The boarding process is much easier than the airport security bag searching scariness. The architecture of the building is nothing but stunning.

Once on board we travelled virtually the  whole way with only three others in the carriage. It was perfect! The seats are comfortable enough to snooze in and we enjoyed looking out the window (when we weren’t underground) at the urban  then rural views of London, France and then Belgium. Excuse Angus’ face? 😜Other than some train snacks to keep us going, I brought my drink of the moment and listened to my current audible book. I am only in the very early chapters so not enough to tell you yet.I thought it would be a fun idea to blog my outfits each day as I definitely have more fun with my style on holiday than I do during my normal working week. 

Outfit 1. To Travel 

From Head To Toe

Necklace; lilac – New Look. I love this colour which is surprisingly versatile. As its a pale colour it goes with most things. The shape of the drops are very pretty and feminine. Scarf – I bought this at a local market and its a one of a kind. It’s great cod it’s really light and obviously has a through colours so I can wear it with quite a few things. The fabric is ‘plumpable’ (nice made up word for you there!) and I wear it in various ways. I thought it matched well with the jumper and a scarf is great to have when travelling to conver to a small blanket, a pillow and/or an eye mask!

Top; black lace – Forever 21. You can’t really see it other than the sleeves poking out but I wore a nice peplum top. I knew the jumper would keep me warm and I wanted the lace to show to add a pretty and feminin edge. 

Jumper; purple – Sainsbury’s (in the sale! £9 It’s pure cotton to!) I can’t get onto the Sainsbury’s website from Belgium so I will look it up when im back. I love this jumper. I bought it in 2/3 sizes too big for days like today where I need comfort, style and warmth.

Jeans; black – Topshop. Old stock but really comfy and a staple of any wardrobe. 

Boots; black – Schuh. Currently reduced to £39.99. A real bargain! They are super comfortable and wearable with everything. Mine are a bit worn out now so I’m tempted to get a replacement pair as they’re in the sale. Though I am on the hunt for a nice new smart/casual ankle boot so watch this space. 

Jewellery- I then wore my usual Thomas Sabo watch but popped on this midi ring from Astrid & Miyu a long with my Zodiac ring with Virgo birthstones. I love these rings as they are so unusual, dainty and pretty. They come in nice packaging and you can get 10% off your first order online! 

Night Time

To take me from day to night I took off my scarf and jumper and put on my Faux  fur Lipsy jacket. I put on some red lippy and grabbed my little handbag. We were quite tired from travelling by this point so it was quick and easy – perfect!

We ate are a restaurant called Toms Diner. I would highly recommend it. I’m happy to do a seperate post review on it if you like. Let me know in the comments below.
