I have never been a confident bunny when it comes to fashion and choosing what to wear daily. I am usually just a hoodie, printed tee and leggings kind of girl however I am really wanting to show off this piece which has boosted my confidence on quite a number of occasions.

I found the checked cropped top in New Look when the student loan arrived in our bank accounts last month and I just had to pick it up. I fell in love with it more or less straight away and can’t stop wearing it! I love how the peach/orange toned squares just give it more of a unique feel and adds a bit of colour to a monochrome look. Pair it with your favourite jeans and boots and your good to go I reckon. The bag is from Accessorize and is perfect for fitting all my university books in. It does get a bit heavy at times so having the strap to put over the shoulder is really helpful.

 Now on to accessories, I think this necklace fits perfectly with the outfit! It really brings out the peach tones of the top and the gems just add something a bit different to your usual statement necklace. I was lucky enough to receive this when I went to the Candy Rocks Event in September last year. My other statement piece is my much loved Thomas Sabo bracelet. For Christmas, I received the snowflake charm from Phill as part of our first Christmas together. Such a cute idea!

After taking outfit photos in the freezing cold, Alice and I went for a bit of lunch at Tea In The Park in Whitley Bay. It’s a really cute cafe part of Thorntons. I had a lovely hot chocolate with marshmallows and a veggie panini which tasted delicious. Overall I really enjoy my day with Alice and hope we can do it sometime again soon.

Have you been anywhere nice lately with any bloggers?
