FASHION | Birthday Celebrations

Top - Primark (old) | Skirt - Mango | Shoes - Topshop | Necklace - Etsy | Ring - Topshop

I'm sorry for yet more blurry selfies but I was in a huge rush and had no time to take proper photos. On Saturday night I went to Clapham with family and friends for my birthday meal at a Mexican and then we went for a drink afterwards. Had a really lovely night although I didn't get in til 4 so literally slept all day yesterday! 

The outfit was very last minute, I think you can tell by the mess behind me that I was having a bit of a dilemma. I was so tempted to stick to jeans but I thought that as you don't turn 21 every birthday I'd better make more of an effort (I even fake tanned haha!) I got the skirt from Mango via ASOS, it was an absolute steal at £11.50 as it's in the sale and I got an extra 15% off. It was a little big so my mum took it in a bit for me and now it fits perfectly. The shoes are also new, the heel is only tiny but that's all I can handle...and even then I had pins and needles in my feet all day afterwards!  

I promise in my next outfit post the pics won't be as lazy! Hope you had a fab weekend too.
