23



Dress - Missguided / Tights - Primark / Boots - Topshop
Necklace - Gogo Philip / Rings - Me & Zena

This is what I wore to celebrate my 23rd birthday on the 16th. I got this dress from Missguided. It is indecently short, quite possibly the shortest dress I own. Also its quite tight considering its M/L, so if you're ordering from their website always size up! I decided to get the orange one in an attempt to imitate my number one style icon/fave actress/girl crush Chloe Sevigny. This outfit is pretty different to her normal style but its always stuck in my head as one of her best looks. I wore my pair of Topshop Allegras with the dress. I bought these last week in Leeds before I had my hair done. They were the last pair of size 5s they had so I was ridiculously happy to get them. The girl who served me did that annoying thing of trying to get me to take out one of the Topshop cards to get the 15% discount. I asked her how much I would save so she worked it out on the till then after umming & ahhing about it I decided not the take the card but she left the discount on. Gotta love a sales assistant who just doesn't care haha.

I wasn't expecting to do anything on my birthday, infact I'd planned to just take Chloe to Eureka, the children's museum in Halifax. On my 21st I ended up walking around the railway museum in York so I figured I would carry on the tradition of going to shit museums on my birthday. Luckily I didn't have to. On Tuesday Andy bought me the ingredients to make a birthday fry up. I had to make it myself which was a bit of a pain but it was nice nonetheless. He also decided that a tub of Carte D'or was a satisfactory alternative to a birthday cake (wtf). He made up for it by taking me to Leeds to buy me a pressie. I chose a 100ml bottle of Flowerbomb which is something I'd asked for every birthday, Christmas, anniversary etc. since we've been together. Then he treated me to a meal at Yo Sushi. Japanese food is my fave so he did good, especially since they had some chocolate mochi on the belt. On Wednesday my mum and sister came up from London for the day. They brought me some more presents then we went for a meal at Eric's in Lindley. It was really good, I went for the rump steak sandwich and the best onion rings I've ever tasted. Not the most exciting birthday anyones ever had but it was nice anyway.
