Midget On Giant Steps.

Hello, happy Friday. Anyone going to watch the Olympic opening ceremony tonight? I wont lie I'm rather looking forward to it. I'm a sucker for fireworks and big dances and shit. I'll be watching it with a couple friends as we're having a girly night with popcorn as one of my friends is jetting off on Monday even though she only just got back from backpacking around Europe for a month. Crazy.


I met up with Ross in town on Sunday and wasn't it glorious? We bought some snacks and sat in the square where we spent the majority of the afternoon taking pictures of ourselves blowing bubbles with some 17p bubble gum. Long live Home Bargains!


Gosh don't I look short stood on those glorious steps. I'm utterly dwarfed by the massive gates behind me. But hey they say good things come in small packages. I'm sporting my new shorts that I got from Topshop when I finally spent a voucher that I got for my birthday. I very rarely buy anything from Topshop as I just think it's so overpriced for what it is so I was pretty indecisive about what to spend my voucher on. I happened to pop in when there was a sale on and found these pretty shorts in my size for only 15 quid so I snapped them up before anyone else did.

Top: Primark 
Shorts: Topshop
Waistcoat: So God Damn Old
Shoes: Converse
Bag: Topman

I'll admit the colours in this outfit are far more wintery than you'd expect in the recent weather we've been having, but I'm just not really a summery person. The majority of my wardrobe consists of blacks and blues and purples. And jumpers, a hell of a lot of jumpers. Considering my wintery wardrobe I reckon I've coped alright in these sporadic summer spells that have graced the UK this year.

*Ross said this lady was dressed better than me*


Here's a close up of my bum that Ross thought would be funny to take, though you can see the detail of the floral pattern so I included it anyway. Boys eh?
 

Anyway, I'm off to feed the boyfriend and my brother before they start turning ugly. I'm thinking a chilli con carne might go down well.

Here's a bit of Muse to warm you up for the Olympics:


Because I am so excited.
