so tonight I have a date (scared face), I met a guy at my friends engagement party last Saturday, actually it was in the bar after the engagement party, just to make it sound even more desperate, he he! And we got on, after much flirting he took my number and asked if I was free the following weekend, obviously I said yes. He text me a couple of times before confirming our date; Friday 20th September, 8pm, Putney – just to make it even more scarier. I’ve never been to Putney, pathetic I know from a 27 year singleton!
So WHAT TO WEAR?? (another scared face.)
Tuesday lunchtime I popped into H&M and had a browse (I’m getting so much better at disabling the “buy everything straight away and be poor for the rest of the month” reflex) and came across a cute jumper (I’ve been looking into differing jumpers considering the weather changed overnight from boiling hot to monsoon and freezindom) but nothing was really catching my eye at the amounts they were being sold for. However, the one in Hennies was £9.99 and the fluffy type that’s everywhere at the moment, and which I hoped would look cute but casu (casual), sold! Right next to it was a lovely cream, sleevless blouse with gold studs around the collar (I have one in Khaki) also at £9.99, not for the date but either for another night or even work! So to the till and just to make it all even better the store was having some secret promotion, which took off £5 = £15 for a jumper and a blouse – brilliant!
BUT then today, D-day, I went into New Look to look for a big chunky necklace to go over my jumper and ended up spending £62.95 – oops! Maybe not getting better at that whole reflex thing after all! But I did well to be fair, I got:
A chunky gold necklace – £5.99
A set of 5 midi rings – £3.99
A really cool chunky lion head gold bracelet – £6.99
A dark green blouse – £17.99
AND some cute lil’ tan ankle boots – £27.99 , which look pretty good quality me thinks?!
