With No Charge On My Phone, In The East End Of London

As you read this, I'm actually on my way to London (ok, well I'm in my Tort Law lecture *right* this second, but I'll be leaving shortly) to see The Guy for the weekend. I haven't seen him for about 6 weeks so I'm quite looking forward to it. I really will be in the East End of London, but hopefully with some charge on my phone!

As is tradition when I'm in the city, I'm heading to Ministry of Sound for a Big Night Out. Roger Sanchez happens to be playing on Saturday, so I'm super looking forward to dancing myself stupid. Other than that, I really don't have too many exciting plans, it's just going to be nice to get away for a weekend and to see TG, and eat. There will probably be a lot of eating, because, well, there always is! I blame TG, he's a bad influence...

In the mean time, I'll leave you with what I'm wearing for aforementioned Tort lecture and the journey down. It's a "happy clothes" outfit.

T-Shirt, Hero and Cape
High Waisted Trousers, Topshop
Cardigan, H&M

Oh I know, "happy clothes" sounds ridiculous. But these are. I do love this t-shirt and people always ask me about it when I wear it, and as for the trousers, well.... You know those items you have in your wardrobe, that almost, almost fit, but not quite? And you can't quite bring yourself to try them on, but neither can you bring yourself to chuck them out either? These trousers are that item, or they were. That makes me happy.

I got steely with myself over the weekend and made myself try them on under the assumption that there's no way they'd fit and it was time to finally get rid. Past my hips.... so far so good. Buttons done up... not overly restrictive to breathing, limited bulging over the top of them. Zip to the top... they're not stretched too much across the hip and I can get my hands into the pockets. Look down... and realise they fit!

These are dead simple, high waisted black trousers, they were about £10 in a Topshop sale 3-5 years ago, they're comfy and best of all I reckon they're rather flattering. I feel almost tall and slim and column like...

Trousers, Topshop
I'm pleased to have gained these back, they're super useful for either the office or for uni days or anything else, and they're not jeans, just for a change.

And you can't round off Happy Clothes without Happy Jewellery. Keeping it simple today...

Right, I'll be back for what I'm now calling Legal Monday, but in the mean time, fun, food and TG beckon, so hasta luego. Enjoy your weekends!

My friend is currently studying for a law qualification through ILEX and we always have a chuckle at the law of tort and call it 'the law of cake'. We are silly like that. Cute tshirt :)
