"Lying on a fake beach, you'll never get a tan..." So, I'm totally and utterly obsessed with Marina and the Diamonds at the moment. Her broken, crazy girl personas and lyrics really work for me at the moment as I'm not gonna lie, going slightly insane under the pressure of starting a brand new life! I thought I'd call this outfit Date Day but I thought the opening line to Radioactive would be far more intriguing. This outfit was meant to be for a date night with James but it actually ended up being more of date afternoon. It was on a Sunday when normally we'd visit my dad but the jammy man was away in Amsterdam leaving me and James with a whole day to ourselves, something that has not happened for the longest time. I literally think last time we had a whole day together without one of us needing to go to work was when I sneaked away to Aberystwyth way back in April. So, obviously, we had to make use of it. With the cold, evil weather we are having at the moment, a proper adventure was off the cards so we fell back on our failsafe of cinema and a meal. The film we went to see was 47 Ronin which was really interesting. I know so little about Japanese history but it seems very intriguing. If only they didn't teach the World Wars one after the other in school and added a bit of Japanese history in. That would be so much better. Afterwards we shared a chicken at Nando's which is my new favourite thing to do. I can never finish my meal at Nando's so if I share a chicken with someone, they can finish what I can't, genius. As I was feeling especially generous, I actually gave a piece of my precious halloumi to James. Hope he knows how lucky he is...;)

As for my actual outfit. Well, it's strange. Looking back at it in photos now, I'm not sure I like it as much as I thought I did! It could be the way awkward way I've managed to pose in every single photo, but I suspect it's the black tights and boots upsetting me too. I think remove the tights, add some different shoes and some better weather and I'm onto a winner here. I think one of the things I do like about this outfit however is that I actually experimented with my jewellery. I have a lot of jewellery I got at Leeds Blogger Meet which I've yet to wear and I actually managed to put some on for this occasion. Sadly I've lost my info which tells me where these pieces actually came from, so sorry about that. I think the green beads and star bracelet is so cute. 

What do you think? Ditch the tights?
