Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids



Plaid shirt: H&M // Skirt: Topshop // Rocket Dog Satire Western boots: Barratts*

Wearing this plaid shirt and western boots together did make me feel a little bit like a cowgirl, but then I was going round to a friends for a fajita night so it was pretty fitting I think? I recently bought this shirt from H&M and it's a really good length so can be worn with jeans, leggings or a skirt - I love a good multi-use item! It's my first dive into the whole tartan/plaid trend so far, but I think I'm definitely going to be trying more. I've got my eye on a pair of River Island red tartan leggings, I'm just worried about what shoes and jacket I'd wear with them!

These Rocket Dog boots are so comfy, they have a rubber base to the heels so when you walk you kind of bounce rather than clip-clop along... it's great (I'm easily pleased)! It's also good to have an alternative to my trusty Topshop boots, featured in most of my dress/skirt outfit posts, which are starting to get a bit tatty now. I've worn them in too many grubby bars and clubs, they need a bit of a clean! I love how ankle boots can be dressed down with jeans or daytime and worn with dresses and skirts for a slightly dressier look. This Rocket Dog pair is no exception, with a little nod to the cowboy style. 

It's nearly Friday guys, the working week is nearly over! I'm off to Southampton tomorrow evening after work, to meet up with some of Josh's friends and then go to his sister's engagement party on Saturday night. It's so exciting that they're engaged! :) What are you up to this weekend? x
