A Touch of Neon


Shirt - School Shirt / Jumper - River Island / Necklace - River Island / Jamie Jeans - Topshop / Vectra Shoes - Topshop 

I'm fitting in this outfit post around learning French orals, typing up geography controlled assessment, doing maths homework, revising ICT and chemistry and preparing Spanish and English controlled assessments. Oh the joys of being in year 12 (year 11 to you English readers). I've only been back for a month and I'm already drowning in work and falling victim to procastination. I blame Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr... need I go on? I really need to get my act together so I can actually pass my GCSEs, gulp.

Today, I had a lovely meal out with my mum at The Canteen at The MAC Theatre in Belfast. It's Belfast Restaurant Week right now meaning lots of top restaurants in the city have some great deals right now so if you're in Belfast make sure to check them out! I was feeling super self conscious in this jumper feeling like every single person in Belfast was judging me. I'd feel fine if I was in London, just because everyone here dresses in an obligatory uniform of a tacky crop top, leggings and and Vans/Converse, they don't appreciate real fashion! 

Other than feeling like a giant neon banana (think I heard someone on the bus refer to me as Spongebob Squarepants, Belfast is a wonderful place right?), this is the softest jumper EVER! I had a gift card and a 25% off voucher from ELLE Magazine so on Thursday I went out on a shopping spree in River Island. I couldn't really find anything nice in the Belfast store, despite seeing loads of nice stuff on the website, so I was struggling to find something nice! However this neon jumper stood out to me like WOW, so I felt I needed it. Also on my shopping spree I bought the chain necklace I'm wearing as I've been wanting one for AGES but never seen a nice one, so I had to pick it up!
