This was yesterday's outfit, I wore my new parka as well as this Topshop slip dress I got from my parents for my birthday. My mum knew I really liked it so she'd trawled through quite a few Topshop's to find it! I layered it with a brown cardigan that's just been sitting in my wardrobe for about 2 years now that I've barely worn. I thought the different shades of cream, brown and khaki worked really well together.
I think this parka will be an ideal cover-up for when I go to Leeds Festival this summer, as it wasn't too expensive and I think it will suit a muddy, drunken festival a lot better than a £65 one from Topshop! I was a bit miffed when I found out the line-up for Leeds and Reading this year, some year's it's been really good with bands like Metallica and Rage Against The Machine or Kings Of Leon, but whenever there has been a good line-up I've never been able to go for the whole weekend. So I finally get a weekend ticket and the line-up is really pretty poor. Out of the headliners, I'd only really go see Guns N' Roses, mainly for the amusement factor though. They were an okay band once upon a time, but now it's basically just Axl Rose prancing about being a great big diva, which, although funny, doesn't exactly make great live music. I probably should be going to Download Festival this year, as they've got the likes of AC/DC and Aerosmith and it's generally a better festival but the friends aren't into that sort of music, so Leeds it is!

Oh, and I also thought I'd show you the watch I got for my birthday from my parents. It's Marc by Marc Jacobs and I love it because it's more of a cuff than a watch and it goes with all my jewellery really well.
