Tweed Shorts

quite quaint topshop shorts vintage bagI've been pretty busy lately, on Monday I started a 3 month internship doing graphic design for television, sounds good, but it's unpaid! hah, I know I'm a complete mug, but oh well. So as well as working Monday - Friday 9-5, I'm also still working 20 hours a week at the restaurant to try and earn some money! So that
leaves little time for blogging unfortunately. It was my 23rd birthday on Saturday, but the less said about that the better!

Cardigan: Primark  |  Shorts: Topshop  |  Shoes: M&S  |  Bag: Vintage  |  Shirt: H&M

  5. i prefer the m&s shoesie, I can't believe what wonderful shoes they have had in there lately! I must pop in far more.
    Happy birthday for the weekend. It was my 20th yesterday. It feels so weird to say I am in my 20s! Eeek xx

  6. I like the M&S ones, they have really good shoes!

  7. Happy belated birthday! What a birthday present! Ha. I think if you have any doubts to go with the cheaper one. I get the same way, I ask for something pricey then I feel like I shouldn't have it when I do. In a way I prefer the M&S ones. They seems a little more practical.

  11. Happy belated birthday! I celebrated my 23rd on Sunday :) I love the Carvela wedges, I'm sure I've seen similar ones in New Look though if you're looking for something cheaper xx

  13. happy belated birthday!
    i have to admit that i prefer the kurt geiger ones - they're beautiful. the heel on the m&s ones ruin them for me :/

  14. happy belated birthday! gosh working fulltime and then 20 hours at the restaurant sounds harsh. the things graduates have to do these days eh! I think I prefer the carvela ones, the wedge is nicer, but eep, the price!

  15. KG ones are gorgeous.

    Happy belated birthday! x

    ReplyDelete
  16. I adore the first pair, they look so elegant, but still have that chunkiness. The M&S pair remind me of a science teacher... ha!

  21. I have to admit, I am a huge fan of the Carvela ones, despite the price tag. There's something about a stunning pair of shoes that is so worth it! Also, I really don't think the other ones are flattering. They make your feet look a lot bigger.

    Love Steph xox

  23. Happy belated birthday!
    I'm a huge fan of both of the pairs of shoes. I absolutely love Carvela ones, just not the price tag, and the M&S ones are lovely for the winter also, even if they aren't as spectacular as the KG heels.

  24. Happy belated birthday! I would definitely choose for the first ones!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Happy Birthday! I don't know..seems hard to pick. I love the first ones mainly because I don't have a pair of those:)) But I would have preferred them even higher. I would search for cheaper ones if your are not satisfied with the price.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like both and can't choose between em :3

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love your outfit! the bag is fab.
    As for the shoes, personally i'm a wedge fan so i prefer the KG ones but i don't know if they're worth the price :s
    new look have some black lace up wedges at the moment x

  28. I love the sheer blouse. You're too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  29. mmmm i i love the KG ones more x

    ReplyDelete
  30. aah you're still a wee whippersnapper! I like the M&S ones actually, think the heel is quite unusual and just chunky enough! x

    ReplyDelete
  31. Happy belated birthday! I think the KG shoes are gorgeous

    good luck deciding :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's been long since I don't take a look around your blog. The quality of the images keeps improving and your outfits are great!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cute outfit, I prefer the Kurt Geiger pair :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like the M&S pair but realllly don't like the heel. I'd say keep shopping around a bit, or just get the Carvela ones, if it's a birthday present!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm in favor of the wedges, they are wonderful!
    Happy Birthday!

    Chic on the Cheap

  47. Hi! I'm a new follower, found you via bloglovin' and I've got to say you are fast taking the position of my favourite blog. I absolutely love your style! :-) I like everything about this look but especially the Carvela wedges and that vintage bag is to die for. Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the outfit, and I prefer the shoes from M&S, who would have thought you get such gems from there?! Happy belated birthday!

  50. this is way after the fact, and you've probably decided! but i have the M&S pair. i bought them a few weeks ago and wear them at any opportunity - i love their desert boot feel but they are also just so comfy and stylish.

    let me know what you decided?
    and hope the internship is going well, i know how tough it is!

  51. Ooh, I'd say the Marks and Sparks pair, they're gorgeous. I don't know what it is about them but, even without the wedge heel, they just look much more attractive...

    Anyway, Happy Belated Birthday! x

  52. happy birthday!
    that purse is gorgeous!

  53. Lovely outfit m'dear - your vintage bag is adorable!
    Good luck with the internship & happy ever-so-belated birthday ;)

  54. Lovely outfit. I must say that I prefer the Kurt Geiger ones! My friend works at Kurt Geiger, so she always gets free shoes, and 30% or more off. Very unfair!
    Good luck with the internship. I can understand how annoying it is that it's unpaid. Some people don't realise not everyone relies on their parents to support them through internships! xx
