I feel old. I can no longer go out and party until the early hours, and at the ripe old age of twenty-one I feel as though I am a middle aged woman who just wants to sit in on a Saturday night with a takeaway in front of the telly. However, yet again last night I pulled out my dancing shoes and headed to my local town for a few drinks and a much-needed catch up with friends I've not seen in ages. (Admittedly my boyfriend picked me up at midnight, but that's besides the point!)
I guess my favourite thing about going out with friends, apart from having a good laugh of course, is that I get the chance to get glammed up in all my pretty party clothes. I have a wardrobe filled with the stuff from dresses to crop-tops to skirts to heels, but this time I opted for something a little different - leggings!
I haven't worn leggings on a night out since the days where I thought I was extremely cool sneaking into bars at the age of sixteen teamed with a variety of horrendous tops from Jane Norman, but it was actually a really nice change, and these ones from Topshop are just beautiful! I love the quirky paisley pattern and I think they will become one of my favourite summer staples. I teamed with my favourite white laced crop, also from Topshop, and my new stunning heels from River Island which I had for my birthday and haven't had the chance to wear yet!
It was actually really lovely to go out and get glammed up to see friends. I think sometimes I put pressure on myself because I want to do my best when it comes to university so I feel guilty for going out, but I need to remember that it's fine to let my hair down every once in a while!
