Shopaholic does Liverpool

Must stop spending money....

I have this ridiculous need to buy a new outfit every time I go out or away for a weekend. Given I spend approximately 52 weekends a year either out or away, that's a lot of spending. My wardrobe and drawers are groaning under the strain. No more spending (she says having just bought 2 pairs of trousers and 3 pairs of shoes today!).

This top was ridiculously expensive, but I couldn't stop thinking about it. I added it to my bag several times and decided it was too much, but in the end, I lost the battle and bought it for a weekend away to visit one of my bestie's in Liverpool.

I love Liverpool, but I always feel so ridiculously under dressed when I go out there (hence I can justify buying this top). The women are all so glamorous and look amazing and since I pretty much live in my jeans, well it's a struggle. Plus the hair - how do they get that amazing curly blow dry thing going on? This is as close as I get to it... 

The top is by Carmakoma from ASOS and comes with a camisole for modesty (I don't do modesty). The sleeves are a really good length, plus the top covers the top of my jeans which stops my revealing my builders bum whenever I sit down. It also has a lovely pearl detail on the chest area which seems to draw the eye to my boobs, but I can live with that. I'll be wearing this a lot since it is probably one of the most expensive tops I've ever bought. (I had better anyway)

Excuse the dodgy pub toilet shots. I totally forgot to get my hubby to snap some photos before we went out and by the time I got home - well I was not photo worthy :)
