Outfits of the Weekend: Newcastle

This time last week I was enjoying a long weekend in Newcastle :)

After my usual going away fiasco...

1. Work out how many outfits are needed
2. Choose outfits/have a crisis(!)
3. Hang outfits on wardrobe and bedroom door
4. Give up on attempting to pack and leave 'til the last minute
5. Pack suitcase early hours of the morning, or on the day of leaving!
(Yes, I do this EVERY TIME!)

Queen of Overpacking :)

In my defence, half of this case was my sister's stuff :)

I wore the following outfits:

Thursday Night: Travelling up North after work

Love Alice in Wonderland :)

I did plan to wear black leggings...
 but I opted for something a lot more cosy :)

Yes, I went in the Services like this, styling :)
(No makeup, red face, eurgh! Didn't feel the need to put makeup on for a 5 hour nighttime journey!)

Faux leather jacket: Fave ever, New Look a couple of years ago!
Alice in Wonderland top: Urban Outfitters a year or so ago!
Lounge/PJ trousers: Primark, I love these too much.
Bag: Primark
Leopard pumps: Asda

Friday: Day out, sightseeing, riding the Metro to various locations, taking a nice ferry across the Tyne, followed by an evening Pizza Hut, walk around the City and a drink at the hotel bar :)
Nirvana jumper: H&M
Black tunic vest under: H&M
Black boots (Not shown in pic): Asda
and my beloved faux leather jacket and black Primark bag :)

Posing on a statue that had 1987, the year I was born on it :)
(Mum and Dad had to help me jump up on this, I'm short, the statue was tall next to me and it was so embarrassing, lol!)
