Todays post is both an outfit post and a lifestyle post. Last Friday was my little brothers birthday. So yesterday we went over the bridge to Bristol for lunch in Bristol with my grandparents. We went for lunch then to take their dog for a walk in a park near to the restaurant but I'm showing in the pictures in a random order because why not!

Coat: New Look
Skirt: New Look
Bag: New Look
These were the first photos my dad has taken with my DSLR and for my blog so I'm gonna blame him for my terrible facial expressions and bad hair haha! These are the only ones he took not quite understanding fashion blogs.
If you follow me on twitter (@afashionoddity) you may have seen I did a naughty on-line shop at New Look with an insane code that I saw on my timeline that was giving £15 off when you spent £15 or more on new season (usually these codes are 'when you spend £50 or more) so I managed to pick up this skirt, bag an another dress all for £9,99 I know its amazing. All through this winter I have wanted a skirt like this and one simialr but in darker tones sold out in the Jnauary sales so quickly but they re-released it a lilac for sping. I love it as I felt like Twiggy or Shrimpton wearing one of the first mini skirts. It's also so soft it even feels woollen I am obsessed.
I love this outfit especially with the turtle neck and winter coat I was so warm and it's a change from jeans that still felt comfy. I also think the bag (only £3) and necklace give it that extra touch for somewhere more formal.
For lunch we went to a little Italian called Ciao in Bristol near Southmead (I don't know the suburbs in Bristol too well to explain where) we have been before after visiting at the hospital as it's quite near. It's a lovely local business and such a great chef. The pizzas are insane very similar to those you get in Italy (so hard to find in the U.K) For starter my brother had the mussels pictured above and I had the bruschetta which was amazing then my main was this massive tuna, sweetcorn, red onion and mozzarella pizza and I requested to add some prawns too. It was amazing. So if you live in the Bristol area I really recommend Ciao as a brilliant change to the usual Italians like Ask, Prezzo and Pizza Express (all of which I'm obsessed with but sometimes it's nice to go a family business and somewhere a bit more personal right?)
Just a few adorable snaps of my grandparents' dog Bertie I took in the park after our meal. I hope you enjoyed this mix or fashion and lifestyle in a post.
P.S - I have just hit 400 followers on bloglovin as I am writing this post and I cant believe it, thank you so much those of you who do follow. It means so much and I am so happy. (I know have done a giveaway the last few times I hit milestone at 100, 200 and 300 I think but I am going to wait till 500 this time as that is such a milestone.)
Thank you x
