Just so I can learn the words.

I have to confess.  I have just bought Taylor Swift’s new album Red.  I can justify it though – I’ve bought tickets to take Poppy (yes for my daughter – not for me) to see her in April – and you can’t go and see a show without learning all the words can you?  And yes, I do love her new anthem/song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”.  You will see me quite happily, belting my lungs out to it in the carpool line.  Needless to say I’m very excited and I’m desperately trying to keep it a secret so I can surprise Poppy come April.

Tis freezing here in Atlanta today so it’s time for layers.  I started with the H&M t-shirt dress and layered the AllSaints Godiva jumper on top.  The black jeans are Gap from a while ago, and I’m wearing my Acne Pistols.  I am completely in love with these boots.

Before heading out I put on my Boden leopard print scarf from last year and Boden shrunken leather blazer from a couple of years ago.  I love this jacket even though most people complained about it being too short.

Off to get my headphones out to listen along to Taylor – must remember not to sing along in the office…:)

      Thank you – and after 2 wears the leather is blissfully soft – so worth the investment I have to say.

    Like the glasses – I wear glasses very badly – I do not have the kind of nose to hold up a pair of glasses and they have an annoying tendency to fall off when I bend down.

    I am teaching Ben and George the joys of Blur and head moshing to Song 2.

      Have just started wearing mine more often – I am blind without them but contacts have started to irritate my eyes through the day – so I invested in som good frames. I love wearing them – just struggle seeing to put my make up on in the morning – have to be VERY close to the mirror when I don’t have contacts in! Re-discovered the pleasures of Blur recently…still not sure who I prefer listening to between them and Oasis – all very nostalgic these days.

    Those boots are just such a great colour. Taylor Swift seems a sweetie and can do no wrong. I sometimes think my 11 year old daughter has more sophisticated music tastes than I – I am happy to sing along with the top ten.

      I love the color too – so versatile – it’s like a grey/taupe. I was a bit worried about Taylor’s songs of love and heartbreak being a bit too grown up for an almost 7 year old but I don’t remember analyzing lyrics when I sang along to Top of the Pops so I think we’ll be fine:) She loves Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson – her favorite though right now is Raise Your Glass covered by the Glee Warblers:)
