Hello! So I had a pretty interesting day yesterday. As we all know it was Valentines Day and while most boys take their girlfriends out for a nice dinner, I was taken to a hardcore show in a tiny venue in Kingston. Ah, the romance. Luckily the band we were watching was one of my favourites of the recent months, Polar who are an incredible five-piece from Guildford. My boyfriend Josh knows them pretty well (he's seen them 17 times!) so I managed to get the opportunity to photograph the show which made me super stoked. The shots turned out awesome and I had a great night, so thumbs up really! I chose to wear my beloved Hearts & Bows oversized shirt open over a white vest to give my outfit some Kurt Cobain realness, then layered it with my Topshop leather jacket. On my bottom half I just wore Levis shorts with tights and then added my gorgeous white Dr Martens to brighten up the look. I love this outfit, it's super comfortable but (hopefully) looks really cool. On my lips is MAC'S 'Amorous' which I bought off my sister recently (cheers beb ;)) and almost completely matches the burgundy sections of my shirt. 

I'm off to the gym in a bit - I got a tad carried away with the chocolate and consumed a whole box last night courtesy of my boyfriend. I then - after complaining about it - ate a Malteaster bunny. Well done, Cara. Really. I hope you all had a great Valentines Day, whether you're single OR in a relationship! xo
