Personal Style Interview: Sarah

Sarah at one point sat in front of me in class and was a food prefect so our circle of friends could enjoy extra potatoes on certain days! Hahahah you can laugh but that was a big luxury! Sarah is very stylish  and it's an honor to have her on my blog. She is a mummy to an equally stylish baby boy.

 1. Outfit for a night out:   

The yellow peplum top and jeans. It’s comfortable; I don’t have to worry about my legs feeling coldJ).

2. For lounging around you throw on.
