dress: topshop
belt: vintage
rings: superdrug (!!) and H&M


Really simple and basic outfit that I wore on Saturday. I would have posted this then but the internet said no. I love the little peaking out of the bra, Because its cute and a little daring without being slutty or pretty much naked! I've been wearing my hair up alot recently but don't usually keep it up all day, But this hot weather teamed with my mass of hair = sweaty neck syndrome! I was actually having a bit of a good hair day for a change too which was pleasant surprise!

I picked this leopard ring up from Superdrug for half price in their jewelery sale and was pleasantly surprised. I don't think I've ever looked at their rings and things until I saw the 1/2 price stickers on them! I love shopping outside the box and finding bits and bobs that you wouldn't normally find and 9 times out of 10 the nice stuff is cheap because who really goes into Superdrug to buy rings? I saw a very similar one in Accessorize for four times the price!

I'm supposed to be packing my bags as I type but I cannot be bothered. I keep wanting to do outfit posts and things but I keep telling myself to save it for when I'm back!

  4. I love a different and refreshing take on the black and white stripes. This time, your dress utilizes the alternating material/fabric - cotton and lace. The lace makes the usual color combi look above normal. Simple and sophisticated.

    Love the leopard, heart-shaped ring as well. The prim-and-proper dress contradicts that sexy messy hair but at the same time both go well together. :)

    Love your blog! One of your followers now :)

    I have the H&M ring, it's so pretty! However, in this heat, it makes my finger go green...

  10. Just look at you with your hair up, it looks swish! Love the dress, especially the lace detail, & the bra showing throw actually really works. Who says it's wrong to show a bit o' bra!
