im a talented artist



top: primark
skirt: H&M
necklace: new look
rings: jwlry, market stall & H&M
nails: models own slate green & W7 crackle polish
excuse my receipt shoved in pocket!

Today I've been procrastinating at almost colossal levels. I've really done nothing but nap, frantically search for a tanning bed in my small town & eat a whole rotisserie chicken. I really need to get on with some university work but I cannot find the motivation! I've only got one more project to be finishing up and printing, but its proving the hardest to be motivated for! Le sigh! I do think I'll get it done but you know, its just one of those things that you just cant find the motivation to do!

I threw this outfit on earlier, I wanted to wear something sheer, without being too trashy. I kinda like the semi sheer, bra poking through look. I think a lot of the time when done right it can look so chic. When I was on tanning mission as mentioned above, the wind was blowing so hard I looked like a bat or superman with my caped top blowing in the wind. I thought it was hilarious so I had a good chuckle to myself.

PS. Just saying because any time in the past I've mentioned tanning beds, Please don't lecture me on the pro's and cons of tanning beds, I know they are bad for you, I don't use them regularly, I'm away on holiday in three weeks and I want to expose my skin to sun before going so I don't end up burnt to a crisp. I am an adult and can make a educated choice. 


PPS. Gone back to my old layout, because Im "supposed" to be redesigning the blog soon, however god knows how long this will take, like I said, procrastination expert!

  1. Love the outfit. Not trashy, but still has the same impact. And don't worry about being unproductive. So far my day consisted of reading magazines in my uni's beer garden with a massive plate of nachos and a jug of Pimms. Hmm, hmm....

  10. I agree about the bra poking through (esp now I've had a bra fitting so I'm wearing the right one!), my mom doesn't agree though ha. Great slouchy tee, looks very comfortable.

  12. Love the image of your running about crazed in search of UV light. TAN MEEEE. That's my mission for tomorrow although living in Glasgow i shouldn't have the same problem given that you can't move without passing a tanning shop!

  15. I love sheer tops, I don't think they look trashy at all, as long as you wear a black bra, lacey or plain and don't have a lot of cleavege. Also, your necklace is simply beautiful.

  25. Wow, definitely one of my favorite looks from you. The sheer black top is too perfect. So lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  26. everything is bad when you over use it. I use tanning beds 4 times a year: before New Year's Eve, before my B-day, before holiday and in the beggining of autumn and I don't think that's unhealthy using them like this. so go and treat your skin with bit of tan before holidays. :)

  27. Love Love Love Your Tee.
