dress: new look
jacket: primark (old)
necklace: primark
rings: jwlry (30% off using BYEBYE)

When in doubt where white & a leather jacket. Always a simple but awesome combo, probably my favourite go to when I don't know what to wear. I got this dress purely to wear on hoiday, maybe the cut-outs are a bit risque but I dont care. It only occoured to me today I dont own any simple vests for occasions like this! Must stock up on basics next time I have some money!

Was running out of light so just a few snaps for today. Changed into my PJ's now and snuggled into bed, My throats all better now but I now have sinus pressure & a head cold, really cant win at the moment. I hope everyone is well and having a good Saturday. The rest of mine will be me moping over not seeing The Strokes at Reading & Leeds festival and finishing reading Looking For Alaska. I have so much love for John Green, I wish he was my husband.

  36. I am in LOVE with that dress, don't think New Look sell it any more but it is so pretty, I've seen so many people wearing it.

    Sorry to hear about the sinus pressure, I suffer from that sometimes after a really bad cold, it really is very uncomfortable. Take lots of Sudafed and have lots of rest.

  43. Loving the leather jacket! Think the nails & jacket go brilliantly together!x

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh my gosh, I totally feel you. Not seeing the Strokes is really bad!! Imagine, Julian Casablancas in a leather jacket... Swoon!
    But, Looking for Alaska totally makes up for that, not? I read that book last summer and re-read it straight away. It is just fabulous. Go and read Papertowns as well, it was so great, too.

    Happy weekend. xoxo.

    ReplyDelete
