Had a lush day with one of my best friends, Hannah today. We went to Pizza Express, had Starbucks and topped the day off with a sly drink in the wine bar. Nothing better on a lovely day like today. The weathers been just right! My throat is still bad but the copious amounts of painkillers I've taken are probably numbing the pain a little. Started taking some antibiotics for it too so fingers crossed it will be gone!

In Love with fashion is a brand I've been aware of for a while. I had a look at their stuff in the Oxford Street Topshop, and was impressed. Im one of those people that like simple dresses in a variety of colours and styles. The dress I picked is like a greyish cream colour which I really like. I was going to send this dress back as the zip is a little stiff but I do really like it so decided to just have to force my Mum to do my dress up for me anytime I wear it in the future! On my ETC LLYMLRS blog I've posted a little giveaway for the other item I was sent but unfortunately it doesn't suit me so I figure I'll give it away to you guys. More information on the other blog!

I wore my Allegera boots as well today, like pretty much every single day, they are getting so scuffed. Usual speil when I talk about shoes but I always wear the same shoes most days hence why I don't post them!

  3. I was going to buy the blue version of this from Topshop for a christening but it was slightly out of my price range! It looks lovely in the cream!

  15. I love the Allegera boots, they're gorgeous but sold out in my size in store and not on the website anymore.
    I love the black suede Chelsea boots instead though, I'd probably find myself walking around barefoot if I wore the Allegera boots all day!

    The necklace is gorgeous aswell, not the usual Primark style at all!

  34. I love the skirt you're giving away on ETC and I recently bought a cream coloured on from Miss Selfridge after seeing a style pic from the Eyeko site. I thought that the girl wearing it looked so cool, so i bought it - and i had never looked so short and stumpy (more so than usual!) They're such lovely skirts though, but the last thing i want is to look even shorter than I already am! (i'm a total midget. only 5ft. I'm sure i've shrunk!) x

  64. Found similar boots to those while thrifting, except of course they're going to have more of a 90's bulky feel to them
