casually dressed






top: primark
skirt: H&M
rings: jwlry (30% off using BYEBYE)
nails: galaxy nails (see post here)
belt: primark

Apologies for lack of blogging the last two days, some people care, some people don't so I'll just say it anyway. I went to Acton Scott working farm and Chester Zoo which were both really good. Chester Zoo is highly recommended, was so tired from walking round and cooing over all the cute animals, but very worth it! Went out to the Wine bar with my friends last night and let off some much needed steam with a few large glasses of wine. Been feeling really stressed out the last week as I've been working so hard on a few work related projects. Looking forward to the next month ahead as its totally going to be hectic, more wine is needed. 3 bottles for £10? Yes Please.

In a strange choice I decided to wear a brown belt even though black would have been the obvious choice. I just think I like how the purpley blue top & black contrasts so well against brown. Got on the blogger sideways cross thing (anything Laura talks about becomes a thing!), even though I think its a bit over now! I much prefer this oversized chunky one, I don't really do delicate! There is a better photo of my galaxy nails and a link to the tutorial and polishes I used on my other blog.

  20. I love the brown belt, i think it looks a lot nicer than a black belt would. Also love the top, I think I can just about see a peter pan collar, and I'm a sucker to those!

  34. The nails are great, I really want that skirt - I have it in grey and pink but cannot get the black one!
    I might have a little look at the belts in primark tomorrow, I really need a plain brown one like that to go with a dress I bought.

    The jewellery in your shop is gorgeous but every ring I pick is either sold out or not available. I hope there'll be some more soon :)
