what i wore

dress: topshop
jacket: primark
scarf: river island
necklace: asos*
hat: H&M
shoes: topshop
rings: market stall, jwlry, love hearts and crosses*
nails: aa nails poppy red*, barry m strawberry ice cream* and wah x models own nailpen*

This is what I wore on Monday to go see Kate. I feel like I really should get back into the swing of posting what I wear on the actual day I wear something. Just been a bit all over the place in the last two weeks with pre shooting outfits! I hardly ever wear my Allegeras any more, I think because they got so popular I decided I didn't like them. Such a hipster. The dress is the Petite version of the grey marl midi dress that Topshop has at the moment but that just drowns me. I have so much love for grey marl jersey! It just has a lovely slouchy off duty feel to it which I love. The necklace was something I picked through ASOS Future Stylist as I had my eye on it for ages!

Im off to a Viktor & Rolf product launch for their new Spicebomb fragrance tonight, which is actually a male fragrance but I LOVE male smells. My favourite Man smell is Versace Blue Jeans, which I used to force all my ex boyfriends wear. I smelt it on the tube (makes change from B.O.!) the other day and was sitting there sniffing this man! Haha. The oyster holder is from this ebay seller, and I just cant get enough of it so I just had to include it!

  77. I LOVE this outfit! I want a tartan scarf so badly, I need to hunt one down. Love the beanie and the dress! I was put off that dress for ages because of how long it is but if it comes in petite I might need to invest, I cannot stand dresses that go past my knees. I think I'd keel over and die if petite rnages didnt exist :| xxx
