decadence






dress: monki
necklace: forever 21
rings: jwlry, market stall, love hearts and crosses*
watch: swatch
nails: maybelline turquoise lagoon*

Another summery outfit today! I've been trying to make the most of the last of the sunshine before it goes away again. I read somewhere its a supposed to snow next week or something, I'll be pulling my fur coat out again! I bought this dress with the intention of wearing it to LFW, but I opted for something else. I wasn't going to keep this Monki dress but I ended up having to as I forgot to return it before the 28 days and I didn't fancy exchanging it. Oops! Im kinda glad I did keep it in the end as I do really like the way it looks on. Like a lot of Monki stuff it's so simple but has a quirky edge to it with the over layer. Monki is quickly becoming one of my favourite stores! I also wore these Primark sandal wedges that I bought a few years ago. They make my legs look even shorter than they already are but oh well!

Off for a bit of shopping on Oxford Street this evening with my Flatmate. I need to buy a new foundation (probably going to get Estee Lauder Double Wear as per usual!) and some tights (oh the excitement). Im then going to come home and tan and continue with the 30 day shred! I've done it everyday since I started and it doesn't hurt as much as everyone has made out it does!

  6. I heard its meant to snow too, ridiculous weather! I've never looked at Monki's stuff but I've read good things about them so may have to have a look. Love the necklace, anything cross related is a winner!
