I actually took this outfit last week to post on my Birthday, but I was too excited to sit at my computer and post it so its going up today! Its been so long since I've done a actual "what Im wearing today" post and I really do apologise! Normally I do actually wear the outfits I photo about on the day I post about them. But various bits and pieces I've been doing recently have meant I've not had time to do a proper one. Fingers crossed I'll actually do one tomorrow! The weather here in the UK doesn't help, by the time I settle down to blog in the afternoon (I generally do blog related stuff from 2pm till about 8pm, taking photos around 3-4) its very dark! I thought it was supposed to be summer and my lighting woes would have gone by now!
I wanted this dress for a while and my flatmate saw it on eBay for half the price so I ended up buying it. My justification was that I don't have any red and white striped items. It sounded like a good enough excuse at the time! Im a touch to wide in the shoulder department unfortunately so it's a bit of a squeeze. I find alot of the topshop skater style dresses aren't broad enough for me! I paired the dress with my pleather primark jacket that has served me so well over the years. Ive had it for about 3 years now and it has to be one of my all time favourite items I've owned. I really do want to buy a real leather jacket though at some point, I just haven't found "the one"! Im so picky when it comes to coats and jackets! I also wore my trusty River Island scarf which is the perfect way to jazz up a super boring outfit! Excuse the mega clashy nails too! I did them for my Filofax Blogger Style off entry and didn't change them before I took these! Oops!
Had so many entries for my Zara bag giveaway! Rafflecopter has gone down well and seems to easy to use. Hopefully this will mean I'll do more giveaways on here. I'd love to do a weekly one but I don't know if thats overkill! I have an amazing giveaway that Im already planning for my blogs three year anniversary!
