tie dye skirt







dress/jumper: asos
cardigan: primark
rings: forever 21 & JWLRY
necklace: forever 21
boots: new look (so, so, so, so old!)
nails: models own hedonist* (review here)

Just a casual outfit today as I've been so busy doing things at home. I think I'm going to have square eyes from all this the time I've spent today staring at a computer screen! I can't wait to get off the computer and relax! I did go for a quick stroll at lunchtime (I seem to always run out of food after a weekend…) so I did have to actually get dressed. The weather is currently a mix between a bit of sunshine and still a bit damp after the weekend's epic downpour!

I really didn't want to like this jumper/skirt two in one from ASOS, but theres something about it that is so comfy, wearable and casual at the same time but still looks pretty unique. So I naughtily decided to keep it despite it being wayyyy over priced. I have a lot of love for tie dye at the moment and I keep meaning to go out and buy some dye so I can get DIY-ing! The boots I'm wearing today I've had for years and years  and recently re-discovered. They have to be my favourite flat boots. I got them in the sale randomly in New Look in Hereford one day in the middle of summer. They were the only ones I'd seen in store so I presumed it was fate finding them! I've worn them so much the soles are finally starting to wear away and I need to look into getting them re-soled at some point! I've noticed I have a distinct lack of cardigans in my wardrobe as well, this is the only one I've got with me at the moment and I don't even like it that much. Must make a mental note to buy some more!

  9. I'm really loving this outfit, though it really is a bit overpriced.. Can't wait to be living in London just so I can go to Asos (and Topshop, and a million other stores hehe).
