stuck between stations







dress: monki (xs)
jacket: primark (old)
cuff: H&M
rings: jwlry
bag: ebay (black medium)
body chain: topshop (sale)
nails: essie lapis of luxury & models own ibiza mix* (review here)
shoes: ebay

Another casual-ish outfit from me today, Although to be fair my idea of casual is different from most peoples. Considering I once wore a bright red tulle prom dress to go to the doctors! I've been chilling at home, working on stuff and running errands most of the day. I'm also getting closer to getting to my goal of running 10k as I did 8.4km today! My longest run to date! I've decided to do the 10k race for life so I've been training a bit to get back into shape~

Tonight (and tomorrow I presume) I'll be listing alot of my summer clothes that I wore last year on my ebay account just so I can get rid of them. Out with the old and in with the new I think! Alot of the stuff I've worn on the blog before as well so I'd keep your eyes peeled if your looking for a specific item I've worn in the past. Most of the stuff will start at 99p +P&P (which is so expensive now, thanks Royal Mail!) as its easiest and I really just want it all gone ASAP! My bedroom is so cluttered after bringing a ton of clothes home from my Mum's house at the beginning of the week!
