nails: aa nails neon green

Quick outfit post that I took quite late so the lighting is a touch off! Doesn't help when your wearing a all black outfit either! I wore this super oversized tee smock style dress to London Fashion Week back in February, Its basically one big unflattering sack but "oh so fashion daaaahhhhhling". It sort of worked its way to the back of my wardrobe but after seeing Emma in the yellow version on one of her instagram snaps I decided to try belting it for a more flattering fit. I wish I took some better close ups of my necklace as the ones I did take didn't focus properly but Regal Rose sent me the most gorgeous silver chain of crosses which is so delicate and beautiful. Also, Im sorry Im wearing that ancient Primark jacket still! Its one of my favourites but I don't think they still sell it!

I really don't know what my hair was playing at today as it just wouldn't style properly! My beloved enrapture totem styler has broken and until I can get out to buy a new one Im having to use my old Babyliss Conical wand, which I do like but its nothing on my Totem Styler! Today I've been packing to go home for the weekend, I think I'm going to go on Thursday evening now (my blog birthday!) even though I planned to leave on Friday. Tomorrow I've got a meeting and then Im hitting Westfields in the search of some more holiday clothes. I thought I was near finishing my holiday shopping but I need new sunglasses, a beach bag and some more gladiator sandals. Any reccomendtions of nice ones are welcome in the comments!

  21. I know you love your Enrapture Totem Styler but I really, really, really recommend the Windle & Moodie revolving curling iron - it's so quick and easy! Oh and Forever 21 is brilliant for sunglasses and Topshop have some gorgeous rose gold gladiator sandals but I have no idea about beach bags! Even this is a whole black outfit, I really do think the nails, your jewellery and shoes all complete the look - it really suits you!

  40. Black is always in style.
    Steve Madden shoes are my go to for anything. I have lovely white gladiator sandals by SM, but I think I lose them. It's sad.

  46. I think I need to cave in and get a styling wand rather than being tight and just using my straighteners.
