have it all









dress: asos
jacket: primark
cardigan: new look
belt: primark
hat: topshop
boots: office (old)
bracelets: turkish market stall, river island*, black tied*

Todays outfit was a quick throw on and go outfit as my internet was annoying me so much (so, so so so so slow!) I spent the afternoon working in Starbucks just so I had some working internet to finish up my projects! I really love this oversized smock dress, but wasn't so sure when I first got it, It just so casual and easy to wear! I paired it with my burgundy hat and the Topshop Coy lipstick as I thought the colours looked really really pretty together! Shock horror I'm wearing different boots from my Alvin's that I've worn for the past few posts! Infact I got this pair of victorian style lace up's with a voucher I got when I won the Look Show blogging competition years and years ago! I hear there is going to be another Look Show this year, So I really hope I can go again!

I thought I'd include the snap of my broken iPhone screen as I haven't shown you all yet. I dropped it when I was walking down the street one day chatting to Emma. I had that awful moment when your stomach just drops as I turned it over and it was all smashed! I really need to go get it replaced but I keep putting it off! My background is this picture of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan after they both got  titles after TLC (: Indy Schmucks indeed!

  2. Someone commented on one of your instagram photos today saying 'all you ever do is shop, blog and go to starbucks' and I felt like adding 'but she goes to starbucks to blog'! xx

  13. Oh I know exactly what you mean about breaking your screen and that stomach drop feeling, I dropped mine down the stairs this morning and i didn't even want to go down and look!
    Also what eyeshadow have you put under your eyes? It's such a gorgeous gold shimmery colour, I definitely need that in my life!

  30. Ugh! I hate that moment when you have to turn your phone after dropping it, I always slowly unveil it too... Just for the extra adrenaline!

    That dress colour looks really sweet on you, brings out your tan!

  37. I love your dress, the colour really suits you! Really like your hat too, burgundy is one of my favourites. I got an iPhone recently. The amount of times I've dropped it already is unreal, probably won't be long until mine gets smashed/cracked. Hope you get it fixed soon!

  40. My iPhone screen currently looks almost identical to yours! I dropped it in the petrol station as I was waiting to pay, didn't want to turn it over and witness the damage infront of a shop full of people.. worst moment ever!
    I probably ought to get it replaced, but I haven't got around to sorting it yet. I've kind of gotten used to not being able to see the bottom half of my screen properly, ha! Really love the outfit btw, the dress is lovely! xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks like you need a new iphone! You look lovely as always. :)
