topshop boutique primark outfit

jacket: primark (old)
boots: topshop
bracelet: turkish market stall

"SO TELL ALL THE ENGLISH BOYS YOU MEET ABOUT THE AMERICAN BOY BACK IN THE STATES!" basically I've listened to Jude Law and a Semester Abroad about 332432 times in the last two days so it was pretty easy picking a title for todays blog post! Normally the song titles or lyrics of my blog posts just come from whatever I've listened to most that day! Today I've been so, SO busy, I've barely had any time to do anything apart from work but managed to sneak out the house for an eyebrow threading sesh this afternoon as they were so overgrown it was getting a little out of hand. I am trying to grow them out a bit more so Im telling myself it's for a good cause! Now Im back and finishing up a project and then possibly out for a little drink tonight. I'm actually making the most of the fact I live in London for a change!

I wore my new favourite dress from Topshop, all eighty-five great british pounds of beautifulness! I love the oversized fit, the length, the colour and the material. Just feels so lightweight and gorgeous. I did have so much buyers remorse when I bought it and hadn't taken the tag off quite yet but I bit the bullet and did it today. I feel a pang of guilt of paying that much for something but I really have such a thing about Topshop Boutique, it's all so gorgeous! I have my eye on this cord dress next! I wore my new Topshop Alvins today and already have some epic blisters, I really need to wear them in so pain is beauty and all that!

  16. I love the dress, the print is gorgeous, looks a tad TOO oversized on you but I think that might just be because the jacket hides the shape. Bet it's great with a belt too!

  37. Got that song stuck in my head now!!!

    Love that dress. Little worried about how it will look with my baps (hopefully more floaty and wonderful than tent-like and frumpy) so I will have to try it on in a shop soooooon!

    Hope your feet heal up quickly! I got the most horrendous blisters from my JC Foxy's - I blame the fact that I'm always in a rush - and they took aaages to heal. But they were awful, like raw skin :( I hope yours heal up super quick!

  55. Ahh this dress looks lovely on you, I think it would make me look about a size 28. I love the cord one too though, and you could style that in so many ways, especially for Winter.

    I dropped you an email the other day about a Q&A, just wondering if you'd managed to have a peek at it yet? :)

  57. Well this is a lush outfit if ever I saw one!! Don't feel guilty, everyone deserves the odd splurge.. just make sure you get lots of wear out of it. I love the pattern on it and the leather jacket and studded boots are just perfect. Like I said totally lush outfit, i'm totally crushing on it.

  60. I cannot understand if something went wrong during ironing the dress or it's just the print. Dont really like it. Cannot believe those boots are so uncomfty, the look so good!
