Today I had a few meetings about London Fashion Week so I wanted something easy and something I could just throw on. I've been eyeing up this midi on ASOS for a while now and thought it was about time I bought it. It has a really low back which means finding a bra is quite difficult so I will need to look into that. I know you can get those low back ones though so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Midi is a new length for me but I actually really like it on me, I think I've ever so slightly outgrown the mini and I actually find it really odd wearing short skirts! I always thought midi's wouldn't flatter my short legs but it doesn't actually look all that bad! I have to admit I've really got my moneys worth with this khaki and leather jacket, It's perfect to throw on over anything for a more grungy look! I highly recommend investing in something like this, even though everyone and their mother seems to have a coat like this!

I had my phone stolen this weekend and Im moving house this week so everything is a bit messed up and Im super stressed out. Things seem to have fallen back into place today thankfully, so it's not too bad! Trying to relax a bit and calm down! Tonight I think Im gonna chill and watch a soppy film or something!

  12. So sorry to hear you had your phone stolen, I also had mine taken on a night out in London, as have many of my London friends, most frustrating thing ever! ):
    I got the primark version of your jacket as my student budget wouldn't stretch to the RI one & I've been wearing it constantly too!

  18. love the dress!
    asos has a 25% sale right now if you want to have a look, they have sent an email.
    for this dress you could use a bra that has sticky sides. i saw one on asos a while ago but i dont know if its still there.
    plus there is also a beauty competition that i will be nominating you in check it out here: http://www.travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/beauty-and-the-beach/

  45. I love this, not too sure if I would ever manage to pull off a midi skirt as I'm really short! That jacket of yours is looking better and better every time I see it and I'm getting close to going out and buying it or something similar, it's so versatile! x

    Have you tried the bra strap extenders? http://www.johnlewis.com/301920/Product.aspx They change the shape of the bra at the back, I've never tried them but I've been told they work really well.
