starry eyed









ebay collar
river island jacket
primark super cosy tights

Tonight I'm off to see Ellie Goulding at Brixton Academy with V05! Fun fact: Ellie Goulding is possible one of the top two things to come out of Hereford, the other being Cider. Excuse my fairly safe outfit but I literally have no idea what to wear to gigs! Back in the day it was so simple, just a lot of hair spray, the skinniest jeans I owned at the time and a band tshirt. Darn it not being a emo kid anymore! The dress has a completely open back, which I neglected to photograph but it is really pretty and flattering. I paired it with super cosy tights from Primark, which are possibly my favourite things in the world at the moment. I raved about them in a post last year and I've had to repurchase them again this season. They are basically super thick fleecy lined tights and they have the fully opaque look of leggings but with feet. I love them and cant recommend picking them up enough!

  3. These boots are so nice!
    Can't agree more about Primark's super-cosy tights, the amount I have bought over the past few years is ridiculous.
    Have fun at Ellie Goulding x

  19. You're brave wearing heels to Brixton Academy, I can't cope with the combination of heels and slopey floors! I may have to make a little trip to Primark for those tights - my legs get so cold at the moment!! x

  28. I've got my super cosies on today too! It's way too cold at the moment not to wear them! Love the simplicity of the dress, would love to see the back sometime. And the boots are really cute and feminine. I miss being an emo kid too haha! Was so much easier. Don't forget the ridiculous amount of black eyeliner!! xxx

  29. I bought the super cosy tights after your recommendation and I LOVE them! My legs are so warm, although I think i'll get the larger size next time as the top does seem to fall down slightly! That dress is gorgeous too! x

  30. The Primark tights are incredible, even better than some of the expensive ones I have bought before!
