wasted hours








asos blazer
topshop boots (similar here)
new look fur
nails (see this post)

I almost forgot about blogging today until it clicked just before the light got bad, hence them not being the best photos I've ever snapped! I've been catching up on TV all day (lazy I know, but Call the Midwife is my favourite!) and doing the tedious task of sorting out my washing. I also finally got around to finishing up a playsuit I bought about 3 months ago with the intention of dying it black!

I bought this dress on payday along with the blue one because as soon as I saw it I was like "that is a ME dress". The usual oversized smock style, printed with t-shirt sleeves. Just too perfect. I like the yellow as well as the blue, I think I'll probably be really naughty and keep both of them! Smack on the wrist for me!

  52. That colour really suits you :) I need to get out of the habit of buying monochrome shades! The dress is quite pricey for ASOS though and there's similar ones in H&M for half the price atm :)

  64. I 'saved' the navy version of this in my asos basket about 2 weeks ago and debating buying it but didn't know if I trusted how it looked on the website, but now seeing it on you it looks much more wearable and boooh it is out of stock. Don't know if I could brave the yellow, you look lovely though. xx
