I've had my eye on this dress for a very long time and on my latest ASOS binge I decided to purchase it. Im so annoyed I didn't get it sooner. It's the perfect loose, slouchy everyday fit and I find myself reaching for it all the time. It's comfy, easy to dress up or down and so flattering. I'm actually going to buy the red version because I think it would make perfect as a casual summer going out in the evening dress. I've worn this dress on a night out paired with chunky bright heels and a nice necklace, on days in the park with a pair of converse and a cardigan and like this which I'd describe as "I've got a few things to do in central London and I should really make a bit of effort but its too hot" kinda look. And at £25... its not a bad price! My gross legs are getting a outing as well as its just TOO DARN HOT.  I'd photoshop them to look half decent, but Im just not that kind of person (too lazy) Yes Im one of those English people that complains its too cold and then once the sun comes out its too hot. I've been sitting at my desk with the window wide open and I still feel like I need to get 1000 fans to have around me to keep me cool.

Tonight I've got to run a few errands in central London and hopefully make a few events before heading off to my Ukelele lesson at 8pm. I'm getting much better at it these days, not good enough to show you all quite yet but I reckon a few more lessons and I'll be able to successfully show you all a tune! Oh and yes, for everyone commenting on my new wrist microdermal, that is what I decided to get done at the weekend. I'm really happy with it and it's sitting really nicely. I am a little worried about it catching but we'll see how it goes! Must dash! x
