I was always a bit wary of wearing black and blue together. I think the rule is black and navy though? Right. I don’t know, but I quite like how it looks. I picked this denim button up dress in the Primark sale for a mere £5. I wasn't too sure about it originally, but my Mum was rushing me so I decided to get it anyway. I don't really like light denim, but at the same time I really liked this. It reminds me of something Alexa Chung would wear, I think I just needed a little nudge in the right direction!

I had a ton of meetings as well as taking Aerys to the vets today (we'll see how she is in a few days!) so I only managed to snap two images before having to run out the door in a huge rush. I then naughtily went shopping (AGAIN) for some new garms. I had so much to return that I bought before Christmas, Remember my two week rule. If I don't wear something within two weeks of buying it, I'll return it. Even if I really like it. I always think if I haven't worn it in that time period then the likelihood of me wearing it in the future is pretty slim. I also somehow managed to not actually not spend as much as I returned for a change. So that cancels it out.. kinda

Today is one of those days where my hair looks crappy. I still haven’t gotten the styling routine down yet so I literally have no idea what the correct way to style it. I think I use too many products that I use to use on my old hair, its so weird that my whole hair type has changed pretty much overnight! It looks a bit blocky. Hmpft. Lego haircut anyone?

  3. My school uniform was black and navy, oh how disgusted I was when they introduced it but now I'm kind of numb to the combination I guess! I love this dress, I saw it myself but was in too much of a rush to pick it up. Hopefully it's still there! This outfit suits you so much, and I love your hair too. Maybe lego haircuts are the new thing? ;) x

  38. Love the outfit! Always thought denim (besides jeans) were things to wear in the summer, not winter, but I'm going to try raid my summer wardrobe for some denim pieces after seeing this. Looks gorgeous on you, thanks!

  42. I'm not usually a fan of sheer stockings, but these work. I think a belt would give the dress a whole different spin, to keep it fresh. I like the combo! And your hair looks good to me!

  47. I totally get what you mean about your hair issues - I just got my longish hair cut to about the same as yours and I have literally no idea how to make it work! I'm looking into pre-blow-dry volumising texturising things and styling it into wavy curls more than I used to (which was never). Please make a post/video if you work it out!

  49. I don't know......blue and black do work (as proof in your picture).......and you're right about the "supposed" rule that navy and black should never be together - however, I disagree with it, I like navy and black together, I think it could work. Could make a great blog post idea that :)

  50. Haha I suffer from lego hair too! I got 'The Blogger Cut' back in the summer, but recently went shorter. My hair is naturally super straight, and sometimes it just sits...wrong. Such a pain. It's quicker to wash and dry, but the time I spend actually making it look ok I swear is waaaaaay longer than before I went for the chop!

  56. I really like this messy-ish look you got going on (even though you think it looks crappy). and screw the rules about black and blue (Although I think it is black and navy). You look awesome!

  62. I've never ever been a fan of denim dresses, but I quite like the cut of this one, it's quite flattering and I think it would look really nice with Doc Martens! As for your hair, the only advice I can think to give you is to try and make sure it doesn't become like a triangle shape, so I think that volume on the top and loose ends would look nice, I also really like when you curl your hair, that looked lovely! x
