Shirt: New Look Belt: Charity Shop Tights: Topshop

This dress is infact a shirt which is a size 20, i bought this ages ago and found it today whilst rumaging through a box of clothes i'd totally forgotten about. Obviously despite my own insecurities i even know that i am not a size 20 so to make this shirt look a bit nicer instead of just a long gangly thing, i've belted it at the waist. I've allowed it to be a little ruched above the belt to shorten the length of the shirt and making it look a little more flattering on me. The ruffles down the middle of the shirt add that bit of an eyecatcher as without it, the shirt  would be just your plain average shirt. I think shirt dresses can look really sophisticated and would be perfect work wear, especially if worn with a black blazer to keep the monochrome look or a brightly colour one to make this outfit more eyecatching.




I can't believe that this is the last day i August and tomorrow begins the start of September. I'm restarting my AS levels again this year and school starts on properly on the 8th, can you believe it.. how quickly has Summer sped by? They've changed the dress code from 'smart casual' to 'smart wear', so i need to be buying a lot more of shirts like the one in the photos above. I actually don't know how i'm going to cope with the weather though, it's about 15degrees here today and i am freeeezing, so when the temperatures drop to like below 5 degrees or something crazy like that i have no idea how i'm going to still manage going into school for my lessons when all i'll want to do is be at home in a hoody instead of in 'smart wear' Anyways rant over.

Top, Skirt, Tights: Topshop

When i saw this tee in store, i knew i had to have it, it was priced at around £18 so it was a definite must have. The top itself is lovely, i really like the shape of it and how it is that little bit baggier around the chest area allowing it to sit differently to most tops. I never tend to buy tops that have any form of text on them, i'm more of a plain jane in that respect, but i really like the font that this text is written in, and it sits nicely when being worn. The phrase 'vous et moi' means 'you and me' in french, and i think it just looks sexy really. The sexyness appeal is upped when you notice the heart underneath the 'et', so the top can be read as either 'you and me' or 'you love me'. Lovely. I need to invest in more of these flippy skirts, they're so easy to wear and are just generally comfortable. When i first put this skirt on earlier today i can assure you that it was not creased in the slightest, but thanks to my lovely little Brody my skirt is now rather creased, the things i do for that pup!

MEET BRODY!

My beautiful pedigree labrador retriever puppy! Isn't he just the most gorgeous thing ever? Like i actually love him to bits. Regular readers of my blog will know how much i longed for my own dog, so this is such a blessing. He had a bad start to life and was rescued by the owners sister-in law after being caged with his brothers and sisters in his own poo & wee for days and they all got fleas and worms too. They're all fine now though thankfully. It's fate that we found eachother though because i need him just as much as he needs me.

Why have i called him Brody? Right, well his actual name is 'Brody II', named after his daddy who was caled Brody.. as you can probably tell, we were totally stuck for names and nothing seemed to stick, but he responded really well to Brody and it actually suits him. Brody is also a Scottish name, and due to the fact that my dad's Scottish we thought it was just perfect. Not gonna lie though, he's a holy terror

Dress: New Look Tights+Ring: Topshop Necklace: Charity Shop

I've had this dress for ages, but i don't actually think i've worn this more than once, if at all which is a shame because its beautiful! The lace detail is so fine and interesting. I don't tend to wear white items of clothing, and i think the reason behind this dress hardly being worn could be to do with it's colour. Not that whites not a nice colour, but i just don't think it looks flattering on me, i prefer black as it's slimming and i think white makes me look bigger, but maybe that's just me being silly. I'm actually quite glad that i found this at the back of my wardrobe, i think it's definately something i'm going to have to wear again.I'm wearing a cross necklace to give this outfit a bit of a 'gothic' look to it, as oposed to the usual 'black & white monochrome' look. I feel very 60's actually.




Come Wednesday, me & Sam will have been together for a year, must say it has been the best year of my life, and that's no exagerration. I was wondering if any of you had any ideas on how we could make it a special day and celerbrate at a cheap cost. So if you have any ideas, i would appreciate it so much if you could let me know!

This beauty will be my puppy come Saturday! A 9 week old golden labrador boy!!!

HOW GORGEOUS IS HE!?
I sat there with 5 male puppies, (parents said it had to be a boy) and this one would not leave me alone! He literally sat on my lap the whole time, tugging away at my jumper and when i picked him up he started licking my neck and nibbling my ear... I was instantly sold!
I'm so excited about getting him, and buying all his stuff, like a cute collar and lead, and training him!
Any of you fancy helping me out with some names?

Blouse: Atmosphere@Marks & SpencersUnder Top: TescoShorts: PrimarkTights: Topshop Wedges: New Look

I never normally photograph my shoes when posting outfit photos but i thought, what the heck, may aswell. I actually went out in this pair of wedges today, my first and only pair of wedges infact. Suprisingly comfortable as oposed to other pairs of shoes i've worn, will definately have to invest in many more pairs! I like this blouse, it's so simple, and easy to wear with most items of clothing. My only little moan about this beauty is that, yes it's see through, so i've worn a cute little vest top underneath it to keep my dignity. These shorts totally contrast this blouse as the frayed ends give the shorts such a rebelious, boyisturous look, whereas the blouse is very classy. Well i suppose they do say that opposites attract.
My hair looks so much blonder in these photos too, yay! I haven't even touched my hair with dye or highlights, this hair colour is all thanks to the sun!




I'm going to try this new thing, where i just think of everything as a positive... yeah i somehow don't see this 'new leaf' lasting very long, but no.. positive thinking.. it WILL last long. Me & Sam have been together a year at the end of August - Positive. I'm restarting school in September studying the subjects i want - Positive. I'M GETTING A PUPPY. - Positive. ... Oh yes, you heard me correctly, i'm finally, after many many months of begging my parents, they've finally agreed to let me have my own puppy, we're getting a little golden labrador.. SO excited. Meant to be going to view him tomorrow, i'll try take photos for y'all if i do!

I'm really trying to cut back on the amount of money i'm spending, i don't dare look on any online clothing stores, i don't dare to tempt myself. Charity shops for little bargains is how i plan to spend my money, although a little treat here nor there won't hurt anyone ;) Only thing i'm allowing myself to splash out on is that of a new winter coat, i've started browsing through some magazines for the 'perfect Winter coat' but none have caught my eye as of yet... what are your ideas on the perfect coat for this Winter?!

Also, any of you whom are at V festival, or off to any other Festival.. i am EXTREMELY jealous.. feel free to give me your ticket, if you like... i won't say no! :D

Just a few snaps from my recent holiday to Zante to show you all. It was a great 10 days of partying, alcohol, sunbathing, and just general fun! Theres quite a few people in all these photos actually, but it's cool, because none of them are randomers, i actually know them all from back home :) It was really nice to spend the first 3 days and evenings with Sam and his friends too! Now that i've been on all my Summer Holidays, i'm stuck with so many summer clothes which won't be worn again for a good while. I suppose i'll have to try and incoporate some of these items into some of my Winter Outfits. Oh my, can you believe the Winter months are fast approaching? SCARY STUFF.
Did you have fun on your holidays this Summer 2011?

Silk Maxi Skirt

Currently on Holiday in Zante - Back on the 14/08/11

topshop silk maxi skirt by boutique 100.00
Does anyone care to lend me £100.00 so i can buy this beautiful maxi skirt? This skirt is from Topshop By Boutique and i think it needs a place in my wardrobe, infact i know it needs a place! Okay, so this is totally out of my price-range, and i wouldn't blow all my monies on this skirt but a girl can dream right?! The red (as stated on the website) looks more of a deep coral colour to me, but thats by the by. The colour is really flattering for a skirt of this length and it's made of 100% silk.

Could wear this skirt with a simple little vest, a slogan tee, or a jumper. Perfect for every season i'm thinking. Depending on what you decide to wear on the top half with a maxi skirt determines what kind of vibe your giving off in my opinion. For example, a little vest would make me think of summer and that they're pretty hippie & laidback. A slogan tee would make me think that they're a little bit daring and out there A jumper would make think of pure innocence, because you'd look sweet. Each look is more than easy to pull off, and it's quite interesting to know that you can get so much from a piece of clothing. Although i do think £100.00 is too expencive for this skirt, it would be money well spent on something that you  could wear throughout the year.
