Only know you're high when you're feeling low

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx Dress:(*) Chicnova
Blazer: Primark
Hat: Etsy
I was sent this beautiful dress from Chicnova a while ago, but i managed to misplace this, so apologies to the brand, as i should of blogged this way earlier. This dress is beautiful and is a perfect summer dress, but as i've shown, it can also be worn in the winter too, so it has a great versatility about it. I love the colour, the salmon/coral colour is perfect for this current trend right now as pink is really in, and it's so flattering on pale skin. I really like how the dress sits too, it's quite big on me at the top but it comes in nicely at the waist, and the piece of material the drapes at the top, covering the bust area is something i'm a big fan of. This dress is gorgeous, and the brand have been so understanding in waiting for this review, so i'd just like to thank them.

AxParty Outfit

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Blazer: Primark via Charity Shop
Last Thursday i attended the AX Paris Party in London and this is what i wore. I decided to wear this outfit, as it was a fabulous excuse to dress up. This dress is something i've had for ages, and finally had an excuse to wear, i love how flicks at the bottom, and has a lovely design running down the middle of the dress. I chose a black dress, well, because you can't really go wrong with a black dress, and it always looks classy. This cropped cream blazer really compliments the dresses design due to having a little Victorian look about it. I love the shoulder pads in this blazer, really gives this outfit that oomph that it needed. I chose red nails and a red lippy to go with this outfit, and i'm wearing a two fingered peach cross ring.

The event was beyond fabulous and it was great to meet some people from the AX Paris and Etail PR team as well. They were lovely. I also met some amazing bloggers that i've admired for ages and the whole event was just so much fun. Free cockails and canap├ęs all night. The cocktails were divine, and the event which was held at Proud Cabaret was fantastic. The entertainment was incredible, from burlesque to fire breathers, and the host was hilarious. I had a great time and was honoured to be invited.

Louder than a lion

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Blazer: Planet
Shirt: Next
Shorts: New Look

Thought i'd embrace the pink trend today by wearing two different shades of pink together and creating this outfit. I've had this shirt for a couple of years, it's nice and baggy and a lovely pastel shade. The shorts were a birthday present i got a couple years ago too and i'm loving the brightness of them, they're high-waisted and sit really nicely. I've tucked the shirt in and added this blazer to smarten up the outfit, making it just that tad classier. Due to the shorts being high-waisted the sit quite highly showing quite a lot of leg, something i'm not a fan of, i'd be a lot happier if the shorts were a big longer. Personally i think this is quite a loud outfit, the colours, especially from the shorts, really shout at you, and the colours compliment one another so well and the blazer really brings the outfit altogether.

I'm going to an AX Paris Event tomorrow, let me know if your going as i'd love to meet as many of my readers and other bloggers as possible. I don't really want to take my crutch but i think i'm going to have to take it with me and perhaps leave it in a cloakroom or something. I'm also taking a chance by wearing wedges, so wish me luck! #AxParty!

New Look Day Dress Wishlist #5

new look day dresses collate
1 2 3
4 5 6

I'm currently lusting after all these Day Dresses from New Look. Aren't they all just beautiful and perfect for this Autumn/Winter months if your looking for a great outfit in the day. You could also get away with wearing them in the evening, dressed up with a blazer and a pair of heels, making each and every one of these pieces a fabulous individual dress.

1: I love the simplicity of this dress, you can't go wrong with a monochrome piece and i think the crochet white collar is such a lovely touch. This is a perfect day or night dress.

2: I absolutely love the print on this dress, it looks like eyes with long eyelashes and i think it's such a quirky print and that's really what attracted me to it. The belted middle is fabulous too, bringing in the waist and letting the skirt flare.

3: This feminine dress is probably my favourite out of the wishlist. It's elegance and class really drew me in and the colour is just beautiful. The collar is lovely and looks so delicate. I'm loving the print on the breast area, the rose print really is so classy.

4: The elephant print on this dress is so cute and such a brilliant smock dress. The colour is perfect for the daytime and would look great with a little cardigan. The elephant print is so different, making this something i'd definitely want in my wardrobe.

5: This girly dress is gorgeous, the white top and the pink daisy print skirt is so feminine and is something i'd love to wear during the daytime dressed up a bit. It's simplicity is something i'm a big fan of as you have lots you can accessorize with.

6: This shift dress is a gorgeous shade of red and is a lovely shape and i really like the short sleeves. I think it's really sophisticated and would be perfect work-wear and would definitely be a great evening outfit as well as a daytime outfit.

Tartan Cross

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Shirt: Topshop
Jumper, Skirt & Ring: New Look
I'm wearing this black outfit, trying to keep it simple so i could throw on this oversized tartan shirt on to wear with it. This black jumper i got a while ago and i've never worn! It's lovely and snuggly and i love the pendant cross on the jumper, i think it's simplicity is just brilliant. I think the colours from the tartan shirt really highlight the cross. This tartan shirt is something i found at the back of my wardrobe, and considering the major tartan trend right now, i thought this was very appropriate.

I'm getting my hair dyed blonde today, so this is a scheduled post. I'm getting my extensions back. They're a bit pricey, but mum and i are going to split it as an early birthday present to me. I'm looking forward to having blonde hair, and then long blonde hair later on in the week!

Take me away

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Jumper: Tesco
Skirt: Boohoo
Ring: New Look

I recently bought this skirt from Boohoo and just fell in love with it when i saw it online, i've wanted a tartan skirt for a while and i thought a blue one was quite nice. When it finally arrived i realised the resemblance it had to my school skirt which put a downer on it for me (school was a terrible time for me), but i thought i'd embrace it and make a gorgeous outfit with it. The skirts actually quite big on me and i've got it clipped at the back, instead of sitting on my waist where it should sit, it's sitting on my hips, which was really frustrating. I'm wearing this woolen jumper which has a lovely pattern on it that i think compliments the tartan pattern really well. A jumper was definitely needed, here in England it's freeeeeezing, and i feel the cold so badly! I'm wearing this pink pendant ring which i think adds a nice pop of a bright colour and goes great with the outfit. This outfit definitely doesn't remind me of school times now thankfully!   

I really need/want a holiday. I just need some me time, and to get away. I know they say that if you go away, your problems won't and they'll follow you wherever you go, but i just need a break, a break from me preferably haha. And i need some heat. I hate the cold.

Can we dance

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Blazer: Topshop via Charity Shop
Necklace: New Look
I love this dress, i definitely don't wear it enough. I love how it kind of fits in with the current tartan trend at the moment too due to the pattern on the dress. It's a simple monochrome dress, that sits really nice and isn't too figure hugging which i'm quite happy about. I've decided to wear it with this pastel pink blazer as i think the dress and the blazer both really compliment eachother. This blazer is a favourite find of mine from a Charity Shop, it's just beautiful. Jewellery wise, i've just added a gold necklace, probably could of added a few rings, but my nails need painting so i opted against them.

I saw my health psychologist for the first time today, i don't really feel like i can click with her, and i found it quite hard to talk to her about my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I mean there's only so many times you can say that you miss your old life, hate having to use crutches majority of the time and it's majorly depressing. So i found the session quite frustrating. I have another hospital appointment this week, seems to be all my life revolves around haha.
