black and blue

blouse: asos
cardigan: primark
socks: topshop
brogues: office

This weekend has been so tiring, even if I've hardly lifted a finger. Yesterday I went to Kent to see my baby cousins (youngest is 2 tomorrow, how cute!) and my grandad. I had a lovely time! I overslept today because of getting back so late last night, and my bus had come early so I'd already missed it when I got to the bus stop!

I've been determined to wear my swallow print blouse for ages now, I've had it for over a month! I've always been a bit on the fence about wearing navy and black together as the shades are so similar but different at the same time, but I plucked up my wardrobe courage and just went with it!

Lewis came to meet me at work for my lunch break, but in the end I didn't even eat anything and went to Topshop instead! I really need to stop spending all my money. There was only one of my size left in each of the items I got though, so that's a good enough excuse I guess! Also spotted the tan heels I posted in the store, I nearly cried.


I already have this dress in a toffee shade, but since I saw a black version I've just been thinking "ohhh that will just go with everything and I will wear it all the time!" so I rushed to the till. I saw that a ring I'd had my eye on had arrived in store too, and even though it was a medium (I usually wear a small) I got it anyway. I'm kind of annoyed that it fits because I want to keep it now!

I'm off for a quick soak in the tub (complete with lots of bubbles as always!) before snuggling up in bed with my sketchbooks and X Factor, what a perfectly ordinary Sunday night! Toodles!

  1. Aw glad you got the black dress, I think it's one of my favourite things at the moment.

    Yay for the swallow print! I kept going back to look at it cos I couldn't decide whether to get it or not but then eventually decided I probably wouldn't wear it that often... you've made me want it all over again though.

  2. Oh and the ring is gorge too! Want!

  3. oooh you look gorgeous in that dress! I tried the other colour on and its too short for me and doesn't cover my bum sooo annoying because i am average height! I keep spending all my money in topshop too - super naughty
