Look at me now

Saturday 2 April 2011


dress, cardigan, tights, ring: Topshop
nail varnish: Models Own
This collar sleeveless shirt dress in tan was one of my most recent purchases from Topshop, along with the ring i'm wearing. The dress fits real nicely and goes in at the waist. I wouldn't usually buy an item of clothing like this, but i've seen lots of people talk about these shirt dresses so when i went shopping i was eager to try it on. Let's just say it was love at first sight! Seeing something infront of you, being able to feel and examine the material and actually see how it looks on you most definately beats online shopping any day! Had totally forgotten what it was like to go shopping, it'd been SO long. I've left the top button undone because it looks rather ridiculous on me specifically when done up. Also.. hello white nails! Definately my favourite colour to paint my nails at the moment.

I apologise for how i look in these photos too, i've actually been pretty ill and had plenty of appointments this week hence my absence and lack of posts, absolutely exhausted is an understatement. I've spent a lot of this week with Sam, i've found it very relaxing and much needed, he's been so lovely looking after me as i've been all poorly. I found out some stuff about myself at one of my therapy sessions, like repressed memories or something? It's just really got me thinking and has made me realise that i've felt the way i do for a long time, and whats triggered me to feel this way etc. Although, i FINALLY got prescribed my anti depressants yesterday which i'm going to start taking tonight, so expect a lot more cheerier posts (hopefully) coming soon! I plan to spend the evening with my gorgeous Sam tonight too, love my evenings with him watching random movies, he always manages to brighten up my mood, i'm lucky to have him, i really am. <3

On of my favourite items of clothing at the moment, has to be skirts. They're just so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down in the space of a couple seconds if the accessories are adjusted. Personally, my favourite at the moment have to be flippy skirts as oposed to tube skirt. Feel so much more relaxed in flippy skirts, feel a lot more relaxed and feminine too, whereas in a tube skirt, i feel very concious as they're so skin tights. Perfect for the summer approaching too, here are some of my favourites which i've come across.
