I just curse the sun so I can howl at the moon.

Today's dress is the sister of this dress - am I the only person who links items of clothing together like that, or am I just weird (probably just weird). I got them at the same time, and even though on the hanger I prefer the other dress, this one looks so much better on. It's a touch longer, and the skirt is way more spinny. But, they're pretty damn similar, anyway, which I don't mind because I am on such a cranberry kick at the moment. Plus it kind of matches my hair! Which may be changing soon...

Dress - Hype
Boots - New Look
Belt & Jewellery - Topshop
Nails - China Glaze 'White Out' with Model's Own Nail Art Pen

I'm absolutely living in these boots at the moment. I got them from New Look - again - and I can't go on enough about how awesome their wide calf range has been this year. I also totally want these. Aaaaand in black.

Plus, Topshop's jewellery sale continues to rule. The Topshop near my work always has the best jewellery sales! I picked up this amazing fox ring for £2.50 and the little initial necklace for £3.50. Plus, a fair few Christmas presents... including one that I liked so much I bought for me too, but now I can't wear it until after Christmas! Foiled. The belt is from Topshop too - another sale bargain, just a little while ago (I saw it on Emma and sought it out).

I wore this outfit on Saturday to go into London for a friend's birthday. I've gotta say, I'm kind of loving all my friends turning 30. It's a lot like the year we all turned 18, but with nicer alcohol. And less tequila. This time was marked by the birthday boy strawpedoing a mini bottle of Cava, so.


PS - Sorry for the graininess on some of these, I'd changed my camera settings without realising it! But hey, you can see the river for once!

  6. I'm obsessed with polka dots so am in love with this dress and your nails. I like how turning 30 is the same as turning 18 but with nicer alcohol, that makes the prospect of it seem a little less scary! x

  8. Love the dress! I have those boots but in black, love them! I am totally considering getting them in brown to! I think New Look need to extend their wide calf boots range!
