Thunderbolts & Lightning

Yesterday started out beautifully, hence the summer dress and sandals... then not long after I left the house there was a massive down pour, which my fake tan didn't appreciate, and thunder and lightning. We ended up going for coffee/hot chocolate and cake (as usual - no wonder I can't lose any weight) and then played scrabble until the sun came out again.

I need to start looking for proper jobs because I am clearly wasting my days away.

The dress is from a vintage shop in Liverpool and I love the bright bold tropical flowers against the grey background. The belt is from my mum's 80s accessories collection and the sandals were an absolute bargain from Office - I think they were about £40 originally and then a sale plus student discount made them £9. Score!

Apologies for the darkness of this photo and the awkward pose - it always happens when I'm trying to explain to people how to use my camera and then they just take one picture and I have to pose quickly!

  10. I love the pictures!! And your outfit is amazing. You're right, the bright colors go really well with such a neutral background!
    Haha, that happens to me too! We always have to take a bunch of photos because the in first couple I'm always talking about how it should be taken :(
    You definately inspired me to get those bike shorts! I love them! One part of me wants to wear them with everything and the other part goes 'NO! don't wear them! They'll get old faster!' I still want all the other colors in the collection but for now I'm satisfied :)
    Leeds looked amazing as always! Too bad about your bad neighbors though! That really sucks for Nicola :(
    I need a different job. I hate the one I'm at now!

    Ok, sorry, I know I just commented on like 10 different topics - I sometimes get carried away!
