Livin on the wedge...

Today I went shop, shop shopping .... woooooohooooo

I've been after a dress for my friends wedding for a while, and spotted one I liked online the other day, however I'm a bit funny about buying things online, cause a lot of the time I don't like things when I've tried them on!
Is anyone else like this??
So off I went to the next town over .. where they have most high street shops, not like our town where we only have a couple ... And there in Dorothy Perkins was the dress I'd seen online., once on it was love at (2nd) sight :D

I also tried on two other dresses and they were beautiful too, but I could only afford one of them!
I did get a day dress, a top and belt in the sales though .. oh and some new underwear lol.

Seeing as I couldn't even be bothered to get showered and dressed till gone 12.00 today (woop for holidays) I think I had a very productive day ....

What I wore:
Skirt: H&M - USA.
Top: Papaya @ Matalan.
Necklace: Gifted from my Nanna.
Shoes: Marks & Spencer's.

**Sneaky Peek**

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cafe Latte!

Today I went to the hairdressers, decided to go for a different look for Summer (Yes I get bored easily and change my mind every few days lol)

I decided to go for an iced latte colour and have blonde highlights running through it - pretty similar to what I had two summers ago!
It just breaks it up and gives it a bit of movement and oomph!

Was colder than I expected it to be today and I hadn't got a cardie to hand so shoved my leather jacket on over the top of my dress!
What I wore:
Dress: New Look.
Jeans: Tesco.
Shoes: M+S.
Necklace: ???
Jacket: Florence and Fred @ Tesco.



What d'yall think??

Closer than Close ...

This is what I wore to work on Tuesday:
It was such a hot, sticky and humid day! Not nice at all .. we really needed a good ol thunderstorm to break up the closeness feel in the air!

Before chilling with a nice meal, glass of wine and the wii (hubby was out!! :) )
