Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around

Tobacco pussy bow dress: Primark
Nude shoes: Primark
Nude tights: Primark
Gold sequin bag: Topshop
Pearl drop earrings: Topshop
Cream hair flower: Primark

I ended up going for the Primark version of this dress, I just cannot afford Topshop at the moment. It is extremely short, im used to wearing midi-length skirts/dresses at the minute so not used to it! Excuse the massive legs I wanted to show you the back of my tights. They were only a pound but my boyfriend says it looks like I have had a skin graft!

I decided to go for a bun, thought as the pussy bow is a statement it deserved to be shown off! I used a doughnut and just pinned my hair around it. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Now my hair is getting longer, i'm finding I can do more things with it.

Im off to camden tonight and thanks to Robyn and Ellie I have a few ideas of some new places to try out. We tend to still to the same ones out of habit. I'm not going to go too mad as I have work tomorrow but I'm looking forward to having a bit of dance and being with all my favourite boys! Yes I am the only girl going out again haha!

I'm looking forward to blogging again properly next week, I nearly died last week commuting but it was so worth it! I have so much to talk about!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
