Don't underestimate the things that I will do


Floral dress with matching belt: Primark
Bow nude wooden sandals: Next
Vintage straw bag: eBay
Gold coloured bangles: Topshop and Primark
Red plastic watch: Toywatch

Ouch my legs look a bit red in these pictures! I only thought I got sunburnt on my back!

This straw bag is one of the best things I brought on eBay. I only paid £1.04 for it, think it came to about £3 with postage. It went with absolutely everything and is the perfect holiday bag. Just the right size to lug all my junk around! Unfortunately my poor shoes had broken before I had even got on the plane. I had to carry them in my hand luggage as they were too heavy for my suitcase. On the way to the airport I noticed the bow was flapping about! I tried to super glue it once I found the nearest supermarket next to our hotel but it didn't work. I took them back when I got home and exchanged them for another pair. Hopefully these ones won't break, they are a perfect holiday shoe!

I went shopping over the weekend and hit up H&M. They really have stepped it up a gear this season and I could have brought the whole shop. I brought a beautiful orange midi skirt for work. It is made of such lovely material and was only £24.99. Got an outfit planned for that later on during the week :)

Lots of people commented on my orange dress in the previous post. It was a River Island special and I blogged about it here. :)

Did anyone do anything exciting over the weekend?


  1. I love this whole outfit, especially the pattern on the dress. It's a shame about the shoes, they're very pretty; hopefully those ones will hold out. Really nice outfit, and you look very summery in it! xxx

  2. What a shame they broke, they look great too. I can see why they went with everything.

    Cute bag and what a steal.

  3. You find some amazing dresses in Primark lady! Can't wait to see how you styled the one we both have... such a nightmare about those shoes though, argh! And yeah H n M has so many great Autumn things, I keep having to restrain myself when I'm there! xx

  4. You look so chic and lovely, what rotten luck about those gorgeous sandals. x

  5. Lovely outfit, you look great! Shame about your shoes, they're so pretty but at least you have a new pair xx

  6. Ooooh love the bag - what a bargain! Hope you had a lovely holiday, photos on your post before are just making me outrageously jealous and positively transparent!

  7. That dress is gorgeous, & i love the bag! Amazing for £3!


  8. fabulous outfit, that bag was a snip. hope your new shoes hold out, they look great. I wouldn't mind heading to your photoshoot location, palms in the background indeed, yes please!

  9. Pretty dress, the sandals look fab :) xx

  10. If there are some small cracks or small holes that can be found on the walls or can be found in wooden furniture, these cracks and holes can hide the insects or be full of household insects, you must put out insecticides to get rid of all existing insects Then all the cracks and holes must be blocked so that the insects will not return to them again
