I like it in the city when two worlds collide

Orange and cream floral dress: Dorothy Perkins via choice
White crochet cardigan: Topshop
Coral bow pumps: Primark
Orange bag: Topshop

Summer seems to have made an appearence in September, an amazing 26 degrees today. I busted out this sun dress, the first time I have worn it this year with bare legs. I wore it to work but had to bring out the flesh coloured tights because it was too cold. It was a complete bargain. I saw it in Dorothy perksin for £35 but it was too much for my student budget. It popped up in Choice for £11 a few months later! It is the perfect summer dress. Such a nice length and as it is made out of cotton it is very light to wear. I look very matchy today!

Popped to Lakeside today to get a few last minute things for my holiday mainly for the boy. Suprisingly I didn't buy anything just a birthday present for my friend. I could have spent a small fortune in Primark (again) but the queue was awful and I wasn't in the mood to deal with all those people! I went out for an early dinner to the local Mexican and am feeling extremely stuffed. I had to nearly roll home, always a bad idea to go out for dinner completely starving. You always end up ordering far too much! I am now going to settle down to watch the X Factor to end the day.
