The worst things in life come free to us


Outfit:
Two tone orange and cranberry dress with matching belt: Primark
Nude wooden sandals: Next
Gold bangles: Topshop and Primark
Red plastic watch: Toywatch

Ahhh the tan. How I wish it wasn't fading. I don't look this golden anymore :( It feels like I have never been away.

A fairly simple outfit as there is nothing worse than being all hot and flustered on holiday! I love this dress, another Primarni special, but I don't think it fits right. The lining is a but funny underneath, makes my hips look a lot bigger than they actually are. The top is quite baggy when I think it should be a bit fitted. Ah well I suppose you get what you pay for and it was only £15. I am still going to keep wearing it I think as I really love the style and colours.

Things are back to normal this week. The daily grind of the commute, jazzacise, a few meals out and the Next Sale to contend with at the weekend. On one hand I love the sale as I get lots of overtime which means lots of money. On the other hand I have to give my weekend up and miss out on things. Swings and roundabouts.

I also subscribed to the GlossyBox. I have been umming and ahhing for a few months, my contract at Magicalia ends in October so I will be back working part time at Next and be earning a lot less. But I have been avidly reading blogs and been green with envy so I decided to just take the plunge. I can always unsubscribe in October right? So excited to recieve my first one!

How's your week been?

  2. Looks gorgeous on you my dear! I also find the top baggy but nothing to be done really! You can put another top over it, I've done that a few times. You're mega tanned, booooo! :p xx

  3. I thought it was a top and skirt at first, the two colours go so well together and I love the sheer material on the skirt part, looks great! x

  11. I actually like the slouchy fit of the dress on you, although I do prefer things to be fitted when I'm wearing them. The colours look great together x

  14. I'm planning to get the next Glossy Box too! Working the Next sale must be horrible, do you have to start really early? Although I have an unsociable hours sort of job I am usually quite lucky with my shifts and get a lot of weekends off.

  15. I think it looks really nice on though, you always seem to find the best things in Primark. Good luck with the next sale, I've always hidden away from them as they're so manic!
