You're not as brave as you were at the start

Red and white checked midi dress -  Asos
White plimsols - Vans
Pink staw bag - TK Maxx borrowed from the mother.
Red plastic watch - Toywatch

The one and only set of outfit pictures my boyfriend agreeed to take. To be honest i've lived in the dress during the hot days. It was a complete bargain brought from Leather Lane market (fast becoming my favourite place to shop) for only £10. The market has bundles of Topshop, Asos, New Look and Zara clothes - some are even current season. They just have the labels cut out of them. But if you shop as much as me you'll where they come from without the labels! I may have spent a small fortune there yesterday after I got paid. My mum very kindly lent me her holiday basket from TK Maxx. It was perfect to fit all the daily junk in as well as three pairs of shoes on the way home to ensure my suitcase wasn't over the limt!

I'm off out to catch the train to meet up with all my blogger babes in Lemington spa for a weekend filled with Wagamamas, alcohol and afternoon tea. Sounds like the perfect weekend eh?

Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you may do!

Holiday Outfits Part Two

The title says it all...

001: Burnt orange chiffon midi dress - Topshop (RIP my mum has ruined it in the wash)
002: Boat patterned white cotton dress - Asos
003: White and navy polka dot midi dress: Topshop
004:Orange polka dot midi dress - Asos
005: White chiffon pleated midi dress - Topshop
006: Tropical floral peplum pencil dress - Asos

Also sorry about the poor quailty of some of these photos - I didn't realise how rubbish they were until they were uploaded and was in too much of a rush to stuff my face to take a replacement! The joys of being all-inclusive!

Holiday Outfits Part One

Getting my boyfriend to take pictures of me is like drawing blood from a stone. You'd think i'd asked him to support Manchester City instead of United the way he moans. So I decided to document my evening outfits on Instagram. To be fair you wouldn't want to have seen me sans make up and sweaty during the day!

001: Hawaiian floral cut out dress - Asos
002: Baby blue cotton sun dress - Asos
003: Red and white checked midi dress - Asos via Leather Lane Market

004: Chiffon green polka dot maxi dress - Asos
005: Blue gingham wiggle dress - Asos
006: Coral chiffon dipped hem dress - New Look

I'll do the second part in a few days - I don't want to overwhelmed you all. As you can see I stuck to my midi favourites. My Asos collection seems to be getting out of control! 

My photoshop skills leave a lot to be desired I know!
