Dress: Topshop *** Top: Dunnes *** Belt: Dunnes *** Boots: Primark *** Bracelets: Primark/Forever 21 *** Ring: Topshop

Ah!! It looks like I only have one, oddly shaped leg! I always stand in the most awkward positions. This is a non-smiling OOTD for once, not purposely..my battery died and I didn't have time to wait for it to charge so I could take better pictures. I found this tunic (which i'm wearing underneath) in Topshop recently. It was hiding behind lots of blouses but the pleated mustard skirt peeking out caught my eye. It was love at first sight, well almost. The top part of the tunic is made of this awful cheap/thin material, even wearing a nude bra underneath looks ridiculous. I will use it for layering until I find a mustard colored tank top. I bought this pretty dragonfly print top in Dunnes last week for €9! I love the little dragonflies printed all over and the peterpan collar is always a good thing. Paired them with my worn-out, old, favorite pair of boots which are from Primark two or three years ago. I would have preferred to wear brogues but the boots were a better option as I spent a lot of time in the garden which is a bit of a mess right now!

We had fencing put up all around the back of the house which makes me a little bit sad! I was looking forward to hanging out by the little creek more often, especially during the summer. I liked to sing the theme song from "Dawsons Creek" while I was down there! /dork. I wanted to spend time with the horses too but the garden looks much neater now. We had a choice between a metal or wooden frame and although the wooden one looks much better and would be darling with a coat of white paint, the problem we had with woodlice has put me off having wood around the garden! The garden is covered with ivy in most places so today was spent trying to remove it. I also found an apple tree at the bottom of the garden which i'm thrilled about! My favorite thing about going to my grandma's house as a little girl was walking through the fields in the countryside to go picking apples and berries so i'll get to re-live my childhood somewhat.

I was sorting through my vintage cameras and realized they don't get enough love lately, so I took out a couple today and snapped some photographs. I miss shooting film so much, its a lot more rewarding. I think I may turn the little room that the previous tenants used as a ~worship room~ into a darkroom, it would be perfect.

I just wanted to say that I haven't been feeling so great lately, and if my negative nancy-ness begins to rub off a little on my blog entries, then i'm sorry! The birth control my doctor put me on last month for my hair problem has been a rollercoaster ride. Some days I will be fine, others I just cry and feel depressed for no reason. I feel bad for the people who are around me in real life when I get my little mood swings! I don't think it has improved my hair (a lot fell out this morning) but i'm just hoping it will and its taking longer to work for whatever reason. I began my second pack yesterday so fingers crossed that it will begin to help soon.

Lastly, I gave my blog a mini-mini-makeover today! I changed the banner to remove "a fatshion blog" and added some little dots as the font looked a little bit lonely all by itself! I also moved my entries towards the center a little more, changed the divider between posts and changed the background of the titles on my sidebar to match the divider. Just lots of little changes but I think it looks much better! Hopefully you all do too. Have a great night ♥

xoxo

  32. You are so gorgeous! I love your outfit too the colours are just beautiful together, you've got such a nice unique vintage style! I hope you feel better soon when my friend went on birth control to sort her period out it really messed with her emotions for a while but after about 3/4 months it did settle down so hopefully yours will too, although there's always other types you could switch to!

    Lovely blog I'm inspired by all of it and I'm following now so I look forward to more!

  40. Mustard is SUCH an underrated colour hah ;) And I adore Dunnes.. I think they have some quiet good pieces at a reasonable price but aren't really seen as a 'high street' store by many people for some reason!
