Dress: Primark *** Cardigan: New Look *** Shoes: Love Label *** Bracelet: Primark *** Necklace: River Island *** Belt: Miss Selfridge

Hey everyone! I have been a huge slacker blog-wise lately, whoops. I tend to blog late at night (I almost always update at 11pm or later) and have been going to bed most nights at 9pm so I just slipped out of my routine I suppose, i'm back anyhow! Going to bed earlier has been helping me be a little more productive because I have started working out again! I was pretty bad at keeping up with my routine during the winter and although I am not bothered about losing weight, I really want to work on getting my calves toned up again. I run for an hour every morning when I wake at 6.30/7am and its such a great way to begin the day.

Todays outfit is just a little dress I picked up at Primark a couple of months ago when the store looked ruffle-overdosed (always a good thing in my opinion!) Its one of those dresses with a fitted elastic waist which makes it really awkward for me to wear, such dresses always sit awkwardly around my waist. I think my waist is much higher than the mannequins/models Primark base their dresses on! Paired it with some heels from Love Label (purchased via Littlewoods) I won't lie, these shoes make me feel sexy, something that is incredibly hard for me as I do "cute" better... But my gosh, they sure are the most uncomfortable shoes ever. I still put a smile on my face and tried not to cry when I felt my toes eating each other..the things I do for pretty shoes!

I have decided to sell some of my dresses (and other things...!) I am a little short on money and completely forgot about a bill I have to clear before the end of this month. I had a blog sale in the past but a lot of people couldn't buy things because I was only accepting bank transfers however my friend has agreed to add my email address to her Paypal account so I can use it for this once! I am not 100% sure on which items i'll be selling yet but if anyone wants to buy anything in particular that I have worn on my blog, feel free to shoot me an email or tweet! Otherwise watch this space as i'll probably make a post with all of the items this weekend.

xoxo

  3. The general outfits is very on the sexy side,escaping from the cute side, but not quite loosing it.Hard to explain,but i like it.^^
    I wish i could wear heels often and without troubles,but for once they are mostly uncomfortable and second they are horrible for my spin disease so i try to avoid to wear and buy them to the most i can,but i get to fail many times.LOL.
