Dress: Awear *** Bracelet: Primark *** Shoes: Dunnes

I wasn't going to post this outfit because I wasn't too fond of how the pictures came out but it has been too long since I posted an outfit on here! I haven't had a spraytan in a while and i'm currently using an instant shimmer tan which has made me a bright shade of orange it seems! I actually photoshopped the color of my skin in these pictures to try and make it look a little less neon. I don't think it looks quite so bad in person but it definitely doesn't photograph too well.
The dress i'm wearing is one from my last post. Its probably my least favourite of the three, mostly because of the bust area and how it makes me look almost-pregnant when I don't hold it out. That said, I do love it in its own way and the stripes and bow were too cute to pass up. Threw on my trusty old Dunnes flats with it which have definitely been worth the €10 euros or so that I paid for them last year. They go with so many of my outfits! The bracelet is a recent Primark purchase. I don't always like charm bracelets but (of course!) the pearls won me over.

My new laptop arrived last week and i'm still getting used to it. It has been such a pain to try and get all of my programs, fonts, etc. installed again but I am slowly getting there. Its weird (in a good way!) to have a laptop that doesn't resemble a large rectangular box, my old one was far too outdated.

Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far.

  7. So simple yet so stunning. Also FYI you dont look anywhere near "almost-pregnant"! The charm bracelet could certainly be passed off from somehwhere other than primark!

  9. This dress is beautiful and you look great in it...but i know what you mean about the "almost pregnant look", i have a lot of tops like that. They are pretty...but they just don't look right.
