Blazer: River Island *** Playsuit: River Island *** Ring: Primark *** Shoes: Primark

A little change from the cream and nude color palettes from my last few outfit posts! I'm not a huge lover of playsuits, I have a belly and they aren't the most flattering thing on my shape (apple!) However, I fell in love with this one when I spotted it in River Island and I wasn't going to let my belly get in the way of me owning it! I had purchased the blazer a few weeks beforehand (also from River Island) and although I love it, i'm having a hard time matching it with outfits. I really like how it looks with the playsuit though.
If I could, I would spend all of my money in River Island. Its definitely my favourite store. Although some of the things aren't my taste (eg. the items covered in gems/sequins) I can always find at least ten things I want from there! I just wish their online store would ship here because I rarely get to shop in their store and the selection on ASOS is rather limited. Hopefully one day!

I just wanted to apologize for being such a bad blogger during the last month or two. Blogging is only a hobby for me, but I still feel awful when I don't update often! I'm going to start posting more regularly again and hopefully bring back posts like weekend wishlist, etsy pretties, etc. as I miss doing those posts!

I created a new tumblr blog yesterday. I spent most of the evening working on the theme, i'm quite happy with how it turned out! I'm even thinking about changing the layout on here to something similar. If anyone would like to follow me on tumblr you can view my page here, I will follow everyone back. My tumblr will probably just consist of photographs and quotes that I like, and maybe the occasional personal post. I made a couple of free themes here too. Enjoy!

Lastly, my blog reached over 2700 followers recently. Just...wow. I am extremely grateful to everyone who follows my blog, it has grown more than I ever could have dreamed of and I consider each of you very dear friends rather than "followers". I am planning a giveaway for when I reach 3000 followers. I was going to have one for reaching 2700, but I think it will be better to just wait and have a big one! Again, thank you ♥

xoxo

  30. Cute rompers (we call playsuits as rompers here in the United States), and I also like the lace-up wedge peep-toe oxfords. The blazer is lovely as well to compliment the rest of the outfit. And speaking as a fellow blogger, one is NOT a bad blogger just because one doesn't post often. I just tell people to post whenever you feel like it. "Pearls, Lace, and Ruffles" is still a blog I enjoy coming to again and again to see your wonderful posts. So keep up the great work!

  42. I really love the playsuit on you. The pattern/colour/style reminds me of a blouse I got recently from New Look, but then I realised you got the playsuit from River Island. Anyway, you look gorgeous.
