Top / Shorts / Shoes: New Look *** Bracelet: Primark

Almost everything in this outfit is from New Look (yes, again!) I really love shopping there because I don't have to worry about sizing. A lot of high street brands stop at UK 16 however their regular line goes up to size UK 18 and i'm a 16-18 so I almost always fit into the things I like! It helps that they frequently have 10/15/20% discounts - I love savings!
I wanted this top for a long time before I actually got to purchase it, it was sold out and someone returned one in my size (don't you just love when something like that happens?!) Prettiness aside, its kind of an awkward length on me - too long to wear with skirts but too short to wear as a dress. I am not sure how else to wear it so any suggestions are most welcome!
For a long time I was very worried about wearing shorts this tight. Its nice to be able to throw them on and my main concern is what to wear with them, rather than being worried about the outline of my girl-parts showing or my bum looking too big! Life is too short to worry about such things, I understand that its not always easy to see that - but its true!

I have decided to start watermarking my pictures as you probably seen above. Just the close-up ones as they seem to pop up on a lot of different blogs/websites (tumblr, weheartit, etc) I don't mind people using my pictures but when they don't provide a simple credit link back, it gets quite frustrating. I am flattered people like my pictures that much but then I see girls using them and linking back to their blogs, which is the main thing that bothers me. So what do you guys think of the watermark? Is it distracting? I did try to keep it elegant, simple and small but readable.

Lastly hello to all of the new people who have followed my blog recently! I was reading back over my old entries today and I had 1800 followers friends when my blog turned one in May, now its November and there is 2800...wow! I am so glad that people still enjoy my blog and it continues to grow, it has become much more than I ever dreamed of. I can't promise that i'll be updating every single day (well, unless blogging becomes my job someday, until then you'll have to settle for 2-3 times a week!) but I can promise that a lot of thought and work goes into all of my entries. I only ever post about things I genuinely want to share. I am proud to look back on my blog and know that I was 100% happy and interested when I wrote every entry on here. /mushy-ness

  4. I think the watermarking is fine, I didn't even notice! I would do exactly the same if someone was using my pictures without crediting them back to my blog.
    & Aww, well done for how far your blog has come, you should be really proud!

  25. Those shoes are absolutely lovely! I must admit, I think your pictures are fantastic... I really wish I could take self-portraits like you do.

    The watermark's a good idea, but like someone above said, it might be better to put it closer to the center of the photo (that way, it can't be cropped out).
