Dress/belt: River Island *** Bag: Primark *** Accessories: Primark

I bought this dress a couple of months ago and didn't wear it as I was unsure if I would keep it or not. Glad I did now because I absolutely love it. The material is thick enough to keep you warm but doesn't look too "wintery". The perfect spring dress, for spring in western Europe anyways! The belt is a teeny bit too small for me which you can probably tell, but I expected that because I can never fit into belts in River Island! I will have to keep a look out for a new one to replace it.
The handbag is a very old purchase, at least four years old. It was one of the first bags I bought from Primark when my handbag obsession began. Its both wonderful and horrible, wonderful because its so big and roomy and horrible for the very same reasons! I tend to fill my handbags with junk when they are this big. Not purposely, but its easier to throw a leaflet or ten in there and tell yourself "i'll take that out later", and then you never actually do!

For the past week or so my throat has been really sore. After trying to avoid it for as long as possible, I went to see a doctor on Thursday evening. She didn't really know what was wrong, unfortunately. Apparently it looked "just a little bit red, nothing major" and it "might be strep, but it mightn't be"...so i'm still not sure what it is. Aside from the sore throat, I could barely open my mouth, my ears hurt when I swallow and the light hurts my eyes...not a great combination! It meant the best place for me was my bed. The antibiotics are beginning to work thankfully. I get sick far too often!

Did all of you ladies have a good Easter? I hope so! Judging by my FB newsfeed, i'm the only girl under 25 who didn't go out drinking/clubbing this weekend. I am beginning to feel like an 80 year old...I much prefer quiet nights in these days. Netflix has taken over my life since it launched here!

    Try Nurofen plus it's what helped me slightly when I had Strep, oh and lots of ice-cream :)

  15. Well, I'm a guy OVER 25 that doesn't drink or go to the nightclub. This dress is as beautiful as you are. Coral has really caught on as a trendy color. The touches of coral and these pearly accents make for a lovely outfit. Very nice, Dee!

    I also hope you feel better soon. As much as I love your blog, I also become very concerned for you. You are a beautiful lady with a beautiful blog. My best wishes are with you in all aspects of life and with all that you do. I hope you take care and get well soon. Much love to you from here in the United States.

  20. Love the colour of the dress on you, suits you perfectly. I hope you feel better soon, keeping my fingers crossed. I get what you mean with preferring quiet nights in. For my 21st birthday I had a tea party with my family. No night out needed, it gets dull after a while

  23. That dress is gorgeous! I love the colour! I'm in Australia and looking for something similar for approaching winter. It's funny how the purchases you make they you never think you'll wear can end up being the ones you love!

  24. Good choice keeping the dress, you're right, it really suits you! I love how simple this outfit is, yet it's so flattering. Gutted the bag is old, I could do with one in my own wardrobe haha :)
