Stonecutters made them from stones...

This post’s TUNE comes from Midlake.  Sometimes, some songs just make you sigh because they are so beautiful; this song makes me do just that!  I absolutely love it!!  Back in the day when we all loved our Myspace page this was my page song, and whenever I listen to it, it reminds me of those times, ahhhh....
Please have a little listen to this song, you can do so here, and you can have a look at their website here.

Now, back to the clothes...





Dress: Primark (old)
Shirt: Tesco (old)
Tights: Primark (£2.50)
Shoes: New Look (old)
Initial Necklace: Dorothy Perkins (£2.00 sale)
Coat: Primark (£20.00 sale)
Scarf: Select (£5.00)
Bag:TOPSHOP (old)

I bought this dress a while back and hadn’t worn it until now.  As it’s a tunic I didn’t want to wear it on its own because it’s a bit chilly what with the no arms and I thought it was a bit too boring to just stick a cardi on top, but then inspiration struck and I thought, “Oooh I’ll stick that shirt under there” and voila!  I’ve also had these tights kicking around for a while, seen as I bought them to go with the dress they were destined to spend a long time in my draw, but now they have finally seen daylight, yey!  Admittedly it does look slightly like I have been severely sun burned, but I do like it so I’m wearing them!  

This coat I found in a sale in Primark, I was ridiculously happy, ecstatic some might say!  I have been looking for a jacket like this since I fancied the one I saw Lyzi wearing from being little (this posthere), her blog was my “Blog of the Month” in January, you can check out the post here.  The material is a bit itchy and it’s a bit lighter than the colour that I wanted but I absolutely love this coat and may proceed to live in it for the next few weeks...

I do love all the little details in this outfit, the print on the dress is so cute with the little doggy print and the shirt already came with these fancy little collar tips, I’m sure I’ll wear this shirt in another outfit post, so you can see the other detail of it.  And finally I do love my little initial necklace, It’s so cute and dainty, however, when I got it I didn’t realise it had a little knot in the chain which I cannot for the life of me get out, any tips?  You can see my post on this necklace here.

I wore this outfit on the weekend when I went with my boyfriend to book our holiday, I’m off to Goa in March, I cannot wait, I’m so so excited :) It’s going to be baking hot, but its practically guaranteed I will not be coming home with a tan, I just don’t tan :(
Is anyone going anywhere nice this year?

p.s. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve dyed my hair red, I’m starting to get used to it, but it was a bit of a shock of how dark it went, I normally try any keep my hair relatively light.  To be fair, it was a lighter red to begin with, however the dye I used (Olia – the new one in the black box) did not cover my hair properly and left loads of patches where it just did not take at all.  I have been dying my hair for years and know exactly how to cover it properly, so a word of warning, never use this dye! Although the colour was nice, so it’s gutting I had to dye over it, but brown and ginger patches is not a good look...

What you reckon, like the colour?

Stay Sexy,

  3. I love this outfit and how you have styled it. I really wish that dress wasn't an old one, I would snap it up if it was current Primark stock! Your hair looks lovely that colour, very rich and shiny. So jealous that you are going to Goa, I bet you can't wait! Don't worry, I don't tan either, I have to take stocks of Xen Tan with me so I dare to wear my bikini (I can't face it when I am pale) and Xen Tan looks so natural and is easy to slap on at night before going to bed, you wake up with a lovely summer glow :)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend :)

    1. Aw thank you :) You should keep an eye out in the Primark sales which I seem to see everywhere at the moment, you never know. I am so so excited :) I may take up your tip and get some of that fake tan on the go, I don't want to frighten everyone with the glare coming off of me because of my daz white skin haha
