i really like this outfit - and given the self-hate i've been in the midst of lately, that is no mean feat! i have to admit this week is not getting off to the best start, which is a shame since i have had a rather fabulous time off. (which i will post about soon!)
my stomach pains are back and worse than ever, i have had my doctors' appt postponed and it will now be at 7am tomorrow :S
also there are scary decisions to be made at work which is rather stressful..aside from that, i am stressing about money and bills more so than usual, as a result of the uncertainty with work i think, and incidentally have decided to be on a shopping ban for the month of may..which i think makes sense, as it's my bday at the end, so if there's anything i really cant' live without, perhaps it goes on the bday list?! also have added a few things to the blog sale page with some of the things i have cleared out of the wardrobe room recently, i will update as and when i get chance to take pics, back to work has meant back to mental life!
anyway, outfit - i went and me the girls in chester for the day on 'easter saturday' as lis had a lot of wedding gift vouchers which she needed help to spend..i didn't seem to need much help spending, i was excited to go to new look and check out some of the dresses i had bookmarked on the website, but was a little disappointed (although i won't say suprised!) to find that most of them were far too short to be worn in public by someone with such horrible legs..this one i did try on and like, however..the pattern, the cut and the length made me totally fall for it..and i couldn't wait to wear it, so when i was dragged out for catch-up drinks with a friend that evening,. i had the usual shoe dilemma, and then decided i would go all-out with the clashing florals! the topshop clutch bag is ages old, as i believe is the cardi - although shamefully it still had the tags on til this point!
the shoes are irregular choice, and were a gift, the gingham (actually is it gingham or tartan?!) / floral print always makes me feel summery..
