chasing me all over town..

dress: dorothy perkins
heels: matalan
cardigan: tu clothing
Gosh, I look particularly awful in these photos. I have been feeling pretty rotten for the past few days; tired, run down and feverish, which I am not massively happy about, but hopefully it will pass soon as I don't really have the time to be ill.

These shoes were a pair from Matalan recently, they have a few other colours as well and now seem to be half price on the website - I might go back for a black pair in that case!

I thought these would be the right colour to pick out some of the detail in the print of this dress; I still really love the cute little perfume bottles and it's acted as a reminder to me to put "find new scent" on my to-do list for the weekend. I've been wearing the same perfume for several years now and whilst I still like it, I'm coming to the end of my last bottle and wonder if it may be time for a change. I guess I may as well have a look in Boots if I pop into town at some point, now that my family seem to have stomped all over my plans for a shopping trip to the Bullring on Sunday - booo.

I guess it gives me a day to catch up with things around the house and run a few errands. I also have quite a lot of sewing to do before my next lesson, which is scheduled for next week, so perhaps avoiding the shops is a good thing, after all!

Anyone got any exciting weekend plans?


  1. May as well get the black pair is what I say. Hope you feel better but you look as lovely as ever to me. Car booting and damson picking this Sunday! xx

  2. Those shoes are amazing! Hope you feel better soon =)

  3. Poor you, hope you feel better soon! By the way, the blouse arrived and your letter is already in the post! I contemplated that dress as well!!!

  4. Hope you feel better soon! You don't look awful in these pictures.
    I say go for it with the black heels. The dress print is adorable! I don't know how you can own only 1 perfume! I have a ridiculous collection, it would be nice to have a "signature scent" though.
    Damn for shopping trip plans falling through! There's always the weekend after though?
    My weekend isn't too exciting, just a quiet one relaxing before the start of a hectic final year at uni! xx

  5. I don't think you look awful at all! And you've made me put Matalan on my list of "must visit next time I'm out shopping" places - I haven't been in there for ages, but those shoes are gorgeous!

    As for perfume, I have tons of the stuff (most sent as review samples, to be fair) but I always wear the same one: I like having a signature scent! I'm trying my best to work my way through the rest so they don't go to waste, and I DO like them, but every time I wear one I end up wishing I was wearing my usual scent!

  6. You certainly don't look awful, I love that dress its gorgeoux
