got my mind made up..

dress : laura ashley
cardigan : h&m
shoes : topshop
This morning, for the first time since I can remember, I was told I looked nice. As usual, all I see when I look in the mirror are the things I hate, but I was sort of glad, as I'd been trying to find a dress to wear which wasn't going to need an iron, but once I'd seen this Laura Ashley one on the rail I couldn't think of anything else I wanted to wear, so I got the ironing board out at about 6.30 this morning and went for the speediest pressing-session I could.

 Weirdly, although I bought a black version at the same time, (about 4yrs ago!) I'd never worn this cardigan, but I figured it would go ok with the colours in the print of the dress. The dress is from last year's Laura Ashley collection as well, but it's still one of my favourites. And as for the shoe boots? They're so favourite, I bought them twice (well, sort of)! I love patent boots! Anyone else see something in the wardrobe and decide that nothing else will do?

I can't really believe how quickly this week is going. Slow down, world, I have too much to do!


  1. I LOVE the nautical theme here x

  2. REalllly? People don't tell you you look nice?? I would tell you everyday if I worked with you! I always think it's important to tell people when they look nice- everyone I do it to is always really pleased! I think this outfit is absolutely gorgeous on you-that cardigan is the perfect shape to match the fab dress!x

  3. You DO look nice, I'm surprised people don't say it more, you've got a unique sense of style which I love! Good old Laura Ashley too :)

  4. Hey dear I really like your blog! What about following each other? Also on bloglovin, facebook and even on Lookbook if you want...just let me know :3 <3


  5. You look lovely, your dress is gorgeous too. I totally understand what you mean about wanting to wear something that doesn't need ironing. I hate ironing and I'm on a mission to fill my wardrobe with things that never need ironing so I never have to iron again! x

  6. I love the dress, looks really pretty and flatters you wonderfully, especially with the shoes and the cardigan. xx

  7. Oh my gosh I adore that dress! I wish I could afford all the lovely dresses from LA : ) Yeah I'm very mood dictated when it comes to dressing and if I get something in my head, nothing else will do. Also i hate ironing, especially for one garment, so all my dresses are crushed most of the time!
