panda print dress: h! by henry holland @ Debenhams
houndstooth loafers : matalan

Apologies for the appalling title, I can't seem to remember what day it is this week, let alone find space in my brain for anything else. It's definitely been one of those weeks I'm happy to see the back of.

I can't even begin to explain how tired I am lately. I'm still having such trouble sleeping, nothing seems to be working and I have no idea why it takes me so long to get to sleep each night. I'm conscious I don't want it to cut into my swimming schedule, so I've been still getting up at the same time to be able to fit in a swim before heading to work to start my day, but I think things are taking their toll. I guess I need to leave myself a weekend free to catch up on some sleep. There's just always too much to do.

Anyway, I finally got around to wearing this panda print dress, which I bought a little while ago in Leeds at some 20% off event in Debenhams. I tried it on with a pair of my trusty work heels, but then decided the hemline was probably too short for that and therefore a pair of flat shoes would be best. This Matalan pair are on the verge of giving up on me, I think, so I need to have a look for a replacement pair. It's funny because, although I like them, I always feel a bit weird wearing them out of the house as they're just so much like slippers. I wonder if these would do the trick...?


  1. The panda dress is awesome! I was looking at the H by Henry Holland collection in the Debenhams in Bath yesterday and there are some lovely pieces there at the moment. I also know the feeling you've had this week...the first fortnight back at uni has been hectic and stressful! Hope next week is better and yes my Mum is moving whilst I'm at uni which is not really ideal but it'll be a nice surprise to come back to a new place. - Tasha xxx

  2. I love that dress and it really suits you!

  3. Yeah I wish this dress was a little longer, I have it too. I don't know what it is about sleeves that make me look so ridiculous, but because I liked the panda print so much, I kept it. Must be something in the air re the sleep thing-I'm absolutely shattered, slept until 11am today which will hopefully get me caught up. Hope you're feeling brighter soon x

  4. Know how you feel, I want the freshers to all go back home now. STRESS. Love the print on this dress, more clothes should have panda print x

  5. Love the print on the dress! It looks amazing on you :)
