Here it is, my first outfit post of 2014. I really want to try a bit harder this year to document my outfits on this blog. In the past when I've done them they have always been well received so I may as well start doing them!

Ever have those days when you're like 'I really need some pringles right now? Well that is what happened late yesterday afternoon. After a day of housework and reading - I finally finished the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, Tom and I set out on a little walk to get pringles... and mini eggs.... and brownie mix.... When the temptation is there you just can't day no!  I decided to have a handbag switch around and revert back to my much loved Modalu Pippa handbag - My first ever BIG competition win. I love how the leather is getting more worn so it's a lot more slouchy than when I first got it! I had a good sort out of my bags on Saturday actually. Making sure they were all in their dust bags, neatly lined up in my wardrobe! I was spurred on to do this after watching Fleurs video of her handbag collection. I realised I wasn't treating them well just being thrown up on the top shelf! Now they are all neatly in a row looking all pretty! 

My dress was a purchase I made just before Christmas from ASOS - It has now gone into the sale for £19. I really like it. The smock style isn't too oversized which I like as I think those styles make people look a bit ridiculous! It's one of those dresses that I can just throw on for any occasion which I really like. I need more dresses like that in my wardrobe so if you know of any others link me up in the comments. 

What did you do at the weekend?

Much Love,

  6. The dress is gorgeous! I love your handbag too, can't believe you won it, how lucky! Also what did you think of the final Hunger Games book? When I read it I felt a little disappointed at the ending, but I did appreciate that it was done well, your thoughts? :)

  8. Ha sorry but your comment gave me a laugh. I'm 4ft11 so not tall at all. I did size down for a more fitted style and maybe I washed it too hot so it's shrunk and gone shorter... Woops! X

  14. LOL! I always thought that you are not tall but this dress got me confused! It must have shrunk in the wash, I am just 5ft tall, so we have similar height :P

  15. I think I saw this on another blog and I reaaaally like it, this post has just reminded me how much. It reminds me a little of some of the smocks American Apparel were selling last year, I got a floral one which is very similar to this but in green and blue florals. This makes a lovely winter floral!

    That bag is a beaut, I love a bit of slouchy leather!
