i used to know the name of every person I kissed
The fairly observant of you will notice that this is the exact same outfit as the one I wore last week, but with a different colour skirt. In my defence, it wasn't meant to be. I'd planned to wear this top and skirt with my new check shirt but it didn't really work, so I thought I'd just throw a waistcoat over it and my lovely lace up boots :]]
Today my mum and I went shopping for a dress for my Auntie's wedding in July, because I'm not really going to be home now properly until a week before the wedding, so we thought we'd better get it all sorted now. Formal dress shopping is a nightmare!! Everything was either a bit too long, or the wrong colour, or the wrong shape, or just didn't really stand out. I eventually went for a pink one-shoulder number (funnily enough, the first dress I picked up!!), which is quite simple, but lovely. I can't actually find a link to it though!! I'm not too sure yet if it's "the one", but I'm planning on wearing it with bright blue shoes and a bright blue clutch, and maybe silver jewellery. I tried on a few other dresses that I liked but I think this one was the nicest!!
We went into Selfridges, which I loved. All the designer clothes were just magical; I barely wanted to touch them in case I damaged them in any way!! Everything was so beautiful. I felt a bit embarrassed in my primark top and H&M skirt!!

I didn't really buy much else other than some vest tops, some nude and lace socks and a couple of belts (I got a new black one cause this one is clearly falling apart!!) but I had a really lovely day with my Mum, and we had a gorgeous lunch in Giraffe :]]] oh and I got a great bright red lipstick which I can't wait to wear tomorrow :]]]
I've got loads of ideas to write on now, so I really need to get cracking with them before I go back to uni. I really, really don't want to put this blog on hiatus, but I don't really know what to do yet.
You'll be the first to know though :]]]
Do you like today's outfit? Do you prefer it to the black skirt? Let me know if you have any comments or questions :]]]
edit: I also got new glasses today!! well, i picked them. I won't get them for another few weeks yet, but they're pink miu miu ones!! yay!!
