The World Looks Red

Today- and believe me these photos don't demonstrate this effectively- I had the most amazing good hair day. Okay, let me demonstrate. It looked like this...



Amazing hair right? Well, you'd think this would be a good thing but NO. This was PRESSURE. My outfit had to be awesome. I wanted to wear something that would do justice to the hair. In the end I even had to change my underwear as it seems most of my outfits don't work with a bright blue bra showing through. Anyway, in the end, after about half an hour of browsing my three A4-pages of outfit photos, I went with this. If you read Laura's blog you might recognise it as an interpretation of one of her outfits.

I had two outfits options today. I ordered some new shoes yesterday from New Look- these ones and these ones and they came today. I really wanted to wear my nude ones which this outfit, but I thought I'd make it a little more wintery while I could. And also, the nude ones are a little bit too big. I've ordered a smaller size to come tomorrow so hopefully they'll be better. But they've got a strap so they don't feel too big so I'll have to just see. It's so annoying being between sizes! I'm normally a size 6 in shoes all the time, and it's clothing that's the problem. But it's frustrating with shoes because I know if they're too small I won't wear them! Anyway, this is the dress I wore on my birthday weekend at Edinburgh Zoo but I didn't get a chance to photograph it. This is also the sister jumper to the pink one I wore last week.

Today I got up early and went swimming, and then finished off my American Studies essay and spent the afternoon with my best friend Kayleigh, who I hadn't seen since November! It was so good to catch up with her and just have a bit of a break from work! Tomorrow I am massively on it with my final draft of my English dissertation and that's the plan for most of the rest of the week! I'm going back to uni this weekend and I'm kinda sad cause I love being at home, but my American BFF Michelle is over in the UK this weekend from her study abroad in Paris so I'm going for breakfast with her on Sunday and then Grant and I are going bowling Sunday night so I just have to get everything done by then!

  3. Your hair does look great & I love this outfit! Random, but I almost (ALMOST) bought a nude leather jacket today, like the one you have, but it was a bit too big and I debated. I really want a nice, light colored leather jacket, but alas. I also almost bought a lace dress similar to this one but it was expensive and I wasn't sure it was worth it!! You look great though & now I kind of wish I had bought it... :]

  4. Very dreamy outfit! I love the colours, but I'd end up spilling food all over myself wearing this. I'll just live vicariously through you, hahaha. Your hair looks incredible by the way!

  6. Yet again our same person-ness strikes again!! I'm pretty certain this is the dress I've been lusting over on the Zara website!! Although I don't think I'll be getting it, can't be spending any more money!! But you look amazing as always, love that you toughened it all up with the boots and jacket - I should work on more wintery things while I can, but I just can't help wearing pastels!! I'm going to be fed up of summery wear before summer's even started!!

  9. I know I've already said this but I just love this hair color on you.  Your outfit totally matches your great hair. I am particularly fond of your super cute pearl necklace.

  10. This is so so pretty and perfect! I'm in love with your lace dress. The sweater is adorable layered over it and I really like the bit of edge from your leather jacket and boots. And your hair does indeed look pretty!
