Scarf Prints And Studs

Boy am I glad it's Friday!  I cannot wait for a lie in tomorrow, it's going to be heaven.  I've been cooing over this dress in Topshop for a few weeks, lovingly stroking the silky fabric whilst ignoring Gray telling me how ugly it is... I gave in last week and took it to the changing rooms and instantly knew it had to be mine!  I love how it feels and the pop of colour to my recently very black wardrobe.  I have teamed it with a slouchy studded jacket that I picked up from Warehouse in the sale and feel nicely smart.  I actually wore this outfit out to a party last Saturday but think it works just as well for work. 

My hair is very long for me at the moment, it's annoying the hell out of me!  It's also all one length as I had to grow down the side bits for my wedding beehive.  I'm getting it cut next week and it cannot come soon enough! I have had a very similar hair cut for the past 15 or so years - it just varied in length and colour - do you stick to a style that you know suits you or are you more adventurous with your hair than me?

Apologies for all the crap you can see down the side of the wardrobe, the spare room still hasn't quite recovered from being turned into a storage unit for the past six months!  I am getting there but still need to find a home in our flat for a few things, how do I even have so much STUFF?!



Dress: Topshop
Jacket: Warehouse

Boots: Topshop

These are my absolute favourite boots right now, so comfy and the gold heel makes them stand out.  I have had so many compliments on what other wise would be just another pair of black boots.  I really, really want to get a back up pair but they have sold out online and I haven't been able to find a pair of 5's in any of my local stores so if you spot a pair please let me know and I will love you forever!

  11. Sarah you look lovely as always ! I can completely relate with the hair issue, I go to the hairdressers filled with ideas and pictures in my head of how i want it. Alas, to come out with the same hair but slightly shorter. I am determined to get a blunt fringe ! I will not be swayed xx Catherine xx

    1. Haha! YES!! Do it, although I had a blunt fringe cut in once which I loved at the time but looking back at it it wasn't my finest moment :( Maybe buy one of those clip in fringes from eBay to make sure it suits you first, it takes ages to grow back afterwards
