1+1

10/05/2013


what i'm wearing:
fashion union floral dress*
fashion union tan biker jacket*
xen-tan morrocan tan*
h&m leather court shoes
initial disc necklace
MK watch

i've changed where i take my outfit posts as i'm now taking them with a tripod and it's not even funny how much easier it is, why i haven't invested in one until now is beyond me. the one i bought was the hama 62 from amazon which you can check out here if you'd like. the only peeve is that the lighting is a little off and it makes my fake tan on my legs look patchy which is really isn't at all as xen-tan is easily the best fake tan i've ever used and i was wearing it in my outfit posts last week too.

can you believe this dress is only £25?! it's bloody crazy, it's the most beautiful thing ever. after working ten days continuously i have the whole weekend off and it feels amazing. i'm going to make sure i make the most of it by getting dressed up, dragging liam out and getting my date night on. i may as well make the most of my freedom, right? i decided the first time i'd wear it dressed up with some nude heels (currently my favourite pair of heels at the mo) but it's definitely something i can see myself wearing during the day too with some brown ankle boots and a cardigan. it's the perfect amount of floaty and i love that it has a small plunge at the back as it just makes it such a flattering shape. out of ten i'd probably give this dress a solid nine as i just never want to take it off when i have it on. i'm wearing an eight and it's super comfortable. hope you like :)

p.s the title is because i can't stop listening to beyoncé's 1+1 at the moment, the loveliest song.

  32. Gorgeous as ever and that dress is just lovely on you - you really suit blue! x

  33. The dress looks awesome on you, I love the blue, it's my favourite colour (and aqua too, I love the ocean!). The high neckline suits you really well and makes it look really fashion-y. But my fave is the close-up with your hair. That's my fave part of all your posts, your perfect curls! It reminds me of some of the pic I see on Pinterest :)

    I have still never used a tripod, I wonder if I should invest.... At the moment my boyfriend takes my photos but I used to just balance my camera on trees, rocks, my car's side mirrors haha!
