stumps for legs

08/05/2014


what i'm wearing:
urban outfitters leopard print sunglasses via depop

happy thursday everyone! i'm in a particularly good mood today because it's pay day tomorrow, yaaaaay. there is no greater feeling as a working gal getting paid as it means simple things like filling your petrol tank and buying snacks can now be done without thinking "oh god, how much have i got left?". also as i treat myself quite a fair amount shall we say with my last pay i have now being living a little bit like a pauper for the last couple of weeks. which basically means beans on toast for dinner every night. as summer is slowly coming i thought let's get the legs out and pop some shades on. i bagged this dress when ASOS had a 25% off last week and i'm glad i did as it's pretty much sold out now. my only problem is as it's petite it's super short so i have been to be very aware with all movements in a bid to not expose anything. this outfit was quite festival inspired (of course i'd swap the sandals for boots) and at festivals where the only liquids you can get your hands on are alcohol of bottles of water, you sometimes desire a little bit of flavour. i love drinking juice anyway but at a festival you can't carry around a huge bottle of juice to try and manoeuvre into a tiny bottle which is why robinsons squash'd is an absolute genius idea. as you can see from the images below it's tiny enough to carry around with you in your bag and you can just whip it out and squeeze a bit into some water and voilà you have juice! anyway i hope you like the outfit, let me know. :)

*thank you to iris-worldwide for providing me with the robinsons squash'd and £30 credit towards a bag of my choice on ASOS*
