The One Where I Dress Like A Real Girl


Another day, another bit of feeling spendy on ASOS. There’s that one day at the start of each month where you’re convinced you have unlimited money, and before you know it your wardrobe is full of shiny new things and your food cupboard, well it’s packed with baked beans and you can forget that trip to the Greek Islands you’ve been “saving” up for. Mum, if you’re reading this, your values of “money is there to be spent, darling” are questionable…

Over the past year and a bit I’ve become a total hat person – the concept of which I find completely unappealing, but at the same time I can’t help but love wearing them, and can’t stop buying more. You’ll understand when you see this weekends video. Whilst we’re on the topic of things I would usually find completely unappealing – I give you this Topshop Midi skirt. I feel like my Nan dressed me (and must stop saying that in front of people who are easily offended), I look a little like my Nan dressed me, but I decided to go against my initial feelings and purchased this for a wedding a week or so back. I wore it with an off the shoulder crop top (it was a casual affair) and couldn’t help but love it and felt very girly indeed (so far from my daily sporting of leather jackets/biker boots). So I’ve made it my mission to find ways to incorporate it in to my everyday wardrobe – slouchy crop jumpers, hats and smart/casual shoes. If only Nala wouldn’t stop trying to chew the hem. *Sigh*

    This is SUCH a beautiful outfit! I love this black hat trend as well, but my hair becomes completely flat even after thirty minutes of wearing one so I don't wear hats as often as I would like to.

    God don't you wish that payday feeling lasted a bit longer. It's payday and your dancing around, making online orders and 2 days later you are surrounded by packaging looking at your online account thinking "whose robbed me?!" Glad it's not just me.
