DRESS: new look | CARDIGAN: h&m

These are two of my buys from Monday. I'm pretty sure that almost every blogger owns this Leopard peter pan dress by now but I love it, and for £10 I couldn't not buy it! I've been wanting a tan or burnt orange cardigan for a few weeks now and the fact that this one has suede elbow pads makes it my new favourite thing ever! I always find H&Ms cardigans to be really tight fitting, whereas I prefer loose fit cardigans, so I had to buy it in a larger size.

Thank you for all your comments yesterday. In the end we went to Frankie and Bennys for dinner and then went to see The Mechanic and really enjoyed it. If you like any of Jason Stratham's other films then you'll enjoy this. The ending was quite predictable but it's still worth going to see.

For some reason my hair always looks really red in my photos. It's actually not very red at all in real life, for some reason my camera just makes it look that way. I have been considering dying my hair with a red dye though, because I quite like it!

  2. You'd really suit red. You've got a beautiful complexion and red hair would compliment it. You'd look like florence welch :D

    That cardigan is awesome too :) your blog is gorgeous.

    Jess - God, I'd love to look like Florence Welch! ♥ I wasn't thinking of going gingery red though, just a browny red. Thank you x

  15. The dress looks ace on you, glad you got it. I love the cardigan. I tried on the jumper version but didnt see the cardi. I bought some leather elbow patches from eBay a while back but havent gotten round to sewing them onto a cardi yet.

    As always I have got serious hair envy, you look gorgeous in these photos xx
