05.02 colour

Woke up this morning to the sun shining for what feels like the first time in ages, so I decided it was about time I injected a little more colour in to my outfit and dug out the brightest tights I could find.




I also decided to make the most of the ground being dry and ditched the boots in favour of something a bit more girly and delicate.

Roll on spring!

I also have three necklaces up for sale, at the price of Β£4 for UK people, and Β£5 for overseas.

  2. amazing dress. amazing tights. amazing. just amazing.
