Some days when I’m wearing an outfit I want to blog, I just don’t know how to place myself in photos
and to compensate I end up posing in ridiculous ways, and then those photos end up being the ONLY ones that come out clear.

Today is one of those days.

Wearing another of my Matalan purchases…they now have a sale on and I believe this dress is half the price I paid for it!
What I love most is the neckline and how it’s stitched through the detail so I am not left gaping where my bosom should be, but has failed to flourish. I do have *some* sense of modesty…if my legs are out, my chest remains in the dark.




Yeah, so.

I’m off to work shortly, dosed up on coffee and neurofen for a raging toothache I seem to have. Lesson learnt last night; sweet foods will make it hurt MORE, especially when your teeth are already sensitive to sugar!

Have a great day all

  18. I love the tights! I have sooo many picturs on my camera where I have tried to take pics of my outfits, and FAIL! hence why I rarely put any pictures up. ha.

  24. Loved your last post, I had a thing for Pirates of the Caribbean myself, but my true obsession was all things horsey…just ask my friends! Then I went through a phase where I was in love with all things No Doubt and Gwen Stefani…:/ Love this dress by the way and hope your toothache gets better soon 🙂 I’m happy you also appreciate the Buckfast beauty! xxx
