Orange Blossom




Dress - Dorothy Perkins
Belt - Primark
Socks - Dorothy Perkins
Shoes - New Look
Rings - Urban Outfitters

I know I said I would never order clothes online again for fear of Hermes totally screwing up my delivery but when I saw that Dorothy Perkins had 25% off I couldn't resist. This dress is from their limited edition collection which I think might be website only? I love floral patterns & peter pan collars so this dress ticked all the boxes. I also got these really cute polka dot ankle socks. Been looking for some cute white ankle socks for yonks now, so I was happy to find these. Loving my new shoes too. I bought these from New Look yesterday after lusting after them for weeks. I was suckered in by their vintage style. I love the cut of the foot hole (lol technical terms). I always see tons of shoes like these in vintage shops but get put off by the thought of someone else wearing them once upon a time. Maybe its just me hehe.

Another purchase this week was a new tripod. I ordered one the other day as my old one was only 50" so I had to keep bending into weird positions to take photos. This one is 67" and it was an ebay bargain. It only cost £18 which is very cheap for such a high quality tripod. Seriously saved so much time taking photos this morning & will definitely encourage me to blog more often. This is the one I got. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good but cheap tripod.

Anyways this is what I wore today during a visit from my mum. I love it when she comes cos it means I get to go out at night. Tonight me and Andy went to Nandos where we devoured a whole chicken, garlic bread, chips & pitta bread with hummous. God I love Nandos, hadn't been in ages. Can't get enough of the extra hot sauce nom. I'm a total chilli fiend, I've been known to carry around a little bottle of tabasco with me because food is never hot enough! Afterwards we had a few cocktail pitchers but then had to get home for 9pm as my mum had too check into her hotel. Ah well, a date night is a date night even if its only for a few hours.

  8. What a gorgeous dress, I want one.
    I'm not a fan of chili, I'll add a little when cooking as my boyfriend loves it, but I hate too much heat.

  12. That dress is gorgeous, and I love the socks and shoes combo! I was tempted to order some stuff when Dorothy Perkins had their 25% off deal, but I managed to restrain myself for once haha.
    I totaly agree about vintage shoes - clothes are fine but the thought of wearing someone else's shoes creeps me out!
