Every fire is a lesson learned however much it's burned

Dress: H&M. Scarf: Primark. Boots: Primark. Bag: Matalan. Jumper: Topshop.

Call me an eager beaver, but I actually bought this dress and these booties earlier today whilst on a mad shopping spree! And the funny thing, is that I'm not even going anywhere tonight. Except to my kitchen to bake some cakes, for our indoor picnic tonight.
I wanted the Topshop/Primark t-shirt dress, but as usual I always miss the opportunity! Instead I found this in H&M which to be honest, fits me 10x better. And I prefer the shorter sleeves (I'm weird like that!) I also picked up the boots, because I am such a boot whore. I wear them all year round, and I literally love them.. At £18 I just couldn't say no. It was meant to be. I know it.
I even wore a scarf today which is totally strange for me. And to make my day even stranger, I ended up buying some black trousers. Blimey, not sure who's coffee I drank this morning... It certainly wasn't mine. 
But I sure hope I drink it again soon.!

  8. I love the purple scarf with the grey dress, great colour combo :) I have the Primark version of the grey dress and it's really unflattering on me...I think this one would be much better!

  9. Such a cute girly in this dress and I'm an ankle boot whore too. Why wear uncomfotable shoes when you can wear fur-lined boots? I've been searching for this grey-marl type dress too after deciding the Topshop one was too seethrough for me to handle - maybe an H&M trip is in order! ox

  24. Great outfit - and I love those boots, totally going to seek them out at Primark at the weekend! I'm an all-year-round boot wearer too, when I went to Primark last month they had none at all and I was starting to think I was maybe the only person looking for boots in July, haha!

  31. I'm glad I'm not the only eager beaver! As soon as I get home I'm ripping bags open and prancing around in new clothes. I love this dress, mostly I love it's length I look at every skirt/dress now and think 'is this work appropriate... can I bend over without flashing my bum to the world' this dress I'd say covers (quite literally) this requirement :P x
