For once I'm updating this before loobook! Largely because I'm entirely stuck for a title and cannot think of anything to call this look when I upload it, but I'm thinking, I'm thinking.

Cardigan - H&M
Dress - New Look
Shoes - Primark

I always think it's quite amusing I dress like this now considering I was such a tomboy growing up. When I was around 10 I hated the thoughts of dresses, skirts or anything pretty - I wonder what my 10 year old self would think of me now!
I don't think I started wearing dresses regularly until I was around 15 or 16. Until then I was purely  a jeans girl. I've come a long way in just a few years!

I was extremely bored last night and created a little poorly drawn gif of my outfits over the previous four days

Two of the outfits never made the lookbook/blog cut (although the jumper outfit without the skirt may be worn again in a day or two and photographed because I did rather like it.)

It's not particularly interesting, I just thought I'd include it here just because. It's not the peak of my artistic ability, just a quick little doodle to pass some time yesterday.

I'll start off with yesterday's outfit!

Jumper - My boyfriend's
Skirt - Primark
Shoes - Primark

I have such a little lost/innocent face in that second photo! It makes me laugh a little. I didn't intend for it to come out like that!
I really want to keep this jumper, but once the boyfriend returns from his holiday I think I have to give it back. It's soooo comfortable. I might go to Topman for my jumper shopping in the future because of it.
I'm beginning to  get used to the hair now, and my dad keeps commenting on how it looks quite 1920s, so I keep amusing myself by talking as if I'm in an F. Scott. Fitzgerald novel. 
... Anyway!

I think it's probably kind of obvious that I have a love of painting my nails, but I couldn't decide between two colours today so I compromised

Both colours are Barry M. One is Peach Melba, and the other Blueberry Ice Cream - it's probably kind of obvious which is which.
They're not the neatest polkadots, but I was using the end of a pen to do them so it's forgivable, right?

I'll have probably painted them another colour by the next post though! Such is life.

Mint Green

First outfit post with my new hair!

Black Vest - DIY
Skirt - Topshop
Necklace - River Island

I have such a weakness for pastel coloured nails, and mint green is one of my favourites. The ever trusty Barry M that is. I own 20 different Barry M shades now, it's getting to the stage of obsession!

I won't write too much on the outfit, because I was quite interested in doing a music post today. I quite wanted to share a few of my favourite songs for summer, so here goes:

Craft Spells - Scandinavian Crush

Tennis - Seafarer

Summer Camp - Veronica Sawyer

Los Campesinos! - A Heat Rash In The Shape Of The Show Me State Or, Letters From Me To Charlotte

Geographer - Verona

All brilliant for summer and some of my favourite songs!

Hair Cut!

First off, sorry about the delay in posting! I've been meaning to get around to it but certain things have been getting in the way. Apologies for that.

Secondly, I have new hair!

Much shorter! Shorter than I asked as well, but nothing I can do now.
I'm still slightly undecided. Long hair was my thing for a while, plus I've lost the ombre/dip-dye but I needed a lot of really poorly conditioned hair to go, and now I've finally done it so it's in much better condition plus it's kind of cute, right?

Thirdly! I get asked this quite often so I'll put it here now
The camera I use is  a Sony-DSC W90. Specific factors, such as the orangey tinge to most of my photos, are added afterwards in photoshop. I hope this clears any questions about that up! :)
