polka dot

Wednesday, 29 December 2010


polka dot tee: H&M
black pleat skirt: River Island
polka dot tights: Primark
black booties: Marks & Spencer
pearl bow necklace: Accessorize (Christmas present)


I felt quite uncomfortable wearing such a dark outfit, or at least an outfit with just two colours. But hey, one has got to try out new things once in a while. I've also come to realise that this outfit didn't photograph particularly well - I swear it looks better in real life! Anyway, rant over.

These are my favourite ever shoes ever. You probably think I'm a bit weird, as they're only black boots but they are definitely my kind of shoe. Their chunky heel, suede-ish texture and cute lace-up detail make me swoon, and they are by far the comfiest pair of heels I've ever worn. Marks & Spencer are upping the stakes, that's for sure.

I've got to spend the next couple of hours working on my dissertation (bla!) but tonight I'm taking my family out to an Italian restaurant for their main Christmas present. I expect to come home full to the brim with delicious pasta and some kind of magical dessert.

  1. I love the polka dot matching effect! And I know what you mean, I don't often wear a monochrome outfit, but it looks lovely! And M and S are definitely improving themselves! I've seen a few things I quite like there recently.. hope you have a lovely meal tonight! xx

  10. Well I think it photographs stunningly! But I'm biased because I happen to LOVE polkadots, :)

    EDIT: the security type I had to type in here was 'gasms'. I thought this was exceptionally funny (orgasms? stylegasms?) but maybe I'm just really immature :)
