spotty and curly

Saturday, 29 January 2011


spotty blouse: H&M
navy bodycon skirt: H&M
dusty rose cardi: Topshop
black tights: Boots
brogues: Peacocks
gold drop earrings: Topshop


Sorry for the awfully-quick photos and the rushed post that this is bound to be. It's my boyfriend's 21st birthday today so I'm about to head on over there and bombard him with presents. We might be spending the day, or what's left of it, in London taaaaaan.

My hair is practically impossible to curl, so sometimes I sleep - rather uncomfortably - in plaits, and this is the result. It doesn't really last all day but it adds volume anyway, so smiles all round. This outfit is also uber-comfy, which is required when you're tourist-ing it 'round London and possibly stuffing yourself with food...

Happy Birthday Luke!
And have a good weekend everybody.

  1. I love the colour of your skirt, such a nice shade of navy. Also I've been trying to find a blouse like that but I don't think spots suit me for some reason! Your hair also looks lovely :)

    Happy Birthday to your boy! Hope you two have a lovely day together!

  11. Love the cardi with this! You look sooooo cute! My hair is tough to curl too! It only lasts if I use that sea salt kind of spray for messy waves...curlers give me curls that fall in about 10 minutes:(
