"SHE'S LEAVING HOME, AFTER LIVING ALONE, FOR SO MANY YEARS (BYE BYE)".


Listening to: She's Leaving Home- The Beatles

Have you ever worn an item for the first time and INSTANTLY fallen head over heels in love with it? Can you have "love at first wear"?

Dress: H&M (not online but still in stores)
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Charity shop- originally American Eagle
Necklace: eBay
Jacket: Bay

This dress is such an item. I don't know what it is about it but it just makes me feel amazing when its on. Really super amazing! I've been pairing outfits with this black jacket form Bay a lot lately as well (I've had it since i was about 13 I can barely believe its held up this well)- it makes a really good spring/autumn jacket as its both lightweight but warm.

I love this dress so much- I've been stalking the Internet for similar items I can wrap my beautiful body in. The first from Motel (eeeee!!! NAVY STRIPES!), and this black and white number from New Look makes a good dupe, but I think my favourite has to be the darker striped one from ASOS (I wish I had a healthier bank account). 

Sorry about how bad the light is in these photos- I really need to find somewhere I can actually take photos in my house without being in poor lighting or surrounded by so much furniture/walls, as although my mum keeps our house like a show room- its not the biggest of homes.
