Summer Haze

God the weather in St Andrews is bi-polar-as soon as I complain about it getting wintery again, the sun pops out and we have a ridiculously nice day here. I'm writing this blog post in the garden trying to get a bit of colour on my legs and avoiding the pile of reading I have next to me. 

I bought this skirt last summer from my little local Primark back in Kent and I wore it ALL the time until it got too cold to wear without tights. I have a feeling I'll be doing the same this year (although thank god I'm losing a bit of weight-the zip is TIGHT!)

Since it is such a gorgeous day I thought I'd take advantage of the natural light and got my lovely housemate Eilidh to indulge my shameless posing outside.

Now before I post the pics you'll have to excuse my hugely puffy eyes-I've had a massive reaction to some make up (post to come) and my face is messed UP.


Lipstick: MAC Morange
Necklace: Disney Couture
Bangles: Part of a set from New Look
Vest Top: H&M
Crochet Cardigan: New Look
Skirt: Primark

Isn't the skirt pretty? I love the cute little scene on it, and it also makes me want to go on holiday and wander down a beach wearing it!




Lastly-and this isn't just a cheeky chest shot for all you perverts out there-I thought I'd dig out my gorgeous Tinkerbell Disney Couture necklace that my favourite little pal Charlotte gave me for my 18th birthday (back in the day!)




Are you guys enjoying some lovely sunshine today? Or has St Andrews stolen it all from the rest of the UK?

  4. Well the rain is pouring down here in London, so yeah, you guys have stolen our sunshine! So even though you look great in this beautiful summery outfit, I wouldn't mind getting it back.
