Pink Peplum

Hello again lovelies! Today looked like it was going to be absolutely lovely so I ventured out without tights, only to be caught in a downpour on my way home from the bus stop! Typical.

As some of you might have seen if you follow me on Twitter or on Instagram (@laurenella and @laurenella1990 respectively) I have been taking part in an archaeological dig this week. It is a community project excavating the foundations of a 12th century manor house and it has been really good, although very very hard work-I'm not used to manual labour!

Today was a day off for me which meant I could say goodbye to the combat trousers and steel toed boots for a little while to get dressed up when I headed off to meet one of my besties for afternoon tea. I went for my favourite dress of the moment, a pink peplum number from H&M which is just the right length that it can be worn with flats during the day as well as with some killer heels at night!

Earrings: New Look
Dress: H&M
Bracelet: New Look
Shoes: Missguided

Phew, I am very thankful that I haven't got any close up shots of my legs, as on last count I had a total of seven bruises and a few gnat bites to boot. Sexy or what?

I still bloody love these Missguided shoes, they're starting to get a bit scuffed up so they look more like strays than pedigrees now! Still, I shall continue to wear them until they completely fall apart. 

Have a good weekend, whatever you will be doing!
