denim days

Today I decided to wear a very denim inspired outfit, teaming my denim coloured skater dress with my denim shirt and denim coloured shoes. To add an edge I wore my spiky gold necklace and bangles. I also wore my favourite black cat-eye sunnies and put my hair into a messy side fish-tail plait. It was one of those days that was warm but became suddenly very chilly so I was a little puzzled as to what I should wear. Dare I admit that everything I am wearing here is from Newlook...maybe I'll just keep it a secret.

It is a month and a half until I go away on holiday to the south of France, so at the moment I am attempting to build up some more summer clothes. I am so excited to get away and enjoy some sunshine. We do not get enough in this part of the world. I think I am suffering from a vitamin D deficiency. It'll be lovely to go to the beach and pool and drink cocktails and just relax.

A little catch up? Well as you know, I have been back from uni for a few weeks now and have just been doing home-y things like meeting with friends, going for walks, reading and making new recipes for dinner. Last night, me and two of my friends went to a park near the seafront to watch an out door showing of Glastonbury. It was a nice evening but very Eastbourne-y. That's that only way I can describe it. Here is a picture I took last night that I thought was pretty cool.

What have you been up to? Are you going anywhere exciting on holiday this year?

P.S Below is one of the bands we were listening to last night that I really liked and You Tubed when I got home -

Wedding Outfit Looks

So in the Summer I have a wedding to go to. Hooray!! I've been wanting to go to a wedding for years (having only been to two in my whole life) and now finally I have one to go to. My sister is being a bridesmaid for one of her best and oldest friends. I know it's going to be a great day. I love weddings and I can't wait to see the bride looking beautiful in her wedding dress as well seeing my sister finally getting to be a bridesmaid (having wanted to be one all of her life).

So these are the two outfits I have planned and am going to choose between. I originally bought a beautiful blue and white china print fitted dress that was lovely and fitted me like a dream apart from it being too short. If I liked my legs/ or had nice legs, it would be perfect but unfortunately I hate them and for good reason. I considered tights but tights in August are a terrible idea. Then I debated a petticoat but I wanted to be able to wear this dress casually throughout the Summer and I don't think I'd be able to do that with a petticoat. So my third option was to return the dress, cry a bit about the return and the order another dress which brings me around full circle to the two dresses above. Both are from a line called Samya, which is being sold in Newlook, Debenhams and House of Fraser, and are each £45. I have styled this dresses quite similarly but somehow they look quite different.

So my question to you is:

Which "look" do you prefer and why?

I'm struggling to decide which so I am turning to you all for some help. There is no one I trust more! I am also going to put a poll in the sidebar (on the left) so if you don't fancy commenting, just vote and if you do comment then please vote as well!

Thanks guys,
