Friday was my amazing little brother's 18th birthday. We celebrated by going in a stretched limo, drinking champagne (while he drunk J20's) and then meeting family friends out for a meal. I decided to wear something a little different for me and so I thought it'd be nice to share on here.
I tend to be a bit obsessed with wearing leggings (you may have noticed) and also fitted clothing...meaning I am scared of anything that may resemble a sac cause I don't wanna look like I'm covering up too much at the risk of frump. I previously despised swing dresses as I was always scared they would make me look like I was wearing a tent but this dress (see here) sits nice across my chest and catches my hips on the way down so you can see my shape. I would have never picked it online but I randomly ended up trying it on while out shopping a few weeks back. I think I was drawn to the floral 90's grunge pattern and decided to toughen it up with my biker boots which I got for £12. I don't like looking too girly and florally and pink. A clash of styles always works quite nicely. As well as the dress, I am also wearing tights which you will rarely see me in, however, I think I may start wearing them more, just obviously not too much in the summer!
The day was crazily busy (read as fun) so I only managed to get a couple of pictures on my iPhone but they are good enough that you can see my outfit properly, although I do look 4ft in the third picture!?

Anyway, 
Happy Weekend!
