TYE DYE.


dress: mink pink (old)
jacket: dotti
shoes: converse (old)

I was telling my mum that I'd been looking at Converse trainers and was thinking of buying a pair for summer when she rushed off into her wardrobe and pulled out these. I'd thrown them away years ago but she's kept them just in case I changed my mine - she knows me too well! Finding something in your closet that you've forgotton about, or in this case, finding your mum saved things just in case you wanted them back, is almost as good as getting something new! They're actually high tops, but I've turned the sides over as the high top style is a little unflattering on me. I worn them with this dress, which is also old, that I'd been wanting to wear for a while but every time I put in on it just didn't feel right. It did today! The tye dye jumped right out at me and as soon as I tried it on I knew I had to have it. It's got that loose, oversized, baggy look that I really love, and is long enough to protect my modersty if I wear it without tights underneath.

Today was a really exciting day for me as I had my very first guest post on a blog. I love reading Sophia's blog, which you can find here, as her reviews are always lovely to read and she can always recomend the perfect product - so of course I jumped at the chanes to write a guest post for her. You can see my guest post - which is about bronzing powders - here!

    1. Nothing ever does does it? It just goes away for a while then comes back.
