Part Of Me OOTD


I bought this dress when I went shopping on Saturday (and spent too much money, as usual!). I was inspired by Kate (Dolly Bow Bow), who blogged about this dress recently. I adore her style and as soon as I saw this on her blog, I knew it had to be mine! It's from H&M and is a crochet shift dress which I'm sure it would flatter a lot of figures. The sleeves flair out which look cute and adds some interest to the shape of the dress. I absolutely adore this dress and I can see me getting a lot of wear out of it as the weather changes from Winter to Spring. I think it's classy and simple and it would look lovely dressed up in the evening or dressed down during the day. It was £19.99 which is a bargain!

On my feet I am wearing a new purchase, my H&M flatforms! I've wanted flatforms for a while now. I have been interested in the 'Creeper' trend the last few months but they don't go with my style at all, so I never bought any. These flatforms, however, look really cute, and I think they complement the dress well. I also like that they give me a bit of height (I'm 5ft 4in!) so its nice to feel a bit taller every once in a while. They also elongate your legs, and define them- as heels do. They are clumpy, but I like that!

I curled my hair using the Babyliss Conical wand. I don't normally use it because the waves don't last as long as when I use straighteners but I love the relaxed look the wand gives. In addition to the H&M theme of the outfit (I didn't even realise until I was writing this post!) I'm wearing a H&M nail polish, in 'Blue My Mind'. I love the electric blue nail trend that seems to be on all the blogs at the moment so I thought I'd join in. I'm undecided as to whether it suits me but it's an interesting colour nevertheless! I might write a post showing it in more detail if any one is interested?

This week I'm starting to revise for my final exams which are in May and June. It's pretty scary knowing that in a few months I'll know whether I've got a place at university or not! I'm still going to be blogging regularly though, I'll definitely need some down-time here and there :) 

Hope everyone has had a lovely week!
