What I Wore: Velvet Dress & Mid Winter Sunshine.

Coat: Primark. Dress: Love Label. Cardigan: H&M. Bag: ASOS.
Shoes: ASOS. Scarf: Primark. Necklace: Sailboat Ahoy! 
Heart Ring: Scape Jewellery. Ruby Ring: Studio59. 

It's so wonderful seeing these photographs again, I remember this day like it was yesterday although these were taken way back in the middle of January. This day was perfect, it was freezing cold and the ground was covered in ice so getting up to this spot in the hills was not easy especially as I was wearing less than practical shoes, as always. We slipped over countless times and laughed so hard until we cried. There was no one else around that day, it was so peaceful and beautiful and I felt so content with life. The decisions I have made in the last week will hopefully lead me back to that feeling. Life is so difficult when you start to lose yourself, and life is just too short to waste a single moment. Sometimes circumstances dictate what you have to do, but if you can find a way around that, I believe it's important to do what your heart tells you. Everything has been suffering because I've been feeling so low, even this little piece of the internet that I'm so fond of. My blog posts have been lacking, for some reason I felt pressured into publishing posts even if I wasn't happy with the content, which is strange because no one has been pressuring me, only myself. At times I really can be my own worst enemy, but I think I'm getting back on track. Fingers crossed.

This dress is one of my favourites although I can count on one hand the number of times I have worn it. It has been sitting in my wardrobe for a long time and even though I find it difficult to wear I just adore it. I love it even more now that it has such happy memories attached to it. I'm so sentimental it's ridiculous, I still have the dress that I wore the first time I met my boyfriend and even though I don't wear it anymore, I just can't part with it. Are you ever sentimental at times?

  6. Lovely dress, you look beautiful. Sounds like you had a lovely day :)
    I get really sentimental over some little things. When I was between 9 and 16 years old my dad worked abroad in different countries, he used to write postcards to me and I've kept them all, and all the little presents he'd send :) x
