What I Wore: Born to Gaze into Night Skies.

Dress: ASOS. Blazer: Glamorous. ♦ Bag: Disaster Designs Dandy Bag.
Tights: Matalan. Bracelet: Pandora. Heart Ring: Scape Jewellery.

I'm currently on a huge little black dress kick & for some reason they are all I want to wear. They're just so easy to throw on, accessorise with some cute jewellery & a blazer and that's it. I'm out the door. This ballet wrap dress from ASOS is my current favourite dress of all time, it's simple, it's super flattering and if you're a pear or an hourglass shape you need this dress in your life. The wrap style top is so gorgeous, it cinches in at the waist and then flows out into a slight skater style skirt that skims over the hips. It's beyond perfect!

After the mini heatwave that hit the UK a few weeks ago, summer hasn't really returned yet so I took the opportunity to take my Glamorous blazer on another outing. I adore this blazer so much, the colour is beautiful and it has the most perfect shape to it. I opted to go one size above my usual size & it's slouchy but not too oversized and it's just super comfortable. I'm pretty sure I'm breaking some big fashion 'rules' mixing black with blue and brown but nevermind! Rules are there to be broken sometimes!

My pink ombre is almost all faded & I'm just waiting for my hair to grow another inch or so before I get a trim and finally be free of the ombre completely. I absolutely loved it but right now I'm longing for simple, wavy long locks. I would love to get some highlights & low lights put through to give my hair a bit of dimension but the price & upkeep is super off-putting. I'm actually really happy with the colour right now as it is so I probably shouldn't mess with it too much. The Lee Stafford Sun Kissed Lightening Spray is really amazing! I just get bored way too easily I think! 

Are you a fan of little black dresses?

  17. I just love your blazer. The color is stellar. I actually just got some highlights in my hair but I dont think I will keep them up. The cost really is high.

  20. You're so right Jennie, that dress is super flattering - you look lovely! I also adore your Disaster Designs bag :) And the blue blazer really sets the outfit off... I like the more slouchy fit with the fitted dress. If I wasn't cutting down my spending I'd totally be ordering that dress!

  29. I've been looking at this dress on the website for ages, but after seeing it on you I definitely want to get it! What's the sizing like? Did you go for your normal size or do they come up too big or too small? I'm always a bit wary when buying things online and never know what size to go for!

    1. It's such a lovely dress. I bought it my usual size and it fits perfectly. It's a nice quality material with a lot of stretch in it so if you very between sizes then I'd say go for the smaller :) xo
