What I Wore: Rumour Has It.

Dress: Love Label. 
Cardigan: Boohoo.
Necklace: A birthday present. 
Tights: Asda.
I loved this dress so much that I had to get it in two different colours! The website described this colour as berry and while I wouldn’t agree completely it’s definitely not as neon pink as it seems to have photographed here. I think in real life I would call it more of a light rose. It’s completely gorgeous whatever colour it is and I adore it because it’s just so unbelievably easy to wear. It's one of my ‘throw on & go’ dresses because if I’m running late and I don’t have time to think about an outfit but I still want to look nice I know I can put this on and reach for any cardigan in my wardrobe, a pair of tights, a simple piece of jewellery and some flats. Easy-peasy and no thought required.

I had a mooch through my jewellery box the other day and I stumbled across this necklace. It was a present from my mama for my 16th birthday and until now I don’t think I’ve ever worn it. From nowhere I developed a very strong dislike for gold jewellery in my late teens, I actually think it was around that time when ‘chavs’ and their fake gold ‘bling’ were everywhere and the words gold and tacky went together like peanut butter and jelly. While I’m still not a huge gold jewellery fan, (I’ll take platinum please..in my dreams!), I think when it’s worn in a classy way it can look really pretty, especially if you’re warm toned.

Unfortunately for me photographs seem to pick up on the little bald patch in my left eyebrow & make it a lot more obvious than it is in real life. I had a bit of a plucking incident and I have absolutely no idea how I managed it but this is a little note to self, don't forget to fill your brows in! My blush also isn’t quite as rubbishly blended as it appears to be but I’ll make no apologies for being
a fan of lots of blush! It's super sunny today so out came the peachy tones on my cheeks & lips and bronzey golds on my eyes.

Are you as excited for Spring as I am? Or if you've just had your summer, are you excited for Winter? I know in a few months time I'll be complaining that it's too hot and that I want Winter back, but for now, roll on the sunshine, pretty dresses and ice lollies please!


  1. Jenny you look positively glowing, you look lovely! xxx

    (jealous of your fab skin! - so glad you tell us all your skin secrets :))

  2. I prefer the other version of this dress but you look so pretty here! Don't think your eyebrow looks that bad, honestly. I over-plucked lately and started filling in for the first time ever! They look so much better.


  3. Lovely dresses! I could do with some like that, all of mine are floral patterned, but I'm trying to spend nothing for the rest of this month :P
    I'm quite looking forward to spring this year, I'm keen to have a load of picnics in different places before it gets too baking hot!

  6. I love 'Love Label' You look stunning hun xxx

  7. I love this dress, those military style buttons are so cute. I think I had a phase of not wanting to wear or be associated with anything gold and chav-like, but now I think worn in the right way it can be quite subtle and beautiful.

    I have a nameplate necklace I got when I was about sixteen and I have always wanted an initial one, see this as me being inspired xxx

  8. @Sarah - N'aww thank you! My skin has been having a bit of a freak out, it just doesn't show too much on camera! hehe.
