A Storm in a Teacup


So the other day I was out shopping with my friend when I saw this dress and got a bit over excited. It was long enough to go past my knees! Being something like 5’10, dresses that are long enough on other people are always too short on me. So many of the dresses I have, I have to wear with leggings or even skinny jeans. So the fact this dress wasn’t just long enough, but went past my knees was a novelty. It’s really pretty too, these pictures don’t show the top of it but it has a 1940’s sort of feel to it. I can’t wait until the weather warms up and I can wear it with my arms out. 



 The iso is a bit high in some of these pictures as the sun was setting so half of them are a bit grainy. I didn’t realise this at the time and even though I kind of like the effect, it would have been better if they all looked the same. Oh well, I will just have to remember this for next time.



I also went a bit mad in Primark and I have filmed a video on what I bought, which I’ll put up some time next week. I'm blaming the fact there was jumpers on sale for the amount I got, for example this jumper only cost me £2. I also saw the jumper I wore in this post for only £3 now which is kind of heart breaking as I spent £15 on it. This is why I have a love/hate relationship with sales.



(I never realise that I'm looking grumpy until I take pictures. I’m a cheery person, I swear, it’s just my face!)

I’m wearing:
Jumper from Primark for £2 in men’s section
Dress from H&M for £19.99, I wouldn’t of usually spent that much but it was long
Necklace from Primark for £1.50 and it wasn’t even on sale!
Nude tights from Primark
Brogues from Primark I got in a sale ages ago for £6 

I'm listening to: 


I’ve already taken pictures for my next blog post as it snowed today, but I was planning to put up my Primark video first. I’ve also made another video that I may or may not put up and am planning on doing a more article style blog post so keep an eye out for that!

  1. I love this outfit! You look lovely. I have the same problem with dresses - I'm the same height as you so I feel your pain on the length situation haa. Since I started limiting my shopping to strictly second hand stores this year, I've found that all the dresses I've found are long enough so that's been rather nice. Although since I started finding longer dresses, I've found myself hoisting them up! Fashion can't win ahah.

  3. This is such an amazing outfit! I love simply everything about it - the necklace is gorgeous and the jumper is such a bargain. The dress is great and something I would 100% wear :)) I really like Primark, but unfortunately I only get a chance to shop in it once or twice a year when I am abroad, beacuse we don't have one in my country :( Have a great weekend!

    1. I don't know what I'd do without Primark - most of my clothes are from there. They seem to be expanding though

  4. I love when dresses are the perfect length. That is totally the best.

    I also love how you paired that necklace over the sweater. Small details <3

    1. The length of a dress always makes it. I'm glad you like the necklace over the jumper. it wa just a last minute, "this outfit looks too plain" thing.

  5. I have the opposite problem, everything is too long for me! But I completely understand the thing with looking grumpy in pictures, the same thing happens to me too :)
