I have been loving this change of weather this week; the continuous downpour of rain was just beginning to dampen my mood (pun very much intended), but now that the sun is shining, I feel very much refreshed and ready to provide summer content for you funky lot.
Before I get cracking, how do we all feel about money? Personally, I find money, and the absence of, utterly stressful. Since leaving home, I've felt overwhelmed at times with the responsibility of handling money; ensuring I have enough money to pay bills on time and so that I never run out. As a student, obviously this can be overbearingly painful at times as student loans aren't the most generous. However, I would honestly love to know if this is it now, for the rest of time, am I going to spend my entire existence feeling concerned about what's in my bank?!?!?!?! WILL THE PAIN EVER END?! Anyway, before I give myself premature grey hair and wrinkles, let's get on with things...
- OUTFIT -
Sunglasses: Hindsight Vintage
Dress: New Look
I feel like this outfit really captures a typical spring/summer look of mine. I have a tendency to lean towards dresses when the weather brightens up, particularly as I'm not the most keen shorts-wearer. I feel like because I am short and don't have the slimmest thighs ever, that shorts really don't flatter me all that well, and so I am less confident in a pair of denim shorts than a dress or skirt, so come summertime, I regularly opt for a skirt/dress like the one in this post.
Checking out the floor like Kylie Jenner, lmao...
I haven't had this dress for a particularly long time, however this season I have been creating a small collection of plain black dresses in my wardrobe, in both midi and maxi length. They are incredibly versatile and both body-con and jersey dresses provide comfort and a hint of style - easy fashion, my fave. This particular dress I love because of the jersey spaghetti straps and the high neckline. Also, the high split on the leg adds a little something to quite a 'plain Jane' dress. This dress was from New Look, and I must say that I don't frequently visit New Look all that much anymore, as it honestly reminds me of being 15/16 and spending my pocket money in New Look whenever I had enough to make a purchase. But, I am pleasantly surprised by this dress, and I did in fact buy a dress very similar last year from New Look, so if you're on the hunt for a black midi dress, most definitely have a gander in their store, or online!!!
***Quick disclaimer, thanks George for purchasing this dress for me, u did gd man.***
