TODAY: Brush Strokes

dress: french connection* |  shoes: topshop | watch: michael kors (similar) | sunglasses: marc by marc jacobs*  

I’m trying my hardest to wear more dresses, really I am. This French Connection number is a new, but already very much loved, number in my wardrobe and now I want to prance about in it all summer long. It’s the perfect fit, length and has pockets. Pockets! Any dress with pockets goes up approximately 10x in my estimation.

These photos were a result of Amy and I (thanks for the pics gurl) having a good old wander around Newcastle in search of pretty locations for outfit snaps. There’s quite a lot of hidden gems around Toon, so hopefully there’ll be more variety on my blog from now on (weather dependant!).

Anyway, last night I ate a disgusting amount of pulled pork so today I am vegetating at my boyfriend’s house. We’re catching up with a bit of prison break (season 4 is painful to get through) and I’m gonna read some blogs, as I feel like I haven’t in ages! Let me know what you’re up to today.
