Outfit of the day - And the walls kept tumbling down

I need to learn to smile.

Hello! I've been trying to get back in to posting OOTDs a bit more often, but I've just not been liking the photos I've taken. Do we like the little added details on the photo? I've been having fun playing about with all of the little graphics on my blog - hence the new 'listening to' feature. I used to try and post a little playlist on each post but I think it's a bit easier to just choose one song, usually which the post title derived from, then keep my playlists to a monthly occurrence.
I love this top. I got it last September during a student lock in at Buchanan Galleries and I just love the print! It's a lovely silky material and has a peplum waist which makes it a bit dressier than my normal tops but can just as easily be dressed down. Pointless fact, but I wore it on my first visit to my future university! It featured in Lana Del Rey's campaign for H&M which just meant I had to have it. I'm actually going to see her in a couple of weeks and I'm very excited - despite it being moved to my least favourite venue. Do any Glaswegians actually like the SECC as a concert venue? Much prefer the O2 Academy for artists like Lana. Anyway, I'm rambling.
I wore this on a little shopping trip with my friend Sarah yesterday. I had intended on getting quite a few things off of my 'to buy' list but in the end only managed to get my shoes for my leavers dinner (prom type thing) but I'm quite happy with that!

  2. Is it weird that I remember the post where you hauled that top? Without even clicking on it! I love it and they way you've set out the post. I think when we go to Forever 21 you should pick out outfits for me to try on x
