Dress - New Look; Jacket - Tommy Hilfiger (old)
If you listen to what the magazines say, I should avoid midi dresses as they don't flatter my "petite frame", but who are the magazines to dictate what I wear? To be fair, I'm not wholly convinced midi dresses do suit me, but right now I really really really like them. I can show a little bit of leg without flashing my knickers, and I think they actually look quite chic with very little effort on my part. My current "thing" is documenting the evolution of my wardrobe as I try to find my style, so obviously I'm blogging this outfit because it made me feel sassy as hell. I don't care if they "flatter my frame" or not, midi dresses are going to be a staple part of my wardrobe this summer.
Much like my last outfit post I made the most of the fact that I was spending my Saturday evening catching up with some of my lovely blogging ladies over cheeseburgers and cocktails by getting Hayley to grab a few outfit snaps for me on our way to Tiki Bar with Lis & Morag when we found a little spot of greenery in Glasgow's city centre. It did smell a bit suspect though, which explains the half grimace, half giggle I've got going on in the photos. Got to love the Glasgow sights on a Saturday night...
So, a spot of news. After finding out I didn't get back in to university a few weeks ago I had kind of pushed my disappointment to the back of mind, focusing on my trip to New York instead. A few days after I got back I had a little bit of a stressful moment where I found myself feeling like my life was going nowhere, and after spending a few hours browsing college courses I found one that actually sounded like a dream come true, so I applied. Trying desperately not to get my hopes up I didn't shout about it *too* much, but a few days ago I found out that I had been offered a place, so in September I'll be starting at a college in Glasgow to study Advertising & Public Relations. I'm bursting with excitement about it and can't wait to get started, the modules sound right up my street, but I'm a tiny bit nervous about being a fresher all over again. Finding out that I got in was a huge weight off my shoulders and I feel like I've been on cloud nine ever since.
