What I Wore: Hummingbird Heartbeat

dress - New Look
sunglasses - Primark (mens)

Not a very relevant title, but one of my favourite songs at the moment. Well, I love Katy Perry's discography in it's entirety... So being British it is customary that I begin my post with a comment about the weather: it's bloody gorgeous! I'm on study leave at the moment so I've just been sitting out in the garden - doing a tiny bit of studying - but mostly reading my book (11.22.63 by Stephen King) and getting a bit of a tan. I always love a bit of sun, especially when it's as warm as this, but it really wasn't expected and I definitely find my self struggling to cope at times! I need to make a conscious effort to keep drinking lots of water to keep my migraines at bay, but as long as I remember I'm fine. Need to get used to it for my holidays this year!
Anyway, I wore this pretty summer dress for a day in the sun with my friends (including Amy who's blog you should follow) which was lovely. I bought this dress (along with about 5 others) in the New Look sale this time last year and it's one of my summer staples, it's so easy to throw on and go. I love New Look for summer, they have some really nice dresses at affordable prices - always a plus. I was browsing the sale in New Look on Tuesday but was a bit disappointed, I did see a few skirts I liked that weren't in the sale but they didn't really suit me! However as I was leaving I spotted my dream bag that I just had to have. It's lovely and roomy and a gorgeous colour, perfect for summer. Can't quite bring myself to use it yet as it's been officially dubbed my 'holiday bag' so I'll save it for Berlin!
Anyway, I hope everyone's enjoy the lovely weather, I'm off to watch One Tree Hill series one with my glorious ceiling fan!



  1. Love the dress! Very summery. It's my first summer in Scotland and I definitely wasn't expecting this lovely weather!

    1. Ooh I know, it's rare but it's wonderful!x

  2. I was going to buy that book, is it any good? :)x

    1. It's great! I'm a bit of a Stephen King geek haha but this book is definitely a good one. They're even making a film of it :)x
