Outfit: Ahoy, Sailor!

nautical 2

Can you tell from my last couple of posts that I’m in love with nautical colours and styles?! I snapped up this dress in the Warehouse sale and I’m in love with it, even if it is also a little bit short (should probably put on a pair of leggings underneath when wearing this in public)!

The belt is from Primark. I bought it about a year ago but have only worn it a handful of times, I think I need to wear it more often as the buckle is awesome! The shoes are also from Primark. They are they perfect non-sandals summer shoes. Whenever I wear them they make me want to learn to play tennis!

I decided to paint my nails to go with this outfit, what do you think of the way they turned out? I decided to paint a little white heart on one nail to match my heart-shaped necklace which was originally from Quiz a very very long time ago!

I used Nails Inc polish in ‘Victoria and Albert’, Barry M in ‘Red Glitter’ and ‘White’, and 17 Lasting Fix Polish in ‘Clear’.

What are your plans for the weekend? One of my friends is coming over tonight, not sure yet what our plans are but I’m sure it will invole either films, alcohol or baking, possibly all three!
