Outfit: Studs, Studs, Studs

stud tunic 02

I bought this top ages ago from the Mela Loves London concession in New Look thinking it was a dress, but it most certainly is not! To get away with the indecent shortness, I wore it with some wetlook leggings from Dorothy Perkins. I love the soft peachy pink colour of the tunic, and the tiny silver studs all over it help to toughen it up a bit. They also had the same top in black which I almost bought instead. The black one would have probably been a bit more versatile, but I decided to buy this one anyway because I loved the colour.

I seem to have a bit of a thing for puff-sleeves at the moment. I also have a bit of a thing for animal themed jewellery!

These earring are from River Island and are shaped like little pink honey bees! So cute! I’ve been stocking up on lots of animal jewellery lately – including seahorse and frog earrings and a snake ring – which I’m sure will be making an appearance on the blog soon.

Unfortunately my shoes are looking a bit scuffed and worse for wear, probably because I wear them almost every time I go on a night out! They are ridiculously comfortable! I had a look in the New Look sale to see if they had any left so I could replace these ones, but sadly they only had size 8’s. That’s one thing I hate about being a size 5 – it’s a really common size so always sells out the quickest!

I was hoping to have done a couple more posts this week but I have been feeling a bit ill so have spent most of the time snuggled up on the sofa with a hot water bottle and some DVDs. I’ve only been to see one show at the Edinburgh Festival so far, but am hoping to get out and about lots this weekend and next week so stay tuned for a post in the near future about what I’ve been to see!

    I hate the fact that my shoe size is common size. I saw a lot of shoes I liked on Asos and sadly, they were all sold out in my size.
