Outfit: I’M BAAAACK!!

Hello everyone! Sorry for being a terrible blogger and disappearing for months with no notice! When people say third year at university is a lot more busy and stressful than second year, they’re not lying. Unfortunately I got lazy with setting aside time to blog and never quite got round to posting anything new. But never fear, I’m back! I missed blogging too much to abandon it completely, and I’ve been keeping up with lots of your blogs while I’ve been away so hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things pretty quickly. Any good new blogs you think I should check out?

Anyway, enough of that. Let’s get straight to an outfit!


It was my friends’ (they are triplets! and also the loveliest people ever ♥) 21st birthday this weekend, and this is what I wore to their party.


The dress is from Zara, and is in fact my first ever purchase from there. I never usually go to Zara but as I was walking past I noticed this dress beside the door and had to go in and buy it! I don’t usually wear a lot of red but I probably should because I think it suits my pale skin and dark hair combo!


Sorry for the rather myspacey photo haha. I’m never sure how to take photos of rings without my hands looking mental, someone help?! The rings and silver hoop earrings are all from H&M. I’ve got a thing for these kind of big rings at the moment, not sure what to call them but I love them.



The belt and shoes are both from New Look. I forgot to take a close up of the shoes but they are my favourite going out shoes just now (comfy and also easy to walk in, HEAVENLY!) so they will no doubt be making another appearance soon!

Thank you to everyone who is still following the blog, hopefully you won’t have forgotten me! I promise not to be naughty and disappear again haha. I’ve decided to enter the big bad world of Twitter, so I’d love to have some new friends to chat to on there, it’s looking rather lonely at the moment! Find me @elevatormusik.
