Jubilee fun

Today's song: The Jam- English Rose

Dress: Boohoo, Tights: M&S, Shoes: Topshop

I'm a bit late on this one as this is what I wore out on Jubilee Bank Holiday Monday. Because I had plans I booked it off work and was super excited to be off with the majority of the country for once!

The Jubilee coincided with excellent Birmingham indie club Snobs' 40th birthday celebrations. Apparently if you got there early there was cake!! I felt I definitely deserved a new dress for the occassion, in red or blue. I didn't want to go full FLAG dress because when would I ever wear it again?! And I don't have the pennies to spend on something I'd only wear once sadly, even if it is only £20 like this one!


I'm doing a bit of a gormy face because I'm well aware that my bum is in full view in this photo! I'm not really a body-con girl I think! Or only on one half at a time anyway. I got this a size up because they didn't have my size. It's pretty tight so I dread to think what my size would have been like! I love the cute heart cut out but I'm considering getting a flippy skater skirt to wear over the dress in future.

What I do love about these photos is my hair! My curlers have broken so I used Edd's GHDs, not something I've done before. It was rather fiddly but I like the result a lot. I love having big hair on a night out.
Cardigan: Primark, Dress: Oasis, Bag: Primark, Tights: M&S, Shoes: New Look

Think this may be the third outing for this dress on the blog but I absolutely love it to bits. This is what I wore on Bank Holiday Tuesday without too much of a hangover. I've switched my night out drink from vodka to gin even though I get a lot of funny looks. Gin is cool guys, I don't care if my Great-Aunt drinks it!! It's the same price as vodka in most clubs I go to but I drink less of it for some reason- win win situation.

Also in this picture you can see my lovely pink cardigan which I've had for years. I've been forced to put it to one side as the material is irritating the patch of eczema on my wrist. I get a patch of ezcema every couple of years or so despite my best attempts. I'm blaming the chemicals at work.

The heart shape on the back is so cute, but I love the pink dress the most. I'd probably want to wear it all the time :)

I adore the heart cut out on the blue dress. It is so sweet and really adds to the dress. Your hair looks absolutely incredible. I love the pink dress. It is definitely my style; so feminine and pretty. I always love those shoes too.

I love that dress!
And I think I gotta agree with you on Nirvana's Unplugged. To be honest I haven't heard any of their songs before Bleach because I only have three albums, but of these I like Unplugged best. Well, it's a tie between In Utero and Unplugged. But Unplugged is beautiful, Kurt's voice sounds so pure!
