running from the heat






♥ dress: topshop
♥ scarf: H&M
♥ shoes: select
♥ watch: river island
♥ tights: jack wills
♥ lipstick: rimmel apocolips 'big bang'

I've had this scarf for what seems like ages now and I still wear it all the time- it was such a bargain and I'm so glad I bought it when I did as I'm not sure if they still stock it! It's such a staple piece to me and it goes with practically anything!
I bought this dress the other day after wanting it for what seems like forever and I'm in love! They also had a grey one and a burgundy one which I also have my eye on! I like the little speckles in the material- they make it look more expensive than it was! Oh and I bought it in two sizes smaller than I normally am- Jillian Michaels 30 day shred workout dvd I LOVE YOU! I bought the apocolips in my lunch break yesterday, I *think* the concept of it is that it's meant to be a liquid lipstick but it's honestly so pigmented and lasts really well on the lips! I really need to stop buying red lipstick though as now I'm gathering quite a collection of similar shades...
I bought these shoes about a week before christmas, wore them once and then forgot I had them and I just found them under my bed (I need to tidy my room more really). They weren't very expensive and they aren't really that comfortable but oh well!
Oh and I wore a necklace (the one in this post) when I went out but forgot to take a photo with it on (duh) so sorry about that!

the title is from the song 'go slow' by Haim by the way!


have you got anything nice planned for this week?
