tapestry print


Nude blouse, Republic
Berry bag, Primark
Eye ring, Topshop
DIY Aztec Nails using Barry M in Peach Melba and Mint Green + Topshop Nail Art Pen.

As soon as I opened my package from Dahlia last week, I fell in love with this tapestry print dress. The tapestry style is everywhere this autumn and it is definitely one of my favourite trends. I paired the dress with my infamous sheer nude blouse which manages to go with anything and everything. The dress is excellent quality and a perfect shape and looking it it sat on a coathanger right now makes me want to put it on again! It seemed somewhat appropriate for me to wear Chelsea boots as these photos were taken in a beautiful location in Chelsea. I've worn this pair of my Mum's almost everyday since being in London. 
I'm anticipating Autumn greatly. I can't wait for the leaves to turn orange and crispy and fall from the trees. Although I'm less looking forward to the dark evenings.
I started my new job at Oasis today! It lovely to work in the retail environment and I'm looking forward to the opportunities it may bring. 
I painted my nails in an Aztec pattern this week. I'm terrible with things when it comes to beauty, but I do enjoy doing my nails when I have enough time - although waiting for them to dry is painfully boring. It may look complex, but its really easy - believe me. I simply used a coat of mint green, followed my lines of peach and then topped the look off with black patterns using a nail art pen. A coat of clear and you're good to go.
