Oranges and Lemons, say the bells of Saint Clements

You owe me five farthings, say the bells of Saint Martins.. oh the old nursery rhymes. I'd seen this Primark dress in the summer look book online and was keen to check it out in-store. As ever, there were pretty much just sizes 6 and 20 left, this one is an 8 and slightly constricting in the chest department, but then I don't have much to constrict in the first place.. Wedges and jacket also being from Primark I feel like I've committed that cardinal sin and could be mistaken for a walking Primark mannequin. Luckily the vintage bag saves the day!
Oh, just noticed my legs look slightly pasty, probably down to the tinted moisturiser that I cannot for the life of me apply evenly...

Me and D have just bought tickets to go to Latitude Festival in Suffolk which should be plenty of fun- looking forward to seeing Suede, Echo and the Bunnymen, Foals, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Walkmen and more. Had to raid my ISA account (a temporary measure, ahem).

  9. I love that dress! It reminds me of a pic of Liv Tyler in a lemon dress from the 90s. Yours is much cooler though:) It's so cool you get to see Echo and the Bunnymen. Have fun! xx

  10. Oh I love how you've funked it up with the leather jacket. It looks amazing. I'd never have known it was all Primark if you hadn't said so.

  13. That dress is AMAZING!!! Having the most hardcore dress envy this very moment. I'd actually seen another girl in the blog world wearing a similar pattern to this dress, only it was a blouse and the pattern was oranges and lemons. Now I am completely besotted with this print but can't seem to find it anywhere!
    Hope you're having a great weekend :)
