Dress: Topshop//Boots: Zara

There can't be a post in a cemetery without a reference to The Smiths.. These photos were taken in Hampstead Cemetery. I'm always intrigued by the beautiful angel statues (though they do freak me out after seeing the weeping angels in Doctor Who), and find it fascinating reading some of the inscriptions- one that springs to mind is a family tomb: a poor mother who lost her four sons before they reached 25- including one in the Boer War and one succumbing to fever in Brazil.

On a more cheerful note, it's nearly the weekend. Tomorrow night we're having a belated Christmas work night out, then I have absolutely nothing planned..bliss.

  8. I love your hair worn down, it looks so pretty. That dress is gorgeous too, it's great that you paired it with opaque tights, something I wouldn't have thought of with white/cream before I started reading blogs, it actually works really well :)

    Have fun tonight!!
