over or under?

Black and white stripe bodycon dress


Overdressed or underdressed, which is better?  ‘What to wear’ dilemmas.  One of those #firstworldproblems.  Cue the texting to find out what everyone else is wearing beforehand, deciding whether heels are a go-er haha.  We’ve all done it!  I’d rather be slightly overdressed and look like I put in a bit too much effort rather than not enough though, in most cases.  Any excuse to wear a cute dress and heels, not gonna lie!  Seemed about right for a girly night out last Thursday.  I found this dress in H&M last year for a tenner and picked it up with no occasion in mind whatsoever, because why not.  Knew something would come up.  🙂  I can never remember whether vertical or horizontal stripes are supposed to be the ‘good’ ones but these work a lotttt better than horizontal ones on me!


dress: H&M | boots & clutch: Primark


The cat was absolutely determined to make it into every shot!  At least he co-ordinates. 😛  To live a cat’s life , what must it be like eh?  Window gazing must be so taxing.



Somehow I’ve managed to end up with a little backlog of blog posts to share, so bear with me if things seem a tad disjointed on here over the next week!  I thought my Easter holidays were gonna be fairly quiet but that seems to have gone out the window.  Had some (really fun) unusual days lately that I can’t wait to share, and more to come!  All ideas of being organised, revision timetables blah blah are long forgotten haha.  Doesn’t seem to be going too badly though; still managing to be mostly productive-ish!  Even with several super-lazy (for me) lie ins til 8:30 am.  Initial migraines aside, Insanity has been going pretty well too.  Meaning I’ve stuck to completing the workouts every day, not meaning they’ve been smooth sailing!  I’ll save a full workout ramblings for another time though!
