OOTD: Pretty Prints

Firstly I would like to start this blog post by thanking everyone who left a comment on my dress to impress blog post. It was loving to log on to such lovely, heartfelt comments. They made my day. It's lovely to know that we're all going through the same body image issues. That doesn't sound right. What I mean as it's nice to know that we're not alone. I'd also like to add that I try to respond to every comment so please check back because more than likely I've responded. I wish that blogger would make it easier to respond to comments but until then please check back.

On to the actual post: 

Yesterday I wore one of the h&m dresses which featured in my previous post, and I loved it. I felt super girly, and it was just so blooming comfy. It could possibly have become my new favourite outfit. I was unsure about teaming it up with the cardigan at first, in fear of a pattern overload, but I feel that it worked pretty well. I picked up the cardigan from New Look in the sale for only £10. It has 3/4 length sleeves which is perfect for me as I'm constantly rolling mine up. 

I french braided my hair and added one of my new homemade, DIY clips which I am also in love with. I don't know about selling these beauties... I end up wearing them before I get a chance! Never mind try before you buy, it's more like try before you sell! Well at least it's free advertisement.

I love wearing my hair like this. French plaits are kind of my go to hair style when I don't want to use any heat on my hair, or if I need something quick but pretty. I love how plaiting the hair to the side gives it a more relaxed, casual yet summery feel. 

Finally before I left the house I remembered my bird necklace and needed wanted to wear it. I bought this about a year ago now but only came across it the other day whilst clearing out a cupboard. I also found some other bits and pieces, so keep an eye out for those in an up coming post. Oh and I always wear the silver necklace, so I didn't feel the need to take it off just because I was wearing another one. That's just me! 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Speak Soon, 

P.S. Before I forget the leggings are from Asda, and they are the most comfortable leggings I have ever worn. They did not fall down once all day! I really recommend them. And for only £6 a pair, a complete and utter bargain! 


  1. You look so pretty! I love the outfit, and your hair! I've never been able to get my hair like that... any tips?
    Also, love the clip, so think it would be a good idea to sell them :)

    franky xxxx

  2. Your hair looks so lovely like that, I wish I could get my hair like that but it's so thick I don't think it's possible :(
    The dress is gorgeous and really suits you :)

  3. I love the necklace!! :)

  4. You look so pretty! The cardigan you teamed it with works really well! x

  5. agree with selling the clips - lovely! :o)
    outfit looks awesome - wish i could wear different patterns and look like this! xx

  6. snippets&scribbles - thank you for your lovely comment. In regards to the hair it just takes practice. I used to sit for hours in front of the TV just playing with my hair. I did notice that it works better when you don't look in a mirror. Hope it helps. x

    Caz - the thicker the hair the better for a french braid! I'd love to have thicker hair as I'd be able to make a much prettier plait. It's funny how we always want what we don't have though. haha. x

    Grace - Thank you, I'm so glad I re-found it. I'm happy you stopped you say hi. x

    Tess - Thank You, New Look and H&M bargains FTW! x

    ClimbingtotheMoon - I'm definitely going to set up my new online store to sell my clips etc. I'm just so happy that people like them. And thank you for your lovely comment, but I'm sure you could wear the same thing and look way better, you're so pretty. x

    daisychain - thank you so much. all these comments today made my day. I've been walking around with the biggest smile. x
