belt: vintage (gift)
silver chunky ring: kukee

in case you missed the news I've got the keys to my new house and the renovations have began... EEEEEP!!!!!!

I'm half excited/half terrified at the amount of work that the boy and I have to do over the next month so if I'm a little absent on social networks and on here then it'll be because I'm wrestling a power drill... the joys!

on the plus side I'm really looking forward to doing some DIY's and crafty house-esq projects once we're in so hopefully I'll have lots of little posts to come over the next few months!

this is a little outfit I put together when I raiding the wardrobe, you may recognise the dress from an older post (when I first got it the weather was pretttttty darn chilly so I layered it up with high collar shirts) now it's warm enough to wear alone I took advantage as it's a really comfortable little number. I'm wearing some pointed flats that I unearthed a while back, they're so incredibly old I can't even remember where they came from!!! (it proves if you wait long enough everything will come back into fashion aha)

the necklace is from h&m who have some really affordable statement necklaces in this year, even though it's not the type of thing I'd wear on a daily basis it's nice to have some options! 

how's your weekend been?

ps: it's the last week to vote in the cosmo blog awards, if you have a minute I'd love you forever if you dropped a vote my way in category 7!! thanks so much for voting and for generally being the best gang of peeps EVER! (I'm already panicking about what to wear to the awards as I seem to be mostly sporting emulsion paint at the minute.. help!)
