A leopard cannot change its spots, nor a zebra its stripes.

This week has been a little bit bonkers, you may have seen on twitter that me and my man have been decorating our bedroom!  It's all very exciting but learning to wallpaper having never attempted it is really tough! We've painted and my almighty wardrobe (will be posting about that soon) is nearly finished... just the carpet and the full wallpaper to go!

Luckily the weather has been okay so we've had the windows open all day to help our paint dry, fingers crossed we can get it done soon!

Oh I do love a cute dress.  I'm a bit of bugger for collecting day dresses I just feel far more comfortable in a dress than trouser sometimes.  This little gem from Traffic People totally checks that box as its not too dressy but still more than casual.

 With the weather being sunny and rainy (typical British summer) I've loved wearing my little day dresses and this one from Traffic People has been ideal.  It has a jersey lining with a gorgeous floaty material over the top and comes in a delicate pink too.

Nail Polish - N07 Gel Nail Colour Neptune- £6.50

As the dress is grey I could of gone a number of ways with the  colours that were added to the look, but I decided to start throwing in rich tones just to introduce an AW13 vibe.  The ballet pumps are from New Look and these give a real warmth to the outfit.

Sorry the post is quite short but to be honest painting and decorating has knocked the stuffing out of me this week!  I can't wait to have a mini lie in... well before I cycle to the gym for Body Attack and on that note I best hit the hay!

Have a lovely weekend all!


  1. Looking forward to seeing pics for your new bedroom! I am so bad a t decorating...just can´t get it together!

  2. The wardrobe is awesome I have been spoilt a bit! The other half has built it from scratch... Luckily it's huge so all my clothes will fit... Yay!
