Been watching cowboy films on gloomy afternoons
This time last week I had just handed in my last ever university essays and was singing in the shower getting ready for a night of celebrations. Since, I've tackled my university's Guild Awards, tried not to cry through an acoustic Miles Kane gig (harder than you'd think, folks - thanks to Bido Lito for hosting the JD Roots competition I won!), and this weekend Jazmine and Olivia came to stay, to send me off in style and take a few outfit photos at the same time.
I've been meaning to photograph this Dahlia dress for a while, having ideas of running through fields of gold in the warm evening sunshine... so we went to the Bluecoat, and took the best alternative Liverpool could come up with. I love the lace overlay and mesh details on the sleeves, making it dressy enough to leave accessorising to a bare minimum (although I couldn't resist adding my Rock n Rose ring which I thought I'd lost over a year ago, weird things turn up inside your stationery containers!). I do have a habit of wearing party dresses during the day, particularly when high-street brands like BANK Fashion offer such pretty ones that you can eye up on the way to Tesco, but when you consider how much fun they are to swish in I reckon it's perfectly acceptable.
I'm not really sure what my plans are for the rest of my time here, but as I've only got a week and a half I better make some quick! Reckon I can coerce my mum into helping me tick the "scouse night out" off of my bucket list?
