Happy As Can Be - She likes dress

I've had this dress in my wardrobe for nearly a month now and just not had the right occasion to wear it and didn't really know what to pair it with. I wanted to wear it with a t-shirt but it didn't look right with the mesh panel so I dug out my favourite smart blouse and come up with a slightly St Trinian's look. My old school uniform was black and white and the addition of a satchel definitely made me feel like a school girl. I have suffered through both new St Trinian's movies just because Paloma Faith and David Tennant are in them and I adore both of them.The dress is a bit of a bargain for £20 and would look great with a blazer and I might even try wearing a ribbon tied under my collar when I wear it next time.

I've been on the hunt for these shoes for ages. They sold out in my size in New Look online and I couldn't find any in store but I discovered them on ASOS and snapped them up straight away. They are the perfect height, have a nice sturdy heel and will go with everything. They were also only about £17 with a discount code and I know they will get a lot of wear. I've got the bug for court shoes again now after years of flat shoes and fancy a pair of French Connection Juines.

The post title is borrowed from this song which reminds me of my trip to New Zealand a few years ago. I've been listening to it in the sunshine in my back garden with the volume turned up really high.

  3. Very cute, that really works using a blouse underneath. Instead of ribbon, how about a 'Kentucky Tie'? Try BJs Western Wear online, that's where I got one!

  10. Sometimes when crocheting a pattern, a video can be much more helpful than
    reading the instructions. The intent was for PDF files to provide a way to distribute documents electronically and have
    them display or print consistently regardless of
    the type of computer system. Its easy-to-use format allows anybody to search for
    their favorite books online.
