Lets talk about…..DUNGAREES.

YES, THEY’RE BACK! We all had a pair when we were little. And probably wore them with some teeny tiny leggings in some form of velour, or floral print, and a pair of Doodles (you know, those canvas little shoes with the t-bar strap that came in loads of different prints?!). Thats right, I’m talking about DUNGAREES. Or overalls if you absolutely must (bf had no idea what dungarees were. Maverick.)

I had spotted a pair on Sabo Skirt, a site I was introduced to in Australia (see my post on it here), and considered buying a pair, but concluded the blonde tanned skinny model was probably the reason they looked so good, and waiting weeks on end for them to be shipped would probably end up in an evening of self loathing and throwing handfuls of chocolate at the mirror before stuffing my face and drowning in a chorus of fat slurs at myself. But when I spotted a pair in Primark for £12, I thought they were worth a shot. I won’t lie, it took me, NO JOKE, three trips into the store to actually get around to buying them. Each time, I picked them up, walked around with them, and then changed my mind. But tonight, I took the plunge! (Mainly because I panicked when I saw that stocks were depleting and I thought time might be running out!).

OKAY SO I ACTUALLY ADORE THEM. Do I wish my thighs were thinner? OF COURSE. But hey, that’s something I think I’ll always have to live with. Yet still, elephant thighs aside, I love these bad boys. They’ll be ideal for summer with a bandeau underneath, or a white or striped tee! I’ve definitely got my smug face on – the one where I get a complete bargain that I wasnt expecting to pull off.

Topshop has some similar pairs too, in faded wash denim, and I’ve seen them in Forever 21 as well, I think, but to be honest I’d recommend grabbing a pair of Primark’s finest. They have them in loads of colours, not just denim. I’m almost considering snapping up a white pair. Who would have thought it!!

Please tell me someone else has jumped on the dungaree bandwagon like me!!!

Here they are!

Anyway, late night blog posts must be short and sweet! I need sleeps!

That Weirdo With Five Colours In Her Hair

Oh hey! Hope everyone has survived the random storm that hit the UK earlier this afternoon! In classic British style we have gone from waking up in muggy, greenhouse-like conditions, to welcoming a thick black cloud of doom, which soon erupted in some of the most violent thunder, lightening and hailstones I have seen in quite some time. Now, like I said, we did this in our classic British way, so you can imagine what the weather is doing now two hours later? Yep, you got it. Glorious sunshine. What are you gonna do! Its a nightmare for fashion, this weather, I tell you. I left for work yesterday at 4pm, in a tshirt, jeans and runners. After a gruelling 7 hours I emerged just before midnight to be greeted by what first appeared to be the Grand Canyon. But it was in fact, Oxford Street after a rain storm. Considering my options on how to get home, canoe being a legitimate contender, I opted to paddle to the tube, my white tshirt now soaked through, and I looked like I belonged on Daytona Beach partaking in the yank tradition of “Spring Break woohoo”. Anyway, the point of that was just a weather moan. Its so temperamental this time of year!

But hey, enough of that. We have certainly had a very decent chunk of sun so far this year, so I really shouldn’t be complaining. It has prompted the high street to stack its shelves high with floral headbands and adorable accessories. I went into Topshop yesterday (though I had my head firmly in a no-spending mood, as my finances are still dealing with the post-Australia hangover), and came across their range of amazing flower garlands. You know the ones, that sort of sit on your head so you have to not move too much when wearing one. I tried one on, with a very sheepish look on my face as I felt I was being judged by onlookers (I have a confidence complex with things like that. I don’t dare to be daring all that often!), but I actually fell in love with it! Now, i’m not saying they’re ideal for every day wear, but with a maxi dress, or loose tee and denim hot pants on the beach or on holiday, they’re amazing! Yes, they’re hideously over the top, and probably too big for some people’s liking, but I’m seriously hoping these take off in the fashion stakes, and I want one BADLY! My birthday is coming up so, fingers crossed! (yes, my TWENTY THIRD birthday. Don’t. Just. Don’t.)

Here are some of my favourites!

1. Rose and Lily Garland, £16

2. Lilac Garland, £16
