I really want to invest in some proper Converse's but know if I get them before going to my festival I will ruin them when I am there so am holding off until after August! Primark stock a lot of colour knock offs and I thought these grey one would go with a lot and it doesn't matter if they get trashed!
I couldn't choose between the two so I got both. These are smock, tunic type dresses and I went for a size or 2 bigger than what I am as I wanted a floaty effect plus these look super nice with a belt to clinch it in and it makes your waist look tiny (mega plus)!

I saw this skirt on the New Look website ages ago and they never stocked my size. I popped into town the other day and found it in my size AND half price! It had to be done. It's lovely and structure and perfect for a night out but I also like this with some vans/fake converse and a black t shirt!
These last bits I picked up before going to Rome last month, I wanted a baggy top to travel in and really love the vest I chose along with white shorts although I feel ever so rock in it. The skirt is so pretty. So pretty that my Mum made me order one for her too! It nothing like anything else in my wardrobe and I think it's a great piece for nights out or casual with sandals and a white boyfriend tee which is how I've been rocking it!
I'm really trying to not go shopping as much anymore as I really want to save some money! I find it all to easy to waste £40 in Primark "because it's cheap". Yes it is and that's why I find so many of their dresses shrink, which on a 5"10 girl means her bum cheeks will be out. So I'm trying to find more investment pieces; things that are different that I can dress up or down and that I know will last. I think I'm set for summer pieces now and have banned myself from clothes shopping until September now when all the A/W 13 will be out!
