One short day...

In the emerald cityyyyy

I am absolutely drawn to greens/emeralds/turquoises at the moment and was of no surprise when looking for an outfit to wear to a family tonight, I came home with this...

I am in absolute love with this caped blouse, in real life the colour is much more of an emerald than a mint. I also love that it covers my arms a little but because of the split sleeves it still feels summery - I think this would be perfect to take away for the evening on holiday! The blouse is from river island, the ring H&M and the polish is M.A.C's peppermint patti (still my favourite!).

I bought my first maxi dress yesterday and I'm unsure as to how to wear it - how do you style yours? Mine is just a plain black racer back - all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Lots of Love

P.S Snaps if you know the title of this post!


  1. Love it, love the ring and polish too it's all so co-ordinated :-) I want to buy my first maxi dress too, love how they look on other people, just worried they won't look as good on me :-)

  2. Love the ring, I have an obsession with that kind of thing/colour etc atm! Gorgeous top xx

  3. Love the blouse - such a gorgeous colour.
    I wear my maxi dresses with heels as I'm 5'1 and would trip on the hem otherwise and with a belt to nip in the waist. I really like how feminine and summery they feel to wear :) x

  4. I want the blouse.
    Yes, yes, yessssss to the colour :)
    LOVE as per!


  5. Very nice! That is such a pretty colour indeed :) Wish maxi dresses suited me, I'm too much of a shorty for them haha. Oooooh and I recognise a Wicked song a mile off ;) xx

  6. this looks GORG on you,I am in love. Those colours are so up my street mrs. i think I want to try a maxi too just think I will look a proper ninny in one ( does anyone even say ninny these days?!)xxxxx

  7. I am all about sheer blouses lately! This is gorgeous and reminds me that I need to try china glaze for Audrey polish. I also bought a black racer back maxi (h&m) this week. I might style mine with a brown belt, lowish. And gold accessories :) x

  17. I'm sure you hear this all the time - but I was being a creeper and digging all the way through your blog since I looove it! - and noticed that when you had red hair you looked a WHOLE MOTHERFNIN LOT like the twins from Skins seasons three and four :) they were gorgeous and so are you!
