Yesterday I dyed my hair a little darker than normal, mainly because I put too much purple on my mixing tray and it wouldn't go back in the bottle haha! I also dyed it quite dark as then it takes longer to fade, re-dying every two-three weeks is kinda annoying, I can't imagine the upkeep for someone who constantly wanted pastel hair. Apparently for pastel you have to dye it 1-2 times a week to keep the colour maintained, i just go dark and let it fade aha. I like dark purple hair though, it makes me feel extra greeb-y and like I need to walk around wearing band tees all the time, such as in this look. I've had this manson top for a few years now and as much as I love it, its a bit difficult to wear, I think its an XXXL and when not hoisted up with a belt is almost long enough to cover my knees aha! The sleeve also looks a bit odd with its oversizedness but I still love it as its a design I rarely see on ebay as I think its vintage, so I had to snap it up despite its size!
FULL OUTFIT: *TOPSHOP
CLEAR RAINCOAT - CROP TOP - SKIRT - PLATFORM SANDALS (out of stock) - THIGH HIGH SOCKS - GOOGLEY EYE BAG - SUNGLASSES
I really love this outfit, I don't usually wear primary colours, usually I go for a more pink-lilac kinda theme, but I feel like this is a really quirky way to pop all the primary colours together, with the platforms it feels super 90's! I've wanted a button up skirt for sooo long and I've been obsessed with the Topshop range for ages (they have rather a lot of button up skirts aha) I think this white corduroy one is my favourite but I might also invest in a blue denim skirt as you can never have too many of your current fav basic item!! Are any of you guys going to festivals this year? I might be going to one in September but I've not decided yet. As always, I was tempted by Download but I don't think the line up is that great this year, the only bands I'm interested in seeing are Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Lacuna Coil and 36 Crazyfists, and I'm not really sure thats enough to go for the whole weekend, sigh! Maybe next year will be more my taste.
As festival season is now upon us, I'm sure you're all currently shopping for your festival outfits! It just so happens that I am running a competition to win a £200 Topshop gift card for your festival look!
Comment below with links your favourite item/s from the Topshop Festival section!
Competition ends on the 8th June! Good luck!

Todays outfit is a little different from normal, I decided to go for something really cute and pink (ok maybe thats a normal outfit for me haha) with a bit of Mary Poppins thrown in for some reason? The outfit is inspired by the Nina Ricci "Les Delices De Nina" perfume and the event I visited a few weekends ago (post here)! I had a few bits and bobs lying around which I thought went really well such as the icecream bag from New Look which I unfortunately can't find on the website anymore, and this Epice scarf which has been lurking in my blogging box for almost a year now ahhhh, its so pretty and I feel it makes a very cute picnic blanket, it also matches the perfume packaging so well! I've also had this John Lewis umbrella for years and its never made its way onto my blog but I felt it went really well with the candy-land picnic look, it reminds me of picnmix bags aha! I'm also wearing my Meadham Kirchhoff cherry socks, basically everything is sweets/ fruit/ icecream themed!! I also bought the daisy hat and vintage underskirt especially for the look!

VELVET CROP TOP: EVIL TWIN out of stock similar @ MOTEL ROCKS
PLEATED TENNIS SKIRT: BETTY BONES
DENIM JACKET: CHARITY SHOP similar @ MISSGUIDED
PLATFORM PUMPS: ASOS
I've been really wanting to expand my tennis skirt collection for months now but I never seem to get around to it. Although I did purchase a black AA dupe on ebay and four months later it still hasn't arrived, I'm really annoyed as apparently they sent two because the first one got lost in the post. They still haven't refunded me, some ebayers are so irritating sigh. I did however find this really cute powder blue vintage tennis skirt on Betty Bones, at the time I didn't even realise that its actually a vintage Nike tennis skirt, I had to look at the label and I thought "whaaat Nike made super cute tennis skirts?? Yaaay!" I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing it a lot!
PURPLE JERSEY FLARES: *MOTEL ROCKS
PINK GLITTER CROP TOP: CHARITY SHOP similar @ PRETTY LITTLE THING/ MOTEL ROCKS
PINK BIKER JACKET: *STYLE MOI
VINTAGE PLATFORM BOOTS: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP
I saw these amazing flares on the Motel website the other day and was like ahhh I need them! I've been in two minds about flares recently, I've got a lot of pairs which I've collected over the past year but I'm still not sure if they suit me. I think fabric flares are more acceptable than jean flares at the moment and then gradually jean flares will work their way in there somehow. I have two pairs of Morgan jeans with the lace up front ready to go for when the Britney snake skin boot and full jean outfit look kicks back in aha!
I also bought this really cute top at the charity shop, I really love the shape but I'm not sure of how it looks on, but I like it, so I'm going to wear it anyway. I found a similar style also on Motel which now I also really want to get. I'm going to end up looking like a steps 1999 music video...
