I Like it Lime

One colour that I keep seeing in the shops is lime, and I really love it. At first I wasn't sure if it was the right colour for me, I imagined it to suit brown haired individuals really well and just make me look washed out.
However, I was shopping for an outfit for my friends birthday and I stumbled upon a beautiful lime dress. I'm pretty sure I ran over to it from across the room and snapped it up straight away.

Topshop never fails to disappoint when looking for a particular outfit. And this time I felt like I had found THE dress I didn't know I was looking for. As sad as it sounds nothing is more satisfying than finding the perfect piece of clothing you wanted.

In the picture the dress looks slightly more yellow than lime, but that is my poor quality camera- apologies again. I love the crochet, I feel like that is also a big trend this summer so this dress ticks both that and neon off the list.

This one is petite, and I thought it was going to be really short but I really like the length, my bottom was covered, although bending over in it would have scarred a lot of people.

I felt like at £46 it may be a little pricey for most but considering I fell in love with it there and then in Topshop, I couldn't leave without it.

I wore it with a gold statement necklace and matching bracelet from H&M, and my friend's black wedges and black clutch which is from Zara.

I initially wanted to wear it with my orange heels from Zara but I had left them at Uni while I was at home. I really wanted to make it into a neon colour pop outfit.

YSL Limited Edition Perfume

My sister came back from holiday recently with a few extra luxuries from duty free. One of them was this beauty, YSL Paris Premieres Roses. It was love at first sniff, I wanted it for myself. 
Just after that I popped into Debenhams and found it, on offer! £25 for 125ml eau du toilette. I usually prefer eau du parfum but this is strong enough and lasts as it is. 
An absolute bargain, I needed a new perfume and for £25 you can't go wrong. The floral scent is just right for summer and with a bottle that big it seems it is going to last all season. My favourite new edition to my personal perfume collection.

#OOTD Intern Interview Outfit

On Monday I had the interview I had been waiting for. It was for a years paid placement at LancĂ´me PR and ever since I have been thinking about it non stop, I want it so much. 
But what do you wear to the interview of your dreams? Instead of being conventional and wearing a black skirt suit or dress I decided to wear my tailored short dungarees with a printed shirt. I kept it conventional in the sense that I wore black but I wanted something that they would remember without being over the top. 
I think it worked well, and was a nice twist on office wear - as well as being a key high-street fashion look but I suppose you can be the judge of that!

Old School Days

I'm taking it back to primary school days with my new shoes and white socks. This Topshop buy is just what I was looking for for summer, they even have a slight heel which gets me up to about average height. 
These shoes are so versatile and literally go with any outfit, you can wear them with socks, tights or barefooted. 
The best thing about these are that I got them discounted. A website which sells Topshop and other named brands at as little as half the price. This website is a goldmine. However, not all the items are brand new and some have defects, just be sure to read the description. 
Returns are also near enough impossible, you get one week to register it and send them back, but I don't feel like that is enough time to decide whether you want them or not. 

Apologies for the poor quality pictures.
