To rock the boat they sail a while...

Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone, hope you have all enjoyed the time off work/day off school. For students like myself there isn't really much made about bank holidays, I don't have any lectures or seminars this term anyway and still had to spend the day revising for my first exam on Wednesday (eeek)!

I thought I would share with you all what I wore today-



I have had this dress for absolutely years and still love it! I bought it from a little shop at the Clothes Show Live held at the NEC in Birmingham. Sorry for the lack of a full shot of the dress, everyone is busy revising so my little arms had to take on the task of capturing the outfit. The length is just right, finishing about an inch above the knee, with a little petticoat underneath the dress sticks out a little too. With the brown ribbon bringing it in at the waist (tied in a bow at the back), the cute brown buttons and the gorgeous pattern of the fabric too I feel really feminine wearing it!

Do any of you have any favourite/staple items in your wardrobe that you have had for years and still love wearing? Good luck to anyone else doing exams this week.

Also I'm very excited to hear about the comeback of Passion Pit, this is off their new album and I really like it!
