Adrift





 I wore this outfit last weekend and it's one of my 'go-to' styles. I often wear dresses and layer my thick jumpers on top. This one is actually pretty thin, so perhaps not so suitable for winter but I love it anyway. I have a huge pile of wooly jumpers which need to be worn before summer sneaks upon us, although it feels weird talking about that now, and I doubt the UK will get much warmth anyway!
The dress is from New Look, and I picked it up last year in the sale for a measly £4. I have a similar one in black with a polka dot collar and as much as I love the peter pan collar, I find the sleeves rather annoying. I don't personally like half sleeves, especially when they are elasticated as I find them a bit too tight on my arms. The black dress I have isn't really a dress, more of a tunic as it is so short but this one seems to be a good length.

My hair is getting so long! I really like it but it does get in the way sometimes and I'm always lying on it/catching it/pulling it in some way. My boyfriend and Mum convinced me last time to get it cut, and I got quite a few compliments so I'm not sure what to do! I hardly ever wear my hair down anyway so it's a bit pointless having it long I guess, and I'd get it cut professionally this time (I'm a cheapskate and do it myself normally!) and probably get some layers cut in. A bit longer than shoulder length I'm thinking, as I'm told it makes me look older. What do you reckon? Do you think my hair is nice long or a bit too schoolgirl? I'm absolutely hopeless at decisions so a few more opinions would be lovely :) It grows really quickly anyway so if I get it cut it wouldn't take long to grow back!

  1. I love, love, love long hair! But I know that too long hair makes alot of people look very young, especially if it's not styled particularly well!
    I think you should get an inch or two off and definitely get some layers in there :) I am so jealous that yours grows though! Mine is useless xx

    1. I'm going to get a trim, maybe an inch or two like you said and put some layers in! No idea why my hair grows so fast, I dont do anything with it really! xo

    I love your hair, I would do anything for my hair to grow faster :(
    Maybe cut two inches off? That way, it's not too much off, and not too little?

  4. I love your long hair! I have been trying to grow mine out. And I don't think it's schoolgirl. I like it a lot. I think you should keep it. :] But maybe get a trim or cut it a bit to add some choppy layers?

    I also need to try wearing jumpers over dresses. You pull it off so wonderfully. <3
