Cobalt.

My first outfit post of the year! Valentine's day is slowly approaching and the only thing I have to show for it is this Heart print shift dress, who needs love when you can have clothes ey? Moving on from the sentimentality and back onto the clothes. I promised myself that i'd play with colour more this year instead of draping myself in black all the time and ironically i wore this very bright outfit to my crit (assessment & presentation) because i thought, well... if i dress well, at least i'll feel good if i fail (i joke! failure is never an option kids!) but in all seriousness, it's wonderful how confident and happy you feel when you're in clothes you really enjoy. 

The heart print dress is from BANK and the blue tones just make my heart sing, I won't bore you about my love for Shift dresses, but if you like you can see what I wrote about another pretty damn cool shift dress from BANK here. Because it's cold as a motherlover in England at the moment, layering is essential and i've found myself reaching for turtlenecks in every shade under the rainbow (i've yet to acquire a mustard, navy and green turtleneck yet but that will happen soon..) but i did find this cobalt coloured beauty in the primark sale for a measly £3 can you believe it?! The price of an averagely made coffee at your favourite coffee shop! Bargain or what?! I got so excited by all the blue that I had to throw on my Eye See You necklace from Sour Cherry, It's probably one of my most worn necklaces, it's bright, it's bold and it grabs people's attention. Perfect.
