Primark Dress / M&S Tights / Topshop Socks / New Look Boots / Pandora Bracelet
Unless you've been hiding under some kind of fashionless rock for the past few months (and I really hope you haven't!) then you'll be aware that the biggest trend for aw13 is definitely tartan- this Scottish print is everywhere and can be found on everything from scarves to socks to full on outfits. While I've always loved tartan and have been sporting a tartan scarf since I was bought one for Christmas last year, I've only just made the jump from accessories to fully adorning myself in outfits of the checked print and this Primark dress has to be my favourite tartan thing ever. I refer to it as the tartan dress because it was worn on Primark's aw13 adverts and since then the whole country has gone crazy for it. I was lucky enough to pick it up on a naughty lunch time shopping trip in Chelmsford and it's just as perfect as I wanted it to be. A really flattering a line shape which clinches in at just the right place with an adorable preppy collar and cute puff ball sleeves- for only £15 I can't get enough of it! I'm wearing it here for the Next blogger workshop simply styled with dolly socks, cut out boots and braids. My dad said I looked like a 12 year old school girl but Vivianna Does Makeup and Lily Pebbles, who I was lucky enough to meet at the workshop, loved it so I think I'll take their comments on board. Sorry dad.
Talking of Primark I've had a really amazing week as I did a Christmas video shoot for Primark on Friday with two of my besties Nick and Faye. I'll be doing a whole post on this once the video is live but there are lots of fun snaps on my Instagram if you want to have a sneak peek. Other than that I've had a rather successful week at work and a rather lovely weekend with my boyfriend which included a Queens Of The Stone Age gig at Wembly on Friday. Ah life is pretty damn good right now!
Are you a fan of the tartan dress?
