Blue Broderie Anglais

Dress: Topshop  |  Bag & Boots: Urban Outfitters

Don't ask why I wore boots in this weather! I'm not sure myself. If I told you it was easier to cycle in them you wouldn't believe me, I'm just that stupid I guess. At least my body was cool while my feet melted, I love the detailing on this dress, especially the scalloped edge at the bottom. 

Today I cycled into town with the aim of handing out CV's to try and find a summer job (again) but of course I went shopping. I expect you're beginning to sense a trend here, five out of all ten of my posts mention shopping! I just can't seem to help it, and I have nothing else to do at the moment, soon it'll just be post after post moaning about work and the like I'm sure... although lunch breaks and days off might feature the odd shopping trip or two, hah.

I popped into Toni and Guy for a fringe trim on my way home. Trim sounds like such a lovely way of putting it, 'oh I just had a little trim' it's a shame that a better way of describing what I had done was 'oh she only hacked it all off and has left me looking like I cut it myself when I was drunk.' She was fully aware of my cow lick, (oh dear I'm going to have to explain what a cow lick is to you lucky few who don't have a clue why I've gone from hair to farm animals in one sentence.
Cow lick
A projecting tuft of hair on the head that grows in a different direction from the rest of the hair and will not lie flat.
When searching for a definition, I found that Wikipedia has tips for those 'more serious about cow lick management' it suggests waxing!!! Haha. Can you imagine if I waxed a patch at the front of my head? sexual. Anyway...!) but of course she knew best and cut it far too short and now it won't sit down! I've got a springy section of hair sticking out of my forehead now. Love it.
