OOTD - Anchors & Checkerboards :)

Hey there my cupcakes! Having a good week so far? Not long to go now & oh joy of joy’s I found out that I actually have this Friday booked off! Woo hoo & huzzah for 3 day weekends! Don’t actually have anything in particular planned, just needed to take all my holidays from work before the end of this year & had me a few saved up :) May pop in to The Oracle Shopping Centre in Reading for a day of browsing/shopping (window only!) with the mumma bear & of course some nom nom food stuffs ;D I have a few NEXT vouchers left over from  my birthday that I am just itching to spend on a pair of dazzling shoes so will enjoy having a looky there!
Now I know that I’ve been following a particular theme with the last few posts…anyone heard of a certain Models Own Beetlejuice collection?? Anyone?? ;p Hehe sorry about that, just got a bit overwhelmed with the dazzling beauty of these polishes, I am absolutely loving them & my feelings have not dampened in the slightest! The first three have been big hits with me & I still have two more puuurdy polishes to show you dolls but I thought I’d inject a bit o’ change & post another OOTD today :)
                  Dress - TK MAXX, Black Leggings - River Island, Black Tee - Primark

So this here dress is another gem that I purchased from…yup…TK MAXX! I told ya loves, I absolutely love this place! Black & white is one of my fav combos & this dress delivers just that & it goes without saying I just adored the cute anchor motif, giving the dress a nice nautical touch :D  Ahoy Sailor!
The black & white checkerboard style (that’s what they remind me of!) shoes are one of my favs & were purchased from Matalan a while back. Another dark horse of a store actually, where I’ve found some really lovely bits & bobs in the past! They have a habit of slipping off every now & again but a bit of tissue stuffed in the pointed tips puts paid to that little problemo ;)

Of course no outfit is complete without a bit o’ sparkly goodness! So for accessories to go with I wore a sparkly beaded choker that I picked up from a random jewellery boutique, a pair of black beaded dangly earrings from H&M & a chunky black heart ring which was given to me by a friend :)

Lotsa love & hugs!
