I know you haven't seen much of me lately, and I know this isn't the first time. And you know what, it probably won't be the last. But I just want you to know that I still love you and think about you all the time. I know, I know, those words may be a bit hard to swallow, especially with all the times I've let you down before. You're just gonna have to trust me.

The reality is that I probably won't have all that much time for you in the weeks to come - I've got lots on my plate, with hen's nights, consecutive exams (to study for) for uni, weddings, and then four weeks of full time clinical placement. Oh, and you know, 16km jogs in between (I'm training for city2surf, which is only 14kms, but I'm trying to work on time and account for the added struggle of heartbreak hill). My toes and ankles are currently crippled and I have blisters on my feet. I just need time to take care of myself right now lol. 

Because I've been jogging so much, I've been finding myself dressing up less frequently - living out of canvas bags stuffed with random assortments of clothes for quick showers & changes.

Here are a few days I did manage to make a bit of an effort. On the first, I woke up wanting to put something pretty on. It was fairly chilly out though, so a long sleeve and stockings were the way to go. I absolutely adore this dress, though I rarely get the chance to wear it - has such a pretty/hippy/vintage/ladylike feel to it. And it cost me less than a tenner. 

 Batwing Lace Dress: SaintShylo; Belt: Forever21; Boots: JLH (Jennifer Hawkins for Siren); Necklaces (layered): eBay.  

Of course, for uni, the heels were replaced with flat boots from Windsor Smith (my faves atm). Actually to be completely honest I can't remember if I wore this to uni or not - I may have just been having a lazy day and couldn't be stuffed teetering around in stilettos.   

Of course it was freezing, and the long sleeves, being batwing & lace, were not all too warm. so on goes the thick chunky knit grandpa cardie (Forever 21). Snug as a bug in a rug.

A slightly sunnier day. Another dress I'm currently Adoring.
 Dress: Dotti; Belt: Forever21; Boots: Windsor Smith; Bag: Betts. 

Alrighty kids, that's it from me tonight. Will write again when I have the chance, promise. x.
