The Little Blue Dress

Hello! I am finally getting round to posting a new outfit post on my blog. If you read my last post 'Five Happy Things' then you will know that I had been feeling uninspired and in a bit of a creative rut as of recently, therefore causing a lack of blog post's and instagram post's. I didn't want to rush photo's and content that I didn't care about or feel happy with. So a break was needed and a break if what I had...

I have now spent the weekend moving into my new flat with my boyfriend and I couldn't be happier. I feel so relaxed and content here already. I have managed to fully unpack everything and already feel like we have made our space our own. I am also extremely happy about the fact we may have bought ourselves a TV for our room yesterday so now we can watch Netflix on a big screen from the comfort of our own bed, the dream. I am now feeling very tired after a busy weekend moving, carrying boxes up and down stairs and unpacking and just ate the most incredible salted caramel pudding that melted in the middle as a little treat that was definitely deserved.

Anyway, I definitely went slightly off tangent there with the point of this post, so let's get back to it and focus on my outfit for a minute. This little blue dress is the simple, classic summer dress that my wardrobe needed. It is such an easy wear and the versatility of the piece has allowed me to wear it for both a sunny day spent in the park, as well as a night of cocktails and dancing for my friend's birthday. These photo's were taken a couple of weeks ago now when the weather was actually a bit sunnier in London. The summer weather is slipping away, so I am wearing this dress at any opportunity that I get and I will definitely be packing it for my holiday to Italy next month! I teamed it with these Gucci inspired loafer's which I have had since February and have been a firm staple in my wardrobe ever since. The basket bag is a bargain I picked up from Primark and it is a perfect size for fitting a blanket and magazine's in for spending a day in the park.

The dress and the loafers are from River Island and are now actually in the sale. They are both unfortunately sold out online, but you might still be able to find them in store.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Until next time, Lauren Rose xx

I've been stuck in a bit of a creative rut recently, hence the lack of blog posts and instagram photo's. I have been generally struggling for inspiration and feel like I have nothing to post about. I hope I am not the only one that has ever felt like this?! Life has sort of taken over a bit and I think my brain feels just too darn busy to come up with new blog post idea's and content.

Instead, I thought I would write up a different post from me today, so no fashion post here but instead I am going to share five things that are making me happy right now..

1. HOLIDAY ~ In just over a month I am off to Italy for a week with my boyfriend and I could not be more excited about it. I really feel like I am in need of a holiday, some time away to really relax. We are staying in Sorrento so we are also planning to do a little bit of exploring, with a day trip here and there to Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Positano and maybe even a boat trip to Capri. I am sure lots of pizza, pasta, ice-cream and wine will be consumed and hopefully I will return with a bangin' tan as currently I am as white as a ghost. 

2. MOVING ~ In a couple of week's I will be moving flats for the third time since moving to London and I am extremely excited for the change. I will be leaving my current flatmate's behing and I am really sad that I won't be living with my best friend anymore, but I will be moving into a new flat with my boyfriend. I'm going to be starting to clear out and pack up my flat this weekend in preparation which also excites the organisational person within me and excited to have a new space to make our own. 

3. LONDON ~ I wanted to include London in this list because I have been feeling really settled and happy here recently. Living in London away from my family and best friends in Scotland has always been hard, but since my boyfriend moved down a couple of months ago, I feel so much more content living here. 

4. FAMILY ~ Last weekend I went to my cousin's baby shower back in Scotland and it was the nicest day. My cousin lives in Abu Dhabi so I hadn't seen her since she has been pregnant so it was so amazing to see her with her bump. We played fun baby shower games, literally showered her in gifts, ate cake and just had the loveliest day. Even though I live at the other side of the country, coming home for family event's as often as I can get up is so important to me and I came back to London feeling oh so happy.

5. FRIENDS ~ Last night I had a dinner and wine night with my favourite girls and I made a chicken pie for the first time ever. I used a Body Coach recipe, so it was slightly on the healthier side but it tasted amazing. V proud of myself. Chilled Friday nights spent chatting, eating and drinking with friends are the best.

I hope you enjoyed a little bit of a different post from me today, I would love to know what is making you happy right now?! 

Until Next Time, Lauren Rose x
