Cat Lady Dress and an Exciting Announcement!

As I'm sure you're all aware, the weather has been horrific lately so I haven't managed to get out and take any outfit pictures. Yesterday though was lovely and sunny (in the morning at least), so Jack and I headed out to take some. I fancied a little change and since moving into our flat, there was a little street round the corner that I'd desperately wanted to take outfit pictures. Jack and I call it Little New York as it reminds us of a couple of places we went when in the real New York. What do you think of this location?

As for the outfit, cat ladies out there, holla at me if you find a better dress than this! I've wanted one in this smock style for a while and the print just makes it extra perfect for me! (Tip: go a size up, if not two, as I got a M and it's still a little tight around the bust). Something from this outfit I can't fail to mention is my new name necklace from Punky Pins. I've wanted a personalised necklace for so long now so was so excited to receive this! And like I said, the sun was out yesterday so it was the perfect opportunity to sport my gorgeous new Retro London glasses from MyOptique. Keep an eye out as you can win a pair of your own on my blog very soon!

So now for the announcement. Last night I stayed up until midnight to check the final short list for the UK Blog Awards, and thanks to all of you and your votes, I am in the final 10 for Retail and Fashion!! Thank you so much to those who voted, I'm so happy!  I'll keep you updated on this via Twitter and Facebook so head over to those to see what happens next!

    That cat dress is super cute & same with the name necklace! I've seen lots of ppl with those lately - they look so pretty & personalized!

    Meadow, Heather & Mist I think'd be my top 3 of those ones but they're all such pretty colours! The silk matte sounds really intriguing too!
