I will trust in time that we will meet again

Dress: Topshop      Belt: Primark      Necklace: gift

This is a fairly plain outfit for me - don't worry, I did liven it up a bit with printed socks (see below).
Since being back in Cardiff, I've spent most of my time in the Cardiff Student Media office, trying to get various jobs done (and just catching up with people), so I've not really had the need to wear anything too glamorous!

I know pretty much every blogger and her, um, cat has this dress, or some variation of it, but it's so great for comfy/casual days. It's pretty much a blank canvas, too, so you can style it up however you fancy to create any kind of look really!

Socks: Urban Outfitters      Wedge Hig-Tops: Matalan

I decided to wear my wedge high-tops to turn this into quite a sporty look (and elongate my legs, score!), plus the aztec print socks because I needed a bit of colour somewhere! These high-tops are normally so comfy, however I think I just pushed my luck a little with the fifteen minute walk to and from the office; my feet were definitely starting to protest on the walk home. Oh well, worth it!

  1. Sometimes simple is best. Love that you wore those adorable socks and wedge sneakers to elevate the outfit! And I totally get it - sometimes fashion hurts and our feet pay the price for looking beautiful but c'est la vie!

  2. I do have another version of the dress but I love it even if it is a basic haha. I also wore wedge sneakers yesterday for the same reasons as you! They're so darn comfy.
