dress : dorothy perkins | bag + belt : primark (yes, seriously) | shoes : valleygirl

arrrggghhhh this bag you guys! yes, yes. you've seen it before in tan. and a million other times in multiple colours and variations of size, yes. i get it, i have a problem. but, when i saw this pastel beauty in primark the other day, and for less than a tenner, i knew it was coming home with me. i was after a travel handbag for our austrian jaunt this week, and for one that would go with my backpack. well, this one ticks all the boxes!

anyhoo, while you read this, i will be wearing (a version of) this pretty outfit (depending on the weather) on the sound of music tour in salzburg. i grabbed this dress from the sale rack at dotty p without trying it on, thinking a dotty p size 12 would be ok for me, right? well uhm, it's actually quite roomy. which will be nice for a day of travelling about, yes, but generally pretty annoying. there's no way i've dropped to a size 10 - not with these boobs, so why oh why are dress sizes so inconsistent? wah. anyway, totally cute with this pastel pink rope belt that i bought for these types of situations. 

annoyingly, rope belts are the only ones that fit me right now also; i don't know how i didn't notice this weight loss journey as it was happening, and only after the fact, but it's incredibly difficult to wear most of my wardrobe now. 

bring on winter weight, eh!
