September Heat





Dress - H&M
Belt - Primark
Chain - Unknown
Hamsa Hand Necklace- Gemsinvogue

Now there's two words I never thought I'd put together! One minute I'm wearing 80 denier tights and chunky knits and the next I'm baring legs and arms again! The British weather has a lot to answer for. Not that I can stay too mad, because bright warm days always lift my mood.

I've packed away most of my summer clothes so I had to improvise for this burst of hot weather. I bought this H&M dress back in May as a rush buy before jetting off to the USA and as it turns out I love it lots. It falls really nicely and when cinched in at the waist with a belt it makes me feel all floaty and hippyish.

I lovelovelove my Hamsa Hand Sideways Necklace from Etsy seller Gemsinvogue. Its so tiny I forget I'm wearing it. To be honest I didn't know what the Hamsa Hand stood for until I googled it and found out it was a protection symbol and 'hamsa' in Arabic literally means 'five'. The number 5 has always been my "lucky" number, it springs up a lot in my life. There are also 5 people in my close family so this was a lovely surprise and made the necklace mean even more to me!
You may have noticed I love gemsinvogue jewellery and my recent giveaway (ended last night) was a piece of hers, the infamous sideways cross necklace that I also adore.

No hard work put into this outfit. I've been relaxing in the garden today, I finally finished One Day, and I've been taking a few shots with my new Holga lens. Not to mention working lots on my Uni projects.
Off out for a drink and a catch up with some friends tonight. Just going to sling my Toms on and a cardigan although I don't think I'll need it its so warm!

  7. I am much happier when it's warm weather too. But i am so confused, I now keep thinking it's June. Then reality hits and I remember it's October. (I'm not a fan of A/W! Although if it continues to be like this for a few days longer, I may be converted) x

  10. Aha I love how UK bloggers are all suddenly like 'wtf am I supposed to wear?' because the weather has gone crazy :P I'm not complaining but I also packed my summer wardrobe away! Love this dress is so cute, and I didn't even notice the smaller necklace until you mentioned it. It's so cute though and like the little meaning behind it :)
