Petite Pink






(Dress/ Top - Glamorous/ Skirt - Republic (old)/ Pink Coat - SheInside/ Shoes - New Look/ Watch - Daniel Wellington/ Handbag - H&M)

Hey lovelies!
It's always a tense moment when you put some of your favourite clothes in the wash, especially those delicate pieces you just know might shred or shrink with the slightest increase in temperature or speed. I'm always crushed when an item reappears too sizes too small and sadly, last week, the washing machine claimed another one of my dresses.
Yes, the pink floral top I'm wearing today used to be a dress which fell to my knees. I'm now lucky if I can get it past my hips! But hey, let's try and look on the bright side - Ok, my dress has shrunk but I've now gained a new top, which is perfect for sunny, summer days. The white collar was what originally attracted me to the dress in the first place, so I'm just happy I still get to wear it and show it off in all it's glory. Paired with my pink coat and leather skirt, it has proved to be quite the pretty little outfit. So if you ever find yourself, like me, freaking out and battling with the washing machine, don't worry. There are always other ways to keep wearing your favourites! :)
More soon,

Helen

  23. Omg! YES. I always have a little panic before loading my clothes into the washing machine and sometimes (okay I lied. I ALWAYS) get my mum to double-check. Sorry to hear about your dress but on the plus side you've gained a lovely top :) X
