Temt dress, Colette necklace, Betts shoes, Mulberry-inspired satchel, Vogue eyewear sunglasses

Happy Monday! Hopefully you are having a wonderful start to the week! I used to hate Mondays, but I don't mind them as much any more - the sting of a new week is eased slightly by having such good subjects. My weekend was crazy! On Saturday, my sisters and Mum and I went shopping and I decided to blow half of my work pay on two new dresses, a vintage inspired tea flask from Typo, a new magazine and a cute sweater top. I went into Temt (guys... this store is just... so good) and tried on two dresses that I couldn't decide on, so I decided to buy both. This one I'm wearing here is my 'Twiggy' dress. It's such a pretty little shift and I love the beautiful quality and colour of the fabric.
Saturday night was a blast too; I went out to dinner with some old and new friends to celebrate a sweet 16. We walked along the Esplanade and then had some cake in the hotel room. Yesterday Lily came over and we did multiple (hilarious!) challenges and you can watch my video here and the chubby bunny challenge here
Have you bought anything pretty lately? Please tell me! I'd love to know :) Lots of love xo

Hehe spending hard earned cash will not stop there! I'm always buying something pretty for myself...just because! Although last time I went something functional, a sports cardigan for the gym!

Gorgeous post! That dress is so lovely & such a versatile, multi seasonal dress. I love it. Your weekend sounds fabulous too! My most recent purchase(s) were some beauty bits, I feel a Mac binge coming on soon as well. Oh dear...some eyeshadows are just calling my name.

Have a fabulous week lovely!

Maria you look like such a 'little lady' in this number! It is so classy. I love temt too...but the only one close to me shut down and now I have to trek it to the city if I want to do some shopping! (which I usually do when I have breaks at uni when I should be studying. oops!)

Your weekend sounds like so much fun! I did a bit of splurging too, which I am quite guilty about. I bought some YSL foundation which is honestly amazing! I'm wondering whether I should post a review.

I am in love with this bag! Brown is such a versatile colour and this one is so effortlessly channelling the Mulberry look whilst still being individual :) Wonderful pairing of colours x
