Double-sighted Scotch Youth

January is flying by, I can't believe it's the 26th already! The title is from my History of Unorthodox Psychology lecture today, we were looking at mesmerism and other related early 19th century weirdness...I wore my new dress today (bad Char...shopping before payday!) with my Luella cardigan and pearls, it was very Stepford Wives! The dress is actually the one from my shopping list, the new season stuff at New Look is actually (mostly) really nice, I'd advise you to check it out, if like me you're craving Spring dresses and such!

You can't really see in these pictures but I also bought some new knee-high socks in H&M on Saturday. The shoes are from Topshop and the pearls were a 21st present from my Dad.

Yesterday (Sunday) I headed back to my Mum's for a Burn's supper, she had about 10 guests as well as the family so it was a bit cramped around the table! I wore my other pair of new H&M socks, they're a bit of an annoying length but I was tolerate it as they remind me of the socks I wore to Primary school with my sandals and summer dresses!

I wish this etsy dress was just a little bit longer! The lace shirt is from ebay and the cuff was a present, the boots were a Christmas present from my Gran.
This was Friday's outfit;

I'm wearing the same boots, Topshop socks, a New Look skirt (which I hated when I bought it last Spring, but I'm warming to it...). The black top is from H&M and the cardigan is from Topshop, I think the headband is from H&M. The chain was thrifted.
Thursday's outfit (somehow I am really far behind on outfits!);

The shoes are from New Look, the socks are H&M as is the skirt, and the top is from New Look, the cardigan is Luella and I'm wearing the same thrifted chain.
Wednesday's outfit;

I wore my Topshop shoes and Zara dress with an H&M belt and thrifted chain, the jacket is H&m and I have no idea where the gloves are from but they make me look like a mime artisit! The brooch is from Topshop.
Oh and I thrifted the most awesome Rodarte-esque jumper thing, I'll show it to you at some point!

thank you honey :)
red tights would look great with your new dress, as it would really pop the red in your dress out!
I love new looks 'new look', some of their dresses are gorgeous, but unfortunately all the crew necks they have don't suit me!

Your first dress is really lovely. It is so girly and picnicesque! And the knee high socks are just adorable.
I really want a pair of lace up ankle boots but can't find them anywhere!
