Cool colors and cold ass mornings!

I have been wearing blue a lot lately I love the contrast of it with my hair. Pretty soon my skin will be a nice shade of blue as our morning temps keep on dropping.
I picked up this dress recently at Forever 21's summer sale for $7.
Another pair of knee highs and one of my favorite pair of trainers.
I also love this patch work dress I found for a measly $12.  Look out Holly Hobbie there's a new gal in town.
 I scored this hat for 5 quid at Second to None and Vix just sent it to me.  Thanks sweetie! 
 This dress makes me want ice cream, now!
My hand does look a lil blue.
 but the sleeves are my favorite part.
On a side note, I have beat the bank at their own game of low balling our house for our refi, they just had to re-do the appraisal in our favor.  Never, NEVER, give up when you believe you are right~ It might just save you $82,000.

YAY, good job beating the system with your refi. Make em work I say.

Your hair looks gorgeous straight and sleek in this post. Beautiful show of colors as usual. What is it about that dress that makes me want ice cream too?

That pretty blue print on the first dress is gorgeous, but I must say my favourite is the patchworky maxi dress, it's beautiful! And with that fabulous turquoise hat from Second to None (I remember it well, it's stunning!) you are looking just amazing! You deserve ice cream, lots of it! Gorgeous ring too.
Well done on dealing assertively with the bank - you go girl! xxxxxx

Your socks + shoe combination in the first outfit rocks my world.
I put a blue streak into my hair again for the same reasons. It just clashes so well. :)

That dress is so Holly Hobby like you say, I loved Holly Hobby when I was little. And well done for winning your battle with the bank, good to see it can be done if you're determined enough. xx

Vix said...

Feck the system! Well done you! Your attitude and perseverance certainly paid off there, a lesser woman would have just agreed and been thousands of quid down.
You look so summery and gorgeous, if I didn't love you I'd be jealous! the first dress is so vibrant and lovely & the Holly Hobbie number sets my heart a fluttering!
Speak soon!
Love you! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well done with the bank crap! You did awesome! I love the patchwork dress and you're right, blue looks absolutely amazing with your hair.

you look gorgeous!! I'm so jealous of that dress but it looks so darling on you, how could I be envious for long. It looks made for you. We're a pair of Studio Ghibli princesses! xxxx

Congrats on your house re-fi. I HATE them all and anytime a real person wins, I'm ecstatic. You're right-blue and pink look great together. The first movie I ever saw was Walt Disney's Cinderella, and that's what I remember-pink and blue!! Magical.
