Dissertating

Drum roll please….I am currently writing the conclusion to my dissertation!!!! I still have a lot of revisions and editing to do but the bulk of the writing is done! I am restrained yet full of glee. It’s a winning combo.







dress: H&M / tights: Target / purse: H&M / sunglasses: Target / sandals: Chinese Laundry

This Saturday I hacked off all my hair! I am really thrilled with the results but I have some back photos from the week before I cut my hair to work through so it’s be a bit before you see photos of me with the new cut in regular rotation. I will post a pic as soon as I can though (spoiler: it’s very short and very red and you can see a sneak peak over on Twitter).

I like the sound of red and spiky!! I'm so jealous... I wish I was writing a dissertation. I've been trying to get on a doctorate her in the UK for ages, but it's so competitive - good luck with it :-) love Natalie xx

Congrats - I'm so happy for you. Love the combo of your tights and the sandals. Almost thought they were one piece. Gorgeous colour.

I love the dress and I am a huge fan of tights. I love it when someone wears dark colors, but then has a pop of bold color with an accessory!
