Dress: Whistles via ASOS ~ Coat: Monki ~ Shoes: H&M ~ Bag: Urban Outfitters

Feeling Dotty;
  So i'm pretty much head over heels in love with this dress! I lusted over it for such a long time, but it was really out of my price range. Feeling pretty optimistic, I looked for it on ASOS, and there it was in the sale, half price! And so of course, I bought it! Sorry if you follow me on Instagram (charlestown92) as you would have seen quite a few pictures of it already, I really do love it that much! It's quite unusual on, as it has little tugs at the sides to cinch in the waist. But I suppose that's pretty handy after a large meal, ha! 
  As you can probably guess, I didn't actually wear this today, I was in my usual leggings and tee look for hardcore revision. But i'm not entirely cheating, I did wear this last night for my housemate's 21st birthday party, which was amazing. But yes, as of next Wednesday, I can banish my desk for a while and my leggings, and actually leave my house properly! I love Falmouth in the summer, if you have never been I would really recommend it. It's such a lovely seaside town, and i'm sure Ella Masters could vouch for me too when I say this!
  Right, back to revision! Oh, and TOWIE is on tonight, haven't seen it in such a long time! Has anyone been watching the Scandinavian drama, The Bridge, on BBC4? You really should, it's such a good crime/detective drama, i'm pretty much obsessed! 
  Hope you all have a lovely evening!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
(PS. Thank you to the wonderful Emily for these photo's!)

  4. Wow, you look stunning! That coat is wonderful also. ASOS is the best, I do the same thing, always looking on there if I see an item of clothing on another website in the hope it's there!

  19. I LOVE dresses with floaty but long sleeves, they're perfect for me for work as the AC is so erratic and a cardi is too much and short sleeves are too cool!
    I have shoe envy too!
