The Lazy Day Dress

Monday, 1 September 2014

Lately I've been having a few 'lazy days', lazy being used in the terms of getting ready and looking presentable haha. I've been spending days just chilling  at home doing some sewing and starting to determine what I need to take back to uni for my final year (scary stuff!). Usually when I have a lazy day I tend to chuck on a pair of trackies/ sweatpants and one of my comfiest t-shirts. However recently I have loved wearing this grid patterned smock dress I picked up from Topshop a few months back. I'm a bit sceptical about smock dresses on my body as I am naturally broad so feel like they aren't the most flattering of dresses on me. However I think this one isn't to bad! It comes up huge as this dress is a size 10, I would normally wear a 14/16 but that size swamped me when I tried it on. It's such a light dress and is super comfy. I love the combination of the lilac shades of purple and grey together. I can't resist a bit of purple as you know! I never thought I would wear dresses on days where I'm not doing anything but it appears I rather enjoy it.
In terms of hair and make up I literally am so lazy! If I'm not going out then I choose to not really put make up. I may put a little bit of mascara but lately I haven't even been doing that. I love make up but I think it's important to let my skin breathe from time to time. Most of the time I am comfortable with venturing into public without make up on even if I look like I'm ill (obviously there are days where I don't want to). My hair I usually just brush and leave. I washed my hair last night and just left it to air dry. It's naturally curly like this and I'm kind of digging it lately. I've got into a routine of applying some hair products that I think are really helping maintain the health and curly nature of my hair whilst I attempt to grow it longer.
I need to get out of these lazy days as I got back to uni in what a couple of weeks now! I'm not ready for third year at all!!
