A couple of weekends ago, Scott took me to the Harry Potter Studios in Leavesden for a belated birthday treat. It was belated treat, purely because we couldn't get an appointment any time nearer my birthday. The good bit about the whole appointment thing is that it didn't feel stupidly busy even though it was a weekend. It was a really hot day and I wasn't sure how warm it would be inside, plus I knew we would be going for a meal afterwards, so choosing my outfit was slightly difficult. I plumped for this dress I picked up in a charity shop for about £4, with a cardigan thrown in my bag.

I didn't really think about the colours of it, until Scott asked whether I was hoping to be picked for Gryffindor house, which is when I realised I was wearing a red dress with gold spots! Funnily enough one of the staff members commented on my dress being pretty, when the batteries died in my audio guide. It's really light and floaty, and I've had the occasional 'Marilyn Moment' in it, but luckily it has a slightly tighter lining which prevents too much embarrassment, as well as the ability to hold it down just by shoving my hands in the pockets. Genuinely cannot beat a dress with pockets. I don't recognise the label inside as I would love this in a few more colours - maybe another navy one to add the  the ever growing collection of navy-ness in my wardrobe.

These little shoes have been a firm favourite since their purchase, and £15 of a pair of cute leather shoes is bargainous in my opinion, plus anything in my much-purchased blush colour is winner for me - now I wonder if I can find a pair with a heel?
