Floral Pleated Dress and a Floppy Hat!

11 May 2012
Dress: Chelsea Girl by River Island ~ Hat: New Look ~ Wedges: Peacocks ~ Sunglasses: H&M

My 'William Morris' Dress;
My first, and most definitely worst exam was today, but it's now over and so I never have to study British Politics again! Hooray! (Well, one of my modules next year is called 'Thatcher & Thatcherism, but shh!) For some reason, I was so nervous about it, probably because it was my least favourite module, and I didn't feel overly prepared. But oh well, summer feels so close now, only three more exams to go. Plus, the weather in Falmouth today has been lovely, so sunny and warm! I definitely wanted to spend a little bit of time in the sun, and decided to celebrate getting the worst out of the way with some outfit pictures! Ha! How amazing is the print on this dress, my housemate Natalie (who studies Textiles) called it a William Morris dress, and it really does look like some of this work. The pleats on the skirt are so tight too, it's a really pretty effect! 

Hmm, there's something I want to say, but I feel very silly saying it, however everyone always says 'if you don't ask, you don't get' so here goes! There's a little thing called the Cosmo Blog Awards coming up, and there are some really amazing blogs out there that definitely deserve to be nominated! I know my blog doesn't have the most followers, the best pictures, and that there are SO many amazing blogs out there that probably deserve it more than me, but blogging is something that I've really come to adore in such a short space of time. It's become such a big part of my life, and it's something that I truly love doing! It really would be a dream come true for me to even be nominated! So, if you would like to, I would LOVE for you to nominate my blog for Best Newcomer, (which you can vote for here). 

Love, Charlestown xoxo.
(P.S. Do you like my little Monroe moment going on there? Wasn't staged, promise!)

  14. I can't believe that you have so many exams - I only have one! Although it is 100%, and I do have two deadlines for essays that still loom :(

    I love the print of your dress however - lightens an otherwise dull mood!

  15. Oh, I remember studying British politics for AS Level and it led to my decision to drop History. How awful! You look so beautiful and that dress is so pretty!
