i must become a lion hearted girl

Dress - Vintage
Blazer - Grandma's old
Over-knee socks - Seppälä
Shoes - New look
Bracelet - Dior (Gift)
Bag - Dad's old

Say hello to my new place to take outfit photos at! I don't live anywhere near it, but I go to the city quite often and have realized that the Leeds Town Hall stairs are almost always empty. So I'll probably stop by to take pictures at other times as well:-) And who doesn't fancy seeing lion statues every now and then.

Can I just say I love this dress. If I found it today, I don't know if I would shorten it. But I do like it this way as well as with a long full skirt as it used to be. And it's perfect for breezy spring weather with light enough fabric. Yet it's warm enough to wear on it's own, and I did ditch the blazer a couple of times. And I also took the over-knee socks and tights off at some point during the day... I clearly don't have a clue how to dress at the moment as I always have too little or too much clothes on!

You look like a doll in that dress, super cute. :)

P.s. 10 points for the Florence lyric-such a powerful line!
