WhatLauraWore: Kate Middleton Dress

Tonight I thought I’d share with you a couple of photos of the outfit I wore on Saturday night when I went out in town with the girls.  I never intended to wear this dress.  I was out shopping during the day and picked up this dress and a pair of plum leggings.  I thought the navy blue dress reminded me vaguely of a casual version of the blue dress Kate Middleton wore.  After trailing round the shops I just couldn’t find anything else to wear so I thought I’d make the most of the dress.  Its something I wouldn’t usually wear on a night out and I genuinely felt pretty from the the inside when I went out– a confident girl is a pretty girl.

Hair extensions from Foxy Locks Extensions

My fellow blogging friend Naomi of Diamonds ‘n’ Pearls also has this dress.  We’re very similar dress sizes but we’re different shapes.  I’d recommend checking out her post of the outfit she wore at the Simply Yours press day here as this will give you an idea of what the same size 26 dress will look like on someone of a different shape to me.

I hope you’re all having a great week.  Its been a bit of a hectic one for me but very enjoyable.  I have a day off tomorrow so I’m going to do a little shopping and spend some time with Michael.  I must go to buy a new contour powder as I’ve just ran out of my beloved Hoola by Benefit, I want something a little different so I’m going to nip to Space NK to see if they have anything to offer from their brands.  All of the powders I see around at the moment are just too orange, I need something a little muddy!
