ariel the little mermaid

I wish i was a mermaid...

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I dunno bout you guys but Im sick of grey skies, cold days, dark evenings..
I wanna be lying in the sun, swimming in seas the colour of my coat...
I wish I was mermaid.. I always loved Ariel from the little mermaid with her long red hair and amazing voice..alas when I sing I sound like a screeching cat..











Coat: Motel, dress: sample, scarf: Avoca, Tights c/o Tabio, Satchel bag: c/o Matalan,
brogues: M&S limited Edition.
RIP my green Mui Mui glasses im wearing here..the leg snapped off the other day and cant be fixed.. :(

These photos were taken just before I dyed my hair in case you're wondering..my hair really does seem to be a different colour in every post..lol.
This dress is a little designer sample from my work, we work a season ahead so i snapped this summer 2011 item up in Sept 10 and had been keeping it for more sunny days. But I was sick of grey and neutral tones so decided to break it out early.. it probably shouldve been toned down with a black coat but Im never one to go with the norm..what you think aqua blue dress, coat and scarf too much? lol.. xo

  15. The aqua and red hair really fit the mermaid theme. Even if you can't sing like Ariel you can still look like her! I love the spotty tights too.

  16. I'd either like to be a mermaid or a bird, either would be lovely.
    I am wishing the sun to appear, the little blue skies we have had recently have got me way too excited- BRING ON SUMMER

  17. I may join you in becoming a mermaid. There is nothing wrong with sounding like a screeching cat when singing in my opinion! I love your tights by the way, they look so starry :D

  19. I love all the shades of blue in your outfit, just stunning! I know what you mean about the weather, it's bumming me out a bit too. I wish I was a mermaid quite often, I finally have mermaid length hair to go with a pair of seashells I suppose but I don't see myself swimming any time in the iced over ponds and chilly beaches :(
    My condolences on your glasses, too, they are/were so cute.

  20. The dress looks lovely on you and I'm a firm believer that colour should SO be busted out to cheer things up on wintery days! Also, I think you'd make a perfect little mermaid! Maybe after she loses her voice? Kidding! ;-)

  22. i use to long to be ariel! i was discussing with my friends the other day how when i was a young child I'd torpedo up one end of the bath and sing 'PAAAART OF YOUR WORLD' like I was ariel on the rocks and the waves/bath water were crashing against me HAHAH

  40. This is so sweet. You look like a mermaid! I get told sometimes that I look like one, but I remember when I was a child sitting in the bathtub playing in the water pretending I had fins. Then when I went to camp in middle school/early high school My hair was so long (like now but longer) that I used to cover my breasts with my hair saying I was a mermaid while running around in my underwear. I was a much different girl back then (not modest at all) haha. Anyway so we can be mermaid friends in the sea together okay?? Shall we?
