31st August; Candy

Skirt- I made 
Top- Primark
Shoes- Topshop

My outfits seem to swing from wildly crazy to plain and simple...guess it depends on the weather and whether I feel daring or not. However I wanted to wear my cute lil skirt I made myself so dressed it casually. 

Despite living in Britain I haven't had a bank holiday monday because, of course, I've been working. What's everyone spent their day doing? Nursing a hangover? Watching movies? Probably better then my day!

25th August; Dolly Mixture

Jumper- Vintage
Skirt- Vintage 
Socks- ASOS
Shoes- Topshop

Am I a tiger?? Am I Lizzie McGuire?? Am I channeling a character from Chicago in my fishnets?? Who knows. Its kind of a combination of all three. I'm currently "night blogging" as I find myself with no time lately to sit down and write a post, summer is nearly over and where have all the days gone??! 

This jumper- to me- is the best thing since sliced bread and I wear it faaaar too much! Its crazy, colourful and crochet- the three C's that complete any item of clothing. And today I sassed it up with my vintage tiger fur mini skirt, because sometimes you just got to clash.

22nd August; The Fed

Dress- Textile Federation @ Urban Outfitters
Shoes- Topshop
Hat- American Apparel 

I love this outfit- just throwing that out there haha. So I've had this dreamy shirt/dress for a few months but I've never gotten around to wearing it (we ALL have those items in our wardrobe right?), I kind of pictured it for a night out but since I have no social life and am working most weekends, I decided to throw it on in the day time and style it with a pastel floppy hat. I love everything designed by the Textile Federation, and this is my favourite design yet <3 so colourful and crazy, its the perfect mix of both literal and abstract, which I looooove. 

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

13th August; Cake

Playsuit- Beyond Retro
Shoes- Topshop

Greetings from Cornwall!
So I'm currently blogging from a little cottage out on the coast, and coming to the end of my holiday with only a couple of days left, wahh. However its currently chucking it down with torrential rain so I'm staying in tonight and watching a film (after getting tremendously soaked at the Lost Gardens of white converse will never be the same), and finally getting around to blogging. I always find it harder to get photos when I'm not in my "usual" blogging space (i.e. my back garden) because i don't know where the best places to stand/where the best lighting is etc, so these were the only decent photos I got that actually came out okay. I'm wearing a "lemon-meringue" looking vintage playsuit, which isn't exactly the most flattering of ensembles but I'm embracing it, paired with more pastel-lemon sandals from Topshop.

Anyways, I'm gonna leave it there and depart with a picture of the beach from yesterday, when it was actually sunny!

5th August; Pastel Faces

Shirt- Vintage
Skirt- ASOS
Top- Topshop
Shoes- Topshop

My thing this summer seems to be wearing shirts as jackets...but i guess its the perfect combo for British summertime! Also how perfect are the colours in this shirt??!! I love them, the pattern is to die for. I found it on Depop for like £15 which I thought was decent! I own way too many vintage printed shirts and they're coming a bit of a cliche which i hate...but each one is unique in my wardrobe. 

I'm off to Cornwall this weekend for a week on the coast, and am super excited! Hopefully the weather will be nice and I'll manage to get some decent outfit/blog photos whilst I'm down there- nothing like a change of scenery for a bit on inspiration. Teehee.

1st August; Surfs Up

Shorts- I made 
Top- River Island
Shoes- Office
Sunnies- Topshop

Totally feel like I should be on the beach sunning it up somewhere in these shorts I made. However I am at home and usually spending these sunny days at work, meh. This was one of those outfits I was excited to wear- and blog- and then i got in front of the camera and the results were like "lol nah"...5ever unphotogenic life. I do love a good colour combo though, and the yellow in my shorts compliments my top perfectly. Plus my Topshop transparent sunnies finally made it out of the house- I chose them because they look like the UNIF sunnies i will never afford. 

Hope everyones having a lovely weekend!!

28th July; Gypsy

Skirt- Vintage
Top- Primark 
Necklace- Topshop
Shoes- Zara

I admit this is a daring outfit for what we in Britain call "summer" (i.e. the days when its not raining), my legs felt a tad chilly. However this skirt is perfect and I've been dying to wear it ever since I bought it on Depop! I love my grey suede skirt and this this definitely a dreamy upgrade! *heart eyed emoji* I paired it with this gypsy style top I got from Primark (Not somewhere I usually shop but I found it for £2 and couldn't say no), I've decided the off shoulder style is most flattering for me so i'm stocking up! I've realised aside from the skirt, this outfit is made from 100% sale buys...I don't know if thats a good or bad thing :/ I've now gotten in the habit of only buying things on sale, aside from vintage I can't remember the last thing I bought that was full price!!!

So despite not going on a hot and sunny holiday this year, i'm off to Cornwall with the family in a couple of weeks! Should be a nice break, and hopefully we'll get some decent weather.
