There's a snake in my boot...(not really)

Top - Topshop
Shorts - Topshop
Boots - Primark
Bag - Vintage
Sunlgasses - Ray Ban
The best thing recently has been waking up in the morning and reading your lovely comments on the way to work! Thank you so much. I promise I will get back to you all this weekend. It's my last day at work tomorrow (woo and boo at the same time) so it has been very busy times and to add to this, I have been frantically baking all evening!! These shorts I'm wearing are probably about 5 years old - I have a bad habit of not throwing stuff away. My dad bought me the boots from Primarni (they were £18, come on Primark what's happened?!) and even though it was a rather hot day, I just love wearing them with these shorts. I did find myself stripping off the tights and boots and running through the sprinkler to cool down though. Making the most of the beautiful weather. Uh oh...what's that I smell? Must dash!!

Gold! Always Believe in your Soul...

Boyfriend Blazer - H&M
Shirt - New Look
Velvet Skirt - Topshop
Tights - H&M
Sneakers - Converse
Sunglasses - Ray Ban
I got this skirt in the Topshop sale quite a while ago. As much as I do love a bargain, I just couldn't bring myself to rummage through those racks. Also, I knew that I would just buy items that I had no intention of wearing. I did however, see this gold velvety goodness staring at me but I still wasn't sure if this would be an impulse buy. Plus, I have a gold metallic skirt from American Apparel and just couldn't justify buying one similar. I found myself having a mooch around in the last few days of the sale when it was much calmer and the skirt was still there. After much pondering (okay 20 seconds) I bought it. My metallic skirt just doesn't look as good.

Lycra Dreams

Skater Dress - American Apparel
Boyfriend Blazer - H&M
Bag - Vintage
Sneakers - Converse
Hat - Urban Outfitters
This is one of my favourite hats but it's been squashed in a box when we were moving for so long that it's completely lost it's shape now. Boo. If anyone has any tips of how to get it back into shape (even though it looks okay in the pics, it isn't) I would be really grateful! Kind of going through a skater dress phase at the moment. And what a surprise, this ones lycra. Yay! Also picked up the bag on my usual charity shop hunt. I love the gold detailing on it so much, yet another good find.

Kick It

Leggings - Primark
Nikes - Office
Waistcoast - H&M
T-Shirt - Topshop
As I was strolling home past my favourite charity shops, I saw this bronze sequined waistcoast glaring at me from the window, I knew then I had to have it. Just my luck, the shop is closed. Okay I'll try again tomorrow. Day two...too late. Closed again (screams inside.) Finally, I made it in time but guess what? It's not there! Nooooo. As I was about to walk out of the shop with my tail between my legs, I though okay I'll just ask and see what happens. As the lady frantically searches through the rails and comes up with nothing, I see the sequins! Shouting at me from the dusty floor. Hurrah!! A bargain at £4.50. Get in. Oh and these Nikes, I bought last year and have never worn (I have a habbit of buying things and never actually wearing them. Must stop this) but they just go so well with my new find! What a great day.

Seeing Red

Denim Shirt - Primark
Sneakers - Converse
Leggings - eBay
T-Shirt - Urban Outfitters
Hat - Topshop
I really do love these leggings, but finding something to wear with them is such a challenge! I try not to think about it too much and just see what happens, if I overthink it, I will probably come out looking like I dressed myself in the dark (that could be an interesting post, I might actually try dressing myself in the dark and see what happens.) The weather is really picking up so I'm hoping to branch out from my front room and maybe get some nice shots out and about. Stay tuned!

Pastel Skies

Pink Swaeter - Marks and Spencers
Shirt - New Look
Ankle Socks - Topshop
Suede Wedges - New Look
Sherbert Green Shorts - Vintage
Necklace - Mikey
Well, it was officially the first day of Spring the other day, and the weather is definitely showing it! The sun really does brighten up my mood, especially in the morning waking up to the sun shining through the window. So it was only a matter of time until I brought out the pastel shades. Mixing it up with some lime green vintage culottes. They really do remind me of my Girl Guide uniform (unfortunately those culottes were navy instead of this lovely shade of Green) I wonder if they'll consider updating their uniform? Probably not. Anyhoo, I've been rummaging around in my wardrobe a lot lately and come across some real babies I forgot about. More tomorrow!

Half and Half

Skater Dress - Urban Outfitters
Tights - Topshop
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell
I completely forgot about these tights! They are so fun! I remember the first time I wore them, I got a lot of stares but hey, they make me smile and I love things that are just a bit different. I have actually NEVER worn this dress either, despite buying it about 4 years ago. It really makes my day finding old items in my wardrobe. Time to give them some lovin.

Black Milk

Galaxy Leggings - Black Milk
Nirvana Vest - Topshop
Crochet Vest - H&M
Shes - Jeffrey Campbell
Couldn't resist another pair of these galaxy leggings! I love the prints so much, literally want them in every colour now. They are better quality lycra as well, much more shiny and thicker material. Guaranteed people will touch your legs in these. My American Apparel leggings are really tight that in certain lights can look slightly see through because they have stretched so much! Thankfull I don't have that probably with these bad boys. Phew. Oh and did I mention the print on these leggings is actually of a photo taken by NASA of an actual galaxy?! Cool.
