I just had to share these beauts with you. They were one of those accidental/perfect purchases you stumble upon whilst you are wondering the shops when you are supposed to be ‘window shopping’…oops.

I absolutely love the green and gold combo. They are so fun and dressed up my simple tee perfectly! I also think they have quite a vintagey/ retro vibe. Perfection.

Leibster award

20130822-165116.jpg

So I have been nominated by the very lovely http://thegingerrules.wordpress.com/2013/06/15/berlin-style-diary-day-4/ for a Leibster award. Yay is what I have to say, thank you so much I’m really happy my little blog has been recognised.
For those of you that don’t know, the Leibster awards are a really fun thing to help promote new upcoming blogs that have less then 200 followers.

So these are the rules set by the wonderful bloggers before me-

1. Link back to your nominator

2. Answer your Leibster questions given to you.

3. Nominate 10 more blogs that have 200 followers or less.

4. Think of 10 fun questions for them to answer

5. Go to their blogs and pass on the good news glow.

So here goes, these are my answers:

• Chips or crisps?
Definitely chips, in fact any food that you eat with chips is amazing . Fish and chips, burger and chips…case in point.

• mini, midi or maxi?
Midi…I’m not keen on my legs so I never wear mini’s unless I’m wearing tights and I always find I’m a bit too short for maxi’s which can make me look much shorter and heavier then I actually am.

• Summer or Winter?
Hmm In terms of fashion I prefer dressing for winter, I love layering, tights, boots, jumpers…you can understand my love. But, on the other hand I hate the cold, I can’t cope. So in my ideal world it would be lovely weather but everyone is dressed in winter clothes.

• Cats or Dogs
Dogs and cats

• Heels or Flats
Heels no flats, no heels, no flats…both?

• twitter, Facebook, Instagram
I am the only person in the world that doesn’t really understand twitter, Facebook is great for keeping in touch with people, but I probably prefer Instagram, I love photos and find it the most interesting…nice to have a spy on celebs too.

• Boys or girls
I have a mix of boy and girl friends. Much more balanced that way.

• Sequins or fur?
Sequins and fur would be interesting

•Birthdays or Christmas?
Christmas, I love the whole Christmas season rather then just the day.

• What do you want to be when you’re older?
Hmm well I am currently designing and setting up my own sleepwear and loungewear business called LaLaLoula so my aim is to be working full time on that as soon as possible.

Love double denim

I am loving double denim looks at the moment. For me, being the shortest person on earth, I find that it can be quite a heavy look. So, I teamed my beloved Levi 501s, that were given to me (free!!!) with this lovely Whistles chambray shirt.

I think that the lighter weight of the chambray makes it a lot easier to style and doesn’t make it too overpowering.

I topped off my outfit with my trusty TopShop hat, which I can’t get enough of at the moment. It literally goes with EVERYTHING. And finished the look with my favourite Rimmel lipstick which I posted about a little while ago.
