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.

In the summertime when the weather is fine

The sun has finally got his hat on…hip hip hip hooray. Sorry couldn’t help myself. I am feeling so jolly now the sun is out, it generally just makes things so much better doesn’t it?!
I was shocked yesterday that I wasn’t for once getting caught in the rain without an umbrella (that has become a very regular occurrence) no, no this time I was caught without my trusty sunglasses.
Which you might think to be not that shocking, but they are usually a permanent fixture on my face, come rain, shine and sometimes complete darkness.
My favourite pair at the moment have to be my audrey cats eye ones from whistles, but I stumbled on these beauties in TopShop and had to snap them up.
I have been looking for some black circular retro style ones for suuuch a long time now.
It always seemed that every time I tried some I would look either like a bug that had not yet been discovered, or like I was wearing some weird swimming goggles. But I have to say, I loved these from the minute I saw them even if I do still look vaguely like a bug wearing swimming goggles?

Too much love for Olive and Frank

Aw so I have just discovered a brand called Olive and Frank….I cannot believe I have never seen their website before! Then, I thought that I may not be the only one… I had to share.

If you who haven’t heard or seen their website yet, you have to stop what you’re doing and check it out.

Think, vintage, embellished Peter Pan collars, cute vintage prints, lace dresses, ribbons, mixed with edgy jewellery and shoes…basically everything you could want from clothing.
I have serious love for this brand right now. 3 guesses where I’ll be heading when we finally hit pay day! These are in my definite list of purchases, which ones are your favourite?

Today I’m wearing

Today it is pretty chilly again…I think our great British summer has already been and gone. But, I’m clinging onto the hope it’s not over yet and we can still wear our summery pieces.

I have warmed up my summery midi skirt with a more wintry grey fedora style hat and textured grey tights. I also love the combination of navy and orange together, so have muted down the bright summer orange with a textured, navy leotard type top. (it has velvet bits on it, it’s lush) one of my prouder primark buys!

Penny’s for a pound

So this month I’ve been saving money and have really had to watch my spending. I have actually shocked myself and am doing pretty well.
As the saying goes, save the penny’s and the pounds will take care of themselves.

Well that’s all well and good, but it does then mean you have more pounds to spend. So, surely then it’s only right to invest in something. Which is why I’ve decided to invest in this little beauty. I know it’s a bit counter-active but I can’t help it.

I’ve been looking for the perfect leather for ages. This is it. I have been looking at vintage aviator type ones, as I sometimes think that newer leather can look quite stiff, even the more expensive brands. I also decided I didn’t want black, as sometimes they can look quite harsh and a bit too bikery (is that a word?).

This is perfect, it actually reminds me of a Burberry style I saw a while ago, but is obviously less then a quarter of the price. It’s got a beautiful distressed finish and just enough detail to make it classic enough to be the perfect Investment for the future. I absolutely love it. What do you all think?
Shame I’ve got to wait until next month to save enough penny’s.

Its from Whistles and is available now.
