10.08.12 - outfit of the day

vest: 50p, primark
skirt: £1, charity
shoes: £20, garage
satchel: £6, primark
So i wore this to town today (more shopping, shame on me) and now I have the worst blisters from these shoes, typical! But i did enjoy wearing this because i felt a bit out of my comfort zone wearing the shoes with the skirt and stuff, yeah i dunno it's good to stretch how far you'll go with fashion.
I'm in such a good mood today because the boyfs back from mallorca and we have a party tonight where i'll be seeing him so totes excited! and i'm going for dinner with one of my besties at m&s soon so all round good day! xo

09.08.12 - outfit of the day

shirt: £3, charity
shorts: £3, charity
sunglasses: 50p, primark
shoes/creepers: £20, garage
socks: £1, H&M
Proper loving this weather/this outfit woooo. Also, was getting super annoyed with my old photo location (bedroom) and wanted to take them outdoors and i'm really liking taking them down here in my garden because i can get more of the outfit in and it's just better, but alas it'll probably start raining soon but i'll make it work! Oh and i'm finally trying to break my pretend creepers in. I bought them months ago and wore them to school and got the worst blisters ever all over my feet, but i'm adamant on breaking them in now! 
Also, what do you think of the bigger photos? Personally I always prefer a blog with larger photos and when i figured out how to do it myself I was so proud! But let me know whether you're a fan or not :) xo

07.08.12 - back to school

back to school

Oh polyvore, it's been too long. I'm not usually one to crave, or even tempt myself by looking at expensive beautiful clothing, but tonight I gave in and created what would be my back to school, autumn/winter wardrobe if i won the lottery tonight. My dress code for school is business dress in black, grey white and navy although i tend to throw on either cranberry or forest green with it to gvie it a pop of colour. Although there is a significant amount of highstreet among this too, a lot of it costs more than I make in a year, but a girl can dream.
Now I give myself the challenge of re-creating this from *cheap* highstreet (primark/H&M/newlook) and charity!  

07.08.12 - recent purchases

coat: £30, primark
scarf: £1.99, charity
leather: gift (£30), zara via ebay
dress: £5, primark
tee: £8, primark
bag: 7.50 euros, portugal market stall
shoes: £7, H&M
phone case: £12, uo
ring: 15 euros, portugal market stall
brooch: free, dad dug it up in the garden

wow it's not until i decide to blog about what i've been buying recently that i realise how bad I am! This is about a quarter of everything i've bought recently, my bedroom's stacked high with carrier bags of stuff i haven't even worn/ put away yet, oops! 
But i'm planning on buying a new camera soon because i'm really not happy with the quality of the photos my current one takes, and starting A2 graphic communication in september it really would come in handy (so i'm gunna have to quit spending so much on clothes). I'm currently looking at the Nikon D3100 (I don't want to spend over £500), if anyone has it I would love to know if it's any good, or of any other DSLR's that are on the cheaper side :) xo

04.08.12 -Portugal 2012

I've recently got back from a week in Portugal with my mum, and the weather was just gorgeous, and actually getting a chance to wear summer clothes was pretty great too! These are just some photos i took on my phone but it shows most of what i got up to, beach, cocktails, getting dressed up etc. I'm already so so excited to go on holiday with my girls next year, but we still need to decide where to go, so if anyone has any good recommendations (think cheap, cheerful and lots of partying!) then please let me know :D 
Since getting home i've constantly been wearing baggy jumpers, leggings and autumnal colours and patterns thanks to the British weather, but i'll be sure to get back into the spirit of summer and make some outfit posts soon! xo 
ps. sorry for not posting for 2 months, oops! The bad weather dappened my spirits and the outfits just really weren't worth showing!
