lurking in the shadows


TOP - TOPSHOP/SKIRT - AMERICAN APPAREL FLEA MARKET/SATCHEL - PRIMARK/COAT - NEW LOOK/CHELSEA BOOTS - PRIMARK/COLLAR NECKLACE - TOPSHOP/SHADOW - c/o MY BROTHER
This is such a girly outfit for me - as a rule I'm not a massive skirt wearer (however I'm trying to get back into them), and teamed with a peachy pink top and a necklace I'm feeling extremely feminine! 
I bought the collar necklace in the Topshop sale a few weeks back, and was really chuffed as I had eyed it up full price but begrudged paying £14 for a necklace. I think collar necklaces look lovely, and these glittery ones from Dolly Bow Bow are especially gorgeous.
I would like to apologise for my brother's shadow lurking around on me in these photos - we took them early this morning before we went out and the sun was low in the sky, bloody winter. It was also in my eyes, hence the squint! When will summer be here?!

Okay I'm definitely keeping my eye out for that coat next time I'm in Primark, it's gorgeous! The necklace is very pretty too, Topshop jewellery is so overpriced but I always end up shelling out for it because it's so good! xx
