JACKET (IT'S ON SALE) - AMERICAN APPAREL // SKIRT - POP COUTURE* // SHIRT - POP COUTURE* // CONVERSE - ASOS // WATCH - CASIO via AMAZON
Such dodgy photos quality-wise, but the weather was having none of it and I really wanted to do a post, so my room had to do! Inside photos are not the one with my camera! It HATES the indoors. It's really time I started saving for a DSLR; which ones would you recommend? 
This is this shirt's second appearance on here, but it's honestly one of my favourite pieces at the moment! I've worn it at least twice a week since it landed on my doormat a few weeks ago, and that's saying something as normally I'm not bad at rotating my wardrobe! The skirt is another Pop Couture gem - it's a S but comes up quite big, so I just cinch it in with a belt. It's very similar to the AA circle skirts with the little button at the side which gives it a huge tick from me - I'm a sucker for an American Apparel dupe! But I think this one is a bit longer, which is handy because I've almost purchased a circle skirt on numerous occasions but always put it back because it literally just about preserves my modesty. Just.
In other news, it's now half-term which means only two exams to go and then I'm FREE. Literally cannot put into words how good that makes me feel.

Good luck to everyone else currently struggling through exams at the moment!

current ebay wishlist

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Today I thought I'd share with you a few bits that are currently hanging out in my 'Ebay' bookmark. Yes, I'm after one of those CĂ©line tees even though they've probably been and gone by now, and yes I need those white Ebay wedges. I saw the pricey versions in Office many moons ago and vowed that I would save up and buy myself a pair to wear in the summer, but now these cheap Ebay versions are here and I think I actually prefer them! And I'm also aware that the coral/brown wooden ones are basically exactly the same in style but they would also be lovely on holiday! Decisions, decisions. Regardless of what I may want/need in my wardrobe, there will be no treating myself until after exams (I need something to motivate myself); so just three more weeks to wait until I can satisfy the shopaholic within me!

What do you think of my Ebay finds?

among the daffodils


BLOUSE - FASHION UNION* // JEANS - TOPSHOP // COAT - TOPSHOP // NECKLACES - ADORNING AVA* // BAG - TOPSHOP via NEXT2NOWT // BRACELET - TOPSHOP // CONVERSE - ASOS
Quite a simple, casual one today, but I just haven't been getting dressed up for anything recently! Jeans and these platform converse have pretty much become my uniform as of late, I'm afraid! I'm loving this oversized white blouse kindly sent by Fashion Union. It's a little bit sheer, and is made out of a really nice fabric that feels lovely and gives it a gorgeous shape; you definitely don't need to up size, as I went for a 10 and it's the perfect amount of oversized. It's going to be a great piece for summer (if we ever get one) as well as the winter months; despite the long sleeves it's very airy, and I can envisage it layered over some kind of neon crop top like one of these or this from Missguided. They also do it in a lovely bright turquoise colour. I've also been really enjoying these two little charm necklaces from Adorning Ava. They're nice and simple, and look really good layered up under some heavier chains as well as going solo. Also, bargain haven Next2Nowt currently have this bag in stock for a fraction of the Topshop RRP here and here so act quick if you fancy one!

off the beaten track

SLEEVELESS JACKET - TOPSHOP (via EBAY) // JEANS - TOPSHOP 'JONI' // CONVERSE - ASOS // T-SHIRT - CHOIES* // BAG - NEW LOOK // NECKLACE - TOPSHOP // WATCH - CASIO via AMAZON
It feels like ages since I last posted (exams and revision overdrive is 100% underway), but I got a spare few minutes this afternoon to snap some photos! I received this lovely sheer cut-out blouse from Choies a few days ago and absolutely love it. I got a medium and it's VERY snug, almost to the point of will-it-rip-if-I-move-my-arms-too-fast territory, so I'd say the medium is a size 6-8 and if you're more of an 8-10 you might want to opt for a large! But it's so lovely - I'm a sucker for a white t-shirt and the sheer panels just make it that little bit more exciting. It will definitely be a bit of a staple I think! May I just say, I'm so impressed with Choies so far! Also, what do you all think of the new photo location? Shifted to a new patch of the garden haha, not quite a Rumi Neely-standard backdrop but maybe one day..
