To keep you standing there with flowers

(Dress: ASOS Salon, Shoes: Marni x H&M)

I swear I had not been drinking before these were taken, I was just super happy. Most of my summer wardrobe choice revolve around "what would look good for frolicking around in a field in?". Since buying this dress... two years ago I haven't had much opportunity to wear it so after eying up this patch of rape seed every day on my way to work I finally bullied someone into taking the pictures. Now all the rape seed has gone and I am stuck with barley fields for summer frolicking. 

With love,

The thoughts you once gave me

(Raspberry skirt: H&M Trend, Cross stitches top: Topshop, Floral jacket: ASOS, Purse: H&M Trend, Necklace: Miss Selfridge, Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens) #teenvogue

Two observations from this post, one I have an inability to straighten the back of my hair, oh just face it, the entirety of my hair and two, my knees look like old Benjamin Button. The young Benjamin Button? Whatever, the wrinkly one. Maybe we should move on to how much this skirt looks like a raspberry? Logical to then wear it to berry pick, you know what isn't logical, taking a white bag berry picking. Bad idea.

Favourite Things

1. A real BB cream. My sister bought this for me from Korea, be careful if you order from Korea as a lot of the creams contain bleach which isn't great for skin. BB cream was originally used for people post surgery as such the Korean brands are actually better than our British replicas which are more often than not just tinted moisturizer. I really like using this product, it's very light, not sticky or claggy. It also has a decent SPF to not bother with sun cream on a general day to day basis. 

2. Just popped into Miss Selfridge after a tip off from a friend to look at their jewellery and came out with this, added bonus? It was a measly £5. It is actually pretty fancy, lots of detail and thought obviously went into it. And I am a sucker for any jewellery that looks a bit Egyptian.

Iphone case: I was starting to feel a little foolish going to a grown up job with a phone that only had a variety of animal cases to chose from- all with ears might I add. So when I saw this cutie-patootie come online on ASOS, it ended up in my bag. It has the queens guards on it. Pretty cute. Very British. I can only find the ipad case now, see it there, but Beta have other sweet ones online.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

DIY Miu Miu Cady Shorts

One day I was dream shopping on Net-a-porter and came across these babies, cute! But let's be honest, £1,250 for shorts, no matter how many beads on might not be worth it. I'd rather buy a fancy bald sphinx cat. So yeah, DIY time.

You'll need:

1 pair of plain shorts, mint in colour if you are into copying the Miu Miu ones completely like me
Lots of beads, seriously, a lot.
Hand needles

I got my shorts from Forever21, they were a cheap £12, is everything in Forever21 £12? Anyway, they were the perfect colour and the perfect price if I messed them up.

My beads were a hobby craft special. I think they were £4 for the large size tub and the beads are all randomly mixed so I could pick ones that were different colours and tones, I put in a few golds and browns to make the colours a bit deeper.

Now, I am sure that I don't need to offer instructions on to hand sew beads onto something but I shall leave you with this gem. Be careful with how many bead you sew on the insides of the legs. I went down to just one bead so it wouldn't look weird like it would have if I left it bare, but when wearing these shorts they still congregate in a rather alarming way.

Favourite Things

1. Sandal Weather. Cracking out the gold Swedish Hasbeens for a day Natural Trust garden tours. Sincerely, these shoes are the comfiest things in existence, the leather is so soft it is like not even wearing shoes. They also make your feet look small which is a blessing for my less than feminine giant, skinny feet. These are all very positive points without even considering the fact they are gold.

2. My sisters hair. Well, she has had purple hair for maybe a year now but it looked very pretty today and with a purple field full of foxgloves I kind of had to take a picture of it. She is ridiculously good at predicting, whether accidentally or intentionally, things that will become a new trend before they actually become one.

3. My mum's super cute outfit for our day out! She looks amazing in a dress and hopefully acknowledging how great she looks will mean she will wear them more. You look great Mama.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend full of sun and family time!

The worried people shaking the whole house

( Draped back jumper: ASOS, Striped skirt: Zara, Leather handbag: Zara, Fur tail: Etsy, Necklace: ASOS and Shoes: Miu Miu) #teenvogue

The "worried people" should be exchanged for the wind! Damn, it was windy but so sunny and otherwise perfect for photo-taking. The weather hates me. The location change to a likely teenage drug den was due to the wind.

Bought this Zara skirt as I enjoyed the two different colour stripes- an unusual pairing but a pleasant one. The clue should have been that it was unusual and that it would not go with anything, cue my wardrobe philosophy: Don't know what to wear it with? Wear a grey t-shirt or jumper. Unimaginative but effective!

Favourite Things

 My all time favourite perfume. I was a lucky girl my boyfriend bought me this which was rather charming as I am too cheap to buy this most of the time.. Reason being, I am a serial-sprayer, it's like an OCD for smell. So excited to have this perfume back in my life, when I could smell this on other ladies I would be very jealous. I am sure everyone has smelt this though and knows how delightful it is!

Leather boots: Topshop Premium. Had my eyes on these for a while, when they dropped down in sale I was there and ready. I was originally disappointed when I got them as I thought the leather was a black and ox-blood mix, it is just black, but I guess that makes them more versatile! I didn't have any boots for winter so these will be waiting for me. She says while it is 20 degrees outside.

Boyfriend got me peonies. I guess the lurking next to the flower stands paid off. He found these in his garden and proudly presented them with other wild flowers. Romantic. I went with him to a boot sale on Sunday- got a whole load of crap, including but not exclusive to: 3 picture frames, 3 vases, a wooden box, a sweetie box, a table and a rocking chair. Now we have to learn how to reupholster and maybe buy a house sharpish.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend in the summer sun!

Blinded by your own reflection

 (Dress: H&M (past seasons), Leather harness: Topshop, Shoes: DIY, Ankle cuffs: eBay, Necklace: Forever 21, Bracelets: Misc/ Marc by Marc Jacobs, Madewell, DIY) #teenvogue

I love a harness, hand harness, body harness and even a leg one, so I guess it was only a natural progression to end up here with a leather one. I had my eye on one on ASOS but it sold out in my size, so looked on eBay. Worst idea ever. If you do search "Leather harness" in eBay, may I suggest private browsing. Woah. Anyway, this one in Topshop popped up and I like it a lot, the nude makes it a lot less harsh and even the shape is really flattering! If you can get your hands on a leather harness, maybe even a bondage one, try it with dresses, I really enjoyed it. Also loving it over coats, pulls in the waist a bit!
