current favourites (well, a few)



body: h&m, bangles: anna lou of london*, choker: depop (similar on ebay!), ysl kiss and blush in #2* and esteƩ lauder bronze goddess perfume

Just a few favourites of mine recently, as I've not got any outfits to go up for a week or so! I had also meant to put my Tangle Teezer in too, so pretend that's in here.
I've stuck to things I've been reaching for constantly, like the YSL Kiss and Blush and Bronze Goddess. I'm dreadful with lip make up, and remembering to put perfume on but both of these have been regulars in my handbag lately. The perfume smells amazing, it's literally a holiday in a bottle so it's doing my holiday blues some good and the Kiss & Blush is just so subtle but feels so lovely on, I think I've worn it every day for at least a month. I'm definitely going to pick up a different colour with my Boots points.
I've also been wearing these Anna Lou of London cuffs quite a bit, they're so fun and the colours give my usual monochrome outfits a little pop, I love the kitsch flamingoes too. And lastly the H&M body, meeeeooow. It's not the sexiest, and I feel a little like I'm wearing a swimming costume when I have it on but the print and shape sold me. I saw it out in Madrid and regretted not buying it instantly, so when I found it cheaper on Oxford Street I nearly did a backflip. Olivia and I have it matching, cute.

Anyway, by the time this goes live I will be interning with Oh My Love, so my posts are going to be a bit sporadic as I have a long old journey there and back every day leaving me with no spare time (I also work weekends...) and then I move house and re-start uni! Send help, or at least bare with me until I'm settled into my new house! Thanks a billion.

madrid








shorts: missguided*
top: mango
shoes: topshop
bag: missguided*

As I said a couple of posts ago, these shorts are much more wearable as singles for me so while I was in Madrid I paired them with this open back top from Mango. I'm gutted I didn't get a photo of the back as it's really nice, but I'm sure it'll pop up again!
I actually got back from Madrid almost a month ago but am a bit delayed with my posts due to lots of scheduling at the moment!

new home/interior wishlist

home wishlist
cow hide rug: barker and stone//rabbit mug: h&m//pinapple: h&m//glass jar: marks and spencer//g&j cushions: marks and spencer//cacti: ikea//tubereuse candle: diptyque//pug egg cup: urban outfitters//moss knit throw: h&m//silver lamp: ikea//rose gold candle holders: h&m

So, I'm moving to a brand new flat next month and Olivia and I are going interior mad, hence the inspo posts! If you follow me on Pinterest, you'll know I'm really into the typical minimal with hints of colour, texture and pops of green through plants etc. I'm mega excited to do the big shop for it all so I thought I'd share a bit of what I'm probably going to be buying (minus the cow hide 'cos I'm too poor for that, also sorry anti fur folk.) 
I'm thinking to do a little home tour post when we're all settled and decorated, so let me know if you'd fancy that!

clash of the florals with missguided





co-ord: missguided* (top & shorts)
kimono: missguided*
hat: river island
shoes: new look
Missguided are obviously the place to go for florals and co-ords, so it's only natural that putting the two together and making a crazy floral soup was the next thing.
Now, it's not an outfit I'd be wearing together any time soon but that's just because I prefer a more minimal palette, but it can work! I've been wearing them as separates too, as I'm obsessed with this kimono.
What do you reckon, clashing florals or no?

august wishlist

dr marten clarissa sandal//asos stripe top//dannijo necklace//whistles clutch//topshop heels//asos trousers

I've not posted a wishlist in forever, so it seemed only fitting that I did one. After all, there's never a time where I don't want anything!
This one sees my usual monochrome theme, with chunky sandals (from Dr Martens and Topshop) and textures thrown in. I actually think it'd be a perfect outfit (if I had four feet.) I've become a real trouser person of late and these ASOS cropped trousers seem like they'd go with everything and I've got a high neck top from there that would turn it into a great two piece. I love the back of the striped top too, (click through to view on ASOS) and despite not needing another stripy top, I know this'll be mine very soon.
Lastly the perfect Dannijo necklace that has been on my mental wishlist since I was about 15. Such a statement and very fitting with my penchant for large necklaces.
Anything take your fancy?
