red jumper, red lips

I haven't worn my cashmere jumper in a while, and after seeing the lightweight crew necks so similar everywhere on streetstyle blogs from fashion week, I decided it was time to give it a go. I love this jumper, it's so soft and even in my favourite colour, but it had elbow patches. Big, dark brown, suede ones. So I unpicked them. Hindsight is a bit mixed at the moment because I love my jumper even more now, but I've effectively ruined its cashmere goodness with tonnes of tiny holes around the elbows. Just as well it's still coat weather so no one could see, eh?

current wishlist

current wishlist; satin bohemian print headband, black faux leather closed toe flatforms, embroidered floral top with bell sleeves, pink wide leg cropped trousers, draped turquoise stone silver choker, bohemian print folk dress, black and white striped shirt dress and white, red and navy striped skater dress

headband forever 21 / flatforms ASOS / embroidered top miss selfridge / trousers topshop boutique / choker ASOS / shirt dress mango / boho dress forever 21 / nautical dress topshop

Just a few things I've had my eye on lately - I spotted this forever 21 dress whilst browsing the website merely minutes after buying a similar version from zara. But they're both so pretty and now this one seems to be sold out online, I have to find it in store! Also, how cute would these flatforms and these topshop boutique wide leg pants look together? Maybe with a stripey top and a pair of black shades. Ah, fantasy wardrobe. 

What are you loving lately?

fedora, monk shoes and a good old A-line

Only recently have I realised my true love for A-line skirts. I used to be all about those flippy, full skater skirts or even hippy skirts way back when (who didn't love those?) and admittedly I went through a HUGE bodycon phase during sixth form. But you really can't beat a good old A-line skirt. For this look I wanted something simple for working and running errands, so went with the preppy vibe and layered this vibrant jumper on top of an old burgundy shirt. Although this felt a little too 2010 for my liking, so I threw on my beloved primark monk shoes and fedora, which made me a feel a little better I have to admit.
