a little spree..

Monday, 11 June 2012









| Flatform Sandals | Bertie (in John Lewis) | were £75 now £38 |
| Maxi skirt | H&M | £19.99 |
| Black Camisole | H&M | £7.99 |

I know this is a pretty poor post, but i had an urge to blog!..

I really wanted to show these new items as an outfit post (but England being England it's been pouring down bucket loads of water continuously today) so i have few hopes for nice weather to photograph in tomorrow either.. maybe within the next couple of days?

As I'm on study leave, officially starting today, woo! 
At the moment i have alot of spare time on my hands..
And what else to do today when the weathers horrid and your friends are in school taking exams? Shop!

I managed to persuade my Dad into treating me to the shoes above. After stating they were a 'summer essential', he caved in, and bought these little beauties, mwahaha! But in all fairness my other brown sandals are around two years old now and are showing there age, it was time for a replacement!

The maxi skirt i purchased in H&M. I never shop in there much because the clothing always comes up a little too big for me, but with this elasticated waist and with the help of a belt, it becomes wearable!
 The print when photographed looks slightly crazy, and my mum didn't hold back to show she wasn't a fan.
 I don't normally head for animal print, but for some reason, when on, it looks different, so different my mum changed her mind into liking it too!

I may look like some crazy cat lady with a dozen feline friends at my legs, but hey! 
"I'll (try and) work this thaaang"

And last but not least, just a silky little camisole as i lack in 'basics' and it  just so happens it pairs lovely with the skirt!
