SANDALS // DRESS // DRESS // RING // FEDORA // SWEATER // SLIDERS // CASE

I haven't done a wishlist in a while, so I thought I'd change it up a little and show you all what I've been lusting after recently.  I didn't try to make a colour scheme or anything, it just seems I'm feeling very monochrome at the moment!  What's on your wishlists?

COSMIC SEQUINS

JACKET* // BOOHOO
DRESS* // POPPY LUX
SOCKS // TOPSHOP
BOOTS* // ARK CLOTHING
RINGS* // ROGUE + WOLF

I always have the same problem when going out - I'm wearing a pretty outfit but I have to throw on a chunky jacket or coat that ruins it, which is why this sequin number is perfect!  I love how it looks with the galaxy print of the dress, and always, I had to finish off the outfit with some chunky boots.  These ones are from Ark and I talked about them a little in my latest haul video if you'd like to hear more about them.  I also think my jewellery deserves a special mention - my rings are from Rogue + Wolf and they are by far my favourite jewellery shop ever.  I discovered them at Pure London and their designs are so unique, I literally stood at the stall for 10 minutes gushing over all the designs, so I'm delighted to finally have some of my own!  I can't wait to show you the rest of my pieces so keep an eye out for future appearances!

NEW IN // Catseye London

PHONE CASE* // £11
WASHBAG* // £15

Yes I have given in and tried out the generic blogger 'aerial clutter photo' but I do love how they look, and don't think it turned out too badly!  I haven't done a post like this in a while so I thought I'd change it up a little after receiving these two adorable pieces!  Catseye London is a kooky little company that create lifestyle accessories with fun prints - you may recognise some of their designs from walking round the likes of Urban Outfitters or Selfridges.

Why have a boring old sensible washbag, when you can have a pretty kitty peeping at you while you wash your face?  I picked out the silver kitty one but there are tons of other designs (including pugs!) and it's top quality for the low price.  You may not be able to tell from the photos but it's shiny, therefore meaning it's waterproof and wipe clean - no more soggy washbags, huzzah!  It also has two inside pockets for keeping things like toothbrushes and cotton pads organised and out of the clutter, perfect for me as I'm a bit of a germ freak.

As for the case, the design is gorgeous, wish I could do a 360 angle view because the print carries on over the sides of the case and there's a pretty electric pink colour inside which you can just see peeking out.  It feels really nice in your hands (sounds weird, but it's very satisfying to hold) and definitely something to spice up a mirror selfie!

Anyway, I can't believe I've just written two paragraphs gushing over a washbag and a phone case, but seriously - just go check out Catseye London to take a look for yourself rather than taking my word for it.  If you've actually read this far - let me know if you liked this post and if you'd want to see more like this, thought it would be fun to try something new!

DRESS* // TK MAXX
SHOES* // IRON FIST
LIPS* // MAC BOYFRIEND STEALER

This dress could not have come into my life at a better time, as I watched The Great Gatsby not so long ago and absolutely fell in love with the wardrobe.  Although I'm no competition to the likes of Miss Daisy, this beaded number is still absolutely gorgeous.  I thought I'd add a modern touch with some clean black courts, and because longer dresses don't flatter me too well, I added a belt to hoick it up a little, although it fell a little bit for these photos unfortunately, so I don't have much waist definition!  TK Maxx are on point at the moment, whether you're looking for a glam, going out dress like this or something pretty for spring, they have tons of gorgeous dresses online at the mo' - my wishlist is endless!

Sunday Summary Week 152

1/ Freddie loves bubbles  2/ Pretty new things (rucksack, glasses, purse, camera, necklace)
3/ OOTD (glasses, coat, top, skirt, bag)  4/ Saw Brand New on saturday!

So last night I saw one of my all time favourite bands, Brand New.  I was absolutely ecstatic to see them as they pulled out of Reading Festival last year, and honestly I can't write out this post without almost exactly copying Lily's review.  Something didn't feel right after the gig and I was so disappointed they didn't play one of my favourite songs, Jude Law & a Semester abroad - I know they don't like that album but it would have been great for their fans if they'd have played it.  So after going home a little sad, reading Lily's post the next day literally put all my feelings into words - just felt so disconnected, and what's more I paid double the face value as I bought through a reseller!  I had anticipated the gig so much so that'll be a factor, but my boyfriend thought it was awesome, so maybe I'm just being picky!

As promised, here is look number one from my Urban Outfitters haul & lookbook video that I posted last week!  I'm very new to the whole wearing jeans thing, so as you can imagine, wearing mom jeans was a little out of my comfort zone - but I saw these on the UO website and they looked amazing on the model, so I just had to have them!  I'm very torn as to whether to keep them or not as I'm not sure if they suit me, so please leave your honest opinions below!

RINGS // RACHEL SUDLOW, RINGS & TINGS, NATIVE FEATHERS, RINGS & TINGS, MARKET, VINTAGE


As you may be able to tell from the stamp on my hand, these photos were taken the morning after a night out - hence the sunglasses!  I actually took these while I was in Bournemouth at a little church, but unfortunately couldn't get any of the churchy bits in - so instead have a skanky brick wall.  The print on this tee is perfect for adding a splash of colour to an all black outfit, and it's super comfy so perfect for a hangover!  I feel as if I've been posting waaay too many hungover outfit posts recently; it's been a hectic few weeks but I now have tonsillitis so no drinking, let alone moving from my bed, for the next little while!
