Such a wondrous summer we have had, I joke, personally I think this summer was kind of awful apart from a few days of sun here and there. That is why I am very much looking forward to the colder weather and with that, the super cute fluffy coats and cardigans and other such bulky warm items that go along with it! This wishlist contains all of my autumn wishes, not that it really is autumn until September the 23rd but as the weather doesn't exactly look promising I suggest we all start on the autumn bandwagon immediately!
DRESS: MOTEL ROCKS
SOCKS: HAPPY SOCKS
I have wanted this dress for a very long time, I love the whole zip-up tshirt-collar thing its got going on as it makes it feel less dress-like. Also I thought it would be the perfect excuse to wear my Pride socks from Happy Socks which I love but don't wear too often as its quite rare that I wear anything non-pink/purple/blue!
YELLOW TARTAN DRESS: *POPRAGEOUS
JACKET: *URBAN OUTFITTERS
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD TARTAN PURSE: *VERY EXCLUSIVE
CROP TOP: BOOHOO
LACE UP SANDALS: *PUBLIC DESIRE
An outfit which contains no pink? Much shock!! I actually really love the colour yellow even though its not something I wear too often. I find it clashes weirdly with the pinky-purple tones of my hair and especially when paired with red, it just doesn't go, but sometimes I make an exception. A few months ago I got my first Vivienne Westwood purse from Very Exclusive eeee!!! I was so excited for it to arrive and when it finally did I immediately put all of my purse related things into it and popped it in my bag and completely forgot to feature it in an outfit. Well I didn't exactly forget, every time I got it out to pay for something I was like "darn I really need to photograph this purse" but I didn't want to let it stray from the safety of my bag into a garment bag. Anyway, its now up on my blog, and its so pretty! I decided to plan my entire outfit around the purse and go a bit over the top with the tartan, because that is very quintessentially Vivienne in my opinion. I paired the purse with my tartan dress and socks, and also even the inside of my Harrington jacket is tartan and it just so happened that it matched my dress, how convenient!
DENIM JACKET: TOPSHOP
CROP TOP: MISSY EMPIRE
TENNIS SKIRT: ROMWE
PURPLE HOLOGRAPHIC BAG: *8 CUBES OF SUGAR
FISHNET TIGHTS: *WE LOVE COLORS
A quick outfit of what I wore today when I popped to the shops, this is pretty much another version of my help-I-only-have-15-minutes-to-get-ready-so-I-may-as-well-throw-my-uniform-on-outfit. I also always end up doing my makeup in the car, the only problem in this being I chose a different bag to the one I did previously and left my mascara behind, noo!! I need like 10 of everything so it doesn't matter if I leave something behind as I'll probably have a spare. Although if I did that, I'd probably end up putting them all in the same bag and having exactly the same problem as I did today haha, is anyone else like this? Hope its not just me!!
BOMBER JACKET: *MISSY EMPIRE
I LIKE PLANTS BETTER THAN PEOPLE CROP TOP: *SUSI APPAREL
MOM JEANS: TOPSHOP
VINTAGE BELT: WEARECOW
VINTAGE PLATFORM BOOTS: CHARITY SHOP similar @ PUBLIC DESIRE
NET SOCKS: ASOS
How cute is this plant crop top, I have acquired a small group of succulents over the past year and I feel this top represents that very well, also its very true that sometimes plants are better than people *thumbs up*. I've also invested in yet another pair of mom jeans, these ones are a slightly different colour and fit to the other pairs that I have which are quite baggy, these however I think are a cross between mom jeans and cigarette pants. In the photos I've rolled the cuff up but when its rolled down they look quite fitted at the ankle which I'm enjoying, they'd look really cute with flats, not that I really have many flat-flats.... like yknow... not with a platform, shock horror, shoes without platforms?? Never did I see such things.
