A Day in Spring

Hia everyone, got a chance to take a good few photographs these past few sunny days so i thought i would share :D. It's been nice to have a more laid-back day, as I've been super busy with work recently (essays, art exam work etc).

 I also got a chance to take the outfit photographs i was hoping to, when i went out for a walk today.

This hat has been my best friend for the past few months since i bought it in H&M, and seeing as it wasn't much more than about £3-something, I'd say it was darn good value for money. This blouse is also a favourite of mine, i got it at Clothes Show in Birmingham back in November, which was probably one of the best places I've ever been for handmade/one-off/vintage shopping. The wedges are from new look ( s/s of last year), and although i did mention it in my last post, my floral top is from Topshop and my skirt is from Zara. I've really liked Zara's spring/summer clothing so far, this skirt is so light it hardly feels like you're wearing it. I hope i can find a few more pastel pieces to pair with it soon, something mint i hope..

 and now for a few more photographs from today..

Well it hasn’t been too long since my last post, but I’ve most certainly been busy with my camera. At last I’ve managed to wave a heartfelt goodbye to the rich, autumn/winter tones, and began immersing myself in pastel shades galore. Whether it’s in nature, clothes, food..  The little girl in me just can’t help falling for minty greens, and candyfloss pinks (I’m sure my leopard print clad counterpart would disapprove). At the moment there is just something interesting to me about faded, mild colours. Like life permanently captured on Polaroid film. At the moment I imagine myself wearing lace, chiffon and pearls. Sitting in a room full of flowers, reading a good old dog-eared book.  

 I love my mother's vintage cake stand, maybe I'll make some homemade goodies to decorate it someday. (if i ever get a spare five minutes).

                                              In other news. i did a bit of shopping recently.
                                                      Here's what i got.

                                           I can't wait to see how these nail wraps turn out!
 As i was waiting to pay in topshop seen "Meadham Krichhoff" and that was it.. their tactic of placing random, cool things near the till obviously works.. well on magpies like me it does...
                                          I've never used them before so we shal see...

                  and last but not least, this pair of rings from H&M.
