Those ephemeral fireworks I watched with you.


Long cardigan - H&M
Bow brooch - Topshop
Tights - Topshop
Shoes - River Island
Hat - fancy dress shop
Knuckle ring - Accessorize

This is an outfit I wore last week to run some errands. It's the return of my cardigan-as-a-dress, whoo. The only problem is the deep V-neck so I had to pin the top together with a brooch. I would have cinched the cardigan with a belt as well, but it looked too busy with the bow, buttons and pockets. A girl in Vivienne Westwood complimented my boater, but I don't know if she was just trying to get me to buy something.

I didn't like these heart tights much before (I would have preferred a more scattered heart pattern) but they actually make my legs look so long and slender! I forgive them. Also displaying my newest jewellery acquisition. It's a two-finger knuckle ring with "love" across the front. I originally wore it 'upright' as in the bottom photo, but my brother said I should wear it 'upside down' so when I do DAPS, it would be the right way around. What do you think?



Do you ever go into a store intending to return something you've bought and end up buying something else (more expensive) instead?

oh yes that's me, except I don't return things - I just go back and buy another thing anyway! Love that boater! xx

I'm definitely guilty of returning purchases to only end up leaving the store with more stuff and less cash in my wallet. ;P

I adore your outfit!! It's so stinkin' cute.. from the ballet flats, to the heart tights, the Love ring, and the icing on the cake the bow pin! LOVE IT!

Hope you're having a great day hun.

xx Love & Aloha
