Awol apologies...

 Dress & Necklace: H&M and Jacket: Muubaa

 Dress & Necklace: H&M and Jacket: Vintage

Bralet & Skirt: H&M, Bag: Vintage, Shoes: Primark from eBay and Bracelet: Vintage

Helloooo! Sorry for being absent for the longest stretch ever - so bad and neglectful. I really don't have a suitable excuse it's just I'm free from uni and many days have been spent either hungover or lying in the park and so I haven't had many post worthy outfits...anyways, let's move on from excuses! Here is what i've been wearing for the last few days - can you tell I've been on a shopping spree to H&M?! A little neon, mirror print and some cream leather for good measure! What do you think of my purchases?

I love Shinesun!

Dress: Fearne Cotton for Very from eBay, Shoes: Topshop from eBay, Satchel: ASOS and Belt: Vintage. 

It is suuuucccchhhh nice weather. This outfit is a tad conservative as I had to go to a hospital appointment (nothing serious!)..but I got to wear these 'new' shoes from topshop, I love them! Sorry the pics are a little useless - the satchel's not really looking it's best - but I have my final exam ever in 3 hours, so a little short of time. But now I will be leaving the house to go places other than the library so there should be some more exciting outfits! Hope everyone is able to lap up the rays a little bit.

Yes, I did buy another pair of floral trousers...

Trousers: Motel Rocks from eBay, Top: Primark, Belt: H&M or Primark?!, Bag: Charity Shop, Cuff earring: eBay and Lipgloss: Revlon Color Burst in Fire. 

This is what I'm wearing today, I saw these high waisted floral trousers in Look Magazine but they were already sold out - but good old eBay provided a solution - yay! eBay did me another great service by getting me this stud cuff earring which i looooveeee. And the sun is out and eventhough I am inside revising - the sun still makes me happy. I hope it's sunny on friday after I finish my final exam at 7pm on thursday. Happy!

Worth it?

I realllllly LOVE this dress from ASOS, such a nice contrast between the floral and the aztec inspired embroidery. But it's £65 and I'm not sure if I can justify it, what do you think? I would get a lot of wear out of it....

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey...

Jacket: Muubaa, Skirt: Vintage from eBay, T-shirt: H&M and belt: Primark (also wearing the trusty creepers!). 

So 'all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey...', you know, brown hair and eyes, grey top, monochrome is kind of shades of grey - yeh, yeh? Or perhaps I have spent too long in the library. But a good mark for effort, right? I even matched my eyeshadow! Anyhow, here is todays outfit, I really love midi hemlines and cropped tees - likely to be a summer outfit staple. Anyway, must get back too it, hope you have enjoyed the weekend in the sun.

70's floral dress

Dress: eBay, Belt: Primark & Jacket: Muubaa

This is what I wore today - sorry for the not great pics, I was running late for volunteering and when I got home the light was gone so couldn't take more pics! I randomly found this dress on a procrastinatory eBay trawl a few weeks ago - floral, midi and pleated for a fiver? Yes please. I can't wait to wear it through the summer. So how about it sun, it's approaching June - fancy coming out an giving us a nice sun-kissed glow? Come on, you know you want to!

Oh I want one or both of these top skirt combos from River Islands S/S 12 collection. I have seen them in every magazine under the sun but have not been able to get my greedy little mitts on them! Has anyone else managed? Have they not been released yet?! I have actually just sent an email to River Island because I want to know so much! I'll let you know what they say...also, black or white?

The floral obsession continues...

Jacket: Muubaa, Shirt: Zara from eBay and Shorts: Vintage

Ahhhh Zara shirt I love you. I saw this shirt in Zara's look book right at the beginning of last season but somehow managed to miss it in store and online, after trawling eBay for ages, and all the shirts being sold for around £80 I finally found this one a few months ago for the bargain price of £18 = very happy Kate! It also got rid of the major green eyed monster I was trying to contain after seeing other bloggers in possession of the shirt. Do you like it?I Paired it with my trusty biker jacket and cut offs today.

Should I post this?

Jacket: Vintage from eBay, Shirt: Warehouse, Jeans: H&M, Shoes: eBay & Backpack: Urban Outfitters. 

I suppose it's the age old question for all bloggers - is this outfit worth posting? For example today my outfit is pretty similar to I was wondering whether I should post it. It's jeans and creepers again. But I decided I would because for me it's just about sharing what I wear everyday unless I am too rushed to take pictures, or my outfit isn't photo worthy (this happens to us all! - I find a surprising amount). Some bloggers have such amazing style and photographs that I suppose an outfit has to be really wonderful and exciting to be worth a place on their blogs...I am under no illusion that my blog is not like that! But hopefully, I am not boring you?!

Library Casual

Jacket: Vintage, T-shirt: I made it, Jeans: H&M, Bag: Charity Shop, Socks: H&M and Creepers: eBay.

Today is another library day and I've gone for a pretty comfy casual look, mostly cos I wanted to wear these new brogue-esque creepers - love them! I have a mixed relationship with these high waisted jeans, essentially I love them from the front, but feel like my bum looks rather large from the back...but I can't see that most of the time! Hope some of you are getting to enjoy the sun today.

I'm blue for you..

 Blue eyeshadow - can you see it?

Skirt: eBay, Jacket: Muubaa, and T-shirt: Mary Katrantzou for Topshop

So I have finally altered this skirt - it was a very strange ankle swinger kind of length! I was really looking forward to wearing it with this t-shirt. I know the skirt is going to be a firm favourite, you'll be seeing more of it, I guarantee..

I wish the sky was the same colour as my shirt...

Shirt: Charity Shop, Jeans: River Island, Jacket: Muubaa, Hat: Urban Outfitters, Necklace: Topshop

Oh how I wish the sky was a lovely burnt orange, the sun setting, warm and beautiful - but sadly not it is full of clouds! Well maybe that is a good thing as I have to spend all day in the library? Anyway, this is what I wore today - I know not that exciting, it's just that the combination of getting up really early and the weather being useless means all the things I want to wear just don't look right with tights..but I promise to be more exciting soon. Forgive me?
