every drop that falls




top: primark
peter pan collar: topshop (dress worn here)
skirt: H&M
leggings: american apparel
rings: asos, H&M and jwlry

Not wearing orange or pink today! Well I am slyly but ssh ;) Haha! Ive been wanting to incorporate more peter pan collars into some of my outfits, seriously can you have enough peter pan collars? However I cannot justify buying a proper collar when the same look can be done by just popping a top over a dress/top with on already attached! After seeing someone do it, I think it was Kelly with a New Look Shirt  (I actually wore the shirt in question here) under a jumper, I decided to replicate. I'm actually wearing this orange polka dot dress from Topshop, cleverly hidden with a Primani basic top!

I couldn't sleep last night, I stayed up most of the night playing on Angry Birds and reading the new Chris Jehrico book on my Kindle. The fact that the clocks have changed, plus all the rest I got when I was ill has made my body clock absolutely out of wack! Its so crazy! Managed to get up relatively early (I lie, it was 10am!) in the hope I'll sleep tonight! Didn't do much today really, just went to uni, ate a chimichanga and came home. I and now chillaxing and packing more jewellery orders! I'm back at work tomorrow! Back to being busy all the time!

  37. Oh and I was gonna ask...how exactly do you do it that you don´t look bulky at all while layering? I always feel super huge when I wear stuff over over stuff:(

    ReplyDelete
  38. chimichanga are my fave - mmm now im hungry!
    you pull off the layering well, i would feel way too puffy with all thoes layers. love the peter pan collar look, have not seen much of them in Aus yet (annoying!) thanks for the link on new look they have some cute tops.

  48. I know you hate questions like this/or don't like to really discuss makeup but your face looks truly amazing in these photos.
    I'd love to know what makeup products you are wearing esp what foundation, blush and lip product. If you'd like to share I'd love to know! :)

    Thanks

    Ahaha, I've read that book! Wrestling was my life when I was younger and I still watch sneaky matches now. Even though I know it's fake, I get sooo sucked in.

  66. I feel exactly the same about buying a peter pan collar, the only ones I've seen were in Grazia for about £70! Your little improvisation worked well though :)
