that girl possessed






tunic: via ebay (but you can buy it on this website)
leggings/treggings/whatever: new look
jacket: H&M
earrings: primark
hat: new look
nails: models own pink plush *

Its been so dull and glum today, I didnt really want to get out of my jimjams! However I was dragged out of my cave and went shopping with my Mum today instead of our usual Sunday jaunt as we have a family meal tomorrow. Just threw on a tunic and some jeggings/treggings/leggings and my trusty H&M single breasted coat. Its one of my favourite items I have in my wardrobe and I wear it most days. I cant believe it was one of those items that almost got away!

Love, Hearts and Crosses sent me some of their items and including this faux Arty ring, which I absolutely adore. The thing that really put me off getting a real Arty is that I don't wear gold jewellery, I much prefer silver. I think gold can look really tacky at times. However I do think they did make a "real" version of the black and silver, but this will do for me!

  11. Such a darling outfit for being on the whim! And the ring is a great representation. I share the same feeling about gold jewelry- you look fantastic in silver!

  14. Absolutely love this! The great thing about your style is that you make everything look expensive, when really they are very accessible to the general public! Your leopard print tunic looks really sophisticated :) specially with that gorgeous blazer! I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect high-street blazer, but knowing my luck, you probably bought it ages ago! Anyway, your blog is really great to read, thank you for sharing!

  25. You look gorgeous! Ahh I've been in search for a similar blazer in H&M here in the US but no luck! They always never have my size! And how's the quality of the dress from the wholesale? I've been meaning to get something from there but it looks a bit sketchy!

  35. I love that you and your mum have regular sunday shopping trips. She seems like she has a great sense of humour, referring to the velour tracksuit she got you :') the arty ring is nice, I prefer gold though, mainly because I think it looks better on my skin? If that even makes sense. I love the dress, leopard print is beatiful xxx

  38. Such a lovely outfit! I love leopard print! However I saw a woman wearing a leopard print maxi, bag and shoes the other day, not a good look at all!! xxx

  39. Love this outfit! That ring is a really good look-a-like. I'm like you, and rarely wear gold because I think it can look tacky too, so will definitely be getting this version! x

  43. I'm not a fan of animal print, but you pull if off very well! :)

    And I agree about gold looking tacky a lot of times! That's why I don't like the trend of gold watches, meh. :(
