deja entendu









dress: topshop
jacket: primark
necklace: regal rose*
bracelets: black tied* & topshop
socks: prirmark
shoes: swedish hasbeen @ sarenza*
nails: essie & NYC (see this post)

Please excuse my sorry excuse for a skin tone at the moment. I've given up the fake tan for a bit so Im ghostly pale (for me anyway!) I'm quite olive toned anyway so it's not as bad as I seem to think it is! The weather is absolutely lush today, like I said it would be! I think we are popping out for a few drinks in Clapham to make the most of the lovely weather!

I've always been a fan of the socks and sandals look, but its something I've never actually worn. I saw Kristabel do a socks and Swedish Hasbeens look yesterday and I really wanted to try it out. I actually really like it for some reason. I don't know why, I think with the outfit it sort of works in a London Hipster/Off Duty Model sort of way.

  35. I love pale skin! I think it's so pretty, so embrace it (:
    London hipster/model off duty.. i think that describes your look perfectly. I don't think I'd look good in those shoes, but you definitely make them work.

  40. Your ankles look cute! I think mine would probably look stubby.

  41. I too have always like the idea of socks and sandals. I love wearing cute frilly socks with sandals, makes me feel like a two year old that has been dressed by my mother! I am so glad that the weather had brightened up a bit, but to be honest I will be sad not wearing cute chunky cardigans as I am an Autumn/Winter person myself.

  42. Glad you're a fan of the clogs and sandals! I rocked this look again today but my feet kill now, feel as if I've been walking on wooden blocks! Love the effect they add to an outfit though, when it looks too polished.

  43. I think your skin looks great natural, it's really refreshing and suits you! I've never been a fan of fake tan, I'm so scared it'll ruin my bed sheets or clothes! Cute look ;)
