little hell








top: H&M
skirt: H&M
jacket: river island
cardigan: new look
shoes: topshop
socks: primark
belt: primark
bracelets: claires accessories* & turkish market stall
lips: topshop pillow talk (review here)

Dodgy lighting today, Not sure what was going on as I took it at the same time I usually do! Routine! Probably a bit warm for this outfit today if Im being honest. So I just wore the skirt and the boob tube for most of the day! I can't get my head around the changing weather at the moment so Im not making any rash decisions and bringing my summer clothes out again! I was recently send a whopping massive package of Claire's Accessories jewellery and included were some of these cross and skull bracelets which I absolutely love! I actually saw them in store a few weeks (yah I went into Claire's Accessories at the age of 22!) ago and they were only around £4-£5 which is a bargain as Im sure the one I got from Topshop which exactly the same was about £8! The nails and polish Im wearing are also from Claires, but I couldn't get any good snaps of them but I'll try again tomorrow!

Last night I joined Pinterest, I don't really understand it fully yet but Im sort of trying to get my head around it! I hear Pinterest is a pretty big deal and thought it was about time I got around to checking it out! If you have one please link me in the comments so I can check it out and follow etc! It looks visually exciting but hard to get! You can follow me here! Im going to be posting all the photos from my blog posts as well as things like wish lists etc!

  2. Love the khaki mixed with leather, laid-back edgy mixed with the feminine skirt. I don't understand Pinterest either - yet everyone seems to rave about it! x

  5. Lovely outfit as usual, I really like those bracelets but I always feel that high street prices are a bit of a rip-off when I can make them on the cheap, but I suppose I never really buy jewellery any more!

  16. You look so so lovely but I can imagine you were a bit warm, this weather is so hard to fathom at the moment, I never know what to wear! Funnily enough I went into Claire's the other day after not having been in for years and they have some really nice glitter polishes kind of like the Models Own and American Apparel ones!
