I love finding an old favourite clothing piece and finding out you still love it as much as when you first bought it. Despite having been paid at work, I'm still ever as reluctant to part ways with my money for new clothes! Am sure this will change on Thursday when I accompany the sister and Mama on a shopping trip though, don't you worry your pretty little selves.

(Burnout top, Urban Outfitters;
Heart print playsuit, Topshop;
Loafers, Primark;
Rings, Topshop and Miss Selfridge;
Golden Snitch necklace, Wallpaper Rose;
Mini satchel, Luella.)

Before I generously accidentally gave my sister custody of this top and playsuit, this was my default, go-to outfit when all else failed, I like that the colour palette of the outfit is so muted and neutral, it gives you so much scope to accessorise with pops of colour if you so wish. There's also a new addition to my outfit posts, if you hadn't noticed. I'm hoping it'll inspire me to use more colours in my outfits! Another thing I love about this outfit is its' loose fit, perfect for summer BBQs so you can fit in an extra few bites of food, or to lounge around in as well as wear 'out and about'. Added a sprinkle of brass toned jewellery to look authentic and vintage-inspired with my satchel bag too.

I'm currently spending all of my free time editing the final photos for my Fashion and Styling portfolio. If you remember, I was extremely stressed about the shoot but I ended up taking over 1000 photos on it! Big thanks to my lovely friend and model, Kerry (: So now I have the task of meticulously going through the photos, making contact sheets, selecting 5 photos to be included in my final fashion story and Photoshopping them for use in the final piece. My eyes are absolutely dying!

Just wanted to mention my new recommended blog this week! You can visit Alana by clicking in the sidebar, I absolutely love her blog and she Tweets some absolute gems too, so ya know, I'm sure it would make her day if you had a read. I also read a brilliant post by Tabitha this morning and agreed with every word she said about the issue of copycats in the blogosphere. I know it's something that is always happening, and an issue many of us have raised, but she makes some great points in her post!

I will see you all tomorrow for another Ways to Wear installment as requested by you guys! Love and hugs ♥
