I've had a really lovely day with my little sister today. Was supposed to be covering someone at work but she ended up showing up at work so I've had the day off! I popped to town to transfer money over to a friend, who is buying my camera for me next week. I'm so excited to actually have a camera again. (Getting the Nikon D3100 if you are interested!) Also bought a casual three new books, the new issue of ELLE, and Style at Home, it's going to be a good weekend!


(Floral drawstring playsuit, H&M;
Bangle, A birthday present from years ago;
Daisy ring, c/o Bijoux Dolly;
Heart double finger ring, c/o Chloe - Also available in the lucky dip at Temporary Secretary;
Golden Snitch necklace, Wallpaper Rose.)

Simply too lazy to select a proper outfit this morning, I decided to opt for one of my new playsuits, because new purchases always look good for some reason. On the hanger, this playsuit looked sort of awful. It was long and looked like a jumpsuit, and a little sack-like, but for £7.99, I had to go and try it on, and thank God I did! The fit is so nice and slouchy, and there is a little drawstring detail at the front of the chest/neckline. The drawstring allows you to pull the playsuit right up to your neck, or wear it looser - perhaps with a plain bikini top? - for ultimate beach chic. I really liked this: I wear mine so I am decently covered at the front and so that the back is draped and pulled right down.

Jewellery-wise, I had wanted to keep things simple, but I felt a bit bare and naked in all honesty! I lovelove this little daisy ring from Bijoux Dolly, I'm so drawn to daisies unsurprisingly haha. Everything at Bijoux Dolly is a one-of-a-kind recycled item, with a very vintage feel to them, handmade by Katie, who I go to Uni with. The store is so well stocked and the pieces make such nice additions to any outfit in my opinion! Also popped on my Snitch, I'm counting down the days/hours/minutes until July 15th!

I bought three books in town today, the Summer weather is finally here and I'm all set to spend my afternoons in the sun with a good read. I ended up buying 'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro at last, 'The Great Gatsby', which I can't believe I've never read, and 'Summer at Willow Lake' by Susan Wiggs. After reading Bee's blogpost this morning, I really want to dedicate time specifically to reading away from my laptop!

  3. This playsuit looks gorgeous on you, I love how easy they are to throw on for the Summer. I've spent the day reading outside today, it's such a simple but enjoyable pleasure. Loving your book choices too; I thought the novel 'Never Let Me Go' was even more resonating and thought provoking than the film and I love 'The Great Gatsby.' Hope you enjoy them! x

  4. The playsuit is lovely, and the hear ring is super cute! I'm suffering from major book withdrawl, I can't seem to find anything that catches my eye, I've never read the Great Gatsby either, but I want to eventually.

  6. Went to the library today to return some books and I definitely think you're on the right track spending summer reading in the sun!

    Lovely playsuit, and I'm in love with that heart ring! Love double finger rings, but for some reason I find them uncomfortable to wear! Like I've got webbed fingers or something..

    Also just checked our that Bijoux Dolly shop... Absolutely beauuutiful stuff!! Damn needing to save!
