Let's cut to the chase: I didn't wear this outfit today, I wore a variation of it, but this is a recreation of what I wore to spend a day in London with one of the best friends last week. I posted a snippet of it in Sunday's photo diary installment and Emma, amongst others, wanted to see it in all its' pink glory.


(White sheer/burnout top with angel wing detail on back, Urban Outfitters;
Pink skater skirt, Topshop;
Jacket, Warehouse;
Owl necklace, Bla Bla Bla Shop;
Rings, Dolly Bow Bow & Miss Selfridge;
Nails, Models Own 'Grace Green'.)

This was possibly the most inappropriate outfit to have worn last week during the storm in London last Thursday. Needless to say, I got absolutely drenched but it was all in good fun! I also wore my Mulberry Alexa in Petticoat White, sheer black polka dot tights and my little battered tan brogues, which aren't photographed, but please use your imagination. I don't wear tights/shoes when I'm indoors and wasn't going to just for the purpose of these photos! Sheer tops and a little, floaty skirt is a great go-to outfit for me, nothing makes me feel happier than wearing a sweet skirt out! I've accumulated a lot of these styles of skirts recently, time to branch out? I think so. I really like the khaki green and dusty pink tones together in this outfit.

As you may have noticed yesterday evening, I've installed a new layout to the blog. It took a lot of trial and error to get it how it is, and I'm looking to make some extra tweaks here and there. I really like the fresher colour palette, new header and fonts, to blow my own trumpet! Let me know what you think? I've already got an Autumn layout ready to go for September!

I'm popping out to Nando's with my brother and sister for lunch in a minute. Haven't been in what feels like months, and I'm too excited! Then I'm hoping to relax and apply for some internships and jobs, plan my dissertation, respond to emails and read in the garden. I always forget how lovely weekends are when I'm not working 11-hour shifts! How are you spending your Saturdays? And will anyone else be watching the Britain's Got Talent final tonight? I'm watching purely for Ant, Dec and Michael Mcintyre, the acts this year are cheesetastic!

  9. I love the new layout :)
    And your outfit! I agree, the pink and green go really well together.
    I watch BGT almost purely for Michael McIntyre too! He's brilliant, which is more than I can say for most of the acts this year! (Although there are a few that I think are really quite good!)

  16. Firstly love the new layout lady! The header is so cute! I love having a new layout on my blog makes it feel all fresh and shiny and new!
    Cute outfit too, I always go for skirt and floaty top when I'm not sure what to wear :) Not watching BGT tonight, I'm actually so sick of it, even Mr McIntyre can't make it watchable for me :P

  17. Wonderful outfit. Real simple, but the colours works so well together. The jewelry is gorgeous as well and I love that t-shirt.
    Btw, I'll be watching BGT tonight for the exact same reason. And&Dec and Michael McIntyre are the only good things about that show, but they're definitely worth it to watch.

  18. I like the new layout. It's easier to read and still very simple. I'm having trouble finding the "right" layout for me at the moment.

    I like this outfit and I see you've paid homage to Mean Girls. ;]

  19. Be careful when washing and drying the skirt! I had the blue version... One wash later, it shrunk a lot and got a hole in :/ Just thought I'd warn you :) I was devastated when it happened. It's a gorgeous outfit :) and love the new blog layout! x
