Having an impromptu day off from the world today. I usually work on a Wednesday but apparently not today for an unexplained reason. Not that I'm complaining, I've had a productive day off running errands in town, spending money on things to further my fangirl life and shooting today's outfit with my neighbours' kitty.

(Shirt, New Look;
Shorts, Forever 21;
Tights, Wolford;
Boots; ASOS;
Necklace, Topshop;
Bracelet, c/o Happytoasts Jewellery;
Bag, c/o Clippy.)

When I bought these shorts from Forever 21, I immediately paired them with this shirt in my head; two of my favourite pieces in the same outfit makes this my new go-to! It felt a little dressy in the town centre if I'm honest, but I like it. My beautiful ASOS boots arrived this morning, was a pleasant surprise to see my brother haul the huge box up into my bedroom, I hadn't ordered from ASOS in a few months and had my reservations about their delivery service. I really do adore these boots, I might finally stop banging on about them now that I have them, but probably not, you know me and my obsessive personality!

My jewellery tastes have done a 180° recently, I've gone from the fun, cutesy and slightly eclectic pieces to a more simplistic version of before. I'm going to hold a blog sale or put some things on eBay very soon (read: when I can be bothered to take photos and slowly chip away at my soul) and a lot of my worn-once or old jewellery will be in there. However, when Farah contacted me about a week or so ago, I jumped at the chance to review a piece from her line. I chose the Naya bracelet, which features a gorgeous jet black genuine Swarovski crystal on a delicate brass link chain. I haven't stopped wearing it since I received it last week, and it'll look lovely with other delicate chain bracelets layered with it.

Don't forget to go and vote here for my Clippy bag entry (even if the photo is kind of wrong on my entry) so I can have a chance of providing a 30% discount for Daisybutter readers! I think I'm going to spend my evening replying to emails, reading my HP: Film Wizardry book, nursing my upset/weak stomach and drinking ice tea. ♥

  13. I adore those boots, they look great with the shorts! I'm going to have to get my hands on that book ASAP, although I'll probably be completely jealous reading it as those people have my dream job.

    Lucy: Thank you so, so much (: I think it's one of my favourites too actually, I love the colours and my boots haha. Clearly not over my obsession just yet ;)

    Sarah: Thank you! Such a cute kitty, right? She always wanders the street when I take my outfit photos haha, loves the camera (:

    Steph: Aw thanks Steph! Her jewellery is adorable, so unique yet classic at the same time (:

    Elise: Thanks sweet. Ooh you should, I bought it with my Waterstones card points haha, and it has so, so much in it. Replica programmes, brochures, a Hogwarts acceptance letter and a Marauder's Map! I'll email you later this week about the post sweetie (:

  23. Cara: Thank you (: Mine are a UK size 4 and they run pretty true to size I think. x

    Hayley: Hahaha aw! Such a sweet cat, she tends to hide in our paper recycling bin a lot. Thanks lovely, defs my new favourite outfit.

    Lyzi: I'm so in love with them! Going to get a lot of wear out of these badboys I think (: Hope you had a lovely weekend with the boy sweetie!

    Penny: I absolutely adore the black, they won't get ruined in the rain, etc. (:

    Jess: Aw thank you so much! They're not high heels, very much a daytime heel which I'd never usually go for, but they're so perfect and Isabel Marant-alike. It's such a good word, isn't it? I love adding words to my vocabulary.

  24. I love this outfit, those shoes are gorgeous! I've found that ASOS delivery is usually really good, but then again I now use their next day delivery, there's less chance they'll get it wrong then...
    Your neighbour's cat is very cute :)
    Hope your stomach gets better soon xx
