Grey marl Minnie Mouse vest, New Look; Dress worn as skirt, c/o Ever Ours; Scarf, via London Fashion Weekend; Mulberry Alexa in Petticoat White; Mint green low wedge peeptoes, Urban Outfitters.
One of my go-to looks at the moment is this really-old Minnie Mouse vest that I bought on a whim with my friend Amelia about four years ago! I can't bear to part with it, even if I am supposed to be twenty-one and a 'young professional' and all that. Amelia and I went through a phase of randomly buying clothes that coordinated each others', and to this day, half our wardrobes are just similar variations of each others. I just loves it. It's surprisingly lightweight and free-form, so I threw it on top of my Ever Ours dress for a sweeter, floaty look. Beady eyed readers will recognise this outfit from my Harry Potter Studio Tour post, too!

Currently a little more than enamoured by NU'EST's 'Not Over You' and finishing up my billionth reread of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which the early morning commuters have found seriously amusing while toting their fancy schmancy Kindles around. If anyone has book recommendations, please send them my way in a comment! I'm probably going to pick up Murakami's 1Q84 soon, though.

  2. That vest is so cute! I have tops from yearssss ago that I'm still in love with!
    I've heard 1Q84 is fantastic :) I read The Great Gatsby recently, if you've not read that I recommend it, it's fantastic! I also picked up 'Never Let Me Go' and Ian McEwan's 'Solar', I'm about to read them :) x

  6. Hey hey- don't knock the Kindle. I love books, but purely for weight/space saving on the handbag front when on trains a lot, my Kindle makes me a happy bunny!

    Best book I've read lately- Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson.
