Monochrome square print cami, River Island; Khaki 'Amy' zip detail jeans, rag & bone; Kitty flatforms, A boutique in Hong Kong; Mulberry Alexa in Petticoat White; Nails, butter LONDON 'Fiver', Lips, YSL Rouge Volupte in Rose Paris.

Bought this River Island cami top on a whim when I was on my way to meet Tanya and Sarah at Selfridges a week or so ago. Typical Dream Team tales. I haven't shopped at River Island in absolutely forever so was pleasantly surprised to see a new collection of pieces sans sequins, cut-outs and baroque prints. Pushing their frankly scary sale aside, I wandered out with this top and haven't stopped wearing it since. You've been warned...!

For a rare day off work yet one that I spent at an exciting meeting nonetheless, I paired it with my unpictured Zara boucle jacket and my rag &; bone khaki jeans. Can't tell if I've eaten one too many ice-creams to combat the heat or if these managed to shrink a size in the wash like I planned, but they're the perfect fit now! I also added my kitty face flatforms and my Mulberry Alexa in a bid to rewear it more: the buckles and postman lock are so darn fiddly for everyday 'running errands' use.

This week is going to be a nice chilled out one as far as I can work out. Lots of Beast album listening, and no firm plans in the diary aside from a pre-birthday soiree at Lily's joint with the girls and a drop-in to HYPER JAPAN 2013 - my favourite date in the calendar. I'm on a no-spending push as well, because I had a sudden quarter-life crisis the other day and realised I should probably save for a new car/flat/Prada handbag and not Pret salads/Selfridges jaunts/buying twenty magazines in a day.

    1. I'm not too terrible at saving specific amounts, but I know I could save so much more if I reined it my spending habits! This morning I half decided on a temporary long-term move to Hong Kong once I've saved enough up! x

  13. You look so cute!

    I have a satchel with a real buckle on and I find it so annoying to use, especially shopping or drinking when I need my purse a lot. It's super adorable though, so I guess it wins out every time ;)

    1. Aaw thank you Sophie! Ah I so know the feeling, prettiness vs. practicality is the worst thing ever. Buckles are so hard to contend with!

    1. Thank you Maria! I'm not too bad at it, but I keep 'allowing' myself more and more splurges at the moment when I know I could be saving so much more as I live at home - eek! x
