Window shopping and jaw dropping.


For me the concept of going to a huge shopping centre penniless is normally a bleak one. None the less, today I went window shopping with two of my closest friends and, despite the lack of money, had a really lovely time. As hard as it was to wave goodbye to some of the gems I found throughout the day, I channelled my love of the clothes through taking pictures of them for you guys instead. Sure, it's not quite as good as buying them, but I'll get over it!

Today in pictures:

My first memory of jelly shoes is wearing them at probably about four years old. Style really does come back around because last summer I bought a pair of pastel lilac "JuJu Jellies" from River Island in the sale. They are so adorable. Then whilst out today, I noticed that jelly shoes are everywhere... I mean everywhere worth mentioning. They're more chunky than my ones, and I'm hoping to get myself a pair once I have the funds.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned my obsession with moustaches ever before, but I simply love them! Pretty much every day I draw a moustache somewhere on my wrist or hand, it comes naturally now. So as you can imagine these leggings are like a dream. Coming from someone who isn't a huge fan of patterned leggings, that is saying something.
This ornate brown leather bag caught my eye in Urban Outfitters, and I LOVE it. It's simply perfect for me, being the vintage lover that I am, and is large enough to fit your everyday essentials. I see it with a midi or maxi pleated chiffon skirt and blouse.


Here are two pairs of shoes that I literally fell head over heels for. The studding on both pairs with the chunky silver buckles and almost flatform soles make them my shoe crushed of the moment. I think I prefer the open toe and sides on the second pair making them a touch more summer ready, but I love the zebra print on the first.

You'd have to live in a cave not to notice the rise of tie-dye, bleaching and ombre dye. Urban Outfitters have been doing it for some time however, a long time before it became a trend in fact. As much as I do adore these shorts though, I can't help but wonder if I could just make them myself instead of splashing the cash.

It becomes clear to me that there really is nothing that UO won't tie-dye, including socks. Maybe a tad overboard, but hey, attention to detail is always good. Another pair of what can only be described as snazzy socks, were these metallic/glitter knit ones, I can't help but think that in winter I'll be after a pair.

I. Need. This. Shirt. It's quite frankly a matter of life or death! Ok, not quite, but I would still love to have this piece of beautiful in my wardrobe. It has everything I'm loving at the moment - ombre dye, embellished collar, stud detail, Hawaiian print, cut sleeves and it’s totally perfect. (River Island)

There's no better way to end this than with a sunset. This post card print top is beautiful, and makes me want to jet off to a private island. It would work perfectly with a pair of bleached pale blue shorts in the day, or with a black maxi and gold jewellery at night. I'm also drawn to the idea of adding some black velvet wedges to the outfit to finish it off. Gorgeous. (Urban Outfiters)

  2. I love this post! Oh, and about the tie dye shorts, yes, you can do them yourself! Its sooo easy too. That's what I did. You just take some white shorts and tie dye them, then let them almost dry then wash the dye out and wash/dry them. That's pretty much it, it's really fun to do too! :)
