yes, i realise i'm about a year too late jumping on the buckle wedge bandwagon! i'd been wanting these shoes or similar ones for a really long time but just never got round to ordering them, but then these popped up in the asos sale for something crazy like 65% off so i had to have them. they're so comfortable! and have just the right height of wedge for me so i can wear them out and about. i really would like some more wedges in my wardrobe because they're so my kind of shoe, a heel without really being a heel, so i might have to order myself a few (cheap, if possible) pairs for winter.
am i imagining it, or is there some sort of saying about how you shouldn't wear pink with red? well, nevertheless, i think this doesn't count because it's burgundy and pastel pink rather than red and pink. i think this outfit is a bit boring, i'm really going to have to start accessorising!

and so it happened again.. more topshop overload. this blouse is a new purchase, i think it's so lovely and quite an unusual colour, and satisfies my current need for peterpan collars. however it's so hard to pair with anything in my wardrobe, almost nothing went with it! in the end the only thing that i found which looked reasonable was these lace shorts.

quite a simple outfit today with no patterns. i usually like to wear at least one pattern, even if it's really simple, but i think this outfit works without it.
i'm really looking forward to autumn now, it's possibly my favourite season, and i can't wait to start wearing thick jumpers and woolen tights again! i've missed layering and scarves and wooly hats.. although i'm sure once it's freezing english weather again i'll change my mind!

this is one of the packages i was waiting to receive - an amazing playsuit. i can't believe how much i love it! i'd been eyeing up a very similar one from urban outfitters for a while but at £55 it was too expensive, so when i saw this one on ebay i knew i had to have it! i almost lost out at the last minute, and i probably paid more than i wanted to, but i don't care as it HAD to be mine. it's such a great creamy brown colour and the bottom half is slightly pleated. to sum up, LOVE.
i'm really pleased to say i've been featured again on a couple of blogs, and i couldn't be more flattered! i'm so overwhelmed by all the comments you guys leave for me and all the kind things you have to say, so thank you!
check out the features here -
p.s - is there anything else you guys would like to see on my blog? so far i've only ever posted outfit photos but i'd love some input about what else i should post.

please excuse the unfortunate hunchback pose i've acquired here, there must have been something really exciting on the floor.
just one photo today i'm afraid; i'm getting so picky with photos! unfortunately my boyfriend, who takes my photos, isn't very patient and finds it a hassle to take my photos, so they are often rushed and it poor locations. on that note, i have to apologise for not being one of those bloggers who churns out 1 or 2 posts a day, i feel i should be, but i don't have the oppurtunity to take any photos during the week as i'm working, so they all have to be rushed in on the weekends. this makes me very sad (not least as i have to wear horrible clothes for work during the week - i hate not wearing my own clothes, i feel like someone has snatched my identity). i can only apologise and hope that in the future i can take more.
this skirt was bought in the sale and when it arrived on my doormat i was sad to find it was too long, so i hacked about 10cm from the bottom. i have no sewing skills however so the hem remains frazzled and unsightly.
i've been scouring ebay lately for some bargains, and am currently awaiting the arrival of 2 very lovely parcels! ebay is such a great website.
