tiny birds.


cardigan - forever21, blouse - new look, shorts - topshop

this cardigan is my first ever forever21 purchase! i was so pleased when they arrived over here (even though the only store is in birmingham and therefore completely unreachable to me), as i'd browsed the US online shop and thought they had some nice things. i ordered this cardigan (and a jumper i'm yet to wear) and was fairly impressed with the price - kind of comparable to new look. speaking of which, they have some pretty nice things lately! including this blouse, which has little birds on. n'aww.

as you can see i was fiddling around with various things in this outfit, sleeves up/down, collar done up/not done up etc. which way do you prefer?

i have a few geeky blogger questions i'm hoping some of you might be able to help me with! i was thinking of setting up a blog shop like a few other bloggers have done, and was wondering how easy that would be, or how successful any of you with one have found it? and also, if any of you know of any helpful tips or links on how to do up your blog - i really want a pretty blog, but have no idea how to sort out links or headers or anything!

  2. Etsy is very easy to set up if you want to have a shop.
    Perhaps some art/design students would be happy to help with your blog
    in return for a link or some goods from your shop?

  5. I set up a blog shop but it hasn't been successful however I have a lot less followers than you, so am sure you'd get lots of traffic!

    Really loving the feminine blouse and colours against the leather shorts, which are great!

  8. This outfit is fab! I really love the cardigan, the color, the shape of it... totally Grandpa chic! Haha, if there is such a thing. I prefer the shirt unbuttoned at the top, as it looks a bit more relaxed. Great outfit, darling.

  9. I love that cardi!
    Yeah, I heard about them coming over a while back, but was miffed as the only one was in Birmingham, that's too far from me also. :(
    Isn't there one in Dublin?
    I can't help you with the shop, I'm no good with techy stuff either!

  15. I love the blouse, the second I saw it I scrolled down to see where it was from and couldn't believe it was New Look! I might have to pop in!
    I like it done up all the way but then again I like the cardigan sleeves down but bother together might look odd.
    As for setting up a blog shop I'm in the process right now too, I hope things will actually sell after I've spent ages taking all the photos! x

  30. I always prefer sleeves up, I have a weird habit of always pushing mine up haha.

    I love this feminine feel of the blouse paired with the tougher shorts. It's a great look!

  35. anyway its a very late comment, I also argee with most of the others. Think the second picture, the buttoned up, suits you very much more. Looks more feminine and cute.
    I'm happy you followed that style. A good decision :-)
    Looking foreward to see more.

    Hugs
