braces, a bee and the beach





skirt - vero moda @ asos, top - asos, espadrilles - river island @ asos, hat - asos

finally managed to snag myself a pair of tie-up espadrilles! i'd been after a pair for so long but every pair i came across were a bit less than perfect, and i knew exactly how i wanted them to be. then i came across these and they were just right. i've never 'added to basket' so quick! yes, pretty much all of this oufit is asos - can you tell i made an order the day i got paid this month? the braces attached to this skirt are amazing (if a little long - i think vero moda must think people have giant-like torso's), without them i wouldn't have considered this skirt at all, but they make it that little bit different.

can you see the necklace i'm wearing? i was sent it by les jumelles, who do some really amazing vintage-inspired jewellery. this particular necklace has a little green bead and a cute little bee on it. but me being a tad forgetful, forgot to take a close-up photo of it! trust me though, it's lovely.

i took these photos on a trip to the beach, this cute little park is right on top of the cliffs and nicely sheltered from the wind that always seems to accompany warm days lately. this outfit felt very beach-y, i think it's the straw hat, which i love and refuse to take off. black hat, consider yourself replaced.

  7. It's definitely a beachy and springy outfit! The weather is still too fickle here to go to the beach. =( But I'm glad you were able to go!
