stab me in the heart, why don't you?

Wednesday, 20 April 2011


navy top: Topshop
white strappy top: New Look
denim shorts: H&M
cream crochet cover-up: vintage
sandals: Dorothy Perkins (last year)
key necklace: Accessorize
scarf: Primark
stone ring: Boots
orange and gold bracelet: Tesco
half frame sunglasses: Topshop


A very simple outfit for you on a simply lovely day. I know us Brits probably talk about the weather constantly but it's for good reason. Whoever thought we would have such spanking good sunshine in the middle of April? Apparently Turkey was 17°c yesterday, 19°c in Benidorm, 20°c in Tenerife... 25°c in good ol' Blighty! And it's clearly hotter today. See, what did I tell you? Weather chatterboxes.

I picked up this crocheted number in a Salvation Army last week some time. It has absolutely no labels and although their ticketing said it was a size 18, I feel like it could fit anyone. What do you think? You've also probably noticed that I've got my hair up for the second time in my outfit post history (shock horror) because I thought I'd give the whole headscarf thing a go. While I'm certain it suits people with really layered hair (see Jazzpad, cor am I envious?!) or fringes more, it's certainly growing on me.

But anyway, enough clothes - back to the weather. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to read my new copy of Grazia (serial killer in Manhattan, just what I want to read with the looming trip and everything) in the sunshine. I hope you have a bright bright bright sunshine-y day!

  1. What a lovely outfit! I'm envious of your weather darling! It's been a tease here-- warm weather but murky, grey skies.. very 'Wuthering Heights'.

    Anyhow, you look lovely, lovely.

    xxoo

    Your hair looks really nice with the headscarf. I never wear mine up either, I'm so rubbish at styling my hair!

  13. I want those sunglasses! LOL I am a sucker for short shorts, especially since you have the legs to pull them off. I also love the crochet cover up...it's great for those nippy spring nights.
