NEW salmon jumper: birthday present from Topshop
NEW bird/clock pendant: birthday present



NEW pearl charm necklace: birthday present
NEW Amazon Kindle: birthday present

I've been desperate to show you some things I've bought this week with a little birthday money. The River Island midi dress didn't photograph particularly well annoyingly, but I love it. It has that vintage feel that the store normally lacks in and it was a pretty good price at £20 down from £44.99. The leather shorts were also in the sale for about £17. I never shop in Jane Norman but was encouraged by my bestie because of their closing down sale - have actually wanted a pair for ages so it seemed like fate.

The Topshop tee is heavenly - if a little pricey but hey, it was love at first sight - as are some of my other birthday pressies. Had to sneak the Kindle in there of course. I might read 'Come Away With Me' now in the beautiful sunshine and test out this bad boy...
