velvet dreams

burgundy velvet top: charity shop
black cycling shorts: H&M
gold & black statement necklace: charity shop
heeled Chelsea boots: Mr Shoes

I've scored some right whoppers from my go-to charity shop lately. This oversized velvet top (I picked up a similar one in black too) is something I imagine Topshop to be charging £40 for soon and my two came to no more than £4. The necklace I picked up today, along with a sweet white lace blouse that I'll be sure to show you soon.

The boots are another purchase this week - I swear I don't buy new stuff all of the time, but I decided to treat myself. They're from my beloved Mr Shoes and are by Destroy. I have wanted them for months and months so finally caved.

Despite being a summer-lovin' girl at heart, is anyone else actually quite looking forward to the autumn/winter 'trends' like me?

  2. I love this outfit. And your fringe. And your garden.

    Totally agree about the top - Topshop love vintage inspired stuff. I swear they get most of their ideas from charity shops then just make cheap replicas and hike the price up. You got a fab bargain there :) x

  3. I'm still guessing on the autumn winter trends! But hey, that top is gorgeous and a great bargain! You look lovely always.
