I picked up this coat in Birmingham for the bargain price of £2 – yes, you heard me right! My friend Leah introduced me to this amazing chaotic, cheap vintage shop called Credit Crunch Vintage. You have to dig to find the good stuff, but it’s worth it! I’ve been wearing this coat all week. It’s lightweight and perfect for the British summer! The rest of the outfit just seemed to make sense – dungarees always make sense! I’m not sure how clear it is in the photos, but I got this lovely Lime Crime lipstick for my birthday. It smells like vanilla, and it’s the perfect purple!

I finally got myself a new pair of sensible shoes. I picked up the last pair of size sevens in the New Look sale – they’re vegan, and they don’t have a heel which is exactly what I was looking for! Chelsea boots aren’t the most glamorous shoes in the world, but they’re comfy and they go with everything. These photos were taken after James and I enjoyed a picnic in the park during a charity shop trip to Newcastle. I’ve been doing lot of charity shop shopping recently to stock my etsy shop, and I’m not complaining!
Last weekend I drove down to Oxford to visit my brother and celebrate his birthday with him. It was really fun, and I loved seeing his flat and his favourite foody places. We ate lunch at Atomic Pizza – a retro diner style cafe overflowing with comic books and pop culture memorabilia – I recommend a visit if you’re in Oxford! It’s such a beautiful city (although not as beautiful as York which I miss terribly, especially at this time of year.) On Saturday morning we wandered down to the river to watch some rowing, and Oscar took these photos of me outside Christchurch College. This coat is one of my favourite things that I’ve ever found in a vintage shop. The gold embroidery just kills me. It’s not super warm though, so I’m wearing two jumpers underneath. I decided to wear it with dungarees to make my outfit more casual!
My nail varnish is a silver polish from Nails Inc (It came free with Glamour!) with a sparkly Barry M shade over the top. They chipped really quickly but I think I might use this combination again anyway, because they’re so festive and sparkly! I’ve also bought a new pair of ear muffs. When I lived in York I cycled everywhere, and ear muffs were very necessary to stop my ears from freezing. They make me so much warmer, and they don’t make my head itchy like wooly hats do!

This week I’ve started to think about christmas shopping. This is actually quite early for me – I’m usually a buy-things-the-day-before kind of girl but I’m going to be organised this year! Have you started yet?
Happy valentines day everyone! I hope you’re having a nice day. If it’s not going your way, don’t worry, you can look at some pictures of me to cheer you up.
Over the weekend I braved the cold weather to take some pictures in a park near where I live. I LOVE these dungarees. I found them in a vintage shop in Leicester, and almost didn’t buy them. I’m so glad I did because I wear them all the time! Sometime, I wear them with pigtails and a checked shirt and I look like I live on a farm. It’s so much fun.
If this post had a conclusion, it would be that you should get some dungarees, they are the best!
Thanks to Amy for being my glamorous photographer! If you want to see more of her, you can find her here and here.
