What I Wore: Pastels and Purple

I have had this dress for a while. I love the long slit down the side and I think the pastel patterns is kind of unusual, but it feels too dressy for every day, so I’ve been wearing it with this t-shirt over the top! I’m also still wearing my new Kate Moss Rimmel purple lipstick, although food and this lipstick do not go well together. I have a feeling my purple / dark red lipstick collection might grow over the next few months – I love wearing a super dark lipstick with an otherwise quite girly outfit.

I bought it at The Vagabond Bazaar in York last summer – unfortunately I’m struggling to find out the name of the company that I bought it from. I love the length, and I’d love to get some more necklaces so that I can start layering them – I’ve been eyeing up some of the pendants on the WAISTE website!

I couldn’t help but include this photos of Archie. It’s a special day when he stays still for long enough to have his photo taken. Hanging out with this bunny is one of the best parts of my day ❤

I hope your week is off to a good start!

In the Meadow

I’ve been feeling quite (okay, very) inspired by the 70s recently. Haim are my hair inspiration now and forever. I’ve been coveting just about everything from the Honeywood VIntage etsy shop, but until then I’ll just have to make do with things that I find in the attic, like this dress / nightgown that I found a couple of weeks ago. Taking pictures in this particular field is very nostalgic for me because it’s where me and my friend Joe used to go to take pictures when he was doing his photography A level. It makes me sad to know that within the next couple of years this field will be turned into a housing estate. Where will I go to take pictures in flowy dresses?

Whilst I was taking these photos, a horse ran past followed 30 seconds later by its rider. Don’t worry, everyone involved was fine but it was definitely more exciting than your average outfit photo taking trip!

I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be walking around bare armed and bare-legged, it’s getting chilly! I hope you’re having the best Thursday.

Update: I’ve just found out that my mum bought this dress from a market in Johannesburg in the 70s – what a lovely history it has 🙂
