Bring on the Sunshine


Cape/shawl Market, Vest Market, Jeans Topshop, Shoes Carvela



Armour Ring Asos, Cross Ring Urban Outfitters, Bracelets Random

I’m a bit obsessed with crochet at the moment! What I would really like is a crochet beige dress but I haven’t been able to find one that’s quite right!
Anyway my outfit today is a bit of a mishmash of things, the Topshop trousers are new, they have a waxed finish to them which I really like as to me they feel like a leather trouser substitute, as leather trousers make my legs look like sausages!
The black crochet cape/shawl thing I have had for years, I got it from a market when I was about 12 (I still have it due to my problem with throwing clothes away).
Some of my sale purchases arrived through the post today!  I got a lace navy dress, a baggy layered effect t-shirt and a pair of flare leggings, which are just brilliant and perfect for creating the whole 70’s vibe that’s around at the moment. Have any of you found any bargins in the sales ?
I can’t wait to wear the flares with my Lita’s which I have just ordered from America!!!  SO EXCITED!

  12. I don't see a problem with keeping old clothes if you still wear them and that crochet shawl obviously is still a great, wearable piece. It looks great!
