Top picks: week 35

Just to jump on the band wagon, I went down quite a monochrome route with my top picks this week:

Outfit post: Just another day

A bit of a plain every day outfit, jazzed up with a scarf.

T-shirt: Primark then hand painted, Cardigan: New Look, Scarf: India, Skirt: Dorothy Perkins, Leggings: Primark, Boots: Office

I'm not much of a scarf wearer but I make an exception for this lovely I got from India in October. I just love the colours. It gives an otherwise plain outfit a fun kick of colour. The rest of the outfit are bits I've had for a few years and have served me well. The boots I got for £90 about 4 years ago and have been my go to winter boots. I actually love them! Money well spent. And the cardigan is so easy just to throw over a t-shirt or dress all year round. 

The t-shirt was originally from Primark but I hand painted it during one of my customising phases with a pair of love owls holding wings. I'm really pleased to find that the paint hasn't faded after so many washes over the couple of years I've owned it. And the fact that it's a Primark t-shirt impresses me that it's still in one piece!

What are your go to wardrobe essentials for an every day outfit?

Friday Funny: Another cat I'm afraid

They're just so funny though!


If it fits, I ships.

You definitely can't call this cat claustrophobic!

It was either that or this awesome Tom Felton tweet:


The most awkward hug ever!

Top picks: week 34

Been a busy couple of days. Here's my top picks from the high street this week.


Though I'm not particularly fond of their prices, Topshop has come up trumps when it comes to blouses this week. I generally have a weakness for pretty blouses but Topshop usually isn't my go to store for them. And speaking of blouses, how awesome would one look tucked into either of these shorts from Miss Selfridge? I love that the polka dot pair look like a skirt. I don't have enough dressy shorts. 

How 50s is this Modcloth dress? I love it. I think I must be in a bit of a spring time mood this week. Especially teamed with these sweet daisy studs from Accessorize. Though Modcloth's clothing is mainly out of my reach budget wise (job or no job) their jewellery is surprisingly affordable. I'm a sucker for anything carousel themed and this pin is perfect. I would probably have to break my unofficial no wearing brooches rule for it. 

I've just had to remind myself that it is still 2 degrees here so I should probably have something more practical on my list so I offer up these tights from ASOS. I like that they're interesting in a way that doesn't scream about it. 

Are you already shopping for spring? (either for real or in your head like me!)
