All the talk is standard fare, walk the walk if it gets you there

Today was rather glorious so me and Abi went to the Arboretum. Here's what I wore...


* Chiffon & lace blouse - H&M
* Envelope necklace - vintage fair
* Shorts - Dorothy P'
* Decorative tights - Topshop
* THE Ava bag - Marc B.
* Brogue shoes - thrifted





We were meant to be taking photos, but then some perv started following us and kept asking where we lived. So instead of saying something incredibly witty and inappropriate... we ran away. Yep, that's the stuff superheroes are made of... FEAR. Fear that if I was left talking to that creep for too long, I would unleash my (currently unexistant) superpowers and KA-POW! mwahaha ;)
Not long after our heroic power-walk I realised my shoes were killing me toe-by-toe, so we went to Primark to buy some plimpsoles. Yet I came out with a pair of ballet flats, a chunky floral ring and a pair of sparkly socks... the socks were an impulse buy, near the til, you know what it's like, hehe.


Even though I was determined to avoid my manic shopaholic habits I ended up putting a teeny-tiny dent in my cash card;
I bought a black water-fall draped cardigan from H&M - which I can't really wear until autumn because of the weather :( but it was too perfect to leave in the store collecting dust! So for now it's going to live in my wardrobe, collecting dust... tehehe.

I also got a navy blazer from Debenhams. Fate was calling me in two major ways...
1) The blazer leapt off it's coat hanger as I walked past - as if it was trying to catch my attention, and my heart, haha...
and 2) It was 50% off - bargain matey!

Anywhoo dears, I'm off to bed, nighty night! x x x

  24. I love your brogues, and the outfit is really cute. :-)

    Oh, and about your question: quark is a kind of cheese, at least according to Wikipedia. :D I don't know whether it is easy to find in England (you're English, right?), but I recommend you to buy quark, mix it with whipped cream and berries/fruit, plus remember to add sugar. It's a common dessert in Finland, and it's so delicious!
