Cranberry & Navy



What I'm Wearing; Cranberry Jumper - thrifted . . . Navy blazer - Debenhams (sale!) . . . Scrabble letter necklace - gift . . . Carousel necklace - Accessorize . . . Clock necklace - topshop . . . Cream scarf - Zara.

This was yesterdays outfit but I'm such a scatterbrain I forgot post it in time... along with my fave necklaces at the moment, which I decided to wear all at once, 'cuz I'm far too fickle to choose just one, tehe.

I'm off to a Mad Hatters Tea Party this afternoon. Now as we all know (or in my case, didn't know until earlier this week) it is customary at such an event, to wear your most outlandishly awesome hat, so I'll be wearing my vintage clock hat, which (other than my beloved bowler hat) is the most epic hat I own. I've also got a surprise for the birthday girl, which involves eating a mouse in a teapot... I bet you're all horrified now, but I don't want to ruin the surprise, as much as I don't want you to think I eat mice, so I might as well tell you... we've made her a cake, shaped like a teapot, with a little sugar mouse peeping his head out (oh and by "we've" I mean my mum did everything whilst I 'supervised' ;) ... yep, it was a real team effort *cough cough*

Today's Anthem: "Bird Song w/. intro" - Florence + the Machine.

  5. Oh Skins - it is wonderful. I saw the American ad - it's just completely pointless, right?! And I'm excited too about the new season! It doesn't look like it'll be as good but then I thought that about Season 3 and loved it, so :)
    Love the cranberry-ness, you look gorgeous.
    I have that carousel necklace too!
