Champagne and Lace

Earrings: Vintage | Dress: C/O SheInside | Ring: Claire's | Heels: Steve Madden

I don't usually post dressed up outfits (as I usually don't wear any!), but occasionally I like to get dressed up when I have a reason to! I paired this lovely dress from SheInside with my Steve Maddens, vintage earrings (which used to belong to my granmum), and a antique-style ring from Claire's that I've had for ages. I absolutely love this dress, it reminds me so much of one Kate Middleton wore last summer.


P.S. Have you heard Kate might be having a girl? Is it silly for me to be excited?! Girl power!

Spelt Breadsticks

As some of you may know by now, I love baking. I often make breadsticks (sometimes with cheese, as above, sometimes just plain with a bit of rock salt to have aside a meal), but I always use white flour. I decided to do something a little different last time I made them! I used spelt flour (as I use in many of the muffin recipes I love) and I think they turned out quite well. I may have baked them for a few minutes too long, as I was having a hard time telling whether they were done, but overall they came out well and were super easy to make (as always!).


Kissed the boys and made them cry

Top: Sirens | Skirt: Thrift Shop | Tights: Hue | Heels: Steve Madden | Nail Polish: Teenage Dream/OPI

I realised after I put this outfit together that everything in it, aside from the heels, was bought in 2010. I've been thinking maybe I did it subconsciously as I've been feeling a bit nostalgic for that year lately. Sometimes I wish I were 16 again and didn't have to make proper decisions about my life and future and could just coast along in school for a bit longer. On the other hand, I'd never want to be 16 again.


Early Spring

The first of the spring flowers have begun to bloom in the past couple of weeks, a few snow drops here and crocuses there. It looks like there are going to loads of daffodils this year, though none have come out quite yet. It's been rainy but temperate the past few days, I was actually able to wear my jacket without doing it up yesterday -- spring is coming!


It's best not to mention you're craving for attention

Earrings: eBay | Sunglasses: C/O Chicnova | Trenchcoat: ??? | Bodysuit: Marilyn Monroe Intimates | Trousers: Thrift Shop | Heels: Steve Madden

I hadn't done a proper vintage-inspired outfit in a while so I decided I'd try and pull one together. I paired my Marilyn Monroe Intimates
bodysuit with my thrifted houndstooth trousers and black trench. And I finished off the look with my pointed toe heels, anchor earrings (I promise they aren't the only earrings I own), and Chicnova cat eye sunglasses. The nail polish is the same I've worn in the past few posts, Last Friday Night by OPI and the lipstick I'm wearing is MAC's Ruby Woo.
