166. Live your dream

Scarf:  Vintage
Top:  New Look
Cardigan:  Charity Shop
Belt:  New Look
Shoes:  Primark
Evening all! I decided to try something a little different today by wrapping one of my many scarfs around my head to create a different look. Paired with my maxi skirt and long, wavy hair, silver rings and 'peace' belt I sort of look like a hippie, which I quite like.
The weather is so up and down lately that it's hard to know what to wear! You wake up and it's cold and rainy so you put lots of layers on and by mid-day your boiling hot because the sun has decided to kindly make an appearance! Sheesh, I can't keep up! Anyone else feeling the same?

165. It's looking like a beautiful day

Blouse:  Romwe
Skirt:  New Look
Bag:  Primark
Scarf:  Vintage
Shoes:  Primark
Hello lovelies! This was actually yesterday's look but for some reason Lookbook and Blogger were playing up on my laptop, so luckily they're working again so I can show you my outfit! I was actually inspired by a very expensive blouse I saw in Brighton which had a bright blue and tan/brown pattern on it. I remember thinking that the two colours went really well together but it's not something that I would have thought to put together myself. When I got home I put the blouse and skirt together on my bed (image below) and found that it went really well together, so that's how I came up with this outfit! Sorry for the over-extended rant and reasoning behind my outfit! Haha!
What do you think? I'd love to know your thoughts :)
Also, one last thing! I have mentioned Our My Your on my blog before, a new creative online magazine which will soon be lauched. The website involves Art, Fashion, Food, Music and more and is worth looking at when it launches, however in the mean time you can check out their Wordpress blog here. My short article on illustration will hopefully be lauched on Monday so look out for that!

DIY Collar Clips


Hello lovelies! I made some collar clips today from vintage clip on earrings and a simple chain connecting the two. I will be selling these for £5 each including p+p, so who wants one?! I have only made the three below so far, two of which have been sold already, but I will be making many more in the up and coming weeks so keep a look out!



I other news, I have just booked a ticket to Paris next week for 2 nights with my friend Charlotte. We have both been to Paris before and the last time I went I found the most amazing vintage shops so this time we are off on the hunt to find these shops again and find more! If any of you lovelies found any vintage shops/markets if you've been to Paris please feel free to leave a comment so I can check it out! So excited! :D

164. Fire In Your Eyes

Blazer:  Charity Shop
Top:  Topshop/Charity Shop
Disco Pants:  River Island
Shoes:  New Look
Hello lovelies! How is your bank holiday weekend going? This is what I'm wearing today as the weather is rather gloomy outside. I tell you what, I am getting pretty fed up with this weather! I wish it would just make it's mind up already! Rant over. Ha.
Anyway, today I am wearing my almighty comfy disco pants from River Island paired with my orange Topshop crop top for a pop of colour. I am also wearing my velvet blazer which I found in a charity shop in Farnham. I thought I had lost it for ages but luckily I found it this morning and I am so glad as I love it! Lastly I am wearing these cute lace-up wedge shoes from New Look to finish the look. What do you think? I don't usually wear outfits with my tummy out but I thought I would today :) Hope you like it!

Fantasy Photoshoot

Hello! As I mentioned in this post, the first part of mine and Paige's photoshoot, I said I would upload the images of the second part of the fun photoshoot we did. So here are the photos (I don't have as many as before but still thought I'd show them!)

Hope you like them! Sorry I haven't got any pictures of Paige in the shoot, we took the photos on her camera so I haven't got all of the photos but be sure to keep checking her blog here to see if she's posted them :)

163. We tumble and fall.

Everything:  New Look
Hello beauties! This is what I wore to work today, hence everything being from New Look! I bought this skirt in the Brighton store on Thursday so really wanted to wear that. At first I was unsure what top I could wear with it that was from New Look and I tried this top on as a whim, but luckily it went quite well with the skirt. I decided to clash prints with the camo jacket too just to try something new which I quite like. What do you think? Is it to taste? I finished with boots and knee high socks rather than tights just to make the outfit a bit more fun :)

Weekend Wants #1

Ahh there is so much I want to buy right now, and I've already spent loads! Does anyone else get the constant need to spend their money? It can't just be me that gets this niggling feeling, can it?
Anyway, I went to Brighton yesterday, as you all know, and I popped into Urban Outfitters for a browse and Oh My I want it all! From socks to blouses to dresses, ahh it is all just so beautiful!! So here are a few things I have pulled out to show you which are currently filling up my shopping basket on the UO website.

I am in love with this dress!! I just love everything about it, however unfortunately it's £85.00 - way out of my budget for a dress.
Find it here.

I'm in love with this gorgeous cut out playsuit! The colour, the print, the shape! Everything about it is just so pretty!
Find it here.

I saw this cardigan yesterday in Brighton and it is so pretty in person with the different coloured knit inbetween the grey and black. I don't think this image does it justice, it is really beautiful in person :)
Find it here.
I've wanted a top like this for ages! And for £16 it's not too bad, although I really want a white one which they don't seem to do. Does anyone know where I can get a white one?
Find it here.
Ohh don't you just love these sandals?! I really, really want these! Haha!
Find them here.
Damn these being £95.00 :(
Find them here.
There is so much more I want too but I won't bore you! What do you think?

162. Thirty Minute Love Affair

Blouse:  Primark
Belt:  Vintage
Skirt:  DIY/Self Made
Tights:  New Look
Boots:  New Look
Good afternoon! How are we all today? I got this blouse on Tuesday and I couldn't believe it was from Primark! It looks like something from Topshop, River Island or New Look. I really love the polka dot material clashing with the studds on the collar. Today I have paired it with my burgundy skirt and belt and polka dot tights to match the blouse and lastly black boots as it is rather gloomy weather today. I literally just finished taking my photos when it started raining!
What do you guys think of the blouse? Is it something you would wear? I have another outfit planned with this blouse already so expect to see more of it! :)

Image Update

Hello lovelies! Sorry it has been so long since I last posted! I have been mega busy catching up with friends and my boyfriend and making things etc. I am constantly taking photos on instagram showing what I have been up to so I thought I would show you all what I have been doing with myself! You can find me on Instagram by searching 'kirsti24'.

Today I went to the Royal Victoria Country Park, which is a short walk from my house, with my boyfriend as he finally got a day off work!! We decided to take my dog, Josh, down as he loves the sea (pics above). It was so lovely to spend time with my boyfriend, even if it was just a few hours :) Also, I am making a new dress as you can see! I really love this material and cannot wait to finish it and wear it out! What do you think of it so far?

I hope you've all had a good weekend and week so far! Oh, and I'm off to Brighton tomorrow with my lovely friend Gemma so I'm sure they'll be photos up of that in the next few days :)
