A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

19 | Another Year Older & Absolutely None The Wiser

For 2 more hours I can say IT’S MA BIRTHDAY so I’m gonna milk it whilst I can. 19 (going on 90) today!  As birthdays go I’ve had a pretty low key one because A) it’s a random Tuesday and B) I have a v. v. busy November anyway.  I’ve had a nice evening with the fam, my dad’s disbelievingly said “NINEteen, bloody hell” over and over, and I’ve received some lovely presents (including the best boots EVER that I…

maxi dress comfort

Teen wearing summer off the shoulder maxi dres

Evenin’ folks.  How’s your weekend been?  Mine’s passed all too quickly but involved afternoon tea for brunch and that’s never a bad thing.  Rather than throw more Majorca pics your way (that would just make me sad, I want to go back so much), here’s a thoroughly more relatable backdrop this time.  In the form of a very green, very leafy park.  I can guarantee this ones 100% English – complete with downpours and all.  My maxi dress and sandals…

sparkly | black and gold sparkly dress

I like to think I’m pretty pro at finding style steals.  Case in point – this one was reduced to a fiver.  It’s nice to splurge and treat yourself sometimes and feel fancy, but style steals and vintage finds and wardrobe remixes have their place too.  God that sounds like I think I’m writing a fashion column or something, apologies. 9 times out of 10 my ‘wardrobe remixes’ involve throwing outfits together 5 minutes before rushing out the door –…

fading light

Teen photographed in doorway wearing cream playsuit

Not exactly what you’d expect to find in a charity shop!  This Miss Selfridge beauty was hidden amongst a load of fleeces and curtain print dresses and the like.  Gotta be prepared for a good rummage to find the best stuff.  £4 for a chiffony playsuit though, couldn’t pass that one up!  Much as I love actual vintage stuff, most charity shop stock (round these parts, anyway) is far from it.  I’d hazard a guess this isn’t a pensioner’s donation,…

loafing around

Do you have those few pieces in your wardrobe that no matter how many times they’re worn, over how many years, you never tire of them?  I’ve had this dress since I think 2010, and I must say 12 year old Lily had very good taste.  It’s on the short side (and flimsy too) but I love the comfy loose floppy drapey swingy style.  And this particular shade of blue is ‘my’ blue haha, seems to suit me!  ‘Tis kind…

comfy cosy casual

Cosy comfy outfit definitely needed!  Super easy one with the most basic of leggings and a shirt borrowed from my Mum.  No matter how many clothes I own, someone else’s wardrobe always seems to have just what I fancy.  My little (not so little) brother is just about bigger than me now, so his clothes are for raiding now too!  Everyone’s welcome to whatever they’d like of mine. 😛 cardigan: Miss Selfridge | shirt and leggings: New Look | boots:…
