feeling the red

backlit-brunette-with-spotty-headscarf

Never have I ever worn a headscarf before, but I’m quite enjoy I trying lots of different styles at the moment!  After faffing around and looking like an extra from Pirates of the Carribean for the first couple of attempts, I think I just about figured how is the best way to wrap and tie.

Following my clear out spree a few weeks back I realised that several items in my wardrobe weren’t coming out of hibernation very often, as they needed something fairly simple to be worn with. I’m pretty sure that white t-shirts are the ultimate basic, so it was as lovely surprise on Friday for my mum to have picked up this little cropped tee for me!  Often cropped tops fit more like bralets on my super-long-on-an-already-tall-person torso, however with the cutesy daisy edging, this one let’s only a little flash of belly peek through. I’ve a feeling it’ll be cropping up (apologies for the pun) often over spring and summer. 😉

I’ll still be wearing my sequined converse (a £15 bargain from Next in 2011) when I’m 22, I’m fairly sure!  Although I’m fairly sure that my feet have actually shrunk since I was 12, they’re still comfy, and who wouldn’t wear sequined shoes?

Totally jumping on the mini-bag bandwagon and borrowing my mum’s little purse on a string from Next!  Red, white and blue is one of my all time favourite combinations (patriotic or what?), yet it’s one that doesn’t feel quite right to wear until the sun is at least attempting to show itself.   We had a bright afternoon today so I felt the need to make the most of it!

Hope you’ve all had a great week!  The Kodaline concert I went to on Wednesday was amazzinnnggg: we were only a few feet from the stage so definitely felt the buzz.  Unfortunately no more gallivanting is planned for me this week so I shall probably be hitting the books and hopefully chatting with you guys. 😀

    I love this post! You look absolutely stunning! I know how you feel about having a long torso, I have to be so careful with mine because otherwise I can cross the line between sultry and slutty hahahah, so I hardly ever wear crop tops! This is lovely though and I’m sooo in love with your mum jeans oh my god! They’re not very in vogue over here in Italy but I’ve decided I don’t care and am going to grab a pair to bring back when I go home for a week soon! Loooove your blog as per! Xx

      Aw thank you Alice! That’s what I think haha – too much belly isn’t a classy flash at all! Go for it with the mom jeans:D
