Cape: H&M//Breton top: Monki//Jeans: Topshop//Flats: c/o Le Bunny Bleu//Socks: River Island//Rings: RubyRaeLove and vintage

Didn't really mean to flash my midriff in these photos (some wine had been consumed before they were taken).

By the way I am wearing some pop socks here, I haven't randomly had two tattoos done in the past 48 hours. I rather like how it looks, though I don't think I could commit to a tattoo on my foot.

After singing the praises of the Meadham Kirchhoff nail wraps, I bought these ones (also by Nail Rock), only to find a couple of them starting to peel off after a few hours (and nothing more strenuous than washing my hands once or twice). I've had to use three wraps on one nail as the first two wouldn't stick. So I'll go back to being unimpressed by them I'm afraid.

LDNlunch tomorrow- see you there (or be square)

  1. Those socks are clever and the nail designs are amazing, shame they don't last long though :( Great outfit and love that top and the coat especially.

  4. Oh, I love those little socks! I'm the kind of idiot who would so commit to the tattoo after wearing the socks once! This cape is gorgeous too and I'm always a fan of a stripey top, actually love everything about this outfit, esp the shoes. How good is Monki?? I bought a few dresses before my ban and love the kind of sailor theme they have going on.
    That's crap about the nail wraps as they look so cool!
    Sorry I have totally rambled on here!
    p.s. wine, bread and cheese are my faveourite thing at the moment, so worth the bloat I sport for the rest of the night! (not that you even do though!) x

  11. Shame the nail wraps are coming off, I love the pattern on them!!
    I thought you actually had tattoos on your feet but was wondering why your feet were so shiny haha xxx

  12. I genuinely thought you got the tattoos - I remember you saying you were interested in them before! I love your top, I had a similar nautical one from H&M as well but mine had red sequins on it as well. It's a shame about the nail wraps, they look like they're so much effort to put on, and they look so good on that it's a shame they didn't wear as well as last time. xxx

  14. Was going to wonder about the tattoos and why I hadn't clocked them before now :-) For the record I think they'd suit you if they were real! Brilliant top!

  27. Oh Rachel...you look divine as always! I love the classic nautical look..I can't wait to start wearing more things like this as the weather warms up a bit. Those socks are the loveliest thing. They really do look like tattoos....beautiful ones...and with the shoes, even more gorgeous! The nail wraps are so pretty, but based on what you said, I know for a fact they would never stay on my nails...nothing ever does! Happy weekend! xx Marisa
