Denim jacket, top and skirt: Monki (...)//Hat: Topshop//Flats: Missguided//Bag: vintage//Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

So when we had five minutes of sunshine at the weekend, this is what I wore (though I got cold around 4pm and put tights on). My mum and I went to a vintage swap shop, though we both bought things that weren't in the swap- somehow my mum found a 1930's beaded hand made jacket. Which I am sure everyone will love in deepest most rural France <3

On other news, I've got a cold. I think this is a sign of how crap the weather has been, I don't usually get colds in May. And typically, D has gone on holiday so I only have the cat to nurse me. Let me know if you want to be my night/day nurse.

  1. one of my favorite of yours, the prints surprisingly works together, love love! You look so pretty. I hope you get well soon! I had cold too few days ago in summer. Weird.

  3. I love this outfit - the shirt especially.
    The weather has been abysmal! You'd never guess it was May. I suppose I should be grateful though, as it means one less distraction from revision xoxo

  6. I've got a horrid cold at the moment too. It seems unjust in May. Sad I missed the five minutes of sunshine too. Maybe it will come back one day and we shall have a glorious summer?

    And, yes, I did try and buy an Elvis bust. I was v sad when I was outbid because he was bat shit crazy/AWESOME. He would have been the best blog mascot ever. x
