For now we are young, let us lay in the sun

Can't believe it's been nearly two weeks since my last post! I've been so busy. I've been all over the country visiting friends, spending far too much money and drinking too much strawberry schnapps and sailor jerrys! Had such an amazing time in St Albans, Bude and Cardiff with my amazing friends. I'm really going to miss them when they all go back - and four of my best mates are in Canada/America! So jealous obviously.

I bought this skirt from SpanktVintage on the ASOS Marketplace. I love suede and this a-line shape is something which I think flatters my pear shape. Add to that the fact it's scalloped and there was no way I couldn't click 'add to cart'! I bought another couple of shirts from them too which you'll no doubt see on here shortly. I hadn't realised but the gorgeous El Chetcuti models for Spankt, she was the main reason I bought the items as they looked so good on her! She's just made the (right!) move from Tumblr to Blogger so make sure you take a look at her posts featuring outfits and her photography and styling! 

This shirt is another vintage piece which is absolutely stunning quality. It's a beautiful sheer material and I wish I'd photographed the bottom of it because it has the most gorgeous detail. It's got a french label on it and I don't know what it is but as soon as I spy that french label in something I'm eyeing up I immediately think; 'amazing quality and timeless' and have to buy it. Just look at the sleeves! I'm a little bit besotted. 

Finally, I love my new shoes! I found them in the ASOS outlet (my ASOS shipping subscription gets such a battering!) for £25 instead of £55 and I really love the dalmatian print on them! I'd love to find a dalmatian print item of clothing, either a skirt or a shirt I think, ready for autumn/winter. Another print I adore is 'whale shark' skin. It just looks like nothing I've seen before! Although I can't see that being an easily accessible print anytime soon..! 

When I said finally, I was wrong. I could do with some help! I'm trying to find some cheap-ish sheer black shirts in an oversized fit with a collar. I also was normal sleeves, not batwing. I'm willing to pay around £20 but I need two or three for some DIYs I want to do. If you know anywhere that I can find these please let me know! :) Thank you! Hope you've enjoyed your weekend - HOW much hype was there about the 'hurricane' hitting England? I think the most damage it caused was this to my hair!

  20. Hey Daisy!
    Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you. The shoes I got at the start of summer, but unfortunately I don't think they have them anymore!

    The style is called 'kosy' though, and they have some others styles, mostly boring autumnal shades though.

    Oh and I LOVE the shoes you are wearing, nothing like a bit of leopard print eh?;)
