outfit 1

Top : H&M 
Skirt : Thrifted
Shoes : Newlook
Belt : Hand-made by my brother.
So i have been wearing this top basically everyday since i bought it on monday, its the first thing i have ever bought from H&M full priced it has safety pins printed on it, its one of  the images (no.9) from the 10 things i love  its such a light weight fabric and it has these really cute buttons all up the back, its perfect for the summer. I am pretty sure this skirt belonged to an old lady ha! i picked it up for 20p in a little charity shop in the Cotswolds about a year ago it is perfect for days when i feel like Chunk from the goonies, it has an elastic waist so it is perfect.
 Today i plucked up the courage to head into the gym at the end of my road to find out about joining, i am terrified of anything to do with exercise, but i think i may join not too sure, it is rather pricey ...i may have to think about it.
 But the detox is going ok so far, i made a greek salad for lunch followed by some almonds, cherries and cranberries as a snack. Give me a week and i will be on the chocolate and pepsi max. I dashed out this morning and treat myself to a new tripod, i was ridiculously excited about it. It was rather pricey, but its really worth it, perfect for outfit posts. I hope everyone enjoys my first ever outfit post.

  2. You dress so beautifully. It takes a lot of confidence to put two different prints together in an outfit. Your my little style icon and you are such a bonnie lass. I would love to go shopping with you one day if I ever get to meet you.

    p.s. can't believe your brother made that belt....its so awesome and I'm jealous and I want one NOW!!!!
