Denim collars and cream


// Hand-made jumper / Vintage // Denim shirt / Vintage // Jeans / Primark // Boots / Topshop //

Yesterday was a day for jeans and jumpers, I don't often where high neck things just because of my bust and chubby face, but today I decided to throw caution to the wind and this is the comfiest of comfy. I had a very important business meeting, which I can't really discuss to much in detail but exciting things are on its way for RRL, enough about that. On my way home me and my sister took a little detour to primark where I picked up my first ever pair of shorts as an adult,  I shall share them with you soon, I then proceeded to be my clumsy self tripped over my front doorstep and head-butted (more side of my face) into my solid wood front door, I now have a massive bruise below my right eye...I am a fool!
I don't often wear jumpers and collars that poke over the top, but i am loving the cute little look. I shouldn't really be wearing jumpers and jeans in June but you have to love the British weather. I  cut my fringe on a whim, my fringe grows so quickly that one week its a full fringe the next minute its a side fringe but for the moment I like how I have cut it, its looking a little flat in these picture i think for the rest of the week i shall be perfecting my top knot.

  3. Looks lovely with the denim collar poking out! I tend not to wear high necks either because of my chest, makes me feel like a Cluedo piece! I'm getting a fringe cut in tonight I think, my hair grows super fast so it's probably a bad idea but it'll look nice for the first couple of weeks! :) X

  9. I cut my fringe too, much to my hairdressers dismay! :D I wore a jumper/collar and jeans today as well, this rainy weather just makes me want to reach for something comfortable, you manage to look comfy and very stylish! Hope that eye heals too, sounds ouch!

    The big plans are getting me excited, hope you speak of them soon. :)
