50s Heels

There are those items in your wardrobe that are simply too beautiful to wear on a daily basis, collected as though they are your very own pieces of art, part of a collection that you cherish. For me there are those certain pairs of shoes (and accessories) that fit under the 'piece of art' category, that you own and display with pride. 

These heels from Babycham are a beautifully crafted pair of shoes that make you feel as though you have stepped back in time, and re-invented yourself into a 50s siren-think Sandy from Grease ("pre-transformation").  They are their very own pieces of art, that had me mesmerised as soon as I lifted the lid off of the shoe box. The sky blue lace is something that immediately drew me to them and as a (self-proclaimed) lover of pastels I couldn't help but dream up all the pastel-esque outfits, I could pair them with.  If you too want to channel your very own 50s siren, or want to drool over their (too beautiful for words) pairs of shoes, then definitely take a look at their website here

Daisy Print Flares

A casual look gracing the blog today, taken from last Saturday whilst I was out exploring the city and doing a spot of shopping. As the day was fairly relaxed I decided to pair my (much-loved) flared trousers with this lilac lace insert top (from ark) and my metallic jacket, which I practically have been living in as of late.  We decided to take the photos just outside St James park-pre-marathon! I have to admit it was exciting to see all the prep they were doing for the day, and seeing them put the final touches in place.

Also I have just done an interview with the lovely people over at Ark, discussing everything from blogging, things that inspire me, to my favourite ever music video. Be sure to check it out here!

Glitter Sunglasses

Lately this has been one of my go-to outfits, as I have been lovin' this combination of pink and stripes. Especially with the weather being on the warmer side as of late, this outfit has acted as the perfect look for spring. With pink and stripes on the agenda, I decided to pair the outfit with my much-loved pom pom earrings and faux-fur drawstring bag-a 'must-have' accessory for a day of exploring. As well as these bargain sunglasses which I picked up for £2 in Primark, a few weeks ago. I just love how they add a 60s touch to the look with their round shape and their pink glitter frames.
