SLOW LIFE




So back to the standard Black / White uniform dress code. I saw these shorts on Lauren's blog (here) and immediately fell in love with them so when I had to exchange a few things (all the crap I ordered in the sale) I was thrilled Westfields had them in my size !.  The shirt is also new in from Topshop as surprisingly in my 350 shirt collection I didn't actually own a plain white long sleeved one, Oh and winter boots in july pretty much sums up the current english weather.

Also this is my poor mans D.I.Y collar tips, I think collar details are beautiful, I never wear necklaces so sometimes a shirt on it's own does look a bit drab! but there is no way in hell I'm paying £12 on asos for some metal clips that I know i'll probably come home from a night out with only one left, so the perfect alternative - ugly unwanted earrings !. I've had my ears pierced since i was 7 and probably wore earrings twice, yet my nan is always handing me down pairs and I hoarded all sorts of pairs from claires accessories with my pocket money when i was like 12, so all these pairs that have been untouched for about 6 years are now being sorted into what could make cute collar tips and the bin.
