Feeling Vintage

4 September 2015

This is the kind of thing that I will wear when I want to be comfy but still look like I've made half an effort with my outfit - comfy jeans, an oversized shirt and trainers. Thoughts?

Thrifted Gems

Ringer Tee - Blue Jays Merch
Skirt - Charity Shop
Creepers - Underground via TK Maxx
Sunglasses - Topshop 

One of my obsessions at the moment is a-line skirts - I just think that they look so effortless and stylish with basically any top. This one is originally from Hobbs, and I think I snapped it up for about £4 or £5. Bargs. I can't say that I've ever shopped in Hobbs before (bit too posh for me) but for a size 10, this skirt is absolutely massive! Do their sizes come up really big? Since taking these photos, I put it in the washing machine without realising it's label says 'professionally dry clean only', and it did shrink a lot. Even on 30 degrees, I didn't even know that was possible. Not that I'm complaining 'cos it kinda fits now.

A Thrifted Midi

Top - Miss Selfridge (Old)
Skirt - Charity Shop
Shoes - Converse
Sunglasses - Topshop
Belt - Primark

I have to say, this is definitely one of my most favourite outfits I've posted on the blog. I've wanted a floral midi skirt since the start of summer, but I couldn't really find one on the high street. Are midi skirts just not a thing this year? I dunno. Anyways, I found this beaut in a charity shop for £4 - bargain, I know. It's basically what I have been looking for, and I'm actually really looking forward to styling it up with a little black roll neck jumper in the Autumn, It had never crossed my mind to wear a midi skirt in the colder month, but I think with the darker colours in this one it could work quite well. I'm also enjoying the contrast between the skirt and the converse, I love mixing up different styles like that!


As you're reading this, I will probably be partying it up at Notting Hill Carnival - so excited. I'm especially looking forward to the Rinse Stage, because the lineup is looking particularly good. Anyone else heading over the the Carnival this weekend?

This week I bought myself a pair of Stan Smiths, and I love them. I got them from Schuh, and later discovered Footlocker are selling them for 40 quid. Ffs. And they have a pair with pink backs. I feel I got mugged off by Schuh a little bit, but oh well. So if you're planning on getting a pair, definitely get check out Footlocker first.

I also treated myself to the Mac Studio Finish Concealer. I rarely buy high end concealers and foundations anymore, but I'm having such issues with breakouts at the moment, I wanted to invest in a really good concealer. I have to say, it was definitely worth the money. Does anyone know if the Studio Fix foundation is any good?
