The girl in the pink scarf

Hey guys,

Hope you're all having a fabulous jubilee Tuesday; did many of you get an extra day off work?

I hope the rain hasn't washed out anyone's celebrations. It's been lashing down all day here. I feel so chilly; it couldn't be more different to the weather we had last week. I want to curl up under a blanket and watch wintery movies but I refuse as it's supposed to be summer!

I made myself get dressed, so I have an outfit share with you today...

I've pulled out an old favourite; a bat-wing floral dress from Next which has been worn on many an occasion over the last year and a half, but one I've yet to feature on here. I wear it regularly and anybody who knows me is probably sick of seeing it, but it's so comfy and I love it! I've dressed it with several accessories that haven't seen the light of day in a while.

This charm bracelet is another of my Abilu pieces. I was drawn to this particular one because of the vintage Pepsi can charm. Yes, really. It's unbelievably cute and quirky, with leaves, birds, feathers, stars, and lots of other cute charms hanging from it. It's finished with a signature Abilu piece; a fender medium guitar plectrum! I really don't wear it as often as it deserves. Today I've got a purple Barry M nail polish on my nails.

I decorated my other wrist with one solitary magenta pink beaded bracelet which has a little black heart attached to it. I find I don't wear jewellery on this wrist all that often these days; I guess I don't like covering up my tattoo (even though the pink stars are a complete mess and desperately need filling in). I'm also wearing a bright button-like pink stud in each ear.

I've had these pink ballet pumps for a year or two and still haven't worn them. They were tearing my feet up just walking across my bedroom floor to take the photos. I really must break them in because I love them with this dress.

The scarf is cashmere and luxuriously soft. My brother-in-law brought it back from Afghanistan for me as a gift a couple of years ago.

Do you have a piece of clothing you wear regularly and without shame?

  2. Super cute as always! I especially love all the pink you're wearing :)
    And that polish is amazing! I'll have to check this color out on occasion, I don't have anything like that in my collection.

    1. Thank you Nita :). And I was always the girl who always hated pink...!

      I don't usually wear purple nail polish- I always stayed in the red/coral/pink colour spectrum but I've been trying to branch out with different colours. This one is number 303 'bright purple' if that helps :)

  3. pink ballerinas and cashmere! love it! works well with your dress which is very pretty - i love comfy go to clothes - i am not nearly as glamourous! after work or whatever or wherever i change into pyjamas x (i am lusting after 1940's silk loungewear though, in cream and with a turban!)

    1. Thanks Maria! I always changed in to my pyjamas after work, too. I have to get dressed each day now for my sanity lol. Ooh your night wear sounds very glamourous!
