I can’t even put into words how lovely it feels to settle down with my laptop and some music, and just let the words spill onto a screen after the strangely busy day I’ve had.
Ended up running errands all day with Mamabear and the sister just so I could hitch a lift to the bank! Oh well, I did manage to pick up some books, replace my old edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that went missing, pay rent, and buy some underwear.
Floral culottes, Topshop;
Wooden ‘Ampersand’ necklace, c/o Maria Allen Jewellery.)
I wore this today to run the above errands, and popped a pair of Hello Kitty-printed cycling shorts on underneath too! I really adore H&M basic tops from their Divided range, the fit is absolutely perfect for my tastes and are ridiculously well priced. Throughout the day, I’ve been playing around with how this shirt is tucked in too, I can’t decide if it looks nicer completely tucked in, tucked in at the front or not at all… Oh wells, I’m home and in my pyjama bottoms now!
Since I published my post on Tuesday, I feel like I’ve been inundated with emails and comments about the necklace I wore. Fear not girls, I wouldn’t just bypass the piece completely! I had just planned to share a post of its’ own.
This wooden Ampersand necklace from Maria Allen Jewellery is my absolute favourite piece at the moment. It’s a beautiful, hand-crafted laser-cut wood necklace. For Maria’s first post-graduate collection, I am seriously impressed and am saving speedily for a Wooden Teapot Brooch as well as the Golden Feather bracelet. I’m sure you can see from the photos why this is my new favourite: the Ampersand is just so well made, and I love the two-tone wood.
I’m just about to go and finish writing up my latest Ways to Wear post. I think I’ll schedule it to post for tomorrow, as I’ll be at work on Friday I believe, and then in London on Saturday for the day. Think I shall spend the rest of my evening alternating between reading one of my new books, reblogging endlessly on Tumblr again (can someone teach me how to use the queue function?!), and sipping cups of coffee. Perfecto.
