- Hey guys! This is what I wore on Wednesday, well, minus the hat, but I would have worn it had I owed before Wednesday. I've wanted a boater hat for a while now ever since I tried one on in New Look as a joke, then quite liked it. The problem with them is that they can make you look like a school girl, especially the ones with black around them. I can't take that risk as I'm 5"1 and already look very young. But as this one was floral I got it, and for £4 it was worth it!
As you can see the kimono jacket is DIY. I had been looking for one for ages (ever since they came out) but none of my local shops had any, not even Topshop! But they've been all over the internet, but I don't like internet shopping. Anyway, in the end I decided to make one, and Mum found some lovely Purpley/pink burnout material in the market. One day I got home from staying at someones and she'd made it for me! Good thing she did, because she said I wouldn't have been able to work with the material. The only thing I'm debating on it is the lapels. If they're taken off, it will just be straight down the front. What do you guys think?
The necklace was about £4 in the New Look sale, and the ring is an 18th Birthday present from Mum. It's gonna be a family air loom type thing starting with me! :)
This outfit is very different to the things I've been wearing recently, there's a lot more colour in it, but that's nice :) It's also very girly and summery. Just wish the weather would match up!
- It's been horrible here in Essex these past few days. For the last couple of weeks it's been really cold, but today and yesterday it just chucked it down with rain. It's really miserable :( It's especially draining because I've been feeling pretty gloomy these last few weeks as I've had no time to myself to relax; everything has been so rushed! I have one double deadline coming up on Monday, but I've also got the trouble of sorting out a sketchbook my teacher (that one that changed my exhibition) lost from last semester, and she hasn't given me a mark for it. She's trying to pin the blame on me taking it to uni interviews, but I've never been going to uni. Hopefully it'll all be over next week!
