Genie.

 Hello everyone. I would apologize for my absence but that would be boring and lets face it no one likes a groveler. So lets dive straight in eh?

I've been pretty busy these past few days stripping wall paper, going on a night out without any ID (I am 18 FYI), getting addicted to the Logosquiz app and being utterly glued to my telly thanks to the Olympics. Anyone see the mens 100 meter sprint? Cannot tell you how tense my household was, haha.

 Top: Very Old 
Shorts: Newlook
Belt: Vintage
Vest: Mothers

I had Ross stay over for a few days which was lovely as he's gone and got himself a full time job starting next week or so, meaning I wont be able to see him much before we both head off to that place called university. Don't get me wrong I'm really looking forward to venturing off into the big wide world I just hope we manage to see each other along the way.


Right. Clothes. Can we take a moment to appreciate how amazing this vest/waistcoat is? This wonderful thing was once my mum's and now has pride of place in my wardrobe. I've had it for a while and used to throw it over everything yet for some unknown reason it's gotten buried underneath my ever expanding clothes collection. So I thought it was high time I gave this guy some attention. It makes me feel a little like a genie.
 

I paired the vest with a floral top that I've had for literally years, hence the sliver of belly, and I really like the way these two items go together. The vest just makes a rather cute but boring outfit all the more interesting.

 I also decided to finally jump on the bring-back-side-ponys band wagon driven by Chloe. I didn't initially think it would work with my dreads but I reckon it turned out pretty good despite having to tuck in a few lumps and bumps, haha. 


That's it from me I reckon. Just a big thank you to everyone who reads, comments and follows this little blog of mine, it really makes my day.


Here you go:


Because I absolutely love this song.

  6. :O I love the vest! The detail is incredible. It would be neat to see it up close. And I know how tough University can be -__- I just graduated (finally!) and it's so wonderful actually having free time again.

    Good luck! ;P
