See if anyone really knows.

Dress - Red Herring
Cardigan - Tu
Brogues - Urban Outfitters
Necklace - Head Full Of Feathers
I had a rare two days off together this week which meant I actually got a weekend for a change, so me and my good friend Claire took the chance to go on a wee adventure to take some photos for each other. She has amazing style and makes me jealous of everything she wears, make sure you check her blog out and have a look at the photos I took for her. I love cherry blossoms and brightly coloured flowers which is why this post is more photo heavy than normal. This park is normally mobbed on a day when the sun keeps peeking out but it was a friday afternoon meaning that most people were at work/school. It was good for us we could snap away without feeling awkward about being watched. 

Polka dots are another pattern I'm instantly drawn to along with hearts and stripes, and when the polka dot skater dresses started popping up everywhere it was only a matter of time before one ended up in my wardrobe. It does differ from my other skater dresses with its high neckline and little puff sleeves. I must try to remember to take my cardigan off in the future but it's easy to forgot when Scotland has yet to have any sort of heatwave.

I can't quite remember how I stumbled across Head Full Of Feathers but I'd say most likely through someone's blog. The site is filled with glittery accessories so it was only right that I sent a link of my favourite find to my boyfriend before Christmas. I have worn it many times already but this is the first I have got photos of it. I love wearing it to jazz up a something plain.

It was so lovely to see this garden bright and colourful again after many years of neglect. It was even completely closed off for a long time. There used to be a pond with Koi fish in it but it was still empty although it was clean so maybe it will be filled up again as there is a whole regeneration going on in this park.

Life still sounds like balloons

 Cardigan - Forever 21 
Top - Dorothy Perkins 
Skirt - New Look

These photos should perhaps be called 'I like looking down to my right'. When I first saw this top it had to come home with me, I knew if I left without it my size would sell out. I'm pretty sure the next time I went in all of the tops were gone. I'd say I made the right move there. I really love the print and collar but it creases so much, even the sleeves. Annoyingly that's always something you discover after you've worn it. It was a bad choice to wear to the cinema, which these photos were taken after as you can probably tell by the creases. The skirt was a bargain find in Belfast at a fiver. I just can say no to a five pound skirt! 

 Collar Clips - Ladybird Likes 
Brogues - Office 

I love Ladybird Likes and can't be on the Etsy page without adding something else to my wishlist. My very lovely friend Claire got me these adorable glitter heart collar clips for my birthday and she didn't even know how much I had wanted them! I was very surprised and I love them! You should really check out Zoe's (creator of Ladybird Likes) blog too.

I fight with the moon on occasion, yeah.


 Leather Jacket - Red Herring (very old) 
Shirt - River Island 
Top - diy
Jeans/Jeggings - M&S 
Necklace - Topshop (old) 
Bracelets - Accesorize/Electric Daisy

I thought I'd do a quick outfit post of what I wore to a gig at the Oran Mor the other night to see A Plastic Rose. I really liked this outfit but taking photos post gig and a train ride later isn't the best idea. The quality isn't too great as it was just my little Canon compact camera. 

I went off jeans for awhile but when found these jeggings I started to like them again and have bought a few pairs of jeans since mostly from M&S too! Good quality, comfy and around the £20 so ticks all my boxes. 
 I've always loved a checkered shirt and ones like this made from thicker material are perfect for layering at gigs for me. Easy for tying around my bag when it gets too hot but isn't all creased when you put it back on. 
You may or may not be aware of my love for The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, but when my t-shirt I bought wasn't fitting anymore I couldn't face not wearing it so I cut the design out of the t-shirt and ironed it on to a cheap sleeves top. I really want to this with other band tees I have that I don't wear due to the fit. They always come is such odd shapes!
