Everything Is Embarrassing



Top - Lovestruck* / Skirt - American Apparel / Dress - Topshop / Headband - Crown & Glory
Necklace - Urban Outfitters / Bracelet - Black Tied / Rings - The Bohemian Collective

On Friday my mum & sister came up to York for the day so Chloe & I decided to tag along for their visit. I'd only ever been to York once before & that was for my epic failure of a 21st birthday where my friends took me to the National Railway Museum because there was nothing else to do on a Sunday! So it was nice to come again when there was more exciting things going on. We went on a long walk around all the shops & festive fayre before chowing down on a huge meal at Wagamama. I taught Chloe how to use chopsticks & she actually managed to pick up her gyoza & individual grains of rice with them! After the meal she even had a little babyccino, so cute!

I wore this outfit but underneath a million different layers of course. I swear this seems like the coldest Winter ever, I used to walk to school everyday without tights at this time of year but now I freeze the instant I step outside. I was sent this gorgeous top by Lovestruck. Isn't the pearl collar detailing just the cutest? I paired it with this baby pink corduroy skirt from American Apparel. Its ridiculously short so I wore a Topshop skater dress underneath. I actually really like the kinda two layer skirt effect, it definitely kept me a lot warmer too. One of my favourite hair accessories is my cream Whole Lotta Rosie floral headband from Crown & Glory. I decided I also needed the black version after seeing how awesome it looked on Robyn. So jel of her long hair too! Thats the one of the bad things about bleaching your hair to death, as soon as it grows you have to get it cut again. I'm really tempted to order a wig from Lockshop. It'd be pretty cool to have long brown hair again after all this time. I wanted to dye my hair mint green but I'm having trouble figuring out which dyes to dilute to get the colour I want, a minty wig could be the easy way out. I'm a bit worried they'd look completely fake though!

    Sorry if you've answered this loads before or if even I have asked you before but what is your tattoo? If it's what I think it is then you're getting major cool points from me xo
