lemon knitted top: vintage
flower skater skirt: c/o rebel rebel
t-bar geek shoes: topshop
oversized white bag: la moda

you have guessed from my twitter rants about the claims of 'one coat' paint (..IT STILL NEEDS TWO COATS DAMMIT) I'm still renovating my house. 

it's not all decorating dramas though because this little daisy skater skirt from rebel rebel made it's way through my postbox and brightened my day! I love bold prints and this is such a dinky little number and quite the bargain at £15! in fact their entire range is seriously affordable.. I'm eyeing up some of their new arrivals with intent (hello £8 tartan pencil skirt!) I like having little skirts to layer up with jumpers and tights when the weather gets a bit nippy; as much as I don't want the summer to end LFW chatter has reminded me autumn is a-comin' yikes!

surprisingly I had no idea what to wear it with (despite a wardrobe bursting at the seams, yes it seems I've turned into a complete girl this week!) so I went on a huge rummage and found this vintage knitted top under a pile of cushion covers..  hurrah outfit sorted! 

I'm still surgically attached to my topshop flats.. comfortable with a hint of nerd = love.

with all this decorating malarkey I'm overdue a big bloglovin' catch up.. I hope you're all having a good week?
