what I wore today: parka and bows

I can't seem to shake my current love of stripes! I picked up this dress in primark last summer and it's one of my most worn dresses because it's so comfortable and easy to wear (nothing beats a good ol' jersey fabric in my book!)

I was so excited when my parka from the lovely people at mee mee arrived this week, it fits like a dream! I've been harbouring a crush on two tone jackets and have been umm-ing and ahh-ing about getting one for months! I swiftly bookmarked their website as it has a great selection of vintage items too (hurrah!) perfect for a high street/vintage kinda girl.

my latest favourite purchase is my topshop rucksack! my bank balance heaved a sigh of relief as I was able to buy  it with some gift vouchers I was given at christmas.. phew thanks mom! I'm slightly addicted to rucksacks; I adore the casual look and they suit me perfectly (..I can fill them up with all my clutter aha!)

  11. Love the hair bow! Just looked to see where you got it and it's a gift damit! Looks lovely xx


  12. Very much a fan of the parka and the headband. I'm always a sucker for scarf like headbands as scarves have such a hard time staying on my head.
