I’ve realised I’ve been stockpiling new summer clothes for those four weeks in the UK (tops) we’re actually able to wear them. Something I’ve now acquired three of (three!) is gypsy tops. I’ve clearly had some sort of lack of shoulder exposure crisis in my subconscious.
Along with lovely loose-fitting and a little bit provocative tops for the hot weather that never comes, I’ve also got a new bag to show you today and it’s very special indeed (with far better cost per use). It beautifully marries my love of red accessories with my love of books. (For those of you who don’t know, my day job is in book publishing – and you don’t work in publishing for the money!)
A red book bag needs matching shoes, lipstick, nails and hair flower for the perfect warm weather ensemble. Which in this case was for a picnic in the park.
Jeans: ASOS (Rivington – all available colours)
Sandals: Swedish Hasbeens (via ASOS – currently on sale!)
Bag: Disaster Designs (via Modcloth)
Hair flower: Retro Vixens
This post reminded me how time-consuming it is to take your own blog photos and not have a helpful boyfriend snapping away for you. Not to mention much less scenic. First world problems. Thankfully this situation will be rectified as we’re off for a long weekend by the sea. The very cold, rainy sea – this is the UK, after all, and the forecast is as reliable as ever!
