friday favourites 003

1 - velvet sandals, £58 Topshop

2 - hedgehog print jumper, £35 River Island

1 - there is something about velvet which, every year, makes me think of wrapping up warm for winter as the days get shorter..i'm don't think i have a favourite season; whilst i love to sit on the beach and read a book, or to work on my suntan in the garden, i equally like those crisp and frosty wintery days, when you can see your breath in front of you, and wrapping up warm in knitted layers! velvet also makes me think of parties - especially birthday parties when i was of primary school age, and used to have a "party dress" (usually velvet, probably bought by my nan, with some sequins or something!)..

hence why i like these sandals so much, regardless of the fact that they break all of my usual shoe rules - i don't tend to favour chunky heels, i'm not a huge fan of peep toes,.and yet i am mentally making room for a shoebox on top of my already over-flowing stack for these topshop sandals!

2 - continuing the winter wishlist theme, i really love the look of this hedgehog print jumper ( i like a lot of the chelsea girl range at river island at the moment!) i don't often wear jumpers, i find that i get too warm in them, and usually prefer to throw on a cardigan over an outfit, but i really like the print on this..could be one for the xmas list...


  1. Ohhh love those shoes. I'm a massive velvet fan, i have about 3 dresses and a skirt in velvet x

  2. Really love the jumper! Get it!!

  3. Ooh prettiness! See I'm always cold, so a good ol jumoer would be great for me - in the winter I actually wear them under my chunky cardigans, cosy! :)

  4. OK I have added both of these to my birthday list, they are lovely :)

  5. You have such good taste in jumpers, this is the same one I featured over on my Heart list :D Sorry for not commenting for so long and I'll respond to your letter asap. xxx

  6. Hahaa someone is very much looking forward to the snowy season! :P Gotta admit, I'm with you on the velvet front, can't wait to pull out my maroon velvet dress :) Lovely picks! ♥

  7. I adore velvet. It is all I seem to wear over Christmas! Treated myself to a lovely velvet skirt off ebay that I am dying to wear! Just a bit too short without tights so have to wait till it gets colder :(

  8. I have seen that gorgeous jumper a few times and it looks so perfect for winter x

  9. I've also seen that jumper before and I love it too!
