sunshine on my window, makes me happy, like i should be..

shorts: laura ashley
cardigan: h+m
bird print top: forever 21 // cat bag: matalan

My slumpy Sunday outfit from last weekend. I'd been to a friends' party and stayed, which meant that Lisa and I were able to spend the following day together, having much fun fabric shopping and building a house for her new kitten. I live quite far from my best friends so I don't get to see them often enough!

I managed to walk my shoes (not quite visible) to death. They were on their way out a long time ago if I'm honest. Does anyone else ever replace something and then keep the original thing anyway. I replaced these gold Primark flats about a year ago and the replacement ones have almost fallen apart as well.

 It wasn't really the weather for shorts, but I seem to be such a tights addict recently that the clouds don't stop me; with a pair of tights they're fine. I love these Laura Ashley ones, they seem to go with everything. Although they're on the alteration pile to take in the waist a little.                                


  1. You could always 'take in' the shorts by herring-boning in a piece of elastic. Saves having to take apart a garment. I first found out this gem on armpits (!) of ballet tutus, where several girls will wear one costume but it can gape, so it just pulls it in a bit. I've used it on trousers, so easy!

  4. That cat bag is amazing! It was lovely to see you at the weekend, can we do it again soon please?!
