i'm just a notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in a song..

dress: debenhams
cardigan: topshop
heels : Spartoo
Sometimes I find it quite fun to put an outfit together, starting from something small. These heart earrings arrived in the post to me a couple of days with a Valentine's card from someone lovely and I figured I should enter into the spirit of things and wear them on the day itself. I was thinking about pink and things and realised I hadn't yet worn this dress, spotted by my little sis when we went for a wander around the sales last month. I sort of like it when you'd almost forgotten about something new, it's like shopping without the shopping. Which is a good thing, as I've decided to give up spending for Lent. (Not that I am in any way religious, but it's become something of a post-pancake tradition).

So the next thing I needed were some suitable shoes. Well, these Tea and Cakes heels, to be precise - I'm not sure if they are technically shoes or boots, but I love them and definitely don't wear them enough. I've been thinking quite a bit about things I don't wear enough as I've been challenged by a twitter friend to do a clothing challenge - where I'd pick [xx] number of items and remix them for a month. Sort of like having a capsule wardrobe, I suppose. When I get back from London next week I think I'm going to give it a go.

Happy Valentine's to everyone, hope you have a lovely day however you spend it..!


  1. Those heels are super cute, I love them. When I can finally spend again I'm definitely gonna pick up an Irregular Choice pair.

  3. Ahhh, really struck by that dress- you look very pretty! BUT, where are the earrings you mention?? I cannee see them!x (and who is someone lovely!?!?!)x

  4. Love the title of this post for one thing! :D There's nothing better than forgetting about something new and rediscovering it! Amazing shoes as per! xxx

  5. I love your dress, and those shoes are fab. Good outfit! And, yes, you should recover your mannequin - very easy to do, and fun as well. x
