Clashing prints for Spring!

Floral botanical shirt walk trendy

Spring is here, Spring is here!! At last the sun is shining, and London looks even prettier when it does. As you all know I am trying to re style old items I own to create new looks. Over the weekend I got rid of about a quater of my wardrobe due to it not fitting and just needing a fresh start. I may not be able to re purchase new things straight away but I want to post on here how I am mixing up things I already own with new, well priced items. 

This outfit was something I threw together and just improvised with what I had. The floral shirt is new from Walktrendy and on such a lovely Spring day it suited my mood quite well! I paired it with my new sock shop tights in a bright berry colour, skirt that i've had for many years now and a vintage jacket. As the skirt and shoes are both black is keeps the look from looking too garish and means the clashing of prints isn't offensive to the eye. And lastly, yes I do have pigtails but it's because they are cute and keeps me cool on warmer days.

Wish list for a happy home

urban outfitters home, bhs, sass and belle
1, Rug - Urban Outfitters. 2, Shelving Unit - Urban Outfitters. 3. Large frame - Sass and Belle. 4, Pineapple frame - Urban Outfitters. 5, Stand up lamp - BHS.

I know I have only recently done a wish list but as I am lacking money right now it helps me to focus on the things I like and want to save up for. This is probably something I'll be posting more of in the next few months while i'm saving lots. There is one benefit to online shopping however, and browsing is keeping up to date with recent discounts (I do love a bargain). I usually search for good discounts on VoucherBin.co.uk as you search using categories, so when i'm looking at home furnishings and decor it helps narrow them down. The lamp (number 5) is from BHS and they currently have a lighting discount code to use, so thought i'd add to my wish list as we need a new one for the flat. It's exciting to put together decor ideas on my Pinterest as well for Chris and I to use as inspiration. Now all I need is the bank balance to buy it all.

Being a typical tourist in London.

pastel outfit in london, london tourist

Last weekend I got to be a typical tourist around London. So what better than to share the day out I had with Becky Bedbug, than on here. We decided to keep the day as free and cheap as we could, meaning the V&A seemed like a great option. Both of us hadn't been in ages so we couldn't wait to have a look around as well as have lunch at their cafe, which has the most delicious food!

I wore an outfit that was perfect for lots of walking! These Adidas trainers are my favourite and I love wearing pastel colours with them. I went with an easy denim skirt and jumper combo with my cute Joules raincoat, as we can never rely on British weather!
