Florals and DMs

The debut of my new favourite boots that I've been wanting for SO long! They are the Dr Marten Jadon boots and oh I'm in LOVE. I love chunky shoes and when I saw these I knew I had to have them, just took me a while. And surprisingly I haven't had to wear them in! They have been super comfortable from the start. My other DMs ruined my feet before they were comfy.
Dress - New Look (Currently in the sale!)

I love wearing a girly floral dress and pairing it with chunky shoes. I feel it adds an edgier look to the outfit. This zatchels saddle bag is my go to bag now, and it's perfect with the metallic colour which is 'on trend'. So a head of the times....ha.

I hope you like my outfit and especially my DMs.

Sophie!

Depths of Perception: Ocean Waves Competition.

 St Michaels Mount, Marazion, Cornwall

When I'm on the train back home to Cornwall I always know I'm home when I see St Michaels Mount. It's my favourite view. When the tide is out the cobbled causeway is visable so you are able to walk across to the Mount but when the tides in you can catch a boat. You are also able to go up to the top of the Castle, where there are lovely views of the sea and the main land! I think it's so beautiful and unique!

Cruise.co.uk are holding a competition to showcase beautiful photography including aspects of the ocean.

I hope you like my post or one day fancy coming to visit Cornwall and going to St Michaels Mount!

Sophie!

Another pinafore

Bowler hat - Primark
Pinafore - Depop

Oh the glasses are out, as I'm in Cornwall and currently have a car to drive I'm having to wear these bad boys as I can't see distances :( If you're in Cornwall on the roads stay as far from me as possible, I haven't driven in a couple of years so it's taken a little getting used to again and I've always been a terrible driver, slow and a little nervy!
I think this might be my favourite outfit at the minute! It's really easy to wear and matches my vagabonds. I don't know why I don't wear my bowler hat more often because I do really like it and adds a little extra to a look. Maybe I will from now.

Hope you like my outfit.

Sophie!

The British Tag

I'm not sure how I've missed the buzz about The British Tag maybe it was whilst I was on placement but the lovely Jade from Pint Size Pixie has nominated so I thought it would be fun to have a crack at it. Now lets go all Mary Poppins and say all of this in Dick Van Dykes crap attempt of a British accent.


01. How many cups of tea do you have a day & how many sugars? Tea is my favourite thing to drink so probably 4 possibly 5 depending of my much caffeine I need that day. And no sugars I'm sweet enough to quote my flatmate.

02. Favourite part of your roast? I don't eat mean but the vegetables, the potatoes, the yorkshires, the gravy....How can I choose!! I love cabbage and gravy but it's probably roast potatoes!

03. Favourite dunking biscuit? A custard cream or a caramel digestive hmm soooo yummy!

04. Favourite quintessentially British pastime? A trip to the seaside - beach with a picnic, swimming in the sea and the sun warming you up after.

05. Favourite word? Excellent. I say it all the time and it's just another response instead of okay, yes etc.

06. Cockney rhyme slang? Dog and bone - Phone. Apples and pears  - Stairs. Butchers hook - Look. That all do.

07. Favourite sweet? Strawberry laces or turkish delight. Can't beat a 3 for 99p pack of sweet and getting 3 lots of strawberry laces.

08. What would your pub be called? Oh I've never thought about this um the stags head and I would decorate it with fake stags heads, faux fur and tartan sofas with a big open fire place. In my head it looks good, but not sure if I'm explaining myself probably!

09. Number 1 British person? Colin Firth? Mr Darcy and Mark Darcy! 

10. Favourite shop/restaurant? Probably New Look because I spend all of my money in their.

11. What British song pops into your head? Spice Girls, they are the ultimate British girl group!

12. Marmite. Hate it, it's disgusting! No thank you.

Well there's my attempt at the British Tag! Hope you liked it. Better late than never hey!?!

Orange

Choker - Ebay
Collar Tips - Kukee

I've been seeing orange in all the shops at the moment and when my mum spotted this jumper I thought it would be perfect to brighten up my usual dark outfits. And it was only £14.99 minus student discount! I'm in love with this leather skirt, actually my mum spotted this as well and I'm wearing my mums blouse. So really my mum should take credit for this post! (Hi mum). Anyway back to the outfit, this leather skirt is a little pricey for this cheap skate but I think it will be worth it because it will definitely become a staple piece in my wardrobe and if I wear it as much as my other leather skirt I will definitely get my moneys worth!

Lazy Stripes

Blouse - Old
Jeans - New Look
Choker - Ebay

I'm outside!! Being back in Cornwall means I have a garden to take photos in! 
Whenever I tend to wear skinny jeans I always end up wearing a big baggy blouse over the top of them, I'm not quite sure why! Well I think it's to cover up my butt to be honest, ha. I bought these jeans in the New Look sale the other day for £10, they have a waxy leather look to them and are highwaisted, unfortunately I couldn't find a direct link for them. 
This is the start of my vagabonds appearing in pretty much every post from now! They are so comfortable, I shall be living in them this Winter! 

Sophie!
