Mermaid parties beneath the sea

I bought this top a few weeks ago in River Island (a place I pretty much never shop in because neon offends me) after trying for months to find something pretty to spend my £25 gift voucher on. I think I have succeeded as this top is very pretty!
I really love the mermaid and shell print on this top, I actually bought this in a size 10 as the print placement (textiles word alert) was much nicer than on any of the size 8s. Also, the pretty pinks, blues, greens and purples in the pattern will go nicely with almost any colour!
I actually wore this outfit to college last week, despite its sheerness and open back (slut pride forever guys!~). I obviously had to wear my (fake) pearls, and the muted green headscarf is a nice break from my ~signature~ colour palette patterned one, which you all must be getting so sick of! I have been finding it quite hard to pair this top with anything other than these trousers though, which I love the colour of but I just hate the feeling of wearing them all day!

Top - River Island, trousers - H&M, necklace - gift, headscarf - vintage.
I just realised most of the stuff I'm wearing is from the hight street! That feels so strange, I never really think about it but I simply don't really shop there any more.
The back. Look how bad my roots are! I will be paying a trip to the hair dye fairy soon (hopefully).
I listed some new pieces in my shop last night, including the knitted collars from my giveaway post!
Also, I'm going to start selling lots of my clothes, jewellery & shoes on ebay soon (true to my word in my last post!), but I was wondering if maybe I should put some up to sell here first? Let me know in the comments if you'd be interested!
PS. I couldn't resist the Flight of the Conchords reference in the post title.


  1. that top is wonderful, i love the print x

  2. Had my eye on this top for a while,looks gorgeous! :) x

  3. The top is beautiful! I never think to shop in River Island as the window display usually hurts my eyes a bit, but I think I'll have to go in and pick the top up! I just had a look at your shop too, it's wonderful! Roll on pay day :)

    1. Aww, thank you for taking a look at my little shop! And, I know what you mean, I normally have to avert my eyes when walking past their window displays!

  4. wow that shirt is amazing and I love the colour you play it up with. I'm always too self-concious to wear scarfs & bows in my're making me want to, though. Also, first time on your blog and I must say, I'm in love! xx

  5. this shirt is simply adorable! :) and the way you combined it with these pants is so lovely, i'd like to rip that outfit right off of you and wear it myself. ;) (well, it probably wouldn't fit me, since you're too slender, but anyway, a girl can dream, right ;))

    the scarf in your hair look about 1920 - so cool! can't wait to see what you will wear next. ;)

  6. I love love love this top!!!
