Rose tints my world, keeps me safe from my trouble and pain

Cardigan - vintage, blouse - charity shop/DIY, shorts - made by my mum, tights - Topshop.
As you can see, my victory roll game is totally on point today. Four/five day hair is definitely the best. Lazy hairstyles for days when I have to do things and be places.
This is one of my favourite outfits to wear lately, I think the three pieces just work really well together, especially as I know each one is completely unique (more on that later!). I wore this yesterday to go out for a meal with my college friends and we all crammed into a photo booth and then bought some amazingly kitsch/tacky/cutesy inital bracelets as jokey friendship bracelets. Then I wore it again today to work in the charity shop, where I bought all of my cutlery for uni, some padded hangers for my vintage things and some cute jar things for sugar and other stuff! How exciting.
I bought this blouse for £1.99 in a charity shop in a village in Yorkshire when I was visiting some family, and I was very pleased because I've been looking for some plain white blouses to embroider onto for ages. I had been planning to embroider some blue birds on one for a while (like years, possibly), so when I bought this I kind of did it without thinking. Although now I'm not that happy with it and I kind of wish I'd embroidered the lyrics to Doll Parts on it in pink or something.
I also added a little branch to the pocket! Although now I'm thinking that would be the perfect place for a slice of cake if I did embroider the Hole lyrics instead...


  1. The branch on the pocket is adorable! Your hair is so awesome too!
