Who wouldn't want a t-shirt with a spaceman on it I ask you?!

Wore this to uni this morning and a hair appointment this afternoon. Anyone else get that massive sense of dread just before you get your hair cut? You know that, "Oh god am I going to have to shave my head and become a recluse?" kind of dread? Yeah - me too. Luckily, I didn't come out wanting to cry this time. For anyone who lives in Liverpool I highly recommend the hairdresser shop Voodoo (http://www.voodou.co.uk/) - they actually listen to what YOU want, which in my experience is a quality that is difficult to find in a hairdresser.

Crop tops. You've gotta love them, bringing the 1990's back with a vengence. I'm nearly 100% sure that anybody who was born in that era has already worn them back in their "Spice Girls phase". I was sporty, naturally. So the big question is how do you make them wearable during the day without looking like someone who's forgotten to get changed in the morning?? 

Two things:
  1. Make sure to wear some form of high waisted trousers/skirt - anything that covers your belly button will do. No one wants to see that during the day.
  2. It would be wise to wear something over the top of your crop top - as if you are like me and live in an abysmally cold country - that breeze across your mid-drift is not always pleasant.

I have been lusting after the perfect pinafore for a while now and had tried this black one on in Topshop on various occasions, each time deaming it too expensive for my student loan to handle. Fortunately along came Christmas and a Topshop voucher from my lovely auntie - she knows me well.......needless to say I didn't have to think about what I wanted to spend it on for long.....say hello to my 8 year old self reincarnated.

After what felt like God's will in the form of a snowstorm the snow almost immediately melted overnight. Thank god. Notice that I'm wearing green again, can't help it. These polka dot jeans were a bargain steal from my favourite high street shop Primark - very Isabel Marant if you ask me. Witness also my most perfect and classic pair of heels. If I were ever to design a pair of heels they would have looked something like these beauties....I will cry the day I have to throw them out due to over-abusing them

I don't know what it is about the colour green but I am obsessed. Subconsciously, over the years, I have somehow managed to accumulate a rather worrying number of green items in my wardrobe. Green shirts and coats seem to be my main focus, you name the shade, I more than likely have it. People have told me it's because I'm Irish - that I am on some level trying to portray my heritage to the world......I just think I like the colour green.
Below are my most recent discoveries. The perfect everyday western boots 70% off in Topshop and a potential ball dress that was unfortunately out of my size.....the top of the dress was just so beautifully delicate and perfect.
