ootd | what a life

blouse: La Redoute | jeans: Forever 21 | scarf: Bershka | backpack: Primark 
shoes: ASOS | socks: Topshop | lipstick: MAC Insanely It

The backpack makes another appearance. Completely clashes with the rest of the outfit, but I needed something to tote my SLR about (why is the damn thing so heavy?) so I could pretend to be a photographer for a bit. My dad and I took a bus down the coast to a little village and walked to a restaurant to have lunch there - I say lunch, I had an ice cream sundae. The table next to us hadn't been cleared away and a bird was eating up all the crumbs off the plates. Cheeky bugger.

I treated myself to a new pair of shoes last week - let's face it, I can't wear boots all summer - and I chose these nude brogues (they're still in the sale, go go go), they look adorable combined with frilly socks and cuffed jeans. I don't think I've ever worn the blouse when I've not been on holiday before, it's the only thing I own from La Redoute and it's rather good quality. The exact cut is no longer being sold but the La Redoute website has a surprising amount of very similar styles - this one and this one are the closest I can find. I love the coral accents on this one too. Speaking of bright accents (pro segue there) I wore my pink american flag scarf cause 'MURICA, and I wore my current favourite bright pink lippie, MAC's Insanely It because I can't leave the house without lipstick.

Listening to this. Well, the whole album really.
