Top: Bay Trading
 Cardi, shorts, tights, socks, necklace & bag: Primark (I'm so cheap!)
Boots: Shoezone/DIY
Lizard: vintage

Favourites: it's hard to pick just one, but we all have our crazy phases where we are literally OBSESSED with a certain fabric, colour or print. Whether its that gorgeous dusty pink chiffon we found on that skirt and now we find in shirts, dresses or accessories which we almost literally run to in a shop, or maybe its that striking aztec skirt that seemed to cause a whole army of vibrant aztec pieces to appear in EVERY shop we walked in clearly bringing our obsession to the attention of friends and family. 

I have fallen under the wrath of this 'disease' for a very autumnal berry colour which I seemed to have developed a radar detector for and end up with a basket full of it at the till, where a friendly cashier politely jokes "You like this colour don't you.."

My most recent berry collective is a pair of high waisted shorts, topped off with some chunky golden buttons. They're a tad bit big, but nothing that my trusty Janome couldn't fix.

Please excuse my far-too-regular wearing of these biker boots, I'm obsessed with their comfort, good quality and pretty lace. 

Thanks for reading!

I love your shorts Faye! I really wanted to get them in Primark the other weekend, but they didn't have my size :(
And thank you for the lovely comment about my nails - as for being patient with them they really don't take long at all <3
