Summertime Sadness

Shorts - Omen Eye & DIY
Sunglasses - Ebay

GAAAHH! I'm so excited to show you all my new pink hair! Those of you who follow me on instagram will have already seen it, but oh my, I love this colour so much! It's a more lilac pink than the one I had before which is exactly what I wanted; the people at Pravana Vivids are definitely amoungst my top 5 favourite people in the world right now and I really hope the dye lasts (unlike the disappointment that was CrazyColour). It's weird but I feel so much more myself with pink hair than with blonde, I'm just so in love with how it's turned out :3

Another reason to be excited this week was this gorgeous crop top that arrived in my blogger mail from She Likes clothing, I'd never heard of the site before but it's full of amazing pieces that are really affordable. I was torn between this top and a similar one in a bright purple but they also had some really cute dresses and pinafores - I was honestly spoilt for choice so go and check them out!
I decided to style this monochrome top with my highwaisted and distressed shorts from OmenEye and my beloved lilac booties from Own the Runway, mainly because I love all of the cool-toned colours together!

Let me know what you think of this look!

Get in my wardrobe #12

Dress and shorts - Topshop
Holographic boots - Daily Look
Dungarees - Missguided

Arghhh so much want! It's so typical that right at the time I have hardly any money I find so much stuff that I love; I am head over heels for those pink dungarees, they're just so cute and would look so cool with a crop top and jelly shoes or cutout boots! The same goes for the Topshop dress, I can't wait to try it on and see how it fits but the colours and shape are so pretty, it'd be perfect for summer.
I don't have many words for those shoes but holographic platforms with a clear heel, does it get much better than that!?

What do you think of these items?

DIY - Changing the buckles on my Topshop Aubrey Boots

Cutout boots - Topshop Aubrey Boots
Nail polish - Barry M Chameleon Lilac, 332

I've wanted a pair of cutout boots for ages now, but being as small as I am, I didn't like any of the ones that were too flat and clunky because they made me look like some sort of clown/lesbian/short person/lady with disproportionally-large-feet-syndrome. Soo when I saw the Topshop Aubrey boots with their 3 inch chunky heel and grungey cut-out detailing it was love at first sight, with just one problem...they had gold hardwear (dun dun duuuuunn). Those of you who know me will know that I do not like gold, I don't wear gold jewellery, gold accessories or anything with the faintest bit of gold detailing whatsoever...I just don't like it, I'm a cool-toned gal at heart ya see. So, stupidly, I gave these bad boys a miss when I tried them on in Nottingham a couple of months back; I thought the issue of the dreaded gold buckles was a deal-breaker in our seemingly doomed relationship. As soon as I got in the car to go home I knew I should've bought them, and thus began the long and difficult task of tracking a pair down - all of a sudden they were sold out everywhere, and I mean everywhere! I was watching a pair on eBay that ended up selling for over £100 when the retail was only £75!! (I think anyway) By this point I had pretty much given up hope, until another pair popped up on eBay and in the last couple of hours had 17 watchers and a bid of £36, I couldn't resist and went for it. By some sort of miracle these boots were mine for £40!! 
However, there was still the issue of the gold buckles...I have to admit, I took a bit of a gamble here but I'm so happy with the results! All I did was paint all of the visible gold hardwear with my silvery-lilac nail polish, it didn't take too long and I am in love with the purple tint to the colour! I now wear these constantly and have been getting slightly too excited about all the cute glittery/lacey/netty socks I have bought to wear with them!
