30/01/12; "Baby she's a wild thing." - Noah and the Whale
Where has the time flown? End of January already? Only 11 more months 'til Christmas! haha.
So, my gruelling three weeks of exams are finally over, yay! I'd rather not think about when the results come out, or whether or not I've passed. For now, I'm going to revel in the blissful ignorance of the unknown. *Pours a glass of vino*
I went to Nottingham at the weekend to see all my best friends which was lovely. It's good to have that group of friends from back home to keep you grounded from the hectic lifestyle at university. It's funny how we all just slip back into our little dynamic when we see each other.
Safe to say I went a leeeeettle overboard this week on purchases, I won't show-and-tell everything just yet but I'm sure I'll feature them in future blog posts! I wore this lovely polka-heart vintage number to Nottingham, (from @shopdixi! Cheeky little plug there...) teaming it with converses and a blazer during the day, and switching to black lace up brogues at night when we went out. I've learnt to 'pack lightly', shall we say. Which is good, seeing as I used to have costume changes for every possible weather alteration & travelled with a small suitcase on day trips out.
Satchel - Vintage
Navy Dress - Dixi
Heart Ring - Dixi
Watch - Outfitters
Shoes - Converse
These Converses are quite a recent purchase, I got them for more than half price off on eBay, bargain! Still rather squeaky-clean though which looks a little weird! So I'm wearing them in.
I've also noticed a new trend in rings. Bunnies, deer, ladybirds... The accessories kingdom has gone wild for animals! And if there's one thing you'll learn about me, the chances of seeing me without any rings on, are close to none. I just love 'em! My collection is ridiculous. But there's always room for more, so I thought I'd treat myself to some new goodies;
Deer antlers, Dixi
Bias aside, the jewellery section on Dixi is so good, where you'll find plenty of these gems and all for cheap prices.
Here are some more I found on the highstreet;
Bunny Ring, Labryinth Vintage
Black Widow Gold Ring, Goldie London
Frog Ring, Never Fully Dressed Vintage
Teddy Stud Earrings, Topshop
I realise the last one doesn't fit in with the theme as much, but they're so sweet! And teddies are technically bears anyway, right?
I'm loving writing these posts every week, so really hope you enjoy reading them. I should probably mention a thankyou to my housemate @Joel_Walker who's been taking all my pictures for me haha.
Anyway, happy shopping girls!
Have a lovely week,
