Today I am wearing...
White/Yellow Lace Top ~ River Island, £15 (sale, was £30!!)
Plain White Vest Crop-Top ~ New Look, £3.99 (ish)
Lace Shorts ~ Republic 'ONLY', £5 (sale, was about £20)
Brown Leather Belt ~ Oasis, £3 (sale, was £15 ish)
It seems the theme here is sale items so lets discuss that. Being a broke student without a job, living on the allowance of my parents, I am the type to only ever buy something if its on sale/ if I really need (/want) something.
This top is still pretty expensive, I probably wouldn't have bought it if I didn't have brithday money to spend but I love it sooooo much!! Its perfect for spring/summer, dress up with a maxi skirt or casual with shorts like I have here (or how I am right now with trackies on :P ) I bought it in a 6 as it was the last size left though normally I'm an 8 on top and 10 on bottoms.
The shorts I actually bought quite a few years ago in republic just before it closed down in the "last few days" sale which is why there are ridiculously cheap. I think the lace on the left hand side just adds a little bit of interestingness to it. They are a little on the large side so I have either having to hold them up myself or wear a belt. In this case, the belt is from Oasis and wooohh the bargin!!! When I picked it up it said something like £15 reduced to £10 and for a leather belt these days that is not at all bad but when I got to the check out and she said it was £3 I was like 'Are you sure??' So that made my day!!
Other things featured in these photos are a watch from my sister bought for me for my birthday (etsy sop will be linked at the end), some photos of my sister and I, flowers and a dying plant that I am strategically hiding with my hand. Plus a bunch of random jewellery (des bijoux - see learnt some french after 5 years of studying it)
Incase you don't follow me on instagram (@lifeandotherwonders) then you won't know that I am currently taking my GCSE exams, of which I have about 24, which is why I have been somewhat absent from the blog recently. I have some plans, some of which I've left too late to do now (life a best dressed for the Met Gala, did you see some of the dresses!!!!) but I will try and upload about once a week if I can. After exams of course, you can expect a lot of blogging as I won't really have much else to do!!! I have super-duper long holiday, broken up with various holidays/camps etc. For the weeks I'm away, I might actually plan ahead and schedule posts to go up!! Wooohhh that might be a bit much though so we'll see :)
Its like 10:15 pm and I'm leaving for school at 7:15 tomorrow morning (eheh.... so early) so I should probably get some much needed rest
lot of hugs, abbey xxx
