Rhubarb and Custard

28 July 2009

I've not had much of a chance to take outdoor shots lately as British summer is terribly unpredictable...so sticking to my bedroom shots for now!

Blazer (Zara) Top and Skirt (Topshop) Tights (Oasis) Shoes (Jefferey Campbell via Solestruck)

I bought some new tights! I wore the purple leopard print ones today and had to get my hands on the stripey ones which I first spotted on Selina a year ago and they also feature on her awesome video of her tights collection. I have loads of tights too but nowhere near as many as she has!

I had a little too much time on my hands and was inspired by Emma's awesome nail skills.

Right so I better get to bed seeing as I have to get up in a few hours to get my train down to London to meet some friends for the day. It's actually the first of two trips down to London this week...as I will be visiting another friend for the weekend from Friday. It's funny how sometimes you can do nothing for weeks and weeks then end up with your diary full of things to do!

Ooh thank you for all your congrats for the last post. Elin is definitely an inspiration even if she doesn't think so herself!

  14. Now that's what I call tights! I'm love in with the leopard ones, although the black ones would probably be a great autumn/winter staple. Oh, and love what you did with your nails!

    Oh, and that last post was really moving. Elin is definitely an inspiration that with hard work and dedication anything is possible.

  18. Big love for those stripey tights! I need some new tights for the winter/autumn/colder weather as all I have are black and brown ones which are boring to say the least.

    I love your top as well!

  19. I've been looking for leopard print tights forever, but purple ones are even better :)Anyway, I adore your outfit and your nails but your comment makes me worry about the weather I'll face in London. What is it like? I hear it's cold and rainy. Is it bad enough that I should try to pack my huge rain boots? Sorry for all the questions but I have no idea what I'll encounter.

  21. Very rhubarb and custard - I like! The tights are great too! However it is sad that it is nearly August and in good old England we are still having to resort to tights and leggings! I have a very boring selection of tights because I always put my foot straight through them - usually on the first wear! :) x
