Last days of summer

These days, I love nothing more than tucking in an over sized tee into a skirt. Yesterday, I suddenly had an urge to wear knee highs so dug them out and layered them over tights. I'm sad that my polka-heart tights are so delicate and have a few pulls in them already! My mom took one look at me and said I looked like a little Japanese girl. I'm guessing it's the knee highs...
...and maybe the bow and Vivienne Westwood accessory? The girls from Fruits always seem to be toting a Vivienne Westwood accessory or two.Tee (UO) Skirt, tights, knee highs (Topshop) Hair Bow (H&M) Necklaces (Black Pearl and Aldo) Bag (Vivienne Westwood)
Anyway, I went to see 500 Days of Summer at the cinema yesterday with some friends. The film was kooky, beautiful with a fantastic soundtrack with the lovely Zooey Deschanel. It wasn't quite as epic as I imagined it would be...but it's definitely worth seeing!
If you follow me on twitter then you'll know that my Henry Holland 'Alphabetights' came today! My sister, Hailey's first words were "You're funny", smirked and walked off. Becky on the other hand loves them so we all know who is the cooler sister, even if she is only 12. They're not quite as sheer as they appeared in the images but I'm really impressed with the quality. I think they will last a lot longer than my polka-heart Topshop ones!

Right, I'm off to Liverpool in the morning to help Hailey move into her flat at Uni. Apparently we are painting her room so I have to have a bit of a rummage in my wardrobe for something that I don't mind getting paint on. Hmmmm. This is going to be tough!

  13. I love the knee socks over tights look. I'm going to have to do that again as soon as it's not 90degrees F where I live.

    Ack, I'm so envious of you for having the alphabet tights. They're on the top of my wishlist right now.

  20. Oh those tights look awesome on you, Winnie!!! And I'm a fan of the knee-socks over tights- though we won't be able to layer like that in the ATL until October/November ;)
    You're such a sweet sister to help with the move-in. I always hate trying to find clothes for painting, camping, hiking... my closet is not a fan of those things ;)

  28. I want some of those tights!! I don't know whether I should get some though because I have a habit of laddering them after about thirty seconds of wear and that would be heart breaking. They look amazing. Thank you for your lovely comment too :) x
