Rainy Sunday ootd

I realise the photos are quite bad quality, they were taken on my phone. 

In these photos I am wearing... 

White Fred Perry - here
H&M floral skirt - similar here
Chestnut leather Zatchel satchel - here
 Gold and purple Casio - here
Silver Pandora - here

Today I drove to Asda, went to see my boyfriend, watched TV and played Animal Crossing. Sounds boring but I love lazy Sundays. 

Did everyone else have a nice Sunday?

Etsy shop with cute jewellery!

I've been meaning to do this for a long time, I've finally made an Etsy shop! 

I'm selling cute rings and will hopefully make more things soon, maybe some necklaces and hair clips. 

I am currently selling 4 different styles of rings all for £2.50.

My shop is called Bees and Bows, and let me know if you have any suggestions of things I could make!

Also, here's another link to my ebay. I've got a brand new prom dress starting at £5 and my pinafore dress is still at 99p!

Sewing inspiration - skirts

I've never really been good at sewing, but a few years ago my mum bought me a sewing machine for Christmas and I would love to know how to use it properly. So my mission for this Summer is to make a least one thing using it. 

I found this post about making a circle skirt on Birdee Mag, which explains how to make a circle skirt and seems quite easy. I just need to find some fabric. 

I've always like florals and paisley patterns and they never really get boring. 

I also like the idea of having cartoons on skirts, like the Black Milk Adventure Time collection, because I think it's quite unique. 

I might even look into making a Hello Kitty skirt, I think that would be cute. 

I'm so motivated now, I just need to decide on fabric! 

If anyone knows where I can buy reasonably cheap and good quality fabric please let me know, I'm really new to this!

Chunky Summer shoes

So a few months ago I decided I needed some summer shoes, something cute and comfortable but appropriate for the unpredictable heat of Britain. However, instead of returning home with some cute Lolita-like summer shoes, I stumbled upon some chunky gladiator sandals in New Look. Although I wasn't looking for these in the first place, they suit me a lot more, I've always been drawn to chunkier shoes - creepers, Dr Martens etc. 

Here are more alternatives to the surprisingly comfortable chunky gladiator sandals I found in New Look. 

So here are my pretty chunky shoes as I mentioned. 

They were £25 from New Look, similar here.

Maybe I'll find some cute summer shoes another year.
