The Journey


top: motel, shorts: diy, boots: primark, shirt: charity shop, bracelet: c/o dixi, above knuckle and silver ring: dixi, rose ring: sisters


Wow isn't this weather amazing?! Very different from when I took these pictures last weekend. Honestly feel like I'm in a foreign country right now and it's making me extremely happy- time to change from skin tone 'fluorescent white' to 'extremely pale with freckles'- I do tan eventually (believe it or not) but because I start off such an unnatural colour you can't tell unless I whip my tan lines out aha. 

I was told I look very 80's in this outfit, picked up this top from the Motel boutique in Bristol for just £7! Bargain. Motel have lots of retro prints in at the moment I'm such a fan. I've been looking for these shorts for ages, me and my nan made them last year quite easily, just grabbed a pair of leggings from Primark and chopped them off at the right length, bought some lace and stitched it on. I had completely given up of finding them- but, they were hiding under my chest of drawers, yayy.


(Apologies for the empty cans etc in the background- classy)
