SOMETHING'S COME ALONG AND IT'S BURST OUR BUBBLE


Cone Knitted Jumper – WND.LND – I have entered a couple of competitions on Instagram but I am pretty selective and it needs to be something that really takes my fancy.  When one of my favourite labels WND.LND (You may remember my post recently about their Ice Cream collection)  offered the opportunity to win a “Cone Knitted Jumper” I couldn't resist!
 I actually squealed with excitement when I was picked as the winner of this gorgeous jumper and was elated when it arrived a few days later. The quality is divine, it is soft and toasty warm, it leaves room for layering but still has a flattering cut.  I am often lured into cheap knit wear because of cute prints and colour ways and I accept when making the purchase it will be a one season piece but there really is nothing more luxurious than beautiful knitwear.  A  good quality knit is a great investment piece and if stored and washed properly, really does stand the test of time.

 The jumper isn't a colour I would usually be drawn to, my wardrobe is a whirlwind of colour and prints and seriously lacks basics and neutral tones.  The jumper is available in a pretty pastel pink and if I had of been purchasing it, I would have predictably  gone for that option but I was actually pleasantly surprised with how well it seems to work back with such a large variety of pieces in my wardrobe.

Just a note on this skirt: it did arrive with an almost fishy smell that was pretty unpleasant. I sprayed it down with a bunch of perfume, popped it on the drying rack in front of the fan on full blast and voila! Stinky free :) 

Thank you so much to WND.LND and for anyone who hasn't checked out their gorgeous range, jump on their website and prepare to fall in love xo

PRETTY EYED, PIRATE SMILES

I managed to get half way up the street in this outfit and had to pop into the supermarket to grab some flesh toned tights because my legs were covered in goosebumps! I am not sure how I totally forgot how great these are for winter to still get away with wearing my vast collection of socks.xo

DAISY DREAM - Marc Jacobs


Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of my signature scents and I can't wait to go out and try Daisy Dream. I have fallen madly in love with this short film directed by Sofia Coppola and have a sudden urge to lay in a field of flowers and rewatch Virgin Suicides.

What is your signature scent? Xo
