Une robe de France

Dress- A french shop (I can't remember the name)
Frilly socks- Topshop
Creepers- Newlook
Sunglasses- A stool on the Brighton lanes

I just wanted to quickly share a few photos of a dress I wore to a party on sunday. The dress is from the beautiful town of St Malo, in France (hence the title). I found it in a shop that I would describe as the french version of H&M, but unfortunately I cannot remember the name of it! 
I like the soft, satin material of this dress and the unique pattern, and it is perfect for summer and winter!

Hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer and I empathise with anyone dreading the return of school/work/uni. I am entering my final year secondary school and am so happy about it!

Disposables: Gentlemen of the Road, Lewes 2013

A few weeks ago I went to a festival called 'Gentlemen of the Road' in Lewes, held by Mumford and Sons, who headlined. The festival goes across America but this was the only one to take place in England and it was one of the best weekends of my life... So far. My particular favourites were of course Mumford and Sons, Vampire Weekend (who also headlined), and The Vaccines. A band which I barely knew of before I went to the festival but I would now consider myself a definite fan of their music also did a set; they are called 'Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros' and sound and look as if they have plucked right out of the 40's... or 50's... or 60's (Or some time that wasn't in the 20th century, that I'm certain of). 
I attended the festival along with my cousin (in the white top and blonde hair), my twinny (in the pink top), and my two best friends! The photos aren't the best quality but I love disposables as they always bring photos out in such nice colours and because of their un-modernness (definitely not a word) they give a retro feel which I personally love. 
I have just returned from a holiday in france where I also took some snaps using a disposable, so I will definitely be sharing those in the coming weeks.
Hope everyone reading is amazing!

Summer layers

Woo, I'm back! Due to my laziness/ lack of motivation and creativity I have not done a post in ages and I didn't want to do one just because I feel I have to, it's pointless. 
Anyway my outfit today consists of two pretty pieces- both from Topshop, obviously, thrown together to create a summer outfit that suffices for a British weather! I'm also wearing frilly socks, something I seem to of suddenly started collecting, they just add something nice to so many of my outfits. Thankyou for having a look!
