november inspiration

The obsession with vintage bikinis and pretty swimsuits in general continues! Any ideas where these came from?

Yes, I still haven't gotten over the 'socks-and-heels' trend. I guess it's all thanks to Mayo Yo from the blog Mellow Mayoness, she has the most gorgeous sock collection I've ever seen; lace, florals, dots and stripes!
I love Carrie's revolving style. She suits the adorable tomboy trends and cute floral fifties look. WishWishWish is a constant inspiration. Her adventures in Paris have especially caught my eye lately, she was even spotted wearing mustard tights (brave girl)! 
Ahh, we are well into November, and I must say, summer has arrived early! I've been inspired so much this month by cute trends, pretty sun-dresses and adorable swimsuits. I'm going shopping for a new swimsuit this Saturday and I'm picking up a vintage style desk and chair for my room from my lovely friend, Belle. I can't wait for the holidays when I can officially start re-decorating my space! Happy mid-week!

I got my first article published in print! Although it's mini, I love it to death ♥
