here comes the sun

Blouse c/o Sheinside, ASOS skirt, Kmart sandals and bag, Forever New belt

This top arrived in the mail on Friday and isn't it gorgeous? I'm in love with the embroidered details. They add such a subtle touch of vintage. Yesterday afternoon was perfect for taking photos; lovely, cool and sunny, the sort of weather perfect for a picnic or a read in the grass.

How was your weekend? I bought a curling wand on Sunday! I've been coveting one ever since watching Lauren's curl tutorial. Sarah came over on Friday to get ready with me before Theatresports (our schools' annual mini-production), and she curled all of my hair tightly and I felt like a brunette Carrie Bradshaw! I had to buy one after that. Who can resist Carrie curls?! 
P.S: Oh, and congratulations to Sandrine! You've won the OASAP giveaway, look out for an email from me :) Thanks so much to everyone who entered, you guys rock!
