vegas

 Vintage sweater, Asos skirt, Rubi shoes, Oasap bag, sunglasses and bracelets

For some reason this skirt reminds me of Vegas; palm trees, retro cars, fabulous music and cocktails. It's one of my favourite Asos purchases and I love the retro vibe that it gave off while paired with this charming vintage sweater. The embroidery around the collar was what caught my eye the most... it's exquisite and pretty.
Today was a 'hair in a bun' kinda day. The weather was completely unpredictable! You wouldn't believe it but about half an hour before these pictures were taken, rain was pounding on the path outside and I thought the chance of outfit pictures was second to none. But! The sun popped out momentarily just in time and I managed to get some lovely, sunny shots with the fabulous sunglasses that arrived in the mail last week. I haven't taken them off since they came and I regret nothing!
Anyway, I'm glad it's the weekend. Tonight my little sis (also my fabulous photographer) is celebrating her First Holy Communion. She gets to wear a pretty dress, cape, veil and have her hair in curls. It should be very exciting!

On another note, my dermatologist has been very happy with the way things are going with my skin. It was flaring up a little a few weeks ago so he prescribed three months worth of Erythromycin, an anti-infammatory drug to help soothe my skin during the process of Isotretinoin (roaccutane). It has helped a lot and things are beginning to look a lot brighter.
Anyway, I have to go start getting ready for Tessie's big event. I hope you have an excellent weekend! I'll be returning comments, tweets and emails in between school work, hot chocolate and Little Women (my all time favourite movie!) this weekend xo

You look glamorous and would definitely fit in in Vegas Maria!

I hope your sisters Communion goes well, how exciting! I remember my sister's being a very beautiful affair.

It is so great to here that the medication is doing it's wonders, I am so happy for you :)

P.S You should DEFINITELY watch the Fox and the Child, it is just so magical. Also, I have seen the BBC Tess (Eddie is BEAUTIFUL despite playing who I found to be quite an unlikable character) and read the book. I highly recommend you do study it, it is one of my all time favourite books.

Ohh that skirt makes me think of Vegas too! I love the cars and cocktail print so much and it goes beautifully with this sweater. Such a great 50s style look. Your sunglasses are absolutely fabulous too, I had the hardest time deciding on a pair to buy this week and almost bought a pair like these ones. Really wish I did now, next time...but for now I've settled on 60s black catseye ones :D

On another note, you're right about your skirt. It does give off Vegas vibes! Very cute.
Also, weather is a funny thing.

I love skirt print! It reminds me of Palm Springs (a desert town here in Southern California). And that's a really cute charming sweater!
