anne

Thrifted top and bag, Tempt skirt, Target shoes

This top came out for a rare appearance the other day! It's a thrift purchase and reminds me of Anne Shirley... I think it might be the puff sleeves and huge lace collar. Despite it being pink, pretty and costed a mere three dollars, it's an absolute brat to style! It's a square top with a cinched in hem so the only way I'm game enough to wear it is with a high waisted skirt so I have some sort of waist definition. Do you have a top that might be similar? I'm desperate for other ways to style it because it's way too pretty to be sitting in my wardrobe collecting dust!

How has your week been? This week was for me, slightly off. I wasn't getting enough sleep and things were starting to crumble all at once when finally I had a bit of an emotional *teenager* breakdown tonight that ensued the use of a couple of hundred Kleenex (it was like a cartoon; the tears just wouldn't stop!), a long, angry diary entry (that took a massive load off of my shoulders, by the way) and a strong brew of camomile and honey tea to knock me out (naturally of course). It's ok, we all have off days (or weeks...) and this was just another downhill in the life rollercoaster. Although I'm working most of this weekend, I might still fit a little retail therapy in as well as planning out what I'll wear to an upcoming dinner party for my friend at a fancy restaurant on the beach. What do you guys think of this dress with a statement necklace and gold heels? Hopefully it won't be too chilly ;)
Anyway, I can already feel my eyelids drooping (the camomile must be kicking in), but before I bid you all farewell, here's a few links you should have a peak at! This 'Things I Love' post by Kaelah is awesome; she is a link love wiz and these posts are done each week, perfect for reading with a tea or coffee on your lunch break. A video all about confidence was done by the lovely Kate and brightened my week up and this awesome photo series was clever and thought-provoking.

Love you all so very much xo

Aw man, those cinched in tops really are hard to wear. But perhaps it might work with some really pretty trousers? Perhaps with a girly print on them? Or maybe some frilly shorts?

I do like how you made it work this time around though. The pink is lovely against the blue florals.

I love the pattern on your skirt! It's nice to know I'm not the only person to have a few meltdowns, you would have found me demolishing a box on Kleenex on Tuesday night. x

Yes, a modern take on Anne Shirley indeed! I absolutely adore that you're an AoGG fan too, growing up it was my favorite series of books :3

Also, sorry to hear that you had kind of a sucky week - hope that your weekend is going much better!
