Seeing spots...

Jacket: Principles at Debenhams, top: H&M, skirt: Primark, belt: vintage at Topshop,  shoeboots:  Office,  necklace:  D.I.Y  from Laura Ashley, bag: Fiorelli
There are some days where clothes just seem to work together and yesterday was one of those days. I wanted something frivolous that was also fairly practical and so the pairing of a simple white t-shirt with this gorgeous spotted skirt seemed to be a match made in heaven for a day of revision. I also got the chance to wear the necklace which I got for my birthday off Cindy and Dan as the colours matched perfectly!

For some reason I look really unimpressed in all of these photos but I was actually in quite a good mood! It was an outfit that felt slightly more grown-up, due in part I think to the white t-shirt...although it's a basic for many people, I can honestly say I only wear it a couple of time a year! I guess though, that's the beauty of being able to create your own wardrobe, a few years ago I wore it almost constantly so it's interesting to see how my style has evolved :) 

Sunglasses: Accessorize 
Outtake of the day has to go to this rather windswept photo of me in my new sunglasses! I love  the cat-eye shapes and Paula wears it well but have always been a bit wary until I swooped down on these beauties in Accessorize. I usually treat myself to a new pair of sunglasses each year whether that is magazine freebies or Primark specials and the tortoiseshell frames and slight cat-eye meant that I was unable to put these beauties back on the shelf... They have been the perfect finishing touch to many an outfit since I bought them and I think they may have even overtaken this pair as my favourite! 

Has your style evolved? Do you think it's worth spending money on accessories or do you rarely wear them?

Awww this outfit is lovely and the DIY necklace kit is amaze!

As for accessories, I do love them, however when in a rush or just being general absent minded it's so easy to forget them!

Loving the beautiful skirt- the colours are fabulous. You've just made me realise that I actually don't own a plain white tee anymore. Lots of plain black, grey and pastel/esque pink but not white. How odd....

Those colours are gorgeous on you. I've always been all about accessories. I go through months with no new actually clothing but just a million necklaces and handbags! That necklace kit is absolutely lovely. x
