1920s inspired...

I was clearly looking to a slightly earlier decade for inspiration than I usually would here, I don't usually wear anything non-fitted or oversized but there's something about Monki that forces me out of my comfort zone, I love the cool yet accessible Scandinavian feel of their clothes, even if I'm not a tall willowy blonde! This is the cream Precious jumper dress which I really love, I am seriously tempted to get the blue version too... I really like the relaxed shape of it and paired with my string of faux pearls, it felt very 1920s inspired. I can imagine it looking really nice with some t-bars or Mary Jane shoes for a dressier look too which is always good. You can't go wrong with a good jumper dress in Autumn/Winter! 

Jumper dress: Monki, leggings: Tesco, boots: c/o Spartoo, necklace: Dorothy Perkins
I had to put a white camisole top underneath it as it is a little sheer but a slip dress would work just as well as an extra layer when it gets colder. For some reason, the Boots in Ludlow had the 'Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick' in Cherry Blossom reduced to just £2 and it is a gorgeous pinky red which I have been wearing to work pretty much everyday this week - I don't know why but I have always found it much easier to wear lipstick in the colder months and this is a really easy to wear shade! I am so glad that I am getting my hair cut later, it has gotten more than a little wild!


When John Greed got in touch with me to ask whether I was interested in reviewing some Pandora charms, I was a little dubious - I have never liked the silver bracelets. But when this grey leather bracelet with this charm arrived, I fell in love and I have worn it every day since. I have even started a wishlist of the charms I want (*cough* this owl one *cough*) It is strange how the people who are most disapproving of something become the biggest converts ;)

Worn with Barry M grey nail varnish topped with Max Factor sparkly black nail polish.

Are you a fan of charm bracelets? Which charms would you recommend?

Love the 20's feel here. It's such a lovely look, perfected by the necklace as well.

Oh how pretty! The pearls definitely give it a 20s vibe. I love flapper dresses and every garment from The Great Gatsby film. ;)

I am so jealous of how you just seem to be able to suit clothing from so many different eras! Really love this. I am now craving to watch Gatsby again though...

Boo, I didn't realise until too late that you were coming to Ludlow!
I love the dress on you, I'm always wary of jumper dresses, though.
