Hello! I feel like I'm always rushing doing these posts, I really love doing them but sorry there aren't more. Or not? Maybe they're all the better for being rare gems...
Ok. So this post will be more bitty than outfit-y.
First up, my new hat. You may have seen it on Twitter last week but if not, here it is in all its vintage-C&A-from-a-charity-shop glory:
Haha. Look at Dynasty-esque expression. I was actually just doing it in a rush because there were shoppers all around me!
Next, the books I've been reading recently.
I can't get enough of Philippa Gregory's books. The Lady of the Rivers is the third book in a three part series describing women in opposing or higher/lower roles but all tied up with the houses of York, Lancaster and Tudor in the summer of 1430. They're very accurate (she is a historian) but to be honest the love stories and lives of the women in these books feel like the most real parts even though they are fictional! But they are based on facts about women in the past that Philippa Gregory has found through research and decided to create a story around.
Lastly, I read The Color Purple for the first time, and it's really moving, sad but hopeful at the same time. It's written as a series of letters by a black woman and her sister, and their lives as they get older and live through hardships.
So three very good ones there, lucky me! I've also finally given in to pressure and am reading the Game of Thrones series and they are very good books too.
A recent outfit:
Dress - Dorothy Perkins, Jacket - vintage, snood, H&M (present)
I love this outfit! I wore it to work then straight out to the pub. I haven't got so many outfit posts to do at the moment as I haven't got a penny (because I booked my month long trip to Thailand in August, yay!) to buy new things and I don't like to keep repeating clothes.
And last but definitely not least, me in a fox mask. Just because.
