take back the night

playsuit new look teens / satchel peacocks (here) / loafers peacocks (here) / bracelets assorted, from travels / nails: la colours 'jewel tone'

Surprisingly nice weather today allowed me to whip out one of my favourite pieces of clothing, this playsuit from New Look. I bought it when on sale a couple of years ago, down to only £3 or something crazy like that. It still fits me despite purchasing it before my 'growth spurt', somewhat confirming how I haven't actually grown that much in the past few years (once a midget, always a midget). I love how it incorporates a dark background shade and florals, making it less girly and more wearable for someone like myself who is scared of colour and prone to spilling things all over me. That is why you will very rarely see me wearing a white shirt...

The satchel and loafer duo are new purchases from when I was in Wales thanks to the lovely family friend, Cle, who not only let me stay with her, but also quickly became my shopping partner-in-crime. I rarely ever pop into Peacocks as there aren't many stores near where I live. This made it a pleasant surprise when I popped into the Whitchurch store in Cardiff to be attacked by rails of lovely bags and rails of shoes. I'm still in the process of convincing my parents that just because I have shoes, doesn't mean I shouldn't continue to buy more and more pairs. Makes sense, right? I have a lot of potential love to give out to new pairs of autumn boots which I will feature in an upcoming wishlist post for sure. I'm going for the pre-autumn vibes. Perfect weather (occasionally) and lightweight layering = happy times.

I'm donning incredibly OTT nails at the moment, ones I've nicknamed 'the celebratory nails'. Mainly because my exam results come out in two days and in the midst of me being an absolute nervy wreck, I'm trying my hardest to remain positive and am hoping my celebratory nails will foreshadow exam success. Foreshadowing eh, hopefully that's English Lit down to a t...
