Feelin' French

There's something about wearing stripes and a red lip that always makes me feel a bit French.. all I need is a little flat cap and a sack of onions.. right? Okay well that was the most stereotypical I've ever been. I guess I mean more 'fake' French.. Y'know.. like fancy dress?... Hmm.. let's move on from that shall we.
This is probably the best I've felt in an outfit for a while. I'm usually one for a bit of grunge... baggy jumpers and ripped jeans with a pair of trainers.. I guess you'll know this by now. There's something about this outfit though that makes me feel a little sophisticated... 'put together' almost. Let's be real.. there's nothing 'put together' about me.. not for want of trying though, trust me.
 The boots are a recent purchase from the Primark sale, coming in at £10! I've never really been that into pointy boots before as I've always been a bit concerned that they might make my feet look long like clown feet. However, I walked away from this purchase feeling entirely comfortable with the appeared length of said feet and only £10 lighter. (If only it was that easy to shift 10lbs.)
Primark Mac & Boots, Topshop Tee & Leggings, Vintage, Asos & Homemade Rings

I'm aware that I might seem a little Primark obsessed recently, but it makes a change from Topshop doesn't it. (Cheaper too). I'm pretty much in love with this Mac, I saw it over on Hannah Gale's blog (If you don't read her blog already then I think you need to) just after I'd bought it and I have a feeling that it's going to be one of those sought after items. It's just so perfect for spring!

Oh also, I had my hair chopped again. What do you think? I feel bald.

Have you bought anything recently that will take you nicely into spring?

  1. Looking gorgeous mate, and a little bit French. Definitely need a beret to finish the outfit off.
    And a cigarette dangling from one hand if you're that way inclined (don't smoke kids, stay in school etc).
    LOVE that mac, and I kinda want the pointy boots in my life as well... xo

  13. A mac, striped top and red lippy has to be my all time favourite outfit! I just bought myself that mac in dark green and I can't wait till it warms up enough for me to wear it.
