With new shoe purchases becoming a common theme recently on the blog (I feel a new addiction coming on) I thought I might share with you the latest pair to grace my feet from Doc Martens. I like to call them the 'mermaid shoes', as they have that colour changing quality where you never quite know the exact shade of them giving them that 'mermaid' like quality. I first spotted them whilst on a spontaneous browse on the DM site and that's when the "obsession" began. It was one of those moments where I couldn't stop dreaming up outfits to pair them with, sad I know. So when I went in to a store to try them (and drool over them in real life) they needed to be mine. The fact that they sold out online but happened to have in stock the last pair in my size I took as a sign of fate, and immediately snapped them up. Plus they do 10% discount for students *SCORE*-how could I resist?

Owning a pair of 'jelly shoes' have been one of those items which has been top of my wish list ever since the 'toddler' trend re-entered my life. So you could only imagine my delight when I came across this sparkly pair in the bargain section of Primark. As a self-confessed magpie I was instantly drawn to their rose gold shimmer, yet when I went to see how much they were my eyes widen even more.  They were only £1. I'm still in shock that they were so cheap and better yet they had my size, because lets be honest there is nothing worse than pair of shoes that you've fallen in love with have sold out of your size. Who knows what (glittery) hidden gems I will lay my hands on next?!

Pleats & Plaits

If there's one word to describe how I felt when sporting this outfit it would be 'Ranch-Cowgirl'-due to the hat and plaits combination. It also probably didn't help that my sister was singing country western songs whilst taking these photos-thanks sis. Western aside with my recent go-to a.k.a black turtle neck jumper (can't get enough!) in tow I decided to take inspiration from my Hello Kitty backpack (obviously) by pairing it with a similar coloured pleated skirt, I recently inherited. There's something about wearing a full pleated skirt that I adore, from the retro influence to the way it flows whilst you walk-cue the dramatic entrances. What could once be seen as a "granny" piece of clothing, can soon be banished with the help of an oversized faux-fur coat and a Hello Kitty pack back (of course).
