Loopy Lexa

First of all, I know post has took a while, I'm not even going to begin to go into how busy I am. So this is THE Mulberry bag, THE mulberry bag that replaced having a iPad case.. it was ridiculously discounted (obviously) I think the RRP was something ridiculous like £900 or something and i got it for a mere (harhar) £265. I got it from the York Outlet ( which was why my last post was in york) and it was reduced twice so HAPPY TIMES. I love the print, i love the colours coming through, I love how each one was different and it took me so long to pick the one I wanted! I think this bag was made for me to pick it up! I could honestly just admire it for hours!

Also, I was dying for a pair of heels I could easily wear through the day/night! And i found my perfect pair half price (£35) I thought they might be uncomfortable as I'm usually allergic to anything that does not have a platform but the chunky heel sorts that problem out!

Today Im Wearing: Top: Vintage Scarf: Vivienne Westwood (SALE) CArdigan: TKMAXX Skirt: Topshop (SALE) Shoes: Topshop (SALE) P.s ignore my tired miserable face result of no sleep and stress. So its still cold but I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT FOR SPRING. I HAVE BOUGHT HALF MY SPRING WARDROBE ALREADY. BUT I CANT WEAR IT ALL YET :( Plenty of blue green leather prints all sorts :D I always get excited when new season comes, when winter comes round I usually say I prefer winter fashion but it's LIES. I want to be on a beauitful city break wearing S/S clothes and NO TIGHTS. I'm thinking venice. But i probably will and freeze doing it :) Until then <3

Hello! My look today is from my lovely little trip to Yorkshire, I did plenty of walking (shopping) eating and drinking coffee. We managed to catch our train (just) at half seven and got a late train back at quater past 9!

It's a little blurry but I love train station photographs, I love them when they're busy, its a much more effective photo that way. Anyways I thought this was pretty, this was took at nearly 9AM and its not properly light yet!

The weather was a nightmare to deal with this day, I remember I had to keep sheltering my bag from the rain (lime green lambskin doesnt deal with it.) Countless umbrella-inside-out moments and cold feet :(

My Outfit
Dress: ASOS Sale
Cardi: TK Maxx
Bag: Mulberry (York outlet naturally)
Shoes: Topshop

It was lovely nevertheless! These photographs were taken on Shambles, the most picturesque street in Europe! (Although I'm sure the bf said it was the most visited or something!) Anyways, it is so pretty, I love cobbled streets (does anyone else like the clippy cloppy sound shoes make on them too) so what better place for a shot!

I think I need more shirts ( or shirt dresses) in my life like this one! As you know im loving blues but I think its safe to say anything that is green/blue/yellow/orange or nude is mine this season.

Now, I know I need to show you my new Mulberry, I promise the post will come soon, I need good photos and I can't get them as I havent had a day off in a while and I need the natural light! ( me no likey flash)

Will keep you updated!

Happy new year! This is the first chance I've had to do a post, sorry it's not so prompt as I hoped, but I've got plenty things lined up! I've had my trip to Mulberry outlet in york, they had no iPad cases unfortunately and I was a little naughty (and got a bag, post will follow soon)

My look today is a Jonathan Saunders long tee, I love the digital print on this, it is a sort of tribal mix but still feels very futuristic. The colour story inside it is beautiful, I'm a fan of all sort of shades of blues and greens atm. I got this top from in the sale (£29) which is amazing for designer. I paired this with a mint green boyfriend cardigan, my colour for Spring/Summer has definitely GOT to be mint green. I'm thinking I need one of everything in it. Even better if it's made out of leather.

This is one of many inspirational images from Etsy, the soap looks good enough to eat! See the exact item here,
My cardi is merino wool and from one of my favourite shops ever, Tk Maxx at £25 it is a much needed staple in my wardrobe (and no doubt will be over used in spring)

My pumps are Vivienne Westwood/ Melissa. I love nude flats and I wish I could own every pair in the world, they go with everything and are too useful. These ones are plastic and smell so sweet, I got them on my uniform so were discounted anyways ^.^

Watch: Michael Kors
Ring: Dannijo

At the moment im wearing this top as a dress because its thick enough but I'm looking for more inventive ways to wear it ( not just with jeans etc, tucked into skirts) So if anyone has any inspiring outfit ideas PLEASE leave a comment, again don't forget to leave your blogs and I'll write back.

I don't know about you but I'm getting so exciting for SPRING, bring on the colour!

Next post on York trip soon!
