Checks and Bows


Wearing: Vintage vest top, APC skirt, Pastelle ballet flats, Primark sunnies

No vintage dress today, a vintage top instead. (I have to shoehorn a bit of vintage into most of my outfits!) I have been loving not wearing trousers the last few days, this weather is sublime. I am back to work tomorrow though so I am making the most of it.
This skirt is from APC which is one of my favourite brands (which I never buy because it's so expensive!) but when I spotted this one in the Urban Outfitters sale, reduced to £20 from £180, I knew I had to have it. There was only one left and it happened to be in my size! Lucky or what.  I love the shape and the little pockets which have cute bows on them, adorable. I wore it with a vintage vest top I got for 50p in a local charity shop and Pastelle ballet flats. I have a total obsession with ballet flats; I rarely wear flip flops because they rub in between my toes so a decent flat shoe usually presents itself in the shape of a good quality ballet. I don't really buy cheap ones, because I have a bunion on my foot (urgh!) and the low cut ones, whilst probably a lot more flattering, really cut into it and make it hurt. So I go for a more classic shape which is less painful! These ones by Pastelle cost around £40 but are worth every penny to me because they are literally like wearing slippers. I've bought £4 from Primark before and literally had to chuck them away after one wear because they hurt my foot so much. I have these Pastelle ones in nude too and I love them, they are made from butter soft suede and fit me perfectly.
Do you like my suitcases? They were the ones I picked up in yesterdays jumble, at just £2 each they will make the perfect storage for my shoe collection. I have several pairs of flats which don't have boxes so they'll tuck away in there nicely!
I've spent the day laid in my garden (again) and it's been lovely. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend too!

Loved yesterday's frock and today's skirt, so pretty and cool looking!
Those vintage cases are fab, I can't stop buying them. Perfect for storing all manner of clutter!
I'm the opposite with shoes. The only flatties I can bear are flip flops. x
