Feeling Fluttery


Those who know me personally will be aware of the fact that I'm afraid of butterflies. In fact, I hate any insect that can fly. I'm also not keen on butterflies in jewellery. I just think the butterfly motif is so overused, a bit boring and just a bit cliche now. Having said that, one is always allowed an exception to the rules they create, and here's mine; a rather wonderful long black butterfly necklace. Speaking of things that flutter, I am a fan of clothes that flutter; specifically, fluttery sleeves that move gracefully around your shoulders. This grey top has said sleeves, but is so ridiculously low cut that I have to layer a top underneath it, lest I show too much skin. Rather unusually, I didn't tuck the top into my skirt, something I nearly always do when wearing a skirt. It's nice to have a change now and then! Also worn today is a great pair of loafers I got recently. I like pointy shoes, I like silver shoes, and (currently) I like loafers, so these are pretty much amazing. My hair today was some kind of accidental genius. Somehow, I managed to make a mini-quiff in front of a larger beehive towards the back. Completely unplanned, and I bet I'll never be able to do it again! It was kinda tricky to photograph, but you hopefully get the idea.

Let me just say that I am terrified of anything that flies, too! I get made fun of all the time for it. But I really, really adore that butterfly necklace! I don't know why, but it just absolutely fascinates me.

Wow, that is a very low cut top lol! I have a few tops like that, I don't understand them. It is very cute though!

I LOVE your style! Where do you buy your clothes?

I buy my clothes mainly from regular high-street shops. The rest of my clothes are vintage and come from places like ebay.com and etsy.com. I also like to hunt through charity shops for bargain pieces, but don't often come out with anything amazing. So basically, I get my clothes from all over the place! Thanks for commenting Sam :)
