On her Hampton blouse

Shirt - Zara || Leggings - ASOS || Sandals - Zara || Bag - Zara

Photos are interesting things. You can take a seemingly normal photo and moments later, everything can change and all you have is that photo to look back on and think "wow, can't believe I had no idea what was about to happen." What I'm trying to say is, seconds after these outfit photos were taken, I dropped my iPhone and cracked the bloody glass screen!!! To say I'm gutted is an understatement because in the six years of having such a delicate phone, I've been so careful. Yes, it's the most trivial first world problem but for such an expensive (and beautiful) device, you can't help but be annoyed. Don't ever be a gimp like me and think "the iPhone is too beautiful to be covered with a case". Get a case!! I'm going to be without phone for a few days while I send it off to be repaired. It'll be interesting to see how I cope since I'm very much an 'iPhone, therefore I am' kind of person.

ANYWAY, onto my new purchases. I wanted these sandals a while ago but they sold out before I could get my hands on them. Luckily for me, they turned up in the online sale. The metal bar on the front matches the silver hardware on my Zara bag too! Matchy, matchy. I'm not a sandal person really (hate feet), so I'm thinking that now I have a simple black and a white pair, I'm set for life.

The shirt I also picked up in the sale. It's silky, ivory and has just enough detail to not make it boring. Check, check and check. The dark red piping and woven detail on the collar and cuffs have an oriental pyjama vibe and I have a feeling it's going to be a staple shirt for the next few months.


  1. You look nice as usual!
    Awww boo about your iPhone screen
    really :c

  2. Love the shirt!
    I cracked my iPhone screen too, and because i didn't want to be without it i just lived with my cracked screen for 5 months or so! haha

  3. I really like the sandals! Everythime I drop my phone I say a little prayer just hoping that the screen is not broken lol

  4. haha ohhh no, i'd be so upset too :( that's why i don't have a smart phone- i'm a total clutz and would probably break it every two months!

  6. I am totally in love with your blouse, it really is gorgeous!

    Meanwhile, I know what you mean - something big chances and you think back to when you had no idea it was going to happen...! I'm sorry your phone is cracked!
