A hint of school-girl

Cannot sing the praises of Pop Boutique enough. AWESOME store. Please, anyone with a stroke of interest in fashion must go there - it's an absolute gold-mine of quirky, vintage pieces. At the Manchester store, I was lucky enough to stumble across a dogtooth pinafore (yippee).
(It was a bit of a blustery day for photo-taking, so there are more than a few stray hairs flying about...)



Collar tips:

I really enjoyed wearing this outfit, actually. I love a good crisp-white shirt, me, plus I felt a bit cheeky in a pinafore - took me back to my Infant School days (oh, those were the times).

Anyways, must dash, I've got a recorded episode of The White Queen beckoning me...

Thirty degrees in long sleeves?

Sorry folks - it has yet again been a while since my last post! I've just spent a fabulous week studying at Oxford University, living the life of a German undergrad (thanks to the wonderful UNIQ, who organised the summer school). The academic programme and city alike were just wonderful - I managed to get some really lovely photos (see below!).

I'm loving the weather in England at the moment - currently enjoying temperatures of around thirty degrees (Celsius, that is). Hot, but nice. You won't find me complaining. Although I will admit to being a little too hot in this dress, but as evening-wear it's perfect. And I can finally whip out the straw hat (hurrah)!

Dress: Asos
Shoes: Clarks
Necklace: vintage
Belt: River Island

And here are some of the Oxford pictures (I'm to the far right, in the white docs)!

I'm off again at the weekend to stay in an eco-lodge in the Yorkshire Dales (I've heard it's beautiful). I'm planning on being the full tree-hugging type for the week by avoiding technology, so I will try to post before I go away, but if not, I'll not be away for that long.

Over and out,
