Shut the door to the moon...






                           (Dress-Urban Outfitters  Cardigan-Rat and Boa  Shoes-River Island)


I am in complete dread about checking my bank statement this month - it has been a heavy month for the credit card due to holiday funding and one thing and another, I certainly didn't help matters when I ended up splurging £400 quid in Urban Outfitters as I was just passing by the other day, I wouldn't mind if I actually bought substantial items but the majority of it went on unicorns, hip flasks, cute cards and make up bags. I am a complete sucker for gimmicks and novelty items, anything that adds a bit of sparkle or tackiness to my bedroom and I'm game! 

Whilst on my novelty spree I did manage to pick up this adorable little dress, during the week I don't like to have to do too much thinking about what to wear, so I'm a big fan of dresses, practical ones at that, maxi or midi are perfect. You get a little chilly you can throw a jumper on and wear it like a skirt, simple dressing is sometimes the best. I guess an outfit wouldn't be complete without a hint of crochet, I wear this flimsy cardigan so much more than I ever imagined I would, it seems to go with nearly all my dresses and I love it as I do all of Rat and Boa's items. 

The shoes - I saw them on the internet and wanted them loads and loads but they only had them in stock in white - as gorgeous as they were I wanted something that I could practically throw on with everything, so basic black.. after searching 3 River Island stores I nearly gave up on these bad boys but the store in Liverpool came through for me which I'm so glad about because they are a perfect sandal going into Autumn. 

Also... check out River Island Jewellery at the moment, some of the most amazing pieces, this necklace in my post has little moons and stars dangling off and I stocked up on a whole load of other really amazing neck pieces.. seriously impressed! 

I'm off to Ibiza in the morning so being completely uncharacteristically organised I am packed and ready to roll so tonight I plan to have my first glass of sangria and get in the holiday spirit...OLAY!
