Jump up, jump up, and get down

I think I was having such a nice day that the photo shoot deserved a bit of jumping… my advice is don’t expect your hair to stay tucked inside your hat if you try this at home. It won’t stay there.

This was a very quickly-put-together outfit and to be honest I think I looked a bit of a mess – but it was the weekend and who cares (especially in the country) if you’re not totally co-ordinated. (Roughly translated as: got dressed in the dark.) Well the two stars of today’s outfit are:

  1. My fabulous wedge trainers from Office (£90 down to £28! Total bargain!)
  2. The little necklace – another vintage fair purchase – made out of a Scrabble tile: how cool is that? It’s by Gillybird Jewellery, whose Folksy shop isn’t quite finished yet but I’m keeping an eye and will report back (see them on Facebook in the meantime).

Hope everyone’s having a nice week x
