Miss Coquines Shoes

My sister came across this site called Miss Coquines, and said she's been a little addicted to the shoes they sell. When I took a look myself, I saw why. They have a good selection of unique shoes and the trainer my sister got were so eye-catching. Miss Coquines also have a blog. Here's some of my favourites...

Monochrome Wedge Court Shoes with Gold Union Jack Detail  [ HERE ]

Floral Lace Trainers [ HERE ]

Monochrome Lace-Up Ankle Trainers with Decorative Zip [ HERE ]

Low Heel Lace-Up Trainers [ HERE ]

Also, on a different note...

Vagabond Dioon Plain Chelsea Boots [ HERE ]

Did I mention my slight addiction with chelsea boots? No? Well.... that's a post for another day.

If Princesses Were Bloggers

A long time ago, I came across the post If Princesses Were Bloggers on the Free Fall Feather blog. The style is very different to what I usually like, but I was mesmerised by the following image;

Summer Colours

My ideal summer colours are bright or pastel colours, preferably bright as I prefer pastels for spring. Okay, that's a fib, I'll wear pastels any time. But I say it because, for example, I would much prefer mint green to bright green, which can be really gaudy. However, Emerald Green is a lovely colour for summer.

BRIGHT COLOURS for summer: Pink, Orange, Yellow, Blue

And this is the reason I regard green very cautiously.

Sandals For Summer Holiday Travels

When this is published, I'll be on holiday in Cyprus!!! Please enjoy this pre-scheduled post.

As I may have mentioned, I'm going on holiday in less than two weeks =] I'm super excited because this is something I pretty much never do. GOODBYEEEE BORING LONDON! (I'll be missing home by the time it's over, heh.) So, and I don't know how, I STILL have no pairs of sandals e_e

I've already posted about hunting for the right sandals. I've finally got some now! For real!


- cannot separate my toes.
- MUST be easy to slip on and off. Seriously. NO buckles, NO tie ups, NO strappy crap. Meh.
- must be a bright colour. It's SUMMER! =]
- preferably flat.
- not a fan of my toes so don't want them completely bare, but not covered either, I guess that would defeat the point of 'sandals'.

This is what I bought!

1) River Island
White Chunky Strap Cleated Sole Sandals [ Here ]

Cost: £38.00
Colour: White.
Purpose: a good pair of sandals to wear with pretty much anything - short skirts, loose trousers, kaftans, all my maxi stuff, even skinny jeans, whatever really. This was a really bizarre pick for me because I NEVER wear stuff like this. I usually find them really unattractive!! But this caught my eye when I was out with Miss Lovely, I tried it on and thought WOW. The stock picture really doesn't do it justice so here's some of my own;

Similar Alternatives:

Browse the River Island search - white shoes, size 8 .

2) Crocs
Crocs Huarache Flat Fuchsia/Grapefruit [ Here ]

Cost: £34.99
Colour: Pink, Orange and yellow. perfect.
Purpose: to wear with my maxi dresses and skirts, maybe down to the beach. EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY comfortable. I've never had Crocs before (the standard ones I find ugly. Sorry, but it's true!). I never knew Crocs were so satisfying for the feet :3

Similar Alternatives:



Browse the search - eBay | Amazon | Crocs

3) Primark
Bow Mule Nude Sandals [ - ]

Cost: £2.50
Colour: Nude/Beige
Purpose: flip-flop substitute (I don't like actual flip-flops, may have guessed from the Criteria above...). Something cheap to wear to the beach, my sister said, so I wouldn't ruin my two other good pairs of sandals. Primark Sandals - reliably cheap.

My first choice were these New Look sandals, £17.99, very cute, though I would say a little expensive considering that there isn't much to them.

What are your favourite pairs of sandals like? :3

Summer Tops Haul

When this is published, I'll be on holiday in Cyprus!!! Please enjoy this pre-scheduled post.

I really felt that I didn't have any nice summer tops to wear, and soo I may or may not have strolled into Primark and did a £34(!) shop. I only had ten minutes before work to get what I wanted, so I decided to make my final decision at home and return whatever wasn't suitable.

I got really fed up taking these pictures so be glad you got this post at all! Urgh, all that trying on and taking off and fake posing was getting on my nerves.

Atmosphere Pink Checkered Gingham Chiffon-Front Tee - £6
Taking this back. I looked gorgeous on the Primark hanger... but not on me and not even on my hanger ._.

Atmosphere White LW Raglan Shirt - £6
This is so lovely and light, wonderful for hot weather. Though as you can see, it's dangerously see through. I wised up and put on a vest for this, should've have done the same for the t-shirt below...

Atmosphere <3 LA Sublimation Roll Sleeve Tee - £5
This is a lo t like that other £22 top I wanted so badly from River Island, the road with the heart on it [ HERE ] but I was having doubts by the time I went back and I love this one just as much. I'm glad I essentially got what I wanted and saved 17 quid.

Navy and White satin colour blouse - £5
This one was great because it's so versatile and the panelling is really neat. I wish the navy was purple or pink, but meh, can't complain.

Brooklyn city slogan sweater - £3 (on offer from £8)
As you have have noticed, I don't wear clothes with words or slogans on them anymore, but this one I couldn't resist. I do wish it didn't say Brooklyn, but I don't mind as much because the pastel blue and pink with a splash of white is to die for. And I know I shouldn't be buying winter clothes now but... hey. Three pounds. Couldn't resist.

Lilac V Neck Garment - £4
Yeah, this is the visible bra wardrobe malfunction. I just couldn't even be bothered. To top it off, the tag said something about a colour transfer when you wear it, either that or the dye possibly coming out when you wash it. WHAT?! It's barely lilac as it is!

Gooodbyeeeeee. You're going straight back to the store.

Socks. Because... why not? c: I LOVE PRETTY SOCKS!

And here's a little something I bought from H&M to wear over my swimsuit on holiday or just to wear whenever really. God, I'm really not fashion-savvy. (e_e)

I hope my dear and loyal readers are enjoying the summer. I shall be posting soooooon!
