This is me with the two paintings that my dad currently has displayed:
Please excuse my crazy lion woman hair. It is both uncontrollable and inexplicable.
And this is my dad with his pictures:
Today I wore: faux fur jacket - vintage, black scarf - a gift, jeans - topshop, boots - charity shop, t-shirt - Old Navy.
This is one of my favourite t-shirts that I own; I bought it from Old Navy in Manhattan a couple of years ago when I was there in the summer, and I still love it now. It's just so random, and of course I love a good monocle.
While we were in Bridlington's Old Town - which is such a sadly unheralded little part of England, with the old priory church and pretty shop fronts and tiny art galleries and antique shops that nobody ever goes to - I did a small bit of shopping. I'm living on a serious budget at the moment with Christmas coming up and a trip to Ireland to pay for, so spending is limited only to bus fares and university books, but the two things I bought today I could not resist. Both were from antique shops and both were only THREE POUNDS EACH.
First was this little silver ring. I mentioned the other day that I wanted more rings, and while this wasn't exactly the thing I had in mind, it's still very pretty and looks good with the other ones I wear every day (I'm mixing silver and gold at the moment, which I have always been heartily against, but is inevitable now I'm wearing all the family heirlooms).
The second thing I found was this skirt:
I assure you, it is a much nicer colour in person, and it is the perfect Zara-lookbook/Alexa-Chung-for-Madewell length that I have been searching for but have not been able to afford. This will certainly be apearing in an outfit post very, very soon.
