Stars, stripes and sequins

Jumper and necklace - Forever 21
Jeans - New Look
Top [unseen] - H&M

I was thinking of trying throw the odd OOTD posts into LOTS, don't fear my blog will never become totally about clothes because I'm not that fashion geeky enough, but probably good to mention it every now and again especially now I have a tripod. I fell in love with Forever 21 whilst in London for my adventures to get my visa and now it's predominately the only shop I buy clothes from [I'm finding it hard to adapt to American clothing - it seems a little behind the times when comparing it to the UK scene] and Forever21 seem to offer quirky things. H&M is a bit of a drive away and Forever 21 is within walking distance so it's my favorite haunt. I picked this jumper up on my first shopping trip after getting here, the slight cheesiness and the total overload of sequins won me over. I never really use to be a jumper fan, they never seemed to suit me till I found the over sized cropped look, oh and I use to hate wearing rings too, but these two [engagement and wedding band] make me pleased as punch.

Have a lovely weekend guys, we're off for a curry tonight and I'll be spending the rest of the forthcoming days fighting my urge for new tattoos.

  1. I love that jumper so much, the sequins really make it and so what if it's a little cheesy, it's perfect :) xxx

  3. Your wedding band and engagement ring look amazing. Very pretty and simple. I adore simple wedding bands, though it took ages to find mine because places only seem to sell the fancy pants ones.
    I also love the jumper. Sometimes we all need a bit of cheese. x

    1. Yeah I found it hard getting my engagement ring because up until then I never really wore a ring, I just wanted something simple. The wedding band was a gift from Joe's gran which his grandad had brought her so I love the sentiment and the story behind it. It's a very treasured piece.
