Outfit: Pleats And Plaits

So, we have all been waiting for the sun to shine – but June is almost over and it’s still cold and windy. Yesterday was just as dull and these quick snaps were taken just before it was about to pour down with rain. In my last post, I showed you the floral headband (which doubles up as a wrap around bracelet) so here I am wearing it both ways. I had been looking for a subtle one but after having no luck, I decided to make my own. I wanted one that I could wear without feeling a bit self conscious!

I keep forgetting to mention it but I won the Look Mag weekly style competition – here’s the link to their page. Thank you to everyone who voted for me.

How is everyone’s summer so far? Since buying the Dawson’s Creek box set three years ago, I make it an annual ritual to watch it back to back at this time of year. No particular reason, really. I just feel the need to reunite with the gang during the summer. (I talk about them as if know them!) I was obsessed with it when I was a teenager, I recorded it on VHS and watched it every day. So watching it now really takes me back!

A simpler time before DVD’s, ipods, mobile phones, texting, Facebook, and hair straighteners! Evidently, Joey Potter’s hair is mental in season one. I’m on series 3 at the moment, Joey’s hair is straight. This must have been when straighteners were invented! No more Dorito head! Huzzah!

  1. I got absolutely soaked on the way back from work today, so a dvd boxset seems very fitting right now. Those rings are fabulous and I do like your hair style – very pretty. Love from (rainy) London xo

  2. The skirt is so lovely, and the yellow nail varnish is jealousy-inducing. Might just have to go out and buy one!

    I'm a bit of a Veronica Mars junkie, that's what I turn to over and over again and watch all the way through!

  3. I love it worn as a bracelet! Looks so delicate and pretty. And your skirt is lovely too. Missguided are doing very well at the mo.

  4. Hehehe "Dorito Head"- that's so funny! I totally know what you mean though. You can tell from my school pictures the year when I got a hair straightener, because all the years before that I was definitely a dorito head. I love this post and your pretty jewelry!

  5. Loving everything about this outfit. Very pretty and feminine. From the braid and rosebud crown in your hair to the pleated skirt and peter pan collared blouse. I think it's nifty that the headband also doubles as a bracelet.

    Haven't watched Dawson's Creek in so long. Loved that show along with Felicity.

    PS- Congrats on winning the Look Mag win!

  6. Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! I love this outfit so much. Your pleated skirt looks great with the cute peter pan collared top. Awesome array of accessories too! So many pretty rings and a really fun nail color too!

  7. Love the hair-it's so cute! I'm a big fan of the pink and gold princess ring too 🙂
    Its such a shame about the weather, every year there is a big hype and its just always a bit of a chilly, cloudy let-down! Can you tell I need a holiday haha?!

    this outfit is so beautiful and elegant on you, i am OBSESSED with black bows on shirts and the rings are beautiful xox

  10. Seriously, your braids are so cute. I love your hair colour and those nails too! I don't own an yellow polish but I feel that I must! What brand and colour is it?

  11. I've been watcing lots of Pushing Daisies – I'm on about episode 4 or 5 of season 2 – seriously need to slow down a bit otherwise there won't be any more to watch lol.

    Ned and Chuck are so cute 🙂

  12. Particularly love the floral headband come bracelet- I might try a little DIY of my own but not sure if the end result will be as cute as yours, so I might just buy yours.

  13. It is quite depressing that it's nearly the end of June and the sun still isn't shining. I can definitely relate. I love the versatility of the headband/bracelet! Great idea.

  14. Congrats on winning the competition sweetie, it couldn't happen to a nicer girl. 🙂

    And I am loving how crafty you are in making things. I am such a dud, and would probably never be able to make anything for myself to wear in this lifetime ever hehe.
