Floral Collar

Another top with another fancy collar. The pink top is from TopShop and it also comes in coral. The nail colour is Orange Soda by 17 (Boots). I’m wearing my Keep Calm necklaces which is slightly different to the ones on the website. The necklaces got more press coverage on the NOW Mag website which was exciting!
Right now, I refuse to acknowledge that it is now September. But my body couldn’t wait because it appears to be thinking “it’s September now, time for a cold!”. I have got a sore throat and I feel a cold is definitely coming on!

    Love that outfit – that is sooo cute. And your back garden always looks so pretty and sunny – mines all rain!! xxxxxxxxxx

    omg it looks so gorgeous! I love these shots of photos and your lipstick colour is so pretty :3

  3. 6th September 2011 / 1:50 pm

    This outfit is perfection, the top is the prettiest thing and the colour suits you so well! Sorry to hear you're not feeling well- its still roasting hot in Malta but my boyfriend has been struck down by flu- must be something in the air. I really hope you feel better soon.

    That's so lovely that you met up with your old friend and got past your differences. I'd love to do the same with some people, maybe now I'll take that chance! xx

    Congratulations on the Now Mag mention. I'm dead proud of ya 🙂 I didn't realise we were the same age. Its such an encouraging thought that you are both friends again after such a long time being apart.

    I love the collar on that top.

  5. 6th September 2011 / 2:27 pm

    Such a pretty top and love your accessories, as always.
    Glad you made up with that friend. I think it takes a lot of courage to contact the person, talk things out and apologize. Now you've got your buddy again 😀

    love this outfit. I was the same with my best friend; we didnt speak for 4 years then bumped into each other one day and sorted everything out. So glad you and your friend have done the same

  11. 6th September 2011 / 3:29 pm

    You are so beautiful, I don't think there's an outfit in the world that wouldn't suit you! That top is so lovely, the collar is perfectly delicate and the colour is gorgeous.

    I'm so happy that you managed to patch things up with your friend. Even though it took some time, better late than never as they say!


    P.S. Never are you 26! You're going to be one of those lucky people that will look fresh faced forever!

  12. 6th September 2011 / 4:07 pm

    awwh so glad you've managed to become friends again after such a long time. i guess it doesn't really matter in the long run about what you've missed out on, just think of the next 10 years ahead! lots more time to make up on memories. you look beautiful, as always. love the collar of the top. defs right up my street! x

  13. 6th September 2011 / 4:22 pm

    Gorgeous outfit, I really love your lace collar and the way you styled it 🙂

    & I bet it was great meeting up with her again after all those years. 🙂


  15. 6th September 2011 / 4:40 pm

    AH I saw this in topshop and fell in love, it looks so good on you!
    Also I'm sorry you missed out on ten years of friendship, I have a friend who's so stubborn and has pushed out one of my closest friends because of something TINY they did when they were 11! It's such a shame :/ I'm glad you met up and had a good time though 🙂 x

  16. 6th September 2011 / 4:56 pm

    This is so lovely and elegant! This is the first time I've stumbled across your blog – it's so pretty hehe. Also, really love your hair colour!


  17. 6th September 2011 / 4:58 pm

    I love this. You look amazing and your outfit is just prefect! :))

  18. 6th September 2011 / 4:59 pm

    Lovely outfit as usual! super cuteee. I hope you have a great time at the Look show, you deserve it & all good things too. 🙂

    Ugghh september. I bought my first knitwear of the season today, kinda depressed me haha.

    I had a similar thing happen with me and my best friend at high school too! It didn't last as long as yours, a couple years maybe, but now we talk often. I still love her to bits , but unfortunately I understand about missing out on a chunk of time with them, as you mature a lot in the years after high school and can be a different person afterwards! I'm glad you got back in touch & met up 🙂 girl power!

    There is so much to catch up on, but now there is a lot more to look forward to. I hope this inspires others to do the same 🙂

  22. 6th September 2011 / 6:05 pm

    Ahh I have to get this top! I'm obsessed with peter pan collars and anything crocheted :)xoxo

  23. 6th September 2011 / 6:16 pm

    This is the cutest outfit! Glad you and your friend are speaking again.. when you are young you don't realise consequences, and are usually too stubborn to make things right, so don't dwell on the past look forward to the future 🙂



  24. 6th September 2011 / 6:19 pm

    that collar is so beautiful! I love your necklace at all; I NEED one x

  25. 6th September 2011 / 6:31 pm

    Congrats again on the Look Final 5. I'm happy you and your friend have made up, you might have missed a lot but think about the memories you can make in the coming years,

  26. 6th September 2011 / 6:47 pm

    Oh wow, this is gorgeous Sarah! That must be incredibly weird seeing someone as a teenager, then not seeing them for 10 years and suddenly they've grown up!


  29. 6th September 2011 / 7:36 pm

    Saw this top in Topshop the other day, it's beautiful!

  30. 6th September 2011 / 7:41 pm

    I swear all of your clothes are amazingly pretty.
    I'm not jealous…no, course not

    :O I think this might be the top which is finally going to be my first collar/short/blouse type purchase (I'm scared of anything which isn't a tank top or a strapless bandeau). It's so beautiful! xxxx

    It makes me pleased to hear that you've made up with one of your best friends after so long. I've recently fallen out with one of mine and it's giving me a glimmer of hope. I miss her so much, but she doesn't seem to want to mend things :((. Manybe in 10 years time, who knows?

  32. 6th September 2011 / 7:59 pm

    That top is so cute! At the moment I'm a little bit obsessed with orange so I would love the coral version.
    It's lovely to restart friendships. I bumped into a friend I hadn't seen in four years in a very different city from the one we grew up together but happened to be on holiday there at the same time. It was wonderful!

  33. 6th September 2011 / 8:10 pm

    love your outfit, the floral collar is gorgeous! xx

  34. 6th September 2011 / 8:29 pm

    I love your top and I'm so glad to hear that you and your friend have made up, its nice to hear a happy story 🙂 X

  35. 6th September 2011 / 8:34 pm

    Lovely outfit, I'm addicted to cute collars! I love the ring with the heart on too. Glad to hear you made up with your friend. x

  36. 6th September 2011 / 8:38 pm

    Really love your outfit here, the top is so pretty. Saw your necklaces in Now the other week and have put them on my wishlist! I've a threatening cold too, despite the fact I had one about a month ago. I teach, so being back in amongst all the students' germs always hits me had when we start back after summer – rubbish.

    You look so beautiful in these pictures. The top really suits you and compliments your complexion so well.
    Thats lovely that you got the chance to meet up and chat to your old friend. I have an old friend like that and I often wonder if meeting up would be worthwhile.
    P.S. You look a lot younger than 26 (not that 26 is old.)xx

  52. 7th September 2011 / 9:18 am

    I can't get over your outfits! You dress perectly and I'm greeeeeeeen with envy! This top is beautiful and I love your jewellery. x

  53. 7th September 2011 / 9:45 am

    Oooo, I love that floral collar. It definitely adds a bit extra to the whole look. And I love your rings.
    Hope your cold doesn't come on too strong!

  55. 7th September 2011 / 11:32 am

    Such a pretty outfit, I especially like the necklace 🙂

    Really hope it all goes well with you and your friend! I've had a similar experience falling out with my old best friend a few years ago – hopefully now we've both grown up, we can reconcile in a few years as well. x

  56. 7th September 2011 / 1:03 pm

    The little floral collar is the cutest thing ever. I've also developed a cold, I can't handle it! Surely it's too early?!

  57. 7th September 2011 / 4:54 pm

    lovely outfit, that collar is gorgeous! It's great you've reconnected with your friend- I had a similar falling out with one of my best friends, we didn't talk for 3 years which we both regretted! xx

  58. 7th September 2011 / 4:58 pm

    Love love love this top! The collar is so gorgeous! You look lovely as usual. Well done with all the press coverage, you really deserve it girl! xx

  61. 7th September 2011 / 6:53 pm

    all your photos are beautiful!! love the shots of your hands beacuse of the bright nail varnishes and beautiful jewellery!! 😉

  62. 7th September 2011 / 7:42 pm

    I know that feeling about meeting a friend for the first time in years – so many questions run through your head. Mine were what if she doesn't like who I've become, what if I don't like who she has become, is it weird to ask to hang out again etc etc lol. Luckily me and my friend just lost touch rather than falling out, however it had been like 8 years, I'd been to uni and she was part way through uni and things like that.

  63. 7th September 2011 / 9:38 pm

    This top is fantastic, you look perfect as always


  64. 7th September 2011 / 10:07 pm

    That top is gorgeous! I love how the collar is made up of flowers, I think little details like that really make a difference 🙂 Congrats on all the mentions! You deserve it xx

  65. 8th September 2011 / 1:57 am

    The collar is so pretty and dainty.

  66. 8th September 2011 / 6:50 am

    amazing outfit! your shirt is adorable!

  67. 8th September 2011 / 8:06 am

    This top is sooo pretty! That's really lovely about your friend – don't focus on the time you've missed out on, there's nothing you can do about it – just focus on the time you can now spend together 🙂

  68. 8th September 2011 / 11:33 am

    I love your top and that fancy collar, so cute! Your taste in nail polish color seems quite similar to mine:)

    Good to hear you reunited with an old friend. I know how that feels, it's happened to me too. Hope you guys will have a bright friendship ahead then Sarah=D

    Btw, great to see u being featured on Clothing from Tesco twitter:) You deserve it,hehe…great style indeed!


  69. 8th September 2011 / 11:36 am

    Aw, so glad you and your friend have made amends – you may have missed out on ten years but you've plenty of time to make up for it! 🙂

    Beautiful top; love the collar, and I love your nails too. Lovely! x

  70. 8th September 2011 / 1:32 pm

    what lovely necklaces – would it be ok to feature one on my wishlist post sometime?
    And i think it's great that you have managed to put the past behind you and still maintain a friendship with this girl 🙂

  71. 8th September 2011 / 1:41 pm

    I've not seen my old best friend since about 2003 even though I've thought about her on a weekly basis ever since. Never had such a good friend since 🙁 Maybe I should send her a facebook message or something.

    Side note – love the green ring!

  72. 8th September 2011 / 2:39 pm

    This is a really beautiful top – I must check out the new Topshop collections!

  73. 8th September 2011 / 4:32 pm

    That collar is lovely! Heading to Topshop tomorrow so I will definitely be keeping a look out for it methinks!

  74. 8th September 2011 / 4:40 pm

    Great outfit, love the collars! Its enver too late to make amends with someone! x

  75. 10th September 2011 / 11:57 am
