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!

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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 😀

  4. the collar is so pretty! lovely outfit!
    aww so glad you and your friends have reconciled after 10 years! such a long time! i felt really emotional when reading that! almost tear'ed up ahaha!

  5. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. I adore that necklace. So jealous you get to go to the lookshow :'( and be on the front line too. Im hoping to win tickets, its the day after my bday and how amazing of a present would that be!
    Cannot wait to hear your exciting news 🙂 and its so nice to hear about your friend. Theres people I wish I was closer too :/ but people change xxx

  9. 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

  10. 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!

    (26? get out.)

  11. 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 🙂

  12. 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!


  13. :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?

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Aww, I'm happy you and your friend made up! It is always nice to have a friend back in your life 🙂 I'm sure you will have many new adventures in friendship moving forward!

    Love the color on that top! My goodness, you always wear the most adorable things!

  17. That collar is so delicate and pretty!

    Thanks for the advice on the camera! think im going to check out ebay and try the 'learn as i go along' method! lol


  18. Firstly you look stunning as always !! Love that top and mega congrats on going through to the top peeps for the Look show 🙂 you have earned it kitten. You will love it I went last year and it was amazing. Look forward to reading your posts fir it xxxx

  19. i love your top with the floral collar!! so pretty!!! and congrats on getting top 5!!!! woot woot!!
    and i'm happy for you that you were able to reconcile with your friend!! that's great that theres finally closure! rest well!!! or eat an apple a day and maybe your cold will go away!!

  20. 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

  21. 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!

  22. 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

  23. 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

  24. 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.

  25. 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

  26. 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 🙂

  27. 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!


  28. 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

  29. 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 🙂

  30. 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!
