What I wore Wednesday - 13/06/2012

I have a couple of outfits to "show off" for this week's What I wore Wednesday.

Firstly, if you read my Magpie Monday post this week, you may remember the original '70s scarf I wrote about.  Well, the first outfit I have to share features that:

Cardigan - H&M (ages ago)
Vest top - H&M
Cord Jeggings - New Look (last season)
Scarf - My Mum's from the '70s
Converse trainers

I really enjoyed wearing this outfit.  It's comfortable but it also brightened my day.  I love this cardi with the cloud print and happy sunny yellow.  The scarf is very in your face.  Most of all, I adore my orange Converse.  They are some of the most comfortable shoes I own and always attract comments (some woman was leaning out of her upstairs window shouting out at me the other day when I wore them, going on about how I was brightening up her day LOL!).

The other outfit I wanted to share was what I wore on Saturday just gone when my friend Lucy and I had a girly day out.  We went to a "suitcase sale" in Bristol.  Simple idea, anyone can pay to have a spot, the only limitation is that you can only sell what you can fit into a suitcase.  Suffice to say there were some pretty well stuffed huge suitcases there!  We had a lovely time browsing the "suitcases" and each made a few purchases (will share on another occasion).  I was feeling happy and pretty in my new Primark dress (£5 bargain!) and my fitted jacket.  It was a lovely day out.

Dress - Primark
Jacket - New Look
Tights - New Look
Boots - Wrangler
Bangle - Primark
Ring - H&M (a while ago)
Bag - Marc Jacobs last Autumn

This was another happy making outfit.  Knowing my dress was such a bargain was a real mood booster.  I felt great in it.

Please do pop over to Transatlantic Blonde to see all the other fashionable folks!


  1. Nice ring!! Aww I wish I didnt bite my nails sometimes!

    1. Thank you! I love that ring. It got chipped - you can see in the photo. Luckily it still looks good enough! x

  2. I am in complete love with all of those outfits. I especially love the orange converse. And I will be nipping into Primark to scout out that dress the next time I am in town.

    1. Thank you :) I really do adore my converse. If I could, I'd have a pair in every colour they do. The orange is gorgeous though. You need one of these dresses in your life!! I had no idea it was reduced to £5 until I paid. Love it when that happens! x

  3. Love the H&M cardi - lovely colour of yellow! Glad I came across your blog via Transatlantic Blonde! x

    1. Hi! It's lovely to find new blogs, isn't it! And thank you :) I do love this cardi, it's a lovely colour and a good fit. Always makes me happy when I wear it! x
