stylist for a day









Talk about procrastination: I've just whiled away the better part of the afternoon going through the Topshop 'high summer' look book. I set myself three style challenges. While I don't like everything in the collection - the red stuff, for example - I was really inspired by what's on offer, especially the peasant shirt: I had one just like it. I wish I still had it. I've got my sister's, tho: her name tag from Camp Birchwood is still sewn inside, with care, by our mom. Hers (now mine) is white with blue, but mine was almost identical to this one.

I don't like everything matchy matchy, so there's always something in my outfits that is a bit.. off. Wrong. And last but not least: two looks as done by the Topshop stylists. I don't know if the items shown here are available in stores and online just yet, but they will be soon. Okay: NOW I can go out and write! Enough faux styling for one day.

The top left ensemble is to die for. Though I normally refrain from buying in Topshop due to issues with the pricing and sizing I do think that this look is rather lovely. I may attempt to re-create it with some charity shopped items! Pretty sure I've got some vividly blue eye shadow I could bring out though...
