Wings


"Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that."-unknown

*I have officially come to the conclusion that I am pretty rubbish at doing outfit photos. I can't even sum up the courage to pose outdoors, but also due to the incredible heat right now, I risk my health. (I get burnt so easily and already have been twice this summer) Complaints aside, I none the less wanted to share with you this outfit. I'm not normally one for denim shirts, but after being inspired by this, I added a little DIY embellishments to a top which came from my mothers closet. All the beads and lace were hand sewn. Oh and isn't the above quote so lovely? I think we all need to remember how beautiful we are.

P.S I am now back at school, my very last year and probably wont be posting as regularly. Adieu, adieu for now dears

  1. Ohh, that is just lovely! I'm not usually a big fan of denim tops either, but this one is so cute! I love the lace especially and the way it goes with your skirt in a subtle way :)
    I know what you mean about the heat too. It's ridiculous! We played Lacrosse today and I swear my face was melting off hehe
    Lucky! I started up school last Wednesday... I still hadn't had enough holidays.
    Beautiful butterfly pictures too, are they part of your collection?

  6. I'll miss your lovely posts, your world is so full of light and all the simple treasures, and reminds me of things like Beatrix Potter. At least we still have our letters, I'm doing a little something extra special so please forgive the slight delay of words dearest. I hope your school goes well!

    P.S. Adorable top, you're nothing but talented!

  7. I knew you added the lace parts even before reading it, it's such a tempting idea, adding a bit of ourselves into the things we like to make them even more ours. The outfit looks so lovely and so do you, dear^^
    The quote is a special one for sure, i wish we could all remember that when we need the most.
    Good luck with your last year of school!^^
