Recent Purchases: Cute and Colourful
Hello my lovelies! With the fervent chirping of the birds and the new buds blooming amongst the grass, it can only mean one thing - it's March and spring has finally sprung! It's so refreshing to finally be shedding my winter skin i.e. the copious amount of layers I've taken to wearing on a daily basis for surviving the whipping winds and frosty mornings. With the sun finally peaking its head through the clouds, I've decided to infuse my wardrobe with a few new spring bits and pieces. I love that the instant spring comes around, the darker tones we've become so accustomed to wearing, melt away and make way for prettier pastel colours.
This mouth watering bag caught my eye a while ago as I was perusing through the magical Modcloth. Having always adored the novelty bag craze, it was love at first sight. I can just about imagine myself come summer walking the beach with this bag by my side, slurping on a Mr Whippy ice cream cone. If you're the kind of person who likes to store everything but the kitchen sink in your bag, then this cute cone probably isn't for you, fitting no more than my phone and my purse inside. But don't let that deter you, this delicious bag is perfect for spring and summer, adding a bit of oomph to any outfit.
Say hello to my new favourite item of clothing. This one of a kind rainbow cardigan is what dreams are made of, I honestly can't stop staring at it *insert heart eyes emoji here*. I dug out this beauty from the vintage treasure trove Waiste, and snapped it up before anyone else could get their grubby paws on it. It boasts an oversize fit but is so comfy and cosy I envisage that I'll be wearing it all throughout spring, you should probably just rename me 'Claire and her Amazing Technicolour Dream Cardigan'. Owned and operated by beautiful fellow blogger Sara of waiste.blogspot.co.uk, I've been buying off Waiste for quite some time, with so many unique items, you're guaranteed to bag yourself something magical.
And last but certainly not least, I picked up this delicious doughnut necklace from I Love Crafty. With its unbearably cute sprinkles, and glorious glaze, it's been hard not to nibble away at it! Ever since spying those stunning shell necklaces that say 'I'm Really A Mermaid' I've been dying to get my hands on a laser cut piece of jewellery. Opting for something sweet from I Love Crafty's doughnut range, I just love how kitsch they look and how they can add that extra bit of quirkiness to even the drabbest of outfits. This little necklace will go perfectly with my ice cream bag, together making one hell of a yummy combination!
