This outfit consists of all of my favourites at the moment. My boots have been worn to death since I bought them as they literally go with everything and as a plus, add an extra inch to my 5"2 height! I have also worn the top to death too! I love how the stripes are vertical on the back and horizontal on the front, and the way it hangs due to the kind of silky (that and cotton are the only materials I know...so it definitely isn't silky) material.
My scarf (also been worn to death) is something I wear proudly simply because it took me over a month to find. I had seen it in store and one of my uni friends had it, and I always looked at it lovingly! However I did the typical me thing and decided I really wanted it after it had sold out in store. So i trailed markets and every online fashion retailer for one similar, but no, nothing as nice as this. Then I found it on eBay (after typing 'tartan check scarf' every day for a month'). I was so excited that this scarf could finally be mine as i was entering my stingy bid of £2.50. Then it happened...AN EBAY TROLL was the previous bidder, and immediately he was outbidding me by £1.00. I don't usually quit, but there was no chance I was winning.
Luckily it reappeared on eBay a week later and it was mine for £0.99. Absolute bargin.  

What do you think about my recent finds? Have you ever been that persistent because you just need something in your life?

P.S if you have a minute, i'd be super happy if you could nominate my blog for 'best personal style' in the Company Style Blogger Awards here

P.P.S apologies for the picture quality, it was super sunny!
