June Diary

Friday, June 28, 2013

To be honest, June really hasn't been my month! Between my mother - who doubles as my photographer and expert hairdresser - injured her hands (thus no new outfit posts), my dog got scratched on the eye and I had to get up every two hours to help give her medicine, which then made me spiral into having a terrible sleeping schedule, having a few dissapointments come my way happen all this month - I'm somewhat happy to say goodbye to June :c

Since I am desperately behind in posts and miss you all so terribly, I thought I'd share some pictures of the highlights in an effort to end this month on a positive note!

We'll start with a few cute outfits I was able to document thanks to my trusty webcam for now - you can expect proper outfit posts this July!


Wearing: Target sweater & necklace by We Were Warriors* // thrifted pinafore

Gingham bralet, $5 on sale at Charlotte Russe // top from Sheinside*, skirt by Lashes of London*

Tiny Tangerines pins // hair puff by the incredible Pop That Cassette*

Dreamy rainboots by Chicwish* // ice cream hair clip by Twinkie Chan

Reading & loving ASOS' Fashion Up with the wonderful Kilo Kish on the cover & my new Lazy Oaf cat socks // various mermaid accessories - necklaces by I Love Crafty*, pin by Cake Eater, & meowmaid by The Albino Hare*

Please tell me how your June was - and here's hoping I have better luck this July! ;) ♡♡♡

I love seeing these little pictures of what you've been up to (and omg that PINAFORE is AMAZING. You look like a little doll in it!). Keep your chin up, lovely! Things can only get better from here, right? :)

  52. Ahh, so many cute things! I have a similar shell purse (mine is silver!) that I got off ebay, but sadly, it's not in that great of condition. I do love it, however! I wish I could wear it with more outfits, but it's so tiny!
