rust.




New Look Jumper//H&M Top, Shorts & Turquoise Ring//Topshop Skull Ring.

MY VANS! and my cankles. I wore this outfit in Brighton when we went out for tea. The shorts I actually wore are in the wash because i wiped my lipstick hands on them. Sick. But I thought I would reenact the outfit for y'all. These shorts are from last year and they are so tiny! I actually got a 12 instead of an 8... but technically still a 10 as H&M size their clothing wrong, anyone else ever notice this? They label a 10 as 36 but 36 is an 8 in all other clothing. I always ignore the clothes sizing in shops to be honest otherwise it just gets depressing.

I got this jumper in the New Look sale! I love it so much, I actually saw it on Stephanie and thought she looked so cute. It cost me a whole 12 buck which is a good deal.

I have quite a few rings, but I hardly ever wear them. I like to wash my hands a lot (creepy) and they get in the way. I don't know what I'll do if I ever get engaged... wear it round my neck? Put it in my shoe? Who knows. The turquoise one is from H&M, and quite similar to the ones that a lot of people are selling through their jewellery blog shops.

This is going to be my "live in" outfit for the next few months. Bare legs, vans and a big jumper!

  2. Such a cute outfit. Love the vans and big jumper look. The skull ring is also very cool.
    I find that with H&Ms sizing too, but I generally ignore the sizes too.

  3. Love this top! And ughh H&M sizing is ridiculous, I swear I can be an XS in tops (there's no way I'm an XS, even on my 'skinny' days!) and a 14 in jeans. I always end up trying three sizes on anyway, so I generally tend to grab whatever looks like it'd fit and hope for the best! x

  10. Love this, the jumper and shorts look great and liking your Vans on too.

    H&M don't so much size "wrong" but they size for Germany. European sizing (ie 36,38,40) etc isn't the same across Europe- a 36 in France/Spain is an 8 but in Germany it's a 6.

  12. Whaaaaaat H&M size their clothes wrong???? So i've been fitting into a size 8 all this time? This calls for a celebration - i'm hitting up the cheap easter eggs! :) X

  13. lovely jumper! I got the same shorts to, i picked up the 8 and there were tiny! Moved along to the ten hoping i would squeeze into them, that failed so i opted for a 12. x

  17. I love this outfit! I like how you have layered the striped top underneath, instead of using a plain one... shows that your not a dull person;) xx

  18. orr no way has it goen down in the sale!
    booooo! i paid 25 for it. what a nightmare! it loosk realyl good on you tho. and i love your shoes dear :)
    totally understand where your coming from with the rings. i wash my hands all the time and hate washing them with rings on.. so if i have like 6 rings on.. its annoying taking them all off and putting them back on with semi wet hands! hahaha... maybe we just hav to put up and shut up.

  25. You´re absolutely right with h&m sizing thingy. I also think that some of their items are slightly too oversized - I own a couple of things that are their size 6, which is like what...normal 32? and fit me no probs. I´ve gotta say, though, that it always makes me feel a wee bit better about myself - doesn´t happen every day that I leave a shop with 34, 34 and 32 sized things:D
    LOvely outfit, btw. I loooove your vans, will have to get a pair myself once I happen to have some money:)
