Jungle Drum


"Hey, I’m in love,
My fingers keep on clicking to the beating of my heart...”

This post’s TUNE comes from Emiliana Torrini. And what a beautiful name she has!! So whilst listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s on YouTube, this little video popped up on the side, and given her lovely name I thought I’d check it out (yes, I’m that shallow, I’m the type of person who literally judges a book by its cover). I was not disappointed!!! This is such a quirky beautiful little tune, and her voice is absolutely gorgeous, definitely worth a listen, which you can do here. You can also visit her website here.

Hey, I’m in love... with this outfit...





Skirt: River Island (old)
Top: Primark (old)
Belt: Primark (old)
Shoes: Primark (old)
Bag: Peacocks (old)
Coat: New Look (very old!!)

Today, when I took these the sky was grey and it was raining outside, shock horror! So anyway, I thought it might be nice to stick on something slightly summery with a winter twist to help cheer me up on such a drizzly dull day! I’m not normally a fan of big gypsy skirts, but this one I love, I don’t know if it’s because it was free, maybe that helps me love it (my sister gave it to me out of her vast wardrobe), but anywho, this one is bloody lovely, especially the colour. Stick it with a bargain top from Primark and happy days.

Of course, as its winter you do need a lovely coat to keep you warm so I dug out my extremely old fur jacket and stuck that on to keep me toasty (when I say this jacket is old, I remember buying it when I was still in school, and not even sixth form, so about 10/11 years ago...).

So there you go, another outfit, another day!

Stay beautiful people,
