Wild Thing

“Wild thing...you make my heart sing...
You make everything Groovy...”

This post’s TUNE comes from none other than The Troggs! Now you may or may not have heard about his band, but if nothing else I really recommend listening to this song here. Yes they may be quite old now, but you can’t deny that this is a hell of a tune, I guess it’s most definitely ‘retro’!

See I knew you’d love it! Groovy baby!

You can visit their website here.


Now, on to more pressing matters....



Skirt: H&M (old)
Belt: H&M (old)
Blouse: Primark (£5.00)
Tights: Primark (£2.00)
Boots: New Look (£19.99)
Satchel: Christmas Prezzy, Cambridge Satchel (old)
Coat: New Look (old)

I haven’t done an outfit post in what feels like forever, hell, I haven’t really done any kind of post, so I thought I’d get off to a good start and hopefully continue well too! I wore this outfit before Christmas on a trip up to London for the day, so I figured I would dig it out, stick it on, take some photos and then put them on here for your viewing pleasure. Let me know what you think!

For Christmas I had a brand new shiny camera, an actual SLR one, I’ve never had one before so I apologise if the photos are a bit ropey for the next few weeks, I’m trying to work out exactly how to use it and having a potch about with all the different settings.

Anywho, hope you’ve all had a lovely holiday, unfortunately it’s back to work for me now, boooo!

Toodle Pip,
