My New Favourite Bracelet

I ordered this bracelet from ASOS thinking it was going to be a pretty, dainty little thing. When it arrived in a fairly large box I knew something had gone terribly wrong - it was about 4x larger than I had expected it to be! Happily I've grown to love it, giant chunky beads and all. People can't help but ask about it when they see me - I like to say that it is my power limiter but not many people get my nerd jokes ;_;

Socks: Target
Shoes: Rivers (any fellow Aussies looking for comfortable saddle shoes should check them out - these babies were only $20! Bargain!)
Beret: Portmans
Bracelet: ASOS
Blouse: Thrifted

'Little Cupcakes' is my new favourite place to get an afternoon treat with the boyfriend - they make exactly what you'd think, given the name. They're delicious, but...

...being 'little', they are gone all too soon!

I also worked the bracelet into a more dressy outfit recently - I love how it can be used for both.

Yes, these pictures were taken in a pub bathroom. I hid out there for an hour and a half because my 'friends' were late and didn't bother to update me, and it was way too awkward hanging out at a bar with old men watching the football.

Can you tell I marathon America's next top model when I am meant to be studying for exams? Ooops. I'll be free soon enough, hoping to update more regularly then. Sorry for the photodump!

What a quirky bracelet; it looks like you are wearing a collection of everlasting gobstoppers... ;)

I adore the styling of your last outfit, beautiful.

Haha don't apologise, I love all these pics! You look amazing! That blue dress is absolutely stunning, and I love your more casual purple blouse outfit too. I am looking up where my local Rivers is now, so I can copy your shoes ;)

The bracelet looks lovely, too! Such great colours :) You have also inspired me to wear a beret today! x
