Smell the peach blossom

Happy Thursday guys! Yesterday I went to the COW student lock-in on West Street in Sheffield, and though I'll be posting about the vintage goodies I snapped up later in the week, I thought it was about time for an outfit post (though looking back, I'm not wearing much vintage at all considering...).

Creepers- c/o Spartoo
Polkadot dress - Topshop
Denim jacket - Topshop
Leather rucksack - vintage via eBay


Thanks to Hannah for taking these photos - I think they're some of my favourites I've had on the blog for a while. This beanie is surgically attached to my head this week, it's been keeping my ears snug and distracting from the fact that my roots are awful haha!

I've got loads of gorgeous pictures to share on the blog later this week. I've been to other COW stores in Nottingham and Birmingham but the Sheffield branch is definitely my favourite. The upstairs men's section is awesome for unique, chunky knits, and they've always got a brilliant selection of lace-up granny boots.

Have you lot found any vintage bargains lately?

  4. Boo I'm so jealous, I wish there was a COW in London. When I visited a friend at Sheffield uni I fell in love with COW- I remember bringing my boyfriend back a cool shirt and also a vintage Bennett on cardigan, good times. xx

  19. I LOVE this outfit! I really enjoy midi dresses at the moment and this one is lovely. I've been finding myself increasingly drawn to creepers lately but I'm never sure how I'd wear them, as I don't think they really fit my style, but this is such good inspiration.

    Great move with the roots hiding hat - my saviour during my brief hiatus from hair dye!
