During a recent late night browse on ASOS, I came across these beauties, I think my eyes lit up at the sight of the pale pink, scalloped goodness I saw on the screen, ok so I'm probably getting a little carried away, but honestly, they're so pretty and basically what inspired me to do a little blog post about these and some of new additions I've been loving just lately. My instant thought was they were a really great homage to the Chloé Lauren Pumps, but of course at a fraction of the price. The only real difference is the laser cut hole in each scallop, but I personally wasn't looking for a direct copy and love that these offer a nod to the designer style, but have their own thing going on. They also go down to a UK size 2, and having tiny feet that never quite fill up a pair of size 3's, I knew these would probably be a lot more comfortable and I'd actually want to wear them instead of just look at them!
I've also been wearing this gorgeous monochrome fluted sleeve blouse lots in the past couple of weeks. You might be surprised to know it's from George! I popped into ASDA Living for something and ended up coming out with this. I'm a sucker for poker dots anyway, and I love the painted print effect, but the sleeves meant I couldn't walk away from it, I got it a couple of sizes bigger than I normally would and it covers my bump quite well as it's not too short, so pleased with this little purchase!
Before Christmas I was very kindly sent a bottle of Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb which I believe is a limited edition bottle. It still contains the classic fragrance with it's floral notes of jasmine, rose, and patchouli to name just a few. Having loved it for years, I had never actually owned a bottle myself and I'm so pleased I have this to add to my perfume collection. It's sits so sweetly on my dressing table and is fast becoming one of my favourites.
Not sure if I've mentioned before that I like scallops? I ordered this bag at the same time as the shoes and the colour match it really good. I might not necessarily wear the bag and shoes together but I can already feel Spring creeping in (optimistic I know) and I think I'll reach for this delicate little clutch quite a bit as it warms up.
Finally I thought I'd mention a couple of little homeware/office accessories I've pick up lately. I found these adorable Eiffel Tower scissors on eBay recently, and they were only a few pounds so decided to pick them up as a nice little addition to my desk, they come in other colours too. The cute Kate Spade Photo album is actually a few years old now, but they're still stocked in John Lewis. It was a present from Rikki and I love looking through the family photos he put inside. Finally the little pink and gold note pad was from TKMaxx. It's constantly sitting on my desk and I'm always jotting down notes and little reminders on it. I included it in a stationery haul last year, but I did another one last week and if you like this notepad, you'll probably love everything in that video too so I'll link it for you here.
If you've blogged about any new additions to your wardrobe or home recently, please put the link in the comments as I love being nosey! And let me know if you'd like to see more posts like this.
