The Bambi top – am I too old for this?

result-4

I wore my new Bambi top from Primark yesterday and when I found myself at a swing park it was obviously iPhone time. I played here as a child and the seesaw is almost as big and scary as I remember it. I felt about eight again when I nearly fell off.

Ahoy! The Whitepepper sailor dress

result

This sailor dress from The Whitepepper makes me feel a little jaunty. The big collar and loose fit make me feel like I’m on holiday – in 1920s beachwear. The first day I wore it out it got a few of those looks – little sideways glances that say the people in Milton Keynes are a bit confused. And by the second wear I got a “how long have you been in the navy?” from a bloke down the pub. “Two days,” I said.

I love this dress. I’d been staring at it online for about two months before I finally bought it and when it arrived the medium I’d picked was that bit too big. Then all of the peach sailor dresses had sold out on The Whitepepper’s website. If you’re in a similar panic, head to Asos where I got my small. The small fits really well but I’m still considering taking it in just an inch or so. But I do like the big, straight style.

I’ve had this mirror – from a market for just £8 – for about a year and a half. It’s finally on the wall.
