Autumnal Dress Down Friday - Outfit post

The title of this post is misleading somewhat. For I wore not this to work for the dreaded DDF -  but on a holibobs day when I went off to Brighton. On a Monday no less. Post on my find's to follow soon... 

I bought this skirt on the Isle of Wight when I went there for New Year. I did say at the time that it did not look like much on the hanger, poorly displayed in my bathroom, but I quite like it on.

The weather in the UK is questionable at themoment, and I felt the need to dress for -  well -  Autumn, despite it being June. Sigh. I do love our weather, honest.

This whole outfit is thrifted from charity shops and eBay. Apart from the bag (Primark) the earrings from the Alibu Creations stall in Camden and the bumble bee pendant.

Yes people. Finally I found one that I liked. I have already mentioned my affection for bees before and I have been craving  a pendant for a while now, and especially since I spent a whole work day regretting staying up way too late the night before to watch The Sixth Sense. Again.  

I love the connection between Cole, his Mother and his deceased Grand Mother who visits regularly and moves her bumblebee pendant because "..she likes to look at it sometimes".

Now I have one of my velly own!! Huzzah!
