Drapey Tops & Bare Ankles!

I've a couple of outfits to share with you on today's post as in the midst of my Boden-mania I'm forgetting to show you what I've been wearing.
First up, it's last Tuesday at the charity shop and I'm sharing a drapey top that I got from Hush Boutique - a little Kent-based gem that I discovered via Avenue 57. When I saw this top on a couple of the girls here and here, I wanted to have one too! It's one size fits all and I ordered the pink -

Slouchy Crossover Top in Pink - Hush Boutique
White Top - H&M
Navy Jeans - Gok @ Sainsburys (AW12)
Stone Suede Boots - Mango (AW12)
Necklace - Vintage
Simply effortless, it drapes over the bits it needs to drape over and I'm loving the colour. My only small issue with it was that it's a tad big for a size 10 with no bust so it did fall off my shoulders at times but a wee stitch in the neckline soon sorted that out! At £20, it's a fabulous bargain in my books. Available in a range of colours via the Hush Boutique Facebook Page.
My second outfit is from yesterday - a momentous day when the ankles officially came out for a whole day (not just for a blog picture). And even more momentous, the feet came out briefly...

Zebra Scarf - Primark (SS12 - similar)
Cream Top - H&M (SS12)
White Vest - Primark
Boyfriend Jeans - Gap
Necklace - Accessorize (old)
Wearing my new Zalando navy pumps which are going to get SO much wear this summer. They are super comfy and only £21 with free delivery and returns
Anna Field Navy Ballet Pumps - Zalando
But then...then...I spotted these yellow lovelies in the charity shop. Home they came with me, the tootsies were painted and let out for all to see! But after about an hour of toe exposure, they were like blocks of ice so the pumps went on again. But it's all part of the acclimatisation we need to put our feet and legs through in this country!
Have you got your toes done yet and have they been out and about acclimatising?
I'm off now to sort the Boden party rails....and do another mega try on. 
I'll post as many pictures as I can on Twitter and Instagram over the next day or so and I'll pop up another post once the excitement has died down here. Wish me luck!

  8. I was scheduled to get the toes done today, but my children were home sick again (3 days in a row)! Hope to get painted up tomorrow, so that I'm not afraid to show my sad winter feet.

    Loved that Hush Boutique shop when I saw it at Avenue57, too. Wonder if they ship to the states, or if I could find it here.

  12. Well I have to say, you're wearing those boyfriend jeans like a pro now!

    And the pink top looks lovely on you - the colour is very fresh. One thing - how do you iron it? See, small things like this concern my small brain!
